London’s 10 most expensive dishes

1: Samundari Khazana curry at Bombay Brasserie – £2,000

And finally… topping our list is a curry created by Bombay Brasserie in Kensington that costs the same as a family holiday to the tropics.

Launched during the credit crunch in 2009, the Samundari Khazana curry, meaning ‘seafood treasure’, featured sea snails, lobster, Devon crab, white truffle and Beluga caviar-fllled cherry tomatoes wrapped in gold leaf.

The decadent ensemble was created by Bombay Brasserie’s head chef at the time, Prahlad Hedge, who described it as “a real experience”. The basis of the recipe was inspired by a curry his mum used to make. Finished with a generous shaving of white truffle, the dish was created to mark the launch of Slumdog Millionaire on DVD.
