London’s 10 most expensive dishes

6: Caviar omelette at The Ritz – £300

If you’re eating breakfast at The Ritz then you’re already doing pretty sweetly in life, but if you want to feel that little bit more pampered, then why not order its signature caviar omelette, priced at £300 a pop?

Part of the historic hotel’s ‘prestige’ breakfast, the omelette (or scrambled eggs if you’d prefer) is loaded with 50g of Oscietra caviar. If you’re feeling a little less flush you can opt for the Perigord truffle scrambled eggs for a mere £85.

One of the most prized types of caviar eclipsed only by Beluga, Oscietra comes from a sturgeon of the same name that can live for up to 50 years. Running the colour gamut from deep brown to light gold, the paler roe is more sought after as it’s richer in flavour and come from older sturgeon.
