London’s 10 most expensive dishes

3: Kobe beef isiyaki at Sushisamba – £1,000

Despite its £1,000 price tag, this showstopper is a permanent fixture on the menu at Brazilian / Peruvian / Japanese fusion restaurant Sushisamba in the Heron Tower.

With its killer cocktails, breathtaking views and pumping soundtrack, a night at the restaurant already feels like an incredible treat, but those wishing to push the boat out further can do so with an eye-wateringly expensive portion of kobe, which you cook yourself on a small square hot stone using chef’s tweezers.

The beauty of the DIY approach is that you can cook the melt-in-the-mouth marbled meat to your liking. And at that price it would be sacrilege to cremate it. The beef needs the briefest of introductions to the hot stone to warm it up a bit but still retain its foie gras-like silkiness.

Those keen to taste kobe but less hot on the idea of splashing out £1,000 for the privilege can order the kobe temaki hand roll for a mere £26.
