The last time we mentioned Serendipity 3, the very popular restaurant (even among celebrities) in Upper East Side of Manhattan, it was in relation to some incredibly expensive desserts. Back then we told you about the Golden Opulence Sundae, adorned with edible gold ($1,000), and the even more impressive Frrrozen Haute Chocolate, priced at $25,000.
Today we bring another record-breaking dish to your attention: the most expensive hot dog in the world, called the Serendipity Foot-Long Haute Dog. What’s very surprising about it is the fact that it is much more affordable than you would expect it to be: the most expensive hot dog costs only $69.
It is a creation of Serendipity’s chef in collaboration with the owner of the restaurant, Stephen Bruce. As the name suggests, the hot dog measures one foot in length (30 cm). It is made from pure beef, grilled in white truffle oil. It comes in a pretzel bun that’s imported directly from Germany and it is topped with medallions of duck foie gras, black truffles and caramelized Vidalia onions. It is served with Dijon mustard and a special tomato ketchup.
If you want to try the opulent hot dog yourself, you will have to order it 24 hours in advance, because the restaurant needs to fly in the special ingredients to have them all fresh for the secret recipe.
