Gold-laced sushi is only appropriate for people whom live large and lavish lifestyles. Made by ambitious Filipino chef Angelito Araneta Jr, our favourite seaweed treat comes wrapped in a thin 24-carat gold leaf and affluently encrusted with .20-carat African diamonds on top. It also comes with a $2700 price tag, making it the world’s most expensive sushi to date. While it can be found in a restaurant in Manila, the chef says his unique fishy roll is often used during courtship and marriage proposals.
