Last April 1, 2012 a Filipino Chef, Angelito Araneta Jr., attempted the record of  “World’s Most Expensive Sushi”. Later, an official of the Guiness World of Book Records officially announces that a new record was set. In 2010, the same chef made the previous record for the said department worth P91,800 pesos (US$ 1,978.15).

Chef Araneta has been featured in different news, because of his luxurious food creations. He created many expensive food with lots of luxisious items around.

The new record features five pieces of sushi has 24-carat gold leaf each wrapping a high class Japanese Rice cooked with 70-year-old virgin water, 12-year-old Italian Balsamic Vinegar and muscovado sugar. The rice is covering pink salmon from Norway, cucumber, foie grass, mango, steamed and pickled sea cucumber, genuine crab meat and buttery mayonnaise.

It has been reported that gold can be consumed in few amounts. There are also claims that gold when entered the body will help indigestion and rejuvenation. There are also historical records that gold is used in earlier ages for foods. According to studies the water we drink has the composition of gold inside.

Making it more expensive, the 24-year-old known as “Karat Chef” added pearls from Palawan and placed African diamonds for the new record.

To buy this you must have Php 198,999.00 or more than $4,700 US Dollars, a price that when you paid for, you’ll going to have stomachache. I’ll buy myself a laptop instead.

Well, I don’t want to break the trip, but the sushi was created for luxury and records only. Good thing, the record was set. If you are a guy who wanted to propose to your girlfriend, this sushi is a good thing to order.

I’m not sure if there are people ordered it and consumed it.
