Question: What’s the most expensive sandwich on a menu in America?

Answer: The $214 “Quintessential Grilled Cheese” at the New York City’s Serendipity3 restaurant holds the Guinness World Record for world’s most expensive sandwich. This isn’t an April Fool’s joke, that’s really the price. Orders must be placed 48 hours in advance for the sandwich, which gets roughly half a pound of rare caciocavallo podolic cheese, made from the milk of cows that only lactate two months a year. The made-to-order bread is brushed with white truffle oil with gold flakes mixed into it, and then grilled. More edible gold leaf is laid on before serving. And yes, at the end of all that, you still basically just have a grilled cheese sandwich, though it does glitter a little.
