They say you don't need a silver fork to enjoy a good meal. For a normal person, a good meal need not be very expensive. Most of the times, a Pizza or Dal Makhani are enough to make us happy but there are people who order outstandingly expensive foods, because... well, simply because they can!
Here are the world's most expensive foods which you can't afford.
