A Turkish eatery in Canary Wharf, London, is daring you to try its £1,000 ($1,436) Wagyu beef kebab. Waterfront restaurant, Hazev unveiled what is being dubbed the world's most expensive kebab on 29 March.
"I decided to make something unusual. I created that 'Royal Kebab'. Yes, I think we do something nice and expensive. We used high quality meat and vegetables and olive oil and nice 25-year-old vinegar," said Head chef Onder Sahan. "We try to change the kebab image, and then we show people if you have good taste and then you can make it whatever way you like it."
The main ingredients in the kebab include Japanese Wagyu beef, morel mushrooms and 25-year-old Italian vinegar. A mixture of milk-fed lamb and goat is also minced into the kofta.
Accompanying ingredients, include French Chaumes cheese, courgette flowers, Turkish basil, Jerusalem artichokes and La Vallee des Baux olive oil.
Sahan hopes to inspire other chefs to "do it better" and use his kebab "as an example". "I'm really very very happy if someone do it and I'm very interested. I'm waiting if someone makes it better than this and I'm happy to pay more than £1,000," said Sahan, according to a a Daily Mail report. Sahan was awarded the country's best kebab chef honour at the fourth British Kebab Awards in March 2016.
