I was fortunate enough to have eaten sun dried Japanese abalone, Italian white Alba truffles, Russian Beluga caviars...etc. However, tonight, during a New Year's eve pot luck dinner, I think I have just eaten one of the most expensive western dish in my life!!
A friend of my wife brought along a ' Braised Ox-tail with red wine and root vegetables'. During the dinner, the husband disclosed to us that her wife went down to the basement cellar and at random, picked out a couple of bottles for the dish. Her choice!! the1990 Chateau Lafite Rothschild at around US$1000 per bottle!! No wonder the dish tasted soooo good!! Ha!!
Any fellow chowhounders have similar 'expensive' experiences??!!
