The bar was clearly not set high enough, because a few months ago, the Cliveden in Berkshire (one of the Von Essen Private Country House Hotels) started serving the £100 von Essen Platinum Club Sandwich.
Which sandwich would you shell out $200 for? From a weight standpoint alone, the "MacDonald" is the clear winner. You save £15 and get 65 more grams of food (595g vs. 530g). But even without considering weight, I think I would still go for the department store beef and foie gras sarnie over the more regal country hotel club. As much as I love aged Spanish pork, beef and duck liver is going to beat out chicken any day of the week (even if that chicken is endorsed by a French king).
No word on who will be stepping up next to challenge the £100 sandwich price tag, although with the current exchange rate, it's pretty safe to say it's not going to come from the U.S. Is there a sandwich you'd pay $200 for? Feel free to share in the comments.
