Since 2014, New York City’s Serendipity3 has laid claim to the Guinness World Records for the most expensive sandwich. The opulent sandwich must be ordered 48 hours in advance for chef's to begin the involved process of making the over-the-top sandwich.
The Quintessential Grilled Cheese is served on two pieces of French Pullman champagne bread which is made with Dom Perignon champagne, with white truffle butter and the very rare Caciocavallo Podolico cheese. When the sandwich is ready to be served, it is cut diagonally and each half gets a layer of edible gold flakes.

Caciocavallo Podolico cheese is so rare that only 25,000 cows in Italy are able to produce the cheese between May and June.
Instead of traditional tomato soup, the sandwich is served alongside a South African lobster tomato bisque as a dipping sauce.
The restaurant also holds the Guinness World Records for the most expensive French fries and the most expensive milkshake.
