Coffee from ferret poop
€452 per cup
In Indonesia, a local ferret species named the civet cat likes to eat beans; however, their small digestive systems cannot digest grains as a whole and in their stool can be found processed grains. It sounds disgusting, but from these grains is made a rare and expensive coffee. Many argue that the experience and enjoyment gained from drinking this coffee is worth the money.
Smoked and jazz-dried salmon €150 per fillet
Not all dishes are expensive because of their ingredients, evident in the case of a dried salmon from Stoke Newington. In fact, the secret ingredient of their dried salmon is ‘jazz’. So, this kiln-dried smoked salmon has jazz played to it, and many believe that this is exactly what contributes to the quality of the salmon and makes it stands out from the rest!

€7,250 for 250 g

It has, according to producer Kenneth Benning, a magical effect on your health; although this exact effect on health is not revealed, we apparently need to thank the African claw frog eggs.
