I love gourmet twists on home cooking classics, and this is the most “gourmet” sandwich I’ve ever seen. Just take a look at the ingredients after the mouthwatering picture. I wouldn’t mind just getting my hands on some black truffle mayonnaise.
World’s most expensive sandwich: $148.33
The ingredient list:
- Wagyu beef
- Fresh lobe foie gras
- Black truffle mayonnaise
- Brie de meaux
- Rocket (I don’t know what this is?)
- Red pepper and mustard confit
- English plum tomatoes
- 24-hour fermented sour dough bread
Not bad. I’ve seen almost half of the country. I didn’t count the states I visited when I was really young (like California). Looks like I still have some traveling to do!

Uh…I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

I’m posting this a little late, but here’s a picture I took from the roof of my building during the first inning yesterday. I didn’t get to go to the game, but Roy O looked great. The hitting left a little to be desired, but I’ll cut them some slack because Donrelle Willis is a pretty good pitcher. I’m going to the game tonight. I expect Andy to hold it down well, and, hopefully, the bats will pick it up. It’s great to have baseball back!
UPDATE: My favorite Astros/everything Houston blogger, Tom Kirkendall, has his 2006 ‘Stros preview up. His posts are always full of juicy sabermetrics. Makes me happy.
