I realized the other day that my favorite foods fall into two categories: super cheap and super expensive.
Some of my favorite cheap foods are potatoes,buckwheat, hummus. But the majority of my absolutely favorite foods are pricey: caviar, oysters, champagne, (yes its’ a food!), truffles, quality cheeses, black truffles, lobster, crab, seafood in general, sushi. I could pretty much live off of cheese, champagne, seafood and truffles for the rest of my life. I also recently discovered that I love macarons.
What are some of your favorite expensive foods?

Beef tenderloin, lamb rack, lobster, raw oysters, and pretty much anything fancy and tasty. I freaking love food.

I love most things you can find in a nice French resturant, truffles, scallops, nice chocolates (Hotel Chocolate, Green and Black’s), nice cheeses….a few things. Not lobster though. And cavier tastes like fish flavoured fluid.

I voted middle of the road, but I guess that is relative for my location – I love duck, foie gras, quality cheese…but most things I can get here for a reasonable price which I know would cost me more back in the US.
Side note, you must visit Champagne sometime. Bottles that are sold for 100 dollars are only about 15 euros if you buy it on site. It was one of the best wine tasting trips I ever took.

CHAMPAGE! I recently became very interested in rosé, too.
Seafood/sushi/raw oysters. I don’t eat red meat so I don’t care about steak, but I can easily put away $100 worth of sushi or a dozen raw oysters. I get copper river salmon once a year when it runs, and my favorite restaurant serves it at $60/plate.

I certainly have a taste for some of the finer/more expensive foods, but one of my most favorite dishes is “Pho” and it’s usually around $8 for a huge bowl 🙂

Middle of the road like Top Sirloin, a baked potato and a glass of Pinot is probably as far as I would go. Seafood…I usually stick with Salmon and Scallops. I do enjoy a nice macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi now and then.
…. I never developed a taste for the expensive stuff…certain types of sushi like spicy tuna rolls I do like…Oysters…no thanks. Not really a fan of white wines and some of those more fancy cheeses. My husband laughs because I guess he said my nose curls up when I try some of these things but act like it was okay anyway… I will sometimes spit it out in my napkin.
I could also live off of cheap stuff like Macaroni and Cheese… I love me some Mac n’ Cheese. Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a bowl of tomato soup…. Chicken and Dumplings….BBQ with corn on the cob and sweet potato…Beans and Rice with Carne Asada!! Yummy! Probably because I grew up on stuff like that…I just love it.

One of the nicest steakhouses here makes a to-die-for bacon scalloped potato dish. And you obviously have to get a steak too.

@Ellegee: I must have been a mermaid in my past life because I can pretty much live off of seafood. Just the mention of oysters makes me a little happier.
Can’t stand meat though.

I think probably most of the things I liked are considered “cheap.” It’s hard to get too expensive on a vegetarian-almost-vegan diet!!!

It’s not that I have expensive taste, but more that I like quality food. That costs more.
But cheese…that’s where my taste gets really expensive. Also wine and champagne.

I’ll also say champagne. And Cheese. LOVE me some fancy cheese!

I love sushi and cheap bbq platters so I’m on either end of the spectrum. I love Thai food too which I can get cheap and delicious. I love steak, but I dont care for expensive steak. Honestly, I can get a tenderlion from my super market and if I manage to make it right it, I prefer it to any $50+ steak I’ve had a restaurant.

@Meowkers: oh yes, Champagne and seafood will always have my heart/wallet.
I also really love fruit, veg and eggs though… They make up the majority of my diet because they are so affordable and so versatile!
