I was in London last week, and had to go and check out the home of the Worlds Most Expensive Sandwich
, Selfridges in London.
For GBP$85, you too can have this fine sandwich. Problem is, it's a takeaway sandwich shop, so it's a bit hard to find a seat! I had a chat to the guy behind the counter and found some interesting stuff about it... read on!
So far, they've sold 93 of these sandwiches, about 1 a week. (I was soooo tempted to buy it too.. haha). The sandwich shown in the display cabinet isn't the one you'd get if you bought one. They usually make one for display purposes every few days. Once you've bought the sandwich, they summon their head chef from the restaurant downstairs, and they make you a fresh sandwich at the sandwich bar. It takes about 10 minutes to make.
