See The Restaurant That Is Charging $100 For One Meatball

Updated March 12, 2018

Crafted with love and the best ingredients. This meatball is one of the world’s most tasty, succulent, and full-of-flavor food items you’ll ever have. And while it is expensive, it won’t necessarily break the bank. For $100 you can now try the world’s most costly meatballs. Are you going to go for it? The meatball is now available to eat in New York City (where else could a chef get away with it?).

While this meatball certainly sounds good, you have only a limited time to try it. On March 9, for one day only, you’ll be able to bit into the large ball of meat at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse in Manhattan as part of National Meatball Day.

The meatball has seven ounces of Wagyu beef. But that’s only the beginning of this sumptuous item. It also has foie gras inside it as well as truffle cheese. The meatball is then topped off with some shavings of expensive black truffle. If you’re a foodie, you’re going to want to open up your purse and try this succulent item.

Inside Edition was lucky enough to go to the restaurant and learn about the recipe. And they even got to taste a bit of the world’s most expensive meatball.

The creator of the Italian meatball is the restaurant’s executive chef Juan Tourn. And he was willing to open his kitchen to the news crew and teach them how to make the expensive meatball.

Inside Edition described how he mixed the essential ingredients, which were Wagyu beef, onion, garlic, parsley, basil, eggs, Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs and black truffle.

When Tourn rolls the balls of meat out, he then stuffs them with foie gras and truffle cheese. He cooked them until they were golden brown and looked absolutely delicious.

Then Tourn slathered the meatballs in rich shallot and champagne cream sauce. And as we mentioned above, he then topped it with shaved black truffle.

Inside Edition sent Steven Fabian to sample the dish. And he was impressed with the taste and process.

“That looks… wow,” Fabian said. “No wonder it’s $100.”

Tourn pairs the meatball with 2012 Prunotto Barolo red wine. And it will only be available from 11:30 am to 10 pm on March 9 – National Meatball Day.

“People are really going crazy for it,” staff said.

And Fabian admitted that the dish was worth every cent.

“It is awesome,” he said after a taste. “That’s worth it. I gotta say, this is worth $100. Wow!”

The video below shows you the meatball and what goes into the expensive dish. Viewers like you shared hundreds of comments on the Inside Edition YouTube page. The following were some of them and most thought it was way too expensive.

“Waste of money, give me normal food any day, I’d also rather give the money to homeless people before spending it on something so worthless.”

One viewer thanked Tourn for showing his method. Maybe he’ll go buy the ingredients himself.
