If by any chance befall these days in Melbourne and see the Maille Mustard Mobile truck, you have a chance to taste world’s most expensive hot dog. Mustard giant La Maison Maille are the creators of the ‘hundred dollar hot dog’ and after trips to Perth and Adelaide, have brought it to Melbourne for the annual Good Food and Wine Show. If you wonder what makes this snack so expensive (£51.11 – or $100 AUD), the grass-fed Aussie beef snag is complimented with a French-made Chablis white wine and black Perigord truffle mustard, first served up in Dijon, France in 1747. Manufacturer claims that the mustard itself worth $100.
Cheaper versions such as a Maille Haute Dog for $10 and a Maille Chablis Haute Dog for $25 are also available.
And, while Maille is touting the Haute Dog as the world’s most expensive sausage-and-bun combo, the Guinness Book of World Records reserves that dubious honour to Seattle-based Tokyo Dog’s “Juuni Ban,” which costs US$169 (nearly AUD $235).
