Kai, a London restaurant formerly known as Mr. Kai, recently served a bowl of the most expensive soup in the world. The primarily Chinese restaurant’s expensive dish was priced at £108 ($214 USD). They call it “Buddha Jumps over the Wall.”
So named because, as a vegetarian, the Buddha was forced to sneak out of the monastery and “jump over the wall” to enjoy it, the soup typically calls for such expensive ingredients as abalone, quail eggs and shark fin. Kai’s soup delivers on the shark fin and abalone while also including scallops, ginseng and gold. It also delivers on the typical one to two day prep time and then some. Kai requires at least five days notice to prepare the expensive soup.
Kai is located in Mayfair and is owned by former barrister and 2004 Olympic trap shooter Bernard Yeoh. The world’s most expensive soup is prepared by Kai’s head chef Alex Chow.
