2000 pesos is not $500 its actually $40


hahaha!! math is not one of my favorite class eh! sorry poh!! kakahiya aman!!!!



right now, its actually 50 USD...
the exchange rate is 1 USD = 40 PHP


Ok folks, since the topic was most expensive meal you've tried, I did experience one not too long ago:

To celebrate our 16th anniversary, I took my wife & kids to a local restaurant that catered to steaks (in Sta Clara it's name is Alexander's). They are one of the few local joints to provide aged beef as well as Kobe Beef. Now in case you're not too familiar with aging process for the meat, this allows the meat to get tenderized in it's own juices, thus allowing better quality. But all this comes at a price, & that's why not all steak places offers this option. Most of the time, higher end steak houses will provide this service to their clientele. But I won't bore you guys with the details, & as for Kobe Beef...let's just say that it goes above & beyond what westerners would consider tender. Just "Google" Kobe Beef next time when you get a chance to get the full details about this wonderful, yet extremely delicate piece of meat. BTW, I was also informed that this beef has its own grading system as well...

To make a long story short, wife & myself had what the restaurant called the Kobe Beef Experience...& the kids both had prime rib. The meal was indeed memorable for it's delicacy & taste...but when the bill came, my wallet jumped out the door screaming!!!

The bill came to: $800!!! (no tip yet)...ARE YOU FRIGGIN' KIDDING ME???!!! Let's just say that will be the first & last time I will have Kobe Beef...lmao Just wanted to share this with you folks because though the meat was indeed memorable, & imo, quite honestly worth the price I paid...this experience is just a once in a lifetime for me...HAHAHAHAHA...

my dad spent 5,000 pesos for a restaurant we ate in
Posted 5/12/08
I think it might've been somewhere around $2000 - $3000 in HK money which is around $300 - $500 in Canada. It was for my birthday. We ate dinner at a super expensive Japanese restaurant. But it was worth it. It was the best Japanese food that I've ever tasted outside of Japan.

So, I live next to one of the most expensive towns in the USA..... Aspen. (an international destination ski resort) When I go out to eat there, I have spent as much as $500.00 (US) on a meal for three.... are there other places on Earth where prices are so inflated?? Just wonderin'..... The particular meal I'm talkin about was at Takah Sushi....... Delicious!!

LMAO!!! That's our mortgage for a month!!! Of course, we live in the south where cost of living is pretty cheap, but STILL!!! My husband and I want to try Kobe, as well, but we might as well save a little more and go vacation in Japan... <tongue in cheek>

I live a poor, poor life compared to some of you. <sigh>

We NEVER went out to eat when I was a kid, unless it was to a Taco Bell (my dad thinks that Taco Bell represents fine ethnic dining... ). Of course, he never had a restaurant meal until his HS senior trip (he graduated in a class of 7 ppl and was DIRT poor--like the poor you see in 3rd world countries, seriously), so, I guess I can give him a break. His 20 yrs in the Navy didn't change that, either. You'd expect a world traveler to eat like one. He lived on Mac and Cheese, wherever he was in the world.

Anyway, I think the most expensive meal I personally have ordered was in the $30 neighborhood. And THAT was a big affair for me. I always feel guilty spending more than $15 on a single dish, since that money is better spent on our kids.

some flat spagetti with white sauce
pieces of lettuce with chicken parts

hmm there are two occurances that i can think of.. well another that my sister took part in...

my sister ate at a place in seattle that was a $100 to get in... so after you are in there is a full course meal though and entertainment circus stuffs.. but drinks was more and tip was more...

ummm i once got a grilled mahi mahi dish that was almost $100 on its own... it was delicious though.. and my sister bought it for me so it wasn't so affecting.... till i got a little bit older...

and then there is the big bomb of guam at one of the hotels where they try to rip off as many people as they can they have a great restraunt.. called al dente... i wasn't feeling well when a friend invited me to go so i went and just got an appetizer soup *remember that is only an appetizer.. * it was more than $70........ such a good friend.. and that was one really damn good soup!
