Serendipity 3 Haute Dog

Frankly, not many of us would spend $69 for a hot dog. But on Friday, Manhattan tourist Trudy Tant did just that.

Famous New York restaurant/ice cream shop Serendipity 3 decided to celebrate National Hot Dog Day on July 23 by cooking up a record-winning footlong. The most expensive "Haute Dog" was a 12-inch, pure beef hot dog, grilled in white truffle oil, placed in a salted pretzel bread bun toasted with white truffle butter, topped with medallions of duck foie gras with black truffles with side condiments of black truffle Dijon mustard, caramelized Vidalia onions and heirloom tomato ketchup. If this sounds appetizing (not), you too can order your own; the restaurant just asks for 24 hours notice. Serendipity 3 also holds Guinness World Records for the most expensive ice cream sundae ($1,000) and the largest hot chocolate (4 gallons).
