At 25 years old, I can say with near certainty, I have eaten the most expensive meal I will ever eat in my entire life. EVER. How expensive you ask? One thousand dollars for four people expensive. My family participated in a 9 course, five hour dinner marathon Sunday night at a small restaurant called The Herbfarm. Here are a few pictures of the joint…
And here is an iPhone snapshot of our menu…
There are three things you will notice in the menu. 1. The theme was focused around Salmon. 2. There are a lot of fancy words used to describe each course, most of which I can’t pronounce. 3. There was a glass of wine served with each course…resulting in nine glasses of wine poured…resulting in a lot of drunk old people.
The restaurant seated about 70 people and was completely full. Reservations are required months in advance, and each attendant must pay a $50 security deposit to make a reservation. We made our reservations months ago. Basically, this five diamond restaurant means serious business. The only reason the Ninja clan found themselves seated amongst a bunch of disgustingly rich old people was because of Groupon. That’s right, Groupon. Apparently, they ran a promotion a few months back and my mom took advantage (she’s kind of a Groupon whore).
I have no idea what else to say about the experience besides it was over the top, weird, but a great adventure. Thanks mom for taking me out to the most expensive meal I will ever have in my entire life. You da bomb dot com.
What’s the most expensive meal you have ever eaten? Would you ever drop $250 on dinner?
p.s. let’s have a moment of silence for all the George Washington’s that sacrificed themselves for the sake of the Ninja families appetite. You will be missed 🙂
