At last, the omelette gets the unnecessary four-star treatment with the £90 (equivalent to $135 US) version being served at the Boisdale restaurant in London. What goes inside such a pricey breakfast dish? Scottish lobster, crab, Italian shaved truffles and English asparagus, of course.
Also, eggs from the black-headed gull (£5 each) that "can be gathered for only six weeks a year by a small number of licensed collectors." The whole thing is finished off with a splash of fine champagne, well, because, why not? Says one fan of the gull's eggs: "They have a magnificent flavour and make an incredibly light and fluffy omelette. And, of course, they are ridiculously expensive."
