Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous

I found this on CNN. Pretty interesting I should say..

“If Kanye West were to walk into the British Raj’s dining room and order dinner, it would cost the rapper about $17.50. But since the restaurant is delivering — from Wales to New York — it’s going to cost a bit more.

For a feast of onion bhajees, chapati breads, biryanis, pappadums, a specially prepared fish dish and vegetables on the side, the bill will top $3,900, plus travel and accommodation for the restaurant’s head chef.

The meal was requested for West and seven guests by a music promotion company, the restaurant said Sunday. The company had previously ordered food from the restaurant near Cardiff, Wales, for an after-show party for a Snoop Dogg concert in London.

But this is different. Normally, they don’t deliver outside a 3-mile radius of the restaurant, which is about 150 miles west of London.

“I was horrified when I heard about this request because of the distance involved,” said the restaurant’s head waiter, Tarik Mohammed. “It’s a long way, and our reputation is on the line. We are doing every thing to make sure the food gets there safely and every thing is aboveboard.”

The meal will be prepared, cooled, shrink-wrapped and packed in dry ice in the British Raj’s kitchens and — along with head chef Kaysor Ahmed — will be helicoptered from Wales to London’s Heathrow Airport on Tuesday.

From there, the chef is to hop a flight to New York — monitoring the food’s temperature all the way — clear customs, and head for Manhattan, where the meal is to be served during a meeting Wednesday.

The fee was arrived at by estimating the restaurant’s takings for two evenings, the time Ahmed will be away, Mohammed said.”

  1. not only is he crazy he’s also dumb. I mean being rich doesnt mean u should order food from so far away when u can get the same from somewhere closer (its not abt the money, its abt being practical). U neva know how that food tasted or looked like when it got there!I think he just wanted to make it to the news. Damn celebrity show-offs.Keshi.

  2. @Keshi, I agree it was not practical on his part and he only wanted to be in news.. but then I guess he has so much money around that he does not know how to spend it. So why not order food from Wales..

  3. if he doesnt know how to spend it then he can perhaps give some to those who cant even have one meal per day. there r many like that in the world.Keshi.
