    LONDON - APRIL 10: A sandwich which costs GBP 85.50 ( (USD 148.30) sits on display at the department store Selfridges on April 10, 2006 in London, England. Selfridges have put on sale what they claim is London's most expensive sandwich. The cost is down to the Wagyu beef that makes up most of the filling. The other ingredients include fresh lobe foie gras, black truffle mayonnaise, brie de meaux, rocket, red pepper and mustard confit, and English plum tomatoes. (Photo by Scott Barbour/Getty Images)
