That's One Expensive Meal there Kanye.

Kanye West Gets Food Delivery From U.K.
LONDON Mar 4, 2007 (AP)— 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.

You know if it was Bono this thread would be flooded with "he can afford it, so why not?" posts.

Just like the "flying the hat over the oceans" story that turned out to be so true ...and it's just funny coming from the genre that always yaps about "keeping it real" yet it has the biggest money grabbers.

that's an absurd amount of money spent on something that's going to turn into a few turds.

Why wouldn't the chef just fly over and prepare the food in New York? Why fly the food across the ocean?

That makes no sense to me either.

Plus it isn't as if you can't get good Indian food in NYC. WTF.

It's not actually Kanye doing this. It's a promoter doing it for a meal Kanye will be attending. He may not even know it's happening (aside from it being all through the media now).

Must be some great Indian.
