(Tinmoitruong.vn) - The items on this list are the best of the best and command extremely high price tags because of their rarity and the amount of time involved before they are ready to be sold on the market.

Check out some of the most expensive foods in Vietnam:

 

King Crabs

 

King crabs are a superfamily of crab-like decapod crustaceans chiefly found in cold seas. Because of their large size and the taste of their meat, many species are widely caught and sold as food, the most common being the red king crab.

These crabs are found in Alaska (US), Russia, Japan and the Republic of Korea. In some supermarkets in Hanoi, an imported King crab weighing 2kg costs VND5 million each. In restaurants, it sells for VND3.5 million per kilogramme.

 

In Vietnam, this kind of crab is caught in clean and deep islands such as Phu Quy and Cam Ranh. However, it’s not an easy catch for fishermen.

 

Shark cartilage

 

Shark cartilage is a dietary supplement made from the dried and powdered cartilage of a shark—from the tough material that composes a shark's skeleton.
