Domino's Japan via Eater
Domino's recent trend of gourmet-ing the shit out of their food jumped to new heights recently.

Introducing, from the company's Japanese chain (via Eater), the Prestige Quattro, which is not a sequel to the Hugh Jackman film. This is the $50 (¥3,900) unbelievably fancy pizza that features four sides of gourmetspolsion: snow crab in white sauce seasoned with truffles, Mangalitsa pork (which Japan Domino's notes is Hungary's "edible national treasure), and [drumroll] fresh mozzarella and tomato.

Imagine dumping three gourmet meals and a lot of tomatoes on top of a Domino's cheese pizza and you get the idea. Notably, Japanese Domino's is also offering the Quattro Meat the World, which has Iberico pork. America better step it up if it wants to compete: Japan McDonald's has already kicked open the door to 2012 with the Grand Canyon Burger.

Also, hey, why don't we have an noted "edible national treasure"? Baconham Lincoln anyone?

As someone who's been traveling to Japan for many years, it doesn't take much to run up a $50 tab on food there, especially in Tokyo.  It's the most expensive city to eat out in that I've ever been to (unless you limit yourself to soba noodle shops or fast food).  Moscow is a close second.

Does that include delivery to Dallas?

Iberico, Mangalica, snow crab? Wow...

As far as an American edible treasure I would say a cheeseburger, but they got us there, too.

$60 worth of Domino's Pizza is not even worth 50 bucks. Stuff is shite!

Nobody pays $50 for a pizza-no one.  Even they know a Digiorno, and throw some jalapeno's on top, is better.

Sorry holmes, China owns us, like a lot of us, like billions in our debt.

Also Leningrad is known now as St Petersburg? Are you writing from the distant past?

It's Istanbul, not Constantinople.  People just like it better that way.

Only Leningrad has borsht. Probably, $50.00 a bowl. Spoon is extra.

China also owns 10's of millions of young restless males with no sexual outlet, a burgeoning middle class with newly disposable income and noplace to spend it and a population that is ever more dissatisfied with their own governments treatment of them, not to mention an awareness (due to the internet, however much they try to restict it) that there is a much wider world beyond the "Great Wall".

They've got plenty of problems of their own to address before the "Yellow Hoard" overruns our local Domino's.

I was just going with what The Kerg listed. He didn't list St. Petersburg. He listed Leningrad. And that's what I went with. OK? If he had listed Stalingrad, I would have gone with that.

I thought it was called New Yawk.
