$43 Hot Dogs; $47 Burgers And $55 Caesar Salads: A Look At The Davos Menu

Tyler Durden's picture

Billionaires may live in a world untroubled by such petty concerns as rising costs of living and declining real wages, but like everyone else they have to eat. And pay. The picture below shows what the menu prices, in Swiss Francs, are for various meals offered for sale to the billionaires and other upper class "luminaries" currently congregating in Davos.  Some examples converted to USD: Hot Dog: $43; Burger: $47; Caesar salad: $55.


This is what a $55 caesar salad looks like:


And said $43 hot dog:


Then again, the Swiss restaurant, like dutiful capitalists, are smart and merely introduced the "Billionaire surge pricing" strategy right out of the Uber playbook, which - when catering to people for whom things like "cost" are absolutely irrelevant, makes perfect sense.

As the regular menu at the same restaurant shows, outside of Davos season the cheeseburger is "only" CHF26, so a modest 60% markup for those who benefit the most from the global central bank-driven multiple-expansion rally. In retrospect, it is surprising the markup is this low.


Hungry for more? Here is the full documentary clip from Deirdre Wang Morris:

May I recommend the cream of mushroom soup or the lobster bisque?

I hope the hot dogs are non-kosher... the hamburger contains mad-cow... and the caesar's salad has salmonella.

Is that ice berg lettuce? Perhaps the elite aren't so elite afterall.

There are a small percentage of the general population are outraged at all of this, but sadly most are not.  Until that changes we shall be ruled like peasants and slaughtered like livestock.

Mr. Soros, the house special today is our clam chowder.

If I was one of these guys, I would be cooking my own food.

Colonel Klink's picture

Therein lays the truth.  The price isn't to cover the food or purely a monetary ass raping.  They allow them to charge such outrageous prices so the food isn't poisoned!  Allow the plebes to make some coin and they'll sell out every time.

as disconnected from reality as the paper supply is to the price of gold.

somethings gonna give when those food prices become reality for the rest of us debt slaves.

A Ceasar salad for $55 with iceberg lettuce and not one fucking anchovie?


Money Boo Boo's picture

I'm confused, where's the roast baby thigh on the menu?

Colonel Klink's picture

That's on the dinner menu.  Along with rack of hooker, a blowtini, and infant blood transfusions.

I'd pay $50 for a decent Kosher corndog....

SamAdams's picture

I'd pay $10.25 for the 7.62 blank that missed the head and bounced off the sidewalk,

Only $.90 for the false claim of chrome vs black mirrors,

$3.25 for each Je Suis Charlie sign printed within hours of the shooting,

$85.25 for each ID left in the getaway car,

$150 for each picture of world leaders leading a unity march of security agents,

$1 trillion for a video of WT7 crashing in to its own footprint,

oh, and $50 for a decent Kosher corndog.

Paveway IV's picture

It works fine for me, forexskin. It brings up the Bing cached VT page that you wanted to link. His browser security settings probably didn't like something.

The sercet in Davos is those $43 hot dogs were used as dildos by pre-pubescent children.

...and they are sold out in 3....2...1...

BurningFuld's picture

That's not a fucking Ceaser salad. Who the fuck are those idiots.

NoDebt's picture

It's the internet, Fuld.  They just say shit and you're supposed to believe it.  Stop pointing out obvious errors.  You're just wrecking the experience for the rest of us.

General Decline's picture

"hot dogs were used as dildos by pre-pubescent children."

Seriously, tough... I wonder how many children get raped and snuffed at this thing this year? Moloch demands his sacrifices.

SamAdams's picture

JE SUIS CEASAR!!!!  now get me a salad...

Switzerland is outrageously expensive for foodstuffs and especially so at all the mountain resorts.

Switzerland is always at the top of The Economist's "Big Mac Index":

"The most expensive Big Mac, meanwhile, is in Switzerland and that was even before the Swiss franc shot up last week after the country’s central bank abandoned its currency peg against the euro."

Narrator: He was the guerilla terrorist for the food service industry. Apart from seasoning the lobster bisque, he farted on the meringue, sneezed on braised endive, and as for the cream of mushroom soup, well...

Tyler Durden: Tell 'em.

Narrator: ...you get the idea.

The Davos degenerate club are all going for the 20 minutes with a pre pubescent boy for $2k [the kids menu].

SickDollar's picture

wow even among themselves (the elite) they fleece each other$

Elite $43 hotdog: must be made from gourmet Caviar, compare the sheeple $2 hotdog filled with junk and trash

NoVa's picture

you are presuming that these guys actually pay for their own food.  

They don't.  That's why they have businesses!


General Decline's picture

That's correct. When your tribe controls the printing press, who cares how much stuff costs.

neidermeyer's picture

The $1.50 hot dog (or polish sausage) with soft drink from Costco are on my agenda for today ... not junk ,, 1/4 lb. + true footlong on a fresh bun.
