Kanye West Orders Take-Out — From Wales

If Kanye West were to walk into the British Raj’s dining room and order dinner, the rapper might pay about $17.50. But because the restaurant is delivering — from Wales to New York — it’s going to cost a bit more. For a feast of onion bhajis, 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 previously had 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, 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 everything to make sure the food gets there safely.”

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 take for two evenings, the time Ahmed will be away, Mohammed said. SOURCE
