Kanye West Orders Food For Delivery From The U.K.

Posted By on March 5, 2007

When Kanye West wants something, its no problem to get it.

The rapper recently requested a dinner from British Raj in the U.K. be delivered to him in New York. The meal would normally coast $17.50 if he walked to the restaurant while in the city, but being that it’s being delivered from Wales to New York, the price tag is a lot more.

According to the Associated Press, Kanye ordered a dinner that includes onion bhajees, chapati breads, biryanis, pappadums, a specially prepared fish dish and vegetables on the side, which will coast him a whopping $3,900, plus travel and accommodation for the restaurant's head chef.

The meal was one he enjoyed while in Cardiff, Wales for an after-party after a Snoop Dogg concert, and is obviously craving another.

The restaurant usually doesn't deliver outside a 3-mile radius of the restaurant, but for a celeb like Kanye West, it seems like they will make an exception.

"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."

According to the AP, 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 (March 6).

From London's airport, the chef will hop on a flight to New York, monitoring the temperature all the way, until it is served during a meeting Wednesday (March 7).
