Setting customers back a mouthwatering $62 (HKD480), the culinary creation may
be more expensive than those in Geneva, which topped the annual Club Sandwich
Index at an average of $30.45, but it includes some of the most expensive
ingredients from across the world.

Nestling between the crustless, lightly toasted three slices of bread, hungry
travellers will find Beluga Caviar, A5 Wagyu beef, Balik salmon, sliced black
pork bacon, Iberico ham, Belgian figs, sliced Roma tomato, Romaine lettuce,
cucumber, French chicken, Italian organic egg, mayonnaise, mesclun salad and
green asparagus.

Peter Lee, Executive Sous Chef atHullettHouse, said,"For customers to
experience how deluxe a club sandwich can be, we included premium
ingredients,such as Beluga caviar, which is one of the most expensive
caviarsin the world, A5Wagyubeef and Baliksalmon, which costs around $167
(HKD1300) per kilo."

Alison Couper on behalf of added, "The Club Sandwich frequently
appears on hotel menus across the globe, but the creation from Hullett House
shows how you can transform a staple into a work of art with a few luxurious
ingredients! We started the Club Sandwich Index in 2011 as a perfect spending
barometer, helping tourists factor into their travel plans the everyday cost
of simple items such as food and drink. The beauty of the CSI is that we are
able to offer travellers a simple price comparison to show how far their money
may stretch in each country."

The luxury Club Sandwich is available at TheParlouratHullett House for $62
(HKD480) from15June until 31 August, 2013.

The Club Sandwich Index uses the classic chicken, bacon, egg,
lettuce and mayonnaise sandwich as a barometer of affordability, offering
holidaymakers an indication of the cost of living associated with their
destination of choice. The CSI average price is calculated from the real
prices paid by guests for a Club Sandwich in 30 hotels in the capital or an
important tourist city of each country surveyed, across five, four and three
star categories. In total, 840 hotels globally were canvassed.
