Boisdale, a central London restaurant, is offering what it claims is the world’s most expensive omelette, a £90 ($135) dish made from gulls’ eggs.

The eggs, which have beautiful mottled green-grey shell, are slightly bigger than a hen’s egg and need to be collected from gulls’ nests by 25 licensed traders.

Only about 40,000 gulls’ eggs are sold each year, with most collected from estates owned by wealthy families.

Ranald Macdonald, proprietor and founder of Boisdale said: “Gull’s eggs are very rare and one of the short-lived gems of the season.

They have a magnificent flavour, make an incredibly light and fluffy omelette and are ridiculously expensive.

I am delighted to be able to offer our customers this rare culinary experience for a very short period of time.”
