Worth its weight in gold?

Time Out says

Renowned restaurant Shanghai Min has just debuted its new concept, Shanghai Min 1987, in Central. Exclusive to this location, the restaurant is showcasing a signature steamed original recipe chicken sprinkled with minced ginger fries and garlic ($298).
 
What's most interesting about this menu item isn't the ingredients, price or taste, but rather this recipe – or, at least, the aquisition of it. The chicken has previously been featured on the CCTV programme A Taste of China - Family Dish and became Shanghai Min 1987's trophy dish after its owners bought the classic Hakka recipe from the originating restaurant for a staggering $2.1 million! Talk about a million dollar baby – or chicken.
