World's 10 most expensive burgers revealed
London, Oct 6 (ANI): The 10 most expensive burgers in the world come with an astronomical price tag to match.
Eight of the patties can be found in upmarket restaurants in the US, while a ninth is on offer in London and a tenth in Indonesia. One of them even comes with a diamond-encrusted solid gold toothpick.
However - with the cheapest on sale for 100 pounds and the most expensive being offered for 5,000 dollars - it's debatable whether your average burger-loving diner will ever be wealthy enough to sample the delights of these dishes.
The most expensive on the list is the FleurBurger 5000, at Fleur de Lys in Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada, which costs a whopping 5,000 dollars, the Daily Mail reported.
Containing foie gras and a special truffle sauce, it is served on a brioche truffle bun with black truffles on the side and comes with a bottle of Chateau Petrus 1990, poured in Ichendorf Brunello stemware.
And the 777-dollar Kobe Beef and Maine Lobster Burger from Le Burger Brasserie in Paris Las Vegas, Nevada, consists of Kobe beef and fresh Maine lobster, caramelised onions, imported brie cheese, prosciutto, 100-year aged balsamic vinegar. It is served with a bottle of Rose Dom Perignon champagne.
It's class all the way for the '666' burger in New York. With a price tag of 666 dollars, the foie gras-stuffed Kobe patty is topped with gruyere cheese that has been melted with champagne steam, lobster, truffles, caviar, and a BBQ sauce made with Kopi Luwak coffee beans.
Some might say the 499-dollar Absolutely Ridiculous Burger, from Mallie's Sports Bar and Grill in Southgate, Michigan, is precisely that.
Not only is it one of the most expensive, the 185.6lb burger also holds the Guinness World Record holder for being the world's largest.
If you're wary of parting with 295 dollars for the Serendipity Burger from New York's Serendipity 3 restaurant, fret not - the meal even comes with its very own diamond-encrusted solid gold toothpick.
The patty of Japanese Waygu beef is infused with ten herb white truffle butter, seasoned with Salish Alderwood smoked Pacific sea salt, topped with cheddar cheese hand-formed by James Montgomery in Somerset, England, and 18-month 'cave-aged' shaved black truffles.
A fried quail egg, a white truffle-buttered Campagna Roll - itself, topped with a blini, creme fraiche, and Paramout Caviar's exclusive Kaluga caviar - finishes the dish.
London's offering to this list is the 200-dollar meal from One Burger King restaurant. Wagyu beef, white truffles, Pata Negra ham slices, Cristal onion straws is joined with Modena balsamic vinegar, lambs lettuce, pink Himalayan rock salt, organic white wine and shallot infused mayonnaise in an Iranian saffron and white truffle dusted bun.
The 175-dollar Richard Nouveau Burger, at the Wall Street Burger Shoppe in New York, is topped with real gold flakes, 25 grams of black truffles, a seared slab of foie gras and aged Gruyere.
The 120-dollar DB Royale Double Truffle Burger, on sale at New York's B Bistro and the Daniel Boulud Brasserie in Las Vegas, is stuffed with red wine-braised short ribs - off the bone - foie gras, a mix of root vegetables and preserved black truffle.
Indonesia's Million Rupiah Hamburger, served at the Four Seasons Hotel in Jakarta, earns its place in the top ten with the 108-dollar patty topped with foie gras, portobello mushrooms and Korean pears.
At a mere 100 dollars, McGuire's Grand Burger, from McGuire's Irish Pub in Pensacola, Florida, is the least expensive patty on the list.
It boasts a filet mignon and is served with Moet and Chandon white star champagne. (ANI)
