If you’re a burger lover who is a frequent fixture at your local burger leleh stall, then this may be too upscale for your liking.
At Honky Tonk, an American diner-style restaurant in London, England, patrons can order a burger like nothing theyâ€™ve ever seen â€” or paid for â€” before: the Â£1,100 (RM5772.76) “Glamburger”.
The Glamburgerâ€™s patty is made with Kobe Wagyu beef and New Zealand venison, stuffed with black truffle brie, and seasoned with smoked Himalayan salt.
The burger is topped with Iranian-saffron-poached Canadian lobster, maple syrup-coated streaky bacon, Beluga caviar and hickory smoked duck egg covered in edible gold leaf.
And because you can never have too much gold leaf on your burger, the bun is also coated in gold leaf â€” and seasoned with Japanese matcha and cream mayonnaise.
Chef Chris Large tops off his culinary creation, which took three weeks to develop, with a mango and champagne jus (a kind of thin glaze) and grated white truffle.
“After sourcing the best possible ingredients to create this masterpiece, the winner will certainly have a dinner to remember,” Large says in a press release.
Not only will it empty your wallet, the Glamburger will expand your waistline. The decadent dinner will set you back an impressive 2,618 calories.
The Glamburger was created in collaboration with Groupon to celebrate the sale of the coupon siteâ€™s 5 millionth voucher in the U.K. One Groupon user will win the opportunity to travel to Honky Tonk and try the Glamburger for free.
Record Setter verified the Glamburger as the worldâ€™s most expensive burger â€” although Guinness World Records begs to differ. Oregon-based Juicys Foods created a monstrous 352.44-kilogram burger that costs $5000,or 16,268 big ones in Malaysian Ringgit. And yes, itâ€™s available commercially, in case you’re wondering.MYNEWSHUB/Text: Sara Khalid
