The World’s Most Expensive Hamburger
New York City restaurant Serendipity 3 has set the Guinness World Records of the world’s most expensive hamburger on 22 May 2012.
Called ‘Le Burger Extravagant’, the record-breaking burger costs US$295—and is made from “a mix of Japanese Wagyu beef infused with 10-herb white truffle butter, seasoned with Salish Alderwood smoked Pacific sea salt,” topped with cheddar cheese by famous England cheesemaker James Motgomery, black truffles and a fried quail egg; and “served on a gold-dusted campagna roll spread with white truffle butter”; and topped with blini, crème fraiche and Kaluga caviar—according to Guinness World Records.
The burger also comes with a solid gold “Fleur de Lis” toothpick encrusted with diamonds and designed by world-renowned jeweller Euphoria New York, PR Newswire wrote.
The burger can be pre-ordered with a 48-hour notice; profits would be donated to the non-profit organization, The Bowery Mission, that feeds and assists homeless in New York.
