An American diner-style London restaurant Honky Tonk has created the world's most expensive burger at £1,100 ($1,770) and tagged it as the Glamburger. The extravagant burger, a masterpiece by chef Chris Large is made of some of the most expensive ingredients from around the world and has earned its record as the world's most expensive burger from RecordSetter.
Glamburger comes with a patty made from a mix of 200g of Kobe Wagyu beef and 60g of New Zealand venison, which chef Large claims perfectly balances the fat content. It further has a rich centre of black truffle brie, which serves as a liquid pocket to the cooked meat, before it is seasoned with smoked Himalayan salt.
The buns also hold within them a Canadian lobster poached in Iranian saffron and maple syrup-coated streaky bacon, along with Beluga caviar and hickory smoked duck egg covered in gold leaf. The buns themselves are coated in gold leaf and seasoned with Japanese matcha - a version of powdered green tea, along with the usual, creamy mayonnaise.
Just in case the burger still isn't rich enough, the chef added a mango and champagne just to the lot and grated white truffle, which is the most expensive ingredient of them all.
As Chef Large relates, "Expensive ingredients...High quality.. Costs money." The bill for Glamburger, after tax levies comes up to £1,237 in the UK.
While most of us can only dream of having a peck of this extravagant burger, there is a chance for those who truly want to taste the Glamburger. Honky Tonk has partnered with the discount website, Groupon, and is offering to let one lucky-draw winner sample the most expensive burger for free.
"After sourcing the best possible ingredients to create this masterpiece, the winner will certainly have a dinner to remember," Large promised.
