How much for the world's most expensive burger?

7 October 2014

Restaurants love getting things that aren't usually expensive and then tarting them up so they're wildly pricey. It's cheap PR and, in this instance, we're suckers for meat on bread.

We've already drooled over pizza burgers and the fabulous nine-patty burger on Bitterwallet, and now we're looking at some place in Chelsea called Honky Tonk who claim to have made the world's most expensive burger.

We've already seen the most expensive ready-meal at £314, but this burger dwarfs the price of that, coming in at a whopping and preposterous £1,100.

So what makes this burger so good then?

Well, it is embellished with gold leaf, lobster and caviar for a kick off, and has 220g of wagyu beef and 60g of venison in it too. In the middle of the burger, there's a black truffle Brie that creates a "liquid pocket" once cooked.

The whole thing is seasoned with Himalayan salt and the lobster is poached in Iranian saffron. There's also maple syrup bacon, hickory smoked duck egg and the aforementioned beluga caviar and gold leaf.

 

The bun isn't just some crusty cobbler from down the shops. It is seasoned with Japanese matcha, which is a sort of green tea powder and for a bit of wet, there's cream mayonnaise and a mango and champagne jus and grated white truffle.

It has over 2,000 calories and has the awful name of 'The Glamburger' and is a publicity stunt created in tandem with those gits at Groupon, who just so happen to be giving one of the burgers away for free. Sadly, you'll have to go to Chelsea and put up with all the Hooray Henry sorts and women in riding boots called Chlamydia.

    I love it when they say 'Iranian Safron', or 'Vinegar of Modena'. It all has to come from somewhere it naturally grows or lives. You're not going to get Olive Oil of Grimsby.
