In honor of the holiday that is National Burger Month, I’ve devoted every Friday of the month to the world’s love for the juicy, dripping beast that is The Burger. And let me tell you: it’s been a wild ride. From NYC’s weirdest burgers, best mini burgers, biggest burgers, and finest three-day-weekend burgers – we can now say farewell to National Burger Month with crème de la crème: The Most Expensive Burger. Meet Le Burger Extravagant from Serendipity 3 in NYC.
At $295, this is the world’s most expensive burger. The legendary dessert spot known for the world’s most expensive sundae and priciest hot dog extends the spotlight to this extravagant dish that has its own write-up in the Guinness Book of World Records, requires a 48-hour advanced reservation, and comes with a take-home diamond-gold toothpick for the lucky customer.
Why the price tag? It’s loaded with Japanese Waygu beef, 10-herb white-truffle butter, 18-month-cave-aged cheddar cheese, shaved black truffles, and fried quail eggs – all on a white truffle-buttered Campagna Roll topped with caviar. With a solid gold-and-diamonds-encrusted toothpick. I spend money just writing about it.
