Top 10 Most Expensive Burgers In The World!
The burger grew out of the needs of a society that was changing quickly because of industrialization and the need of working people for quick meals they could find and eat on the way to the office. Even though there is debate about who invented the hamburger, it is not clear where it came from. But a burger is now thought of as the king of fast food, and almost everyone likes it.
Some places have turned the simple combination of bread, beef, and salad in a burger into a delicious culinary masterpiece. Many people all over the world would gladly pay any price to try some of this art. If you think the $15 burger you ate last night in that fancy New York bar was too expensive, take a look at the top 10 most expensive burgers in the world.
1. Million Rupiah Hamburger
People often think of the United States when they think of burgers, but this is just a stereotype because you can now get burgers everywhere, even in places like Indonesia. The Million Rupiah Hamburger was served at the Four Seasons Hotel in Jakarta with the idea that it would taste like a mix of East and West.
If you decide to try the burger, you'll get Japanese Kobe beef, Italian portobello mushrooms, wasabi mayonnaise, a handmade onion-wheat bun, French fries, French foie gras, and Asian pear. You shouldn't forget that a glass of wine costs $110 and should keep that in mind.
2. DB Royale Double Truffle Burger
The well-known chef Daniel Boulud came up with the idea for the DB Royale Double Truffle Burger in 2007. It was made at the DB Bistro Moderne in New York City. Root vegetables, foie gras, ribs cooked in red wine, and fresh black truffles are all part of this dish.
You'll also get parmesan cheese, poppy seeds, and ketchup, which is a unique mix of horseradish and tomato sauce. The price is $120 for such a great variety of flavours.
3. The Tri-Beef Burger
The first Tri-Beef Burger was made at the Old Homestead Steakhouse in Boca Raton, Florida, in 2006. Its name comes from the fact that it is a unique mix of three different kinds of beef: Argentine beef, Japanese Wagyu, and American Prime.
The ketchup that comes with it is interesting because it has champagne and truffles, among other things. You will also get French fries, a good drink, and a bill for $125.
4. The X Burger
Chef Ciaran Hickey came up with the X Burger, but no one knows where the name comes from. It has Australian Wagyu steak, foie gras, black truffles, and brioche bread as its main ingredients. The lobster tail, grilled red onion, tomato, wild pine mushrooms, and fresh asparagus are on top of the whole dish.
Aside from that, the burger would be missing something if it didn't come with an amazing variety of toppings like truffle aioli, dark red truffle sauce, and brunoise tomato salsa. The price of a single X Burger is a whopping $160.
5. The Richard Nouveau Burger
The Richard Nouveau Burger is named after the made-up author of PocketChange, an online newspaper about the most expensive things in New York. In 2008, the first burger was made at the Wall Street Burger Shoppe. On a brioche bun are served aged Gruyere cheese, wild mushrooms, black truffles, and seared foie gras. The gold leaf flakes are the cherry on top. The burger costs a crazy $175, which is a lot of money.
6. The Burger
The Burger was made by Burger King to be the most expensive burger in the world. It lived up to its name and could only be found at the restaurant in West London. The main ingredient was Wagyu beef. White truffles, the best Pata Negra prosciutto from Spain, and onion tempura cooked with Cristal champagne were also used. All of them had saffron and truffle buns from Iran on top. The Burger costs $186, but it didn't win the battle to be the best burger.
7. Indulgence Burger
Beer & Buns at the St. Giles Court Hotel in Midtown, New York, makes the Indulgence Burger. It has ingredients that you can't get at a regular market or farm. The main thing in The Indulgence Burger is Kobe beef. Caviar, white truffles, pancetta, and foie gras are added to make it a gourmet trip. For this item, a price tag of $250 is crazy.
8. Le Burger Extravagant
Serendipity 3 in New York is known for its extravagant dishes, like the world's most expensive hotdog and sundae, and Le Burger Extravagant is their newest creation. Le Burger Extravagant is made with Japanese Wagyu beef, white truffle butter, 18-month-aged cheddar cheese, shaved black truffles, a fried quail egg, Kaluga caviar, crème franchise, and smoked marine salt. The price of this tasty burger is about $295.
9. The Douche Burger
The Douche Burger is an attempt by New York's 666 Burger to make fun of the idea of the “most expensive burger” by covering the burger's parts in six layers of gold leaf and adding three $100 bills. Some of the most expensive ingredients in the world are Kobe beef patties, lobster, truffles, aged Gruyere cheese melted with champagne steam, Kopy Luwak coffee bean barbeque sauce, and Himalayan rock salt. At $666, the price is way too high.
10. The Absolutely Ridiculous Burger
Mallies Sports Grill & Bar in Michigan, USA, came up with the Absolutely Ridiculous Burger as a joke about the same idea. It weighs 338.6 pounds and is made up of 30 pounds of bacon, 30 pounds of tomatoes, 36 pounds of expensive cheese, and 15 pounds of lettuce. It can take up to 22 hours to make the huge burger. The crazy price of this huge burger is $1,999, which is a lot.
