Satanic 666 Burger Is The World's Most Expensive
Because what good is Satan if you can't chain him under a grill in the back of a truck and use his heat to cook some burgers, the 666 Burger foodtruck in New York is offering a $666 'Douche Burger', beating the previous record holder for world's most expensive burger by over $350 (previous record was $295). That...I'd have to sell my soul to afford that. BOOM -- satanic tie-in.
Thrillist describes the Douche Burger as "a $666 edible fiscal disaster that piles caviar, lobster & truffles on top of a foie-stuffed, gold-leaf-wrapped Kobe patty, smothers it with Gruyere melted with Champagne steam, and finishes it off with BBQ sauce made using Kopi Luwak coffee that's passed through the digestive tract of the Asian Palm Civet."
First of all, there's no such thing as Kobe beef in the United States. Secondly, that doesn't even sound good. You know what it sounds like? "A stomach ache and then uncontrollable, explosive diarrhea nowhere near a bathroom?" *fist-bump* We've all been there.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots, none of which are of the actual burger although they insist it's real and a social commentary on the excessive nature of "gourmet" chefs...or something.
Thanks to Kyle, natas (I see what you did there!) and Atlas, who like their burgers the same way they like their fried fish plate: served with a side of hush puppies.
