This Is Why The Aliens Won't Visit: A $2,300 Gold-Covered Hamburger

June 5, 2017


According to the Guinness Book Of World Records, this is the world's most expensive hamburger (which is technically a cheeseburger), the creation of Nederland chef Diego Buik. What the hell does your $2,300 get you? Hopefully not a bad case of diarrhea or I'd demand my money back and free fries and a shake.

the ingredients include Japanese dry-aged Wagyu beef, Oosterschelde lobster (infused with Dutch Hermit gin), Foie gras, white truffle, Remeker cheese, Japanese fruit tomatoes and caviar on a brioche bun made with saffron and covered in gold leaf

Whatever. Besides, this isn't actually the world's most expensive hamburger. I happen to be selling the most expensive hamburger, and it costs $2,000,000. "That's just a McDonalds cheeseburger." Yeah but it's special. "What makes it so special?" I found it in the back of the fridge when I moved in. Now do you want it or not, because I have a rich prince on the phone and I'm pretty sure he wants to buy it or pay me to do some weird sexual thing.

Thanks to vishal, who agrees, alternatively, you could buy a $6 burger every day for a year and pay the same price.

    Sinon, le couteau qui maintient le Burger est un "deejo", le plus léger, le plus épuré et le plus personnalisable au monde!!! En plus, il est français et pas très cher pour cette qualité ;)
    Ça c'est une vraie news...

    Gold aside, that burger looks like it tastes terrible.

    Gold is completely inert right? So you just poop it out. I bet those turds would look pretty epic!

  • GeneralDisorder

    I don't think gold is digestible. So you would most likely just crap it out. Although the gold flakes might be sharp enough to get embedded into your gut. This isn't very likely. But... not impossible.

    Like diarrhea with gold in it? Yeah that would be awesome too! Would make for a FB worthy pic.

  • Meh

    Why is it even a record? Throw more gold on it and sell it for 5000? Record broken.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Just pay some big name chef $10 per burger to spit on it and call it his. Skip the gold. Charge $5k.
