A Two Hundred Dollar Burger.. from Burger King?

The Burger - from Burger King

Man… I thought that the BK’s prices were out of whack but this is borderline retarded.

I was perusing the web yesterday when my attention was instantly seized by the words “Burger King Launches Worlds Most Expensive Hamburger.” Apparently, a Burger King in London has developed a burger that sells for $200. What does $200 buy you in a burger? I’ll tell you… or rather the fine folks at Fox News will:

The fine ingredients of what is called simply ‘The Burger’ include Wagyu beef, white truffles, Pata Negra ham slices, Cristal onion straws, Modena balsamic vinegar, lambs lettuce, pink Himalayan rock salt, organic white wine and shallot infused mayonnaise in an Iranian saffron and white truffle dusted bun.

I was blown away… my thoughts are conflicted. On one hand, I am thinking to myself:

What kind of rich a__hole can afford to drop $200 on a burger of all things…. you could feed 4 families in Africa on that for 4 months

Then, on the other hand I was thinking:

How in the heck can I round up a flight to London and $200… I have to try one

I hope that comes with an onion ring and a diet coke as well.

I was really relieved at lower down in the article to see that the proceeds are going to a “Help a London Child” charity. Got to assuage that “foodie guilt” somehow. My favorite part of the whole story is where a London celebrity chef comments on the fact that he looks great…. but why is it coming from Burger King?

The $200 burger from BK “trumps” the previous record holder for most expensive burger the “DB Double Truffle Burger” from Chef Daniel Boulud at $130

Perusing the ingredients list again… where’s the foie gras?
