The World’s Most Expensive Burger: $185.00

Cheese… Add $30.00

Last year, when I wrote about The Hard Rock Hotel, I spoke of my hotel ritual of ordering a Cheeseburger from Room Service before I unpacked. Most people were a little stunned when I said the bill came to $31.20. I was too. Now it seems that burger could have come off the ‘Dollar Menu’ compared to Burger King’s ultimate, “The Burger.”

This expensive, culinary masteriece is available only at a West London branch of the Burger King chain. The world’s most expensive hamburger is made with Wagyu beef (an exclusive, high quality beef known worldwide for its marbling characteristics) and decked with white truffles, onion tempura prepared in Cristal champagne, and Italy’s finest prosciutto. It’s served on a bun of Iranian saffron. All proceeds from the sandwich will benefit a local charity, Help A London Child.

It’s suggested you pre-order “The Burger” by phone. You might not want to stand in line for the time it takes to prepare – especially if you have to have  it “Your Way”.
