World's most expensive burger

New record set for world’s most expensive burger

Dining

Where else but in the capital of over-the-topness would you expect to find a $5,000 burger?

Celebrated chef Hubert Keller has created the world’s most expensive burger for his Fleur de Lys restaurant at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

But what do you get for a $5,000 burger? (That’s excluding tax and tip, mind you.)

The FleurBurger 5000 is made with Kobe beef, topped with a slab of foie gras, truffle sauce and black truffle shavings, all served on a brioche truffle bun.

The burger patty is never frozen or grilled prior to your order.

Oh, and you also get a bottle of Chateau Petrus 1995 from Bordeaux — which retails at around $5,300 a bottle —  thrown in with your FleurBurger 5000. The red wine comes served in Inchendorf Brunello stemware imported from Italy that will be mailed to your home with a certificate.

And if you’re dining with a companion, he or she will receive a free burger (although we’re guessing the freebie won’t be of the $5000-kind).

The previous record for world’s most expensive burger was held by a £95 burger from a Burger King outlet in West London, known quite simply as “The Burger”.

    Good to see a developer having the confidence to compete with whatever is originating their way.

    the only reason its so expensive is because the wine

    so if the wine retails at $5300 and the entire meal is only $5000 then technically isn’t the burger free? it’s like they are paying you $300 to eat it, must be a typo somewhere or it just wouldn’t make sense.

    Disgusting. I wouldn’t eat this abomination if someone paid me to.

    basically you are buying the Chateau Petrus with a burger for $5000.  The theory behind this is more people with money would buy the burger than Chateau Petrus in Vegas! It’s a marketing technique! 

  • Sllcoe

    that is just dumb.  I don’t care how good it is, if you spend $5000 it would be impossible to enjoy it, because you would know what a waste of money it was.

    These people need to be parachuted into the Amazon with a rusty knife and a spool of dental floss. If and when they survive their journey back to civilization, the need to join the Peace Corp and dig latrines on Borneo.

    Seeing as how Kobe Beef can not be sold in the US, this is false advertisement.
