The World’s Most Expensive Burger


Last week, New York restaurant Serendipity3 set a Guinness World Record for the priciest burger with this gourmet $295 NOMfest, described by PRNewswire as:

…a mix of Japanese Wagyu beef infused with 10-herb white truffle butter, seasoned with Salish Alderwood smoked Pacific sea salt, topped with cheddar cheese — hand-formed by the famous cheesemaker James Montgomery in Somerset, England, and cave-aged for 18 months — shaved black truffles, a fried quail egg and served on a white truffle-buttered Campagna Roll, which is topped with a blini, creme fraiche, and Paramout Caviar’s exclusive Kaluga caviar — a beautiful golden caviar with a buttery, nutty taste and large pearls from the Huso Dauricus farm raised in Quzhou, China. The finishing touch to this incredible burger is a solid gold “Fleur de Lis” toothpick encrusted with diamonds and designed by world-renowned jeweler.’

48 hour notice is required when ordering the burger, profits from which are donated to the Bowery Mission a NY charity that feeds homeless people.
