The Most Expensive Burger in the World
It's been a decade since Juicys Outlaw Grill in Oregon set the record for the world's most expensive burger with a 777-pound behemoth. Robbert Jan de Veen, the owner of Dutch diner De Daltons, thought he could do better — and with a sandwich that can be picked up with just two hands. The Golden Boy is the result. Its ingredient list reads like a who's who of rare foods from around the world, including Japanese A5 Wagyu brisket and chuck short ribs, white truffles, Beluga caviar, Paleta Iberico Bellota ham, Dom Perignon champagne in both the onion rings and saffron gold leaf bread, king crab, and BBQ sauce made using Kopi Luwak coffee and Macallan Single Malt Whisky. Described as having a complimentary but intense flavor profile, the first burger has already been sold, with the entire purchase price going to a local food bank.
