The grill is on, the beer is chilling and the cheese has aged! Summer is burger time! To celebrate our favorite food, we scoured the earth for the most expensive, odd, crazy burgers we could find!
DONUT BURGER (aka THE LUTHER BURGER)
Crave Real Burgers, CO
Bacon, egg, onion, cheddar served between two glazed donuts.
LE BURGER EXTRAVAGANT
Japanese Waygu beef burger slathered in 10-herb white truffle butter, smoked Pacific sea salt, and 18-month cheddar. Topped with black truffles and a quail egg, and served on a white truffle-buttered roll. Held together with a solid gold toothpick, and a little dollop of caviar.
STEM CELL BURGER
A Lab, London
Created from 20,000 strands of bovine muscle cells, this new type of meat could change they way we eat. It took three months to create and was tested in London. Reviews were mixed for the chewy burger, mixed with breadcrumbs and some red beet juice and saffron. It was fried in sunflower oil and butter, served with tomato slices.
Ramen Burger, NYC
High quality beef, asian spices, soy and lettuce served between a “bun” made of salty ramen noodles. Add an egg for a little extra indulgence!
MALLIE’S ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS BURGER
A monster. The 338 lb, record smashing burger reportedly loses 100 of grease when cooked. It is served with 30 lbs of bacon, 15 pounds of lettuce, 30 pounds of tomatoes and more than 30 pounds of cheese. Also, you need to order it a few days prior as it takes 22 hours to cook.
DB ORIGINAL TRUFFLE BURGER
DB Bistro, NYC
An infamous NYC standard by Daniel Boulud, it’s a patty of sirloin stuffed with short ribs, black truffles and foie gras. Served with fries and DB toothpick.
PEANUT BUTTER AND JEALOUSY BURGER
Slater’s 50/50, Rancho Cucamongo, CA
Peanut butter combines with strawberry jam and bacon, atop a juicy sirloin burger. No need for cheese on this one.
