Dutch diner De Daltons‘ The Golden Boy burger is now the most expensive hamburger in the world with a whopping price tag of €5,000 EUR (approx. $5,964 USD). The previous record-holder was a 777-pound burger made by a restaurant in Oregon, “that’s definitely not for one person,” said restaurant owner Robbert Jan de Veen. “So I thought: I can do better than that.” The first Golden Boy burger has been sold, with all proceeds going to a local food bank.
The Golden Boy burger is presented on a platter of whiskey-infused smoke and loaded with premium ingredients including A5 Wagyu beef, king crab, beluga caviar, vintage Iberico Jamon, smoked duck egg mayo, white truffle, Kopi Luwak coffee BBQ sauce, pickled tiger tomato in Japanese matcha tea, and Dom Perignon infused gold-coated buns. “The ingredients complement each other very well and the flavors are intense. Even though this burger is extremely costly, you should still use your hands because that’s the only way to eat a burger. Since the bun is covered in gold leaf, your fingers will be golden by the time you finish,” said Robert.
To enjoy this burger at De Daltons, guests must book 2 weeks in advance and submit a deposit of €750 EUR (approx. $855 USD).
