Hold on tight to your wallet as First We Feast shows us the most expensive burgers from all over the United States.
The Fleurburger 5000
Where it came from: Fleur
No city does over-the-top quite like Las Vegas. Home to the The Fleurburger 5000 comes America’s, and the world’s, most expensive burger. The decadent Kobe beef burger comes loaded with foie gras and black truffles. And it’s encased in a truffle-infused brioche bun.
The Absolutely Ridiculous Burger
Where it came from: Mallie’s Sports Grill & Bar
Weighing in at 338.6 pounds; Michigan’s 540,000-calorie burger features 15 pounds of lettuce, 30 pounds of bacon, 30 pounds of tomatoes, and 36 pounds of cheese.
The 777 Burger
Where it came from: Burger Brasserie
The 777 Burger, also native to Las Vegas, is a surf-and-turf Kobe beef and Maine lobster combo. It’s topped with caramelized onions, imported Brie, crispy prosciutto, and 100-year aged balsamic vinegar.
The 666 Douche Burger
Where it came from: 666 Burger
Wrap a patty in six sheets of gold leaf and it immediately becomes a part of the haute-burger pantheon; even if it’s served out a food truck in New York City. 666 Burger‘s appropriately-named Douche Burger is “a fucking burger filled and topped with rich people shit.” What this expensive burgers creator means to say is that it is a gold-leaf–embellished; foie gras-stuffed Kobe patty topped with Gruyere melted with Champagne steam lobster, truffles, caviar, and Kopi Luwak coffee bean-infused BBQ sauce.
Le Burger Extravagant
Where it came from: Serendipity 3
For $295, you get a Wagyu beef patty infused with white truffle butter and topped with cave-aged cheddar, shaved black truffles, a fried quail egg, and caviar. If that isn’t already luxe enough, the finishing touch to one of the most expensive burgers is nothing less than a solid gold toothpick encrusted with diamonds.
The Indulgence Burger
Where it came from: Beer & Buns
The newest player in the luxe burger game is Beer & Bun’s kobe beef, foie gras, crispy pancetta, white truffle, and caviar burger.
De Royale Double Truffle Burger
Where it came from: DB Bistro Moderne
What makes this burger different is that the ground beef patty is stuffed to the brim. It contains red wine-braised short ribs, foie gras, root vegetables, and preserved black truffle. The fancied patty is topped with a double load of fresh black truffles. It sits on top of a homemade toasted parmesan, a poppy seed bun slathered in fresh horseradish and tomato confit (aka, fancy ketchup).
