Last week we heard of the most expensive ice cream sold in Japan. This week a Philadelphia restaurant that opened on Friday is serving hamburgers with a hefty price tag of $700.
It is called their Gold Standard burger which is on the menu at Drury Beer Garden in Center City, Philadelphia.
The bougie burger is made of A5 Wagyu beef, caviar, truffle, lobster flambeed with Louis XIII cognac, gold leaf and Wexford aged Irish cheddar.
It comes with a side of fries that are drizzled with rare and potent 1500+ Manuka Honey, produced from the nectar of the mānuka tree that is native to New Zealand.
Apparently, the honey is expensive as well and can cost up to the not-so-sweet price of $816 online.
Luckily, DBG’s expensive entrée is also served with a 1-ounce side of Louis XIII cognac, which is aged a minimum of 40 years and produced in limited quantities by Remy Martin.
A 750 ml bottle goes for $4,100, according to Forbes.
“Burgers are one of the most loved food items around the world,” George Tsiouris, who co-owns the Center City restaurant with his sister, Vasiliki Tsiouris-Balis, said in a statement.
“We are excited to provide our guests some amazing, creative and tasty options with our new menu concept.”
Although it doesn’t cost anywhere near the world’s most expensive burger, which sells for $5,964, some Twitter users said they would not indulge in the pricey burger.
“No that’s rent money,” said @adaywithoutlove.
“I’d hold the burger and make a donation instead,” added @jenniferlogue. “With people struggling so much these days (especially with inflation) this is in really poor taste.”
DBG also sells a Waygu cheeseburger that goes for $85, and they're other burgers range from $19 to $23.
