The 'World's Most Expensive Burger' Costs More Than £4,000

Meet the world's most expensive burger, which will set you back to the tune of €5,000 (£4,200).

This is no regular burger, this is an indulgent experience where every bite costs hundreds of pounds.

The creator of 'The Golden Boy' burger is Dutch chef Robbert Jan de Veen, known on Instagram as the King of Hamburgers.

He told Euro News: "Breaking a world record has been a childhood dream of mine and it feels amazing."

The world record attempt is under review by the Official World Record Association.

The current Guinness World Record is help by a $5,000 (£3,600) burger from Juicys Outlaw Grill in Oregon, USA, which weighed more than 350kg.

However, chef de Veen looks set to beat this.

Beluga caviar, king crab, Spanish Iberico ham and white truffle sit on top of a Wagyu beef patty.

If that isn't eclectic enough for you, the BBQ sauce is made with Kopi Luwak coffee that costs between $30 and $100 a cup, as well as Macallan single malt whiskey.

The bun is also made with a Dom Pérignon champagne bun, and topped with gold leaf.

Creator de Veen says: "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."

But de Veen has not only created this for bragging rights - it comes as restaurants are badly hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mr Veen told The National: "Restaurants were closed and there were no food competitions due to the pandemic.

"I was depressed. I was feeling bad seeing the sufferings of the masses and the dismal situation of the restaurant industry.

"Therefore, I decided to create the world's most expensive burger and donate the entire income to charity to do good."

The burger was eaten by Rober Willemse, chairman of the Royal Dutch Food and Beverage Association. So far he's the only person to have tried it.

Mr Veen said: "It's been a difficult year with Covid, but good times are ahead for the entire hospitality industry and this is a great start."

If you too fancy blowing £4,000 on a burger, de Veen said: "I am all set to go...I will prepare it as soon as I get the second potential buyer."
