Serendipity 3 Creates The World’s Most Expensive Burger

New York’s Serendipity 3 restaurant has created the world’s most expensive burger according the Guinness Book of World Records.

The $295 burger, invented in honor of National Hamburger Month features a patty of Japanese Waygu beef infused with 10-herb white truffle butter and seasoned with Salish Alderwood smoked Pacific sea salt. It’s topped with cheddar cheese, hand-made and cave-aged for 18 months by famed cheesemaker James Montgomery of Somerset, England. There are also shaved black truffles, a fried quail egg, a blini, creme fraiche, Kaluga caviar and a white truffle-buttered Campagna roll. Lastly, a solid gold “Fleur de Lis” toothpick, encrusted with diamonds, designed by world-renowned jeweler Euphoria New York.

All profits from the pricey patties will go to the Bowery Mission, which serves homeless and hungry New Yorkers.

The burger joins the ranks of other seriously expensive fare at Serendipity, which includes a $1,000 ice cream sundae and a $69 hot dog.
