Leave it to a French guy to create the world’s most expensive burger.
Keller’s burger includes Kobe beef stuffed with luxurious black truffles and foie gras. It’s garnished with truffle sauce and packed between a brioche truffle bun. The truffles are from southwest France and are supposedly worth $1,500 a pound.
When it comes down to pricing, the burger’s actually only $70 on its own, but it comes served with a 1995 bottle of Chateau Petrus, a wine that according to Keller is worth $5,300 in itself. So far, he’s sold 27 of the Fleurburger 5000 since its six-year tenure on the menu.
In 2011, Keller called it “absolutely the ultimate experience when it comes to a burger.” While we have little doubt it’s probably a fabulous experience eating this luxurious burger, we don’t know if we’d ever drop $5k on it. Would you?
