From $300,000 Cloned Hamburgers to Upscale Wasabi Sliders

 - Jul 31, 2013
Hamburgers are a North American staple, but they have nothing on these fancy burgers. This selection features a variety of luxury beef patties in addition to other upscale innovations to this meaty classic.

Pimping out a commonplace food item like a cheeseburger can be seen in other elements of pop culture. The obsession surrounding reality television is an example of making the lives of ordinary people more exciting and glamorous. There is also a parallel in the film industry where old movies are constantly being redone or having sequels. Gourmet burgers are also easily intertwined with other fad foods, such as the cronut. In many other cases desserts are created to mimic this barbecue star.
