Le Burger Extravagant has a Price Tag That Makes People Run for Their Money

Just the name for the world's most expensive burger, Le Burger Extravagant, makes it sound like it's made of money.

The lavish New York City restaurant Serendipity 3 has just set the Guinness World Record for creating the most expensive burger ever. It's priced at a whopping $295, and to make things even more exclusive, customers must pre-order 48 hours in advance.

For that price,one may think Le Burger Extravagant comes with a solid-gold toy similar to what you get in McDonald's Happy Meals, but unfortunately not. This cash cow burger is made with Japanese Wagyu beef that's crafted with white truffle and buttery goodness. It's slathered with hand-formed cheese and finished off with a fried quail egg. Instead of ketchup or mustard, the dish comes with caviar, blini and creme fraiche. All of this opulence if served on a bun embellished with gold flakes.
