The $200 Burger

Hot & Cool Trends from CultureWaves™

By Cari Martens

Making a Power Play all the way, Burger King has kicked the burger up several notches. If you want to spend the money on this, you will certainly be able to tell people you’ve done something they haven’t done – eaten a $200 hamburger at Burger King. What’s more, the proceeds will go to the Help a London Child charity, so you if you can afford to be generous, go ahead and indulge!

According to Luxist, Burger King is calling it simply “The Burger.” It “features Wagyu beef, white truffles, Pata Negra ham slices, Cristal onion straws, Modena balsamic vinegar, lambs lettuce, pink Himalayan rock salt, organic white wine, and shallot-infused mayonnaise all served up on an Iranian saffron and white truffle dusted bun.” It will only be on sale in London (for £95) once a week, for who knows how long.

It also looks delish – anyone care to try it out and let us know?
