A Dutch chef has created the ‘world’s most expensive burger’ and it sold for 5,000 euro, nearly ₹4.5 lakhs. The dish is called The Golden Boy. Robbert Jan de Veen of De Daltons diner in Voorthuizen, Netherlands has turned a regular burger into something wholesome that every burger lover would love to get their hands on.
According to the official website of the diner, what makes this burger interesting and pricey is the use of lavish ingredients like Beluga caviar, king crab, Spanish Paleta Iberico, white truffle, and English cheddar cheese. If we go by the website, it also has a barbeque sauce, which is made with Kopi Luwak, one of the costliest coffee beans in the world. Also, the bun is made with Dom Pérignon champagne dough and topped with a gold leaf.

Among the notable ingredients used in the burger, Beluga caviar is the most expensive type of caviar and its current price on the market ranges between $7,000 to $10,000 per 1 kg. Similarly, Wagyu beef comes from Japan and is the most prized beef in the world. High-grade wagyu can cost up to $200 per pound.
As per media reports, the burger was sold to Netherlands-based business conglomerate Remia International and it was then eaten by Rober Willemse, chairman of the Royal Dutch Food and Beverage Association. The amount collected from the sale was donated to an NGO by Veen.
In a statement, Veen has mentioned that the idea of making this burger happened because he was depressed and was feeling bad seeing the sufferings of the masses and the dismal situation of the restaurant industry.
Previously, a restaurant in Oregon, US had created the world’s most expensive burger at that time, which was priced at $5,000 (€4,200) and weighed 352.44 kg.
