Upsize your burger for $2,250

SINGAPORE - It is embellished with gold leaf, lobster and caviar.

It also has wagyu beef and venison, along with other expensive delicacies.

A London restaurant has claimed that it has created the world's most expensive burger, the Daily Telegraph reported. Its price: A whopping £1,100 (S$2,250).

The head chef at Honky Tonk restaurant in Chelsea, the affluent west London neighbourhood, took three weeks to develop this pricey dish, the report said.

The burger has been verified by Record Setters as the highest priced across the world.

Around 220g of Kobe wagyu beef is minced with 60g of New Zealand venison to "balance the fat content".

At the centre of the burger is a black truffle Brie that creates a "liquid pocket" once cooked.

The patty is seasoned with Himalayan salt served with a Canadian lobster poached in Iranian saffron.

Gold leaf

On top, there is bacon coated with maple syrup, beluga caviar and a hickory smoked duck egg covered in gold leaf.

To finish, the bun is seasoned with Japanese matcha - a type of powdered green tea - and cream mayonnaise, and is coated in gold leaf.

Finally, it is garnished with a mango and champagne jus and grated white truffle.

The burger contains 2,618 calories - more than the recommended daily intake for an adult man.

The "Glamburger", as it has been christened by American diner-style restaurant Honky Tonk, was created as a publicity stunt in partnership with discounts website Groupon, which is giving away one burger free.
