First We Feast conducted a nation-wide search for the most expensive burgers and what on earth could justify their outrageous prices. Not surprisingly, the world’s most expensive burger is an American creation, fit for the high-rollers in its city of sin. It’s a cut above New York’s 666 Douche Burger, wrapped in six sheets of gold leaf, and basically drowns the 777 Burger of Burger Brasserie in its 100-year-old aged balsamic vinegar. So what does the world’s most expensive burger look like? THIS

THE FLEURBURGER 5000 is aptly named for its whopping $5,000 price tag. You can find this luxurious, decadent concoction of Chef, Hubert Keller, at his restaurant, Fleur, in Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay. His masterpiece consists of a “Wagyu beef and foie gras burger patty, topped with truffle sauce and shaved black truffles, served on a brioche truffle bun” (Sterling, Justine, Delish.com.) If the truffle party in your mouth gets to be a little too rich, there is a $2,500 bottle of Bordeaux served alongside your dish to “wash things down with.” At the end of the meal, patrons get to take home their Ichendorf glass (the Bordeaux is served in) and a certificate of authenticity as bragging rights.
Takeaway Point: If you are looking to blow all of your Vegas winnings in one sitting, be sure to head over to Fleur and instantly become the coolest person in the room.
