When I first heard of this I though my mate was talking out of his ass, but he was so insistent that I decided to Google it as soon as I got home. I couldn’t believe it, he wasn’t bullshitting at all. There are some Poms out there who are willing to fork over $200 for a bloody Burger King burger.
OK, so some of the ingredients are more expensive than the crap they put in a normal burger. Like the expensively priced Japanese-style Wagyu, that they still flame-grill! Then they garnish it with Italian truffles which I’ve heard is some pretty good stuff, and has actually become even more popular because of the Hit Movie Ratatouille. If that isn’t enough they even stick in a slice of Spanish cured ham with a dash of aged balsamic vinegar and then garnish it with some Champagne onions. Of course this concoction isn’t good enough for your old sesame seed bun so they have to stick it in a saffron and truffle dusted bun just for good measure.
Now while there are some diners who consider it to be simply ‘orgasmic’ others such as myself think it is too bloody decadent. And I would hate to think how many starving people could be fed with the cost of just one of these special Burger King Burgers. And I bet you that some wanker will even try to get it up-sized!
