666 Burger is a food truck that operates locally here in NYC and is swiftly becoming locally famous for making damn tasty no-frills burgers; the kind of round, hearty all-beef patty your Dad might make for a 4th of July BBQ.
But they may now become slightly more famous for creating the most expensive burger in the world: the $666 “Douche Burger.”
The Douche Burger was created as a response to the pretentious $295 Le Burger Extravagant currently on sale at equally sniffy-named Serendipity 3, also in NYC. The difference being, however, that 666 Burger is in on the joke of how ridiculous it is to have an expensive burger on the menu. Whereas Le Burger Extravagant (seriously, just typing the name is making me yawn) is touted as a work of art, the Douche Burger is touted as just plain ridiculous in its extravagance. It’s sort of the burger equivalent to wearing 11 gold chains.
Take a look at the Douche Burger:
A foie-stuffed, gold-leaf-wrapped Kobe patty is topped with caviar, lobster, truffles, Gruyere melted with Champagne steam, and BBQ sauce made using Kopi Luwak coffee.
Champagne steam! Lobster! Truffles! BBQ sauce made out of Southeast Asian tree mammals’ poop! And a bun with a pentagram on it!
And now take a look at the ingredients (and irritating language of the press release) of Le Burger Extravagant:
… a mix of Japanese Waygu beef infused with 10-herb white truffle butter, seasoned with Salish Alderwood smoked Pacific sea salt, topped with cheddar cheese — hand-formed by the famous cheesemaker James Montgomery in Somerset, England, and cave-aged for 18 months — shaved black truffles, a fried quail egg and served on a white truffle-buttered Campagna Roll, which is topped with a blini, creme fraiche, and Paramout Caviar’s exclusive Kaluga caviar — a beautiful golden caviar with a buttery, nutty taste and large pearls from the Huso Dauricus farm raised in Quzhou, China. The finishing touch to this incredible burger is a solid gold “Fleur de Lis” toothpick encrusted with diamonds and designed by world-renowned jeweler Euphoria New York.
Zzzzzzzz. Seriously. Which one would you rather have? “[The Douche Burger] may not taste good, but will make you feel rich as f*ck,” says 666 Burger. We have to admit: their charm beats whatever Serendipity 3 has to offer. For more, check out 666 Burger on Facebook.
