- World’s most expensive hamburger Serendity 3: 295 USD
The landmark NYC restaurant has caught the eyeballs for having slashed down the world’s most expensive hamburger this time. Although Serendipity 3 fetched a Guinness World Record Title for devising one of its kind, but the super exorbitant burger sounds quite a fair deal as several hundred calories and a generous cause rest beneath the toppings of cheese and other scrumptious ingredients of Japanese Waygu beef and 10-herb white truffle butter with seasoned Salish Alderwood smoked Pacific sea salt.
Serendipity 3 endows the veneering touch with a gold Fleur de Lis toothpick.
I am sure you are wondering what’s so unique about the finishing touch on this incredible burger.
Well, the toothpick will amazingly be overlaid by diamonds carved by the world famous jeweler Euphoria, based in New York. Too surprising, isn’t it?
After the crazy prices I have seen this seems to me so cheap!!!
