The world’s most expensive burger has gone on sale in a Tokyo restaurant with a £700 price tag.
Chef Patrick Shimada, who works at the Oak Door steakhouse in Tokyo’s Roppongi district, is the man behind the creation – which will be on the menu until June.
The Golden Giant Burger is made up of a 1kg patty, Wagyu beef slices, foie gras (a luxury paste made from duck of goose liver), shaved truffle, lettuce, cheddar cheese, tomatoes and onions.
The huge bun, which is six inches wide and 10 tall, is dusted with gold.
It has been created to celebrate the crowning of the new Japanese emperor, Crown Prince Naruhito.
The website states: “In celebration of the new Imperial era Reiwa and the long Golden Week, The Oak Door steakhouse will serve a special edition of their signature burger that come with two sizes.
“Let these indulgent burgers be the perfect choice for celebration!”
Writing on the hotel’s website, Patrick says: “As a fourth-generation Japanese, I am honored to witness this exciting time of change in Imperial era while working in Japan.
“While I was thinking how I could contribute to this once-in-a-life-time opportunity, I came up with this idea of Golden Giant Burger.
“In celebration of this special occasion in Japan, we consider using gold as a traditional ingredient to present this burger for the enjoyment of our dearest guests.”
Anyone who fancies splashing out to try the burger will need to order at least three days in advance.
