Planning on having a nice, juicy burger this Memorial Day weekend? Well, you are in the right city. We may not have the most expensive hot dogs in the world, but it sure seems like we must have the most expensive burgers at this point. And while one of them is definitely, sadly, real, we have our doubts about the other...

So, let's start with the real one! Today on Today the folks at Serendipity 3 (no stranger to pricey foods) announced that they are now selling a $295 burger so fancy you need to order it 48 hours in advance. And it certainly has lots of costly ingredients to try and justify that price. Apparently the burger is 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."


And, of course, that's not all! The burger also comes with a "solid-gold, diamond-encrusted toothpick." On the plus side, they say the proceeds from the burger will go to the admirable Bowery Mission. Still...

More ludicrous than that burger? The fact that it may well not be the most expensive in town. Though we haven't been able to prove it actually exists (though the owners assure us it does, they just need a half-hour warning to prepare it), the new LIC burger truck 666 Burger claims that it is selling a perfectly named $666 "Douche Burger." And what does that entail? Glad you asked! That slab of meat reportedly "consists of a fucking burger filled and topped with rich people shit. Kobe beef patty (wrapped in gold leaf), foie gras, caviar, lobster, truffles, imported aged gruyere cheese (melted with champagne steam) kopi luwak bbq sauce and Himalayan rock salt. It may not taste good, but it will make you feel rich as fuck. Douche." Oh, and also? They wrap the whole thing up in three $100 bills, so, as one owner explains to us, "when you are done with it you'll have three greasy hundred dollar bills and have to decide what to do with them. That's why it is called the Douche Burger."
