Laying out $150 could buy you a weeks worth of groceries, close to seven trips to the movies or a stay in a Sydney hotel – or, it could get you a golden burger in Kuala Lumpur.
Dubbed by the Banyan Tree hotel as the ‘most exclusive burger’, the $152 meal has been officially launched by the Malaysian hotel throughout the month of October.
The towering meal features a truffle flavoured bun layered in 24K gold leaves, two house made double minced Wagyu beef patties, foie gras, veal bacon, eggs sunny side up, gherkins, cheddar cheese, red onions, tomato, butter lettuce, and paired with apple compote.
The burger, according to local media Coconuts, was inspired by a birthday mishap at the hotel whereby a man complained after having to spend six times more than what he had ordered simply because his friends decided to split the hefty bill equally. Haven’t we all been there?
The man, who ordered the hotel’s RM88 burger, decided to ride the wave of the spotlight his post created, by launching the super luxe (and pretty exxy) RM460 burger.
Served with two glasses of wine on the house, it’s a meal you’ll want to remember – especially with that price tag.
At a fraction of the price, it was revealed which McDonald’s burger is the most expensive in the world.
Comparative insurance company Hello Safe put together “2020 Big Mac World Price Index” – detailing which country you can buy the McDonald’s favourite for the cheapest as well as revealing the country where you have to shell out the most.
The British price comparison site – which aims to offer shoppers “transparency” to make the right decisions – identified Switzerland as the place fast-food fans are charged the most to buy a Big Mac.
Coming in at $9.74 – it is more than triple the cost of the cheapest place in the world to eat the double stacked burger, South Africa, where it costs $2.62.
Other countries who fare well on the cheaper end of the scale include Russia, Turkey and Ukraine.
