The World's Most Expensive Burger Is Only $1,768!

Ha! Lowly peasant. Your burger is topped with Salish Alderwood sea salt and shaved black truffles? That sounds boring.

Sit down, expensive burgers of yore. The "Glamburger" is here to kick your privilege in the face. All fancy burgers have some form of black truffle and a Kobe Wagyu beef patty from Japan -- this one throws in lobster, beluga caviar, venison, a duck egg and an edible gold leaf. And it only costs $1,768!

That's right, kids. A layer of gold on your burger. To eat!

Chris Large, head chef at Honky Tonk in London, teamed up with Groupon to create this monstrosity in celebration of selling its five-millionth food and drink voucher in Britain. He told UPI that he plans to hold a contest to give away a free, 2,618-calorie Glamburger.

"After sourcing the best possible ingredients to create this masterpiece, the winner will certainly have a dinner to remember," Large said.

The Guinness Book of World Records lists New York's Le Burger Extravagant ($295) as the most expensive burger. A $500 burger in Beverly Hills unofficially topped that record in 2012 with its flashy ingredients, and the largest commercially available burger weighs 777 pounds and costs $5,000. But those don't hold a candle to the single-serving Glamburger, whose main ingredients are as follows:
