You must be wondering how much you have to pay for this gold burger. Well, it cost almost 57 dollars to the restaurant to prepare it. So it won’t be as cheap as the regular burger.
And if you have enough money to give this 24 karat gold burger a try, then wait for half an hour for your order.
What About The Taste?
Since it’s first time we have seen a burger bathed in gold, it’s obvious to wonder about the taste.
Well, it doesn’t taste like gold. The decoration is just for a luxury experience for the wealthy foodies who can afford it. However, it’s messy as the gold thin layer sticks to the lip and finger.
So, if you are ready for a messier lunch then try this gold burger.
Cost Will Make You Go Nuts
As we told above it costs 57 dollars to the Toro McCoy, it would be more expensive for the foodies. This luxurious burger will be available at the cost of $59.
On the other hand, a regular burger costs you only $11. The price has to be high as the process of preparing gold burger is very delicate because the gold foil gets damaged easily.
So, the price is worth paying. In rupees, one 24-karat gold burger will cost you ₹ 4330. That’s too much!!!!
Still if this new burger edition has excited you and you want to taste it then come to Columbia.
However, this is not the most expensive burger of the world. New York’s restaurant has the record of making world’s expensive burger that costs $295.
