The world’s most expensive burger was sold in Dubai for $10,000 in the name of charity. It was auctioned to raise the money for the Pink Caravan’s Pink Bite breast cancer charity auction. This burger was known as ‘Seven Emirates Burgerstack’ created by chef Russell Impiazzi, culinary director of Galeries Lafayette Le Gourmet along with Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani, chairman, Department of Statistics and Community Development Sharjah.
Worth for $10,000…Wonder what’s inside this world’s most expensive burger?
It contained seven beef patties, aged cheddar cheese and veal bacon strips in a saffron brioche bun. The world’s most expensive burger was full with Harissa sauce and 7 spices. Moreover, it was served with a milkshake.
During the auction, many ambassadors tried to sell their dishes with the best price, but Sheikh Al Thani sold four of his signature burgers. Each burger was bought for (AED 36,700) $10,000.
“I have been an ambassador of Pink Caravan since the very beginning, and I am extremely honoured to be here today,” said Sheikh Al Thani told news agency WAM.
“Two years ago we broke the world record by selling one burger for $7,000, and this year we wanted to top that. Of course, all proceeds will go to breast cancer awareness and free detection at an earlier stage.
“I am so proud of the charitable spirit of the people here in the UAE. We may be celebrating 2017 as the ‘UAE Year of Giving’, but for the people of this nation every year is. It is the personal responsibility of every individual to participate in initiatives like the Pink Caravan, for it is one of the best ways to give back to the community.”
Pink Caravan Higher Organising Committee Chairwoman Reem Bin Karam said, “This was an incredible feat for not just the Pink Caravan and its supporters but for everyone who supports a good cause in the world.”
Moreover, this was not the first luxury burger to be sold in Dubai. Earlier the 24k “Burg Khalifa” burger was sold for $63 this year.
Again the “Burger Khalifa” was sold last year for $136.
Everyone is just in love with these giant burgers…
