Here is a $1,700 Burger That Comes Covered in Gold

Sometimes you just want to eat a whole bunch of precious metals. Unfortunately, most restaurant menus are suspiciously devoid of menu items containing diamonds, gold or even platinum. They just want to hog all the treasure for themselves! One London eatery, however, is sharing in the wealth by introducing a burger that is literally covered in sweet, sweet gold.

Honky Tonk, an American-themed diner in London, just rolled out their Glamburger. Just how glam is it? Well, in addition to the buns being dipped in gold leaf, the whole thing is also topped with a gold-covered duck egg. Don't worry. This gold is fully edible (so they say.) The patty itself is comprised of glamorous Kobe Wagyu beef and venison. Two animals meeting on the afterlife dinner plate isn't quite enough, however. There's also Iranian saffron-poached lobster and candied bacon in the mix. That's four! It's like a tasty zoo.

However, you'll have to shell out a lot of inedible gold to get your maw around this edible gold. The burger costs $1,700, but one lucky patron will get it for free thanks to a Groupon contest.
