I Am Not A Fan Of Fast Food Burgers,

although last week I did enjoy a couple of real steak burgers, 

that I had for a evening meal, but I must admit I would like to try this one, The Golden Boy burger, was created by Robbert Jan de Veen, owner of Dutch restaurant De Daltons, who came up with the idea while sitting in his restaurant pretending to get some work done, “Restaurants were closed and there were no food competitions due to the pandemic. Though our food takeaway service was on, I was depressed. I was feeling bad seeing the sufferings of the masses and the dismal situation of the restaurant industry,” the restauranteur told The National, getting the recipe for The Golden Boy just right took a while and a lot of trial and error, but in the end Robbert Jan de Veen came up with a suitable combination, and if you fancy making one yourself here are the ingredients, starting with Dom Perignon champagne-infused buns wrapped in gold leaf, to Japanese Wagyu beef, Beluga caviar, Joselito Bellota 100% Iberico Vintage Jamon, Cheddar with truffle from Wyke Farms, all smothered in a barbecue sauce made from Kopi Luwak coffee and Macallan Single Malt Whisky Rare Cask, and smoked saffron chive mayonnaise made from duck eggs, finally, the burger is bathed in whisky-impregnated smoke for added flavour, would I like to try one? you bet! there is however a slight snag,

the burger is priced at 5,000 euros! at today's rate £4,319 or $5,887, as Robbert Jan de Veen worked on the recipe, word of a new world’s most expensive burger spread around the Netherlands, and as news reached Geor Schuurman, manager of Remia, a Dutch company that makes margarines, sauces, dressings etc., he approached de Veen to buy the first burger. The two also decided that the honor of eating the first Golden Boy should go to someone who deserves it, Robèr Willemse, Chairman of the Royal Dutch Food and Beverage Association, was chosen to be the one to feast on the world’s first Golden Boy burger, as he does, “an outstanding job, and went above and beyond in standing up for the interest of all food and beverages entrepreneurs In the Netherlands,” according to de Veen, the first Golden Boy burger was sold on June 28, but Robbert Jan de Veen is all set to sell more at his restaurant in the Dutch town of Voorthuizen. However, if you plan on actually spending $6,000 for a single burger, you’ll need to order at least 2 weeks in advance, and also make a $750 deposit, just my luck, they do not do a delivery service to the UK!
