The hamburger is a "umami bomb comprised of Kobe beef, foie gras, crispy pancetta, white truffles and caviar." Ketchup and mayonnaise are complimentary.
"The caviar add as a sense of luxury and an added burst of flavors," said Panpinyo, who is known as Chef Nok by his colleagues.
The hamburger is hoping on landing the title of "most expensive burger" in the city.
"We thought about charging $999 for it, but realized no one would buy that," said Abigail Tan, an executive with the hotel company, according to the Daily News. "For $250, someone may buy it and split it up. "
Despite the effort, the Indulgence Burger is not the city's most expensive burger. Serendipity 3 sells Le Burger Extravagant, a hamburger with truffles, caviar, and a gold and a diamond toothpick for $295. A portion of the price is donated to the Bowery Mission, the Daily News reported.
If $250 for the Indulgence hamburger is too much for you, then don't worry. The restaurant also offers several Asian-inspired burgers, in prices ranging from $12 to $17.
