Your guide to decadent burger bliss!
Some chefs have dared to take the art of burger-making to a whole new level. While a classic is still a classic, you have to admire the creativity and taste combinations that have come about from this trend that’s sweeping the nation. Here are the 8 most extravagant burgers in the US.
1. The Original DB Burger – DB Bistro Moderne, Miami, FL
Do Miami right by getting the glitziest burger in town. Sink your teeth into this juicy burger of pure sirloin that’s filled with braised short ribs, foie gras and black truffles. What could be more decadent than a center of foie gras?
2. The 777 Burger – Le Burger Brasseries, Las Vegas, NV
Ok, so perhaps there is something a little more outrageous than a burger filled with foie gras. This burger is made with Kobe beef and is topped with goat cheese, pancetta, foie gras AND Maine lobster. It will leave you speechless, especially when you get the bill. It’s $777, but to be fair, that price includes a bottle of Dom Perignon.
3. The Steak Tartare Burger – Flip Burger Boutique, Atlanta, GA
Maybe you like it raw. And in that case, you should try this raw one, made with classic steak tartare. It’s topped with capers, naturally!
4. The Peanut Butter and Jellousy Burger – Slater’s 50/50, CA
What do you get when you cross a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a burger? This bizarre creation that somehow works. Thick-cut bacon, creamy peanut butter and sweet jelly top a big hunk of beef burger. Californians are lucky that they can find this burger at 6 different locations in the state.
5. The Ramen Burger – Smorgasburg, Brooklyn, NY
New Yorkers line up out the door to bite into this. The burger is glazed in a shoyu sauce and sandwiched between buns made of ramen noodles.
6. The World Famous Adam Emmenecker – Jethro’s BBQ, Des Moines, IA
Named for the Missouri Valley Conference MVP of 2008, this massive burger looks more like a feast for 10. This Angus steak burger is decked out with pork tenderloin, applewood bacon, tender beef brisket, buffalo chicken tenders, fried cheese and a host of melted cheeses to seal the deal. It’s got everything. Need we say more?
7. The Luther Burger – Crave Real Burgers, CO
You do-nut know what splurging is until you’ve had your burger on a donut. Get it? The good people of Colorado sure do and at multiple locations. Beefy burgers topped with a friend egg, bacon and cheddar cheese are tucked inside a sweet glazed donut for a wild combination of sweet and savory.
8. S’mores Burger – River City Café, Myrtle Beach, SC
It sounds too weird to be true, but the sweetness of the marshmallow cream, peanut butter and Nutella balance out perfectly with the well-seasoned meaty beef patty. Somehow, it just works. Plus, you won’t need to order a separate dessert. Score!
