Now THAT'S A Burger - Have It Your Way

THE Burger, to be exact, by Burger King and only available (currently) in London, at the price of (lets see, today's exchange rate was about $1.79 per Pound) $169 American (give or take).

It's a fund raiser, folks, so besides the cost of the ingredients: flame grilled Wagyu beef, white truffles, Cristal Champagne onion straws, Pata Negra ham drizzled in Modena Balsamic vinegar, lambs lettuce, organic white wine and shallot infused mayo, pink Himalayan rock salt, enclosed in an Iranian saffron and white truffle dusted bun; the leftover proceeds go to Help a London Child charity. Available for sale one day per week, the goal is to sell 10 each day it goes on sale.

So why not in Dallas - what would the ingredients consist of? Lately the joke has been about Jenny Burgers, but what about Jenny Burgers (made out of some other product than elephant, c'mon) to help give the "J" a brand new home? It could happen.
