A Dutch chef has just created what is believed to be the most expensive burger in the world.

Robbert Jan de Veen, who owns a restaurant called De Daltons, created the hefty meal to raise money for charity, and it ended up being worth a whipping $5,964.

Speaking to The National, he said: “I was feeling bad seeing the sufferings of the masses and the dismal situation of the restaurant industry.

“Therefore, I decided to create the world’s most expensive burger and donate the entire income to charity to do good for the society.”

According to Esquire, the burger, which he named ‘The Golden Boy’, includes Japanese wagyu beef, beluga caviar, Alaskan king crab and white truffle.

It took nearly nine hours to prepare and was purchased by Rober Wilemse, chairman of the Royal Dutch Food and Beverage Association.

“The ingredients complement each other very well and the flavors are intense,” Wilemse told The New York Post.

“Even though this burger is extremely costly, you should still use your hands because that is the only way to eat a burger.”

He added: “Since the bun is covered in gold leaf, your fingers will be golden by the time you finish.”

While confirmation of the burger’s status is pending with the Official World Record Association, the current Guinness World Record holder for the most expensive burger is $4,971, for a burger sold by a restaurant in Oregon in 2011.

We are stuffed just thinking about it.
