$666 burger at New York food truck

Are you sick of how ridiculous some of the burgers out there have become? Does the idea of a $200 burger made with Kobe beef and an array of stupidly expensive toppings make your blood boil?

If so, you aren’t alone. Enter New York’s 666 Burger’s “Douche Burger”.

For a mere $666, the NYC food truck will prepare a burger with the following fixins:

- Foie gras stuffed Kobe beef patty wrapped in gold leaf

- Gruyere cheese melted in champagne steam

- Lobster

- Truffles

- Caviar

- BBQ sauce made with Kopi Luwak coffee beans, which have been ingested and defacated back out by an Asian palm civet, a small cat like mammal native to Southeast Asia

-  Pentagram branded bun served in a wrapper of three $100 bills that you keep when you are done

Of course, this burger is more of a joke than anything else. Owner Franz Aliquo created the monstrosity as a satirical jab at all of the other totally unnecessary “status” burgers out there, like the $295 Serendipity Burger or Hubert Keller’s $5,000 “Fleurburger” in Las Vegas. The real draw is to get folks to come to the truck just to see or discuss the D-burger, and then actually purchase one of their $6.66 burgers they usually sell.

Of course, as Aliquo tells Bloomberg Businessweek, if someone wants to come up and actually buy the $666 burger, “I’ll tell you that you’re an a-hole, but I’m still going to take your money.”

Should be “defecated” not defacate. Either way I’d hate to have the job of harvesting those coffee beans.

Pretty funny, but also a REALLLLY long way to go for a joke. I mean, that means he has to actually have all that stuff on hand, right?

Yes Edward, Rommey does feed his dogs (6) these. It may be something we need to talk to our next president about.

“Douche Burger” … really? A less appetizing name would be hard to find, I think.

To really be called a “Douche Burger” they need to require ordering it via iPhone, the official Douche telecommunications device.
