The Burger: Burger King Debuts World's Most Expensive Hamburger

Would you pay $20 for a hamburger? How about $200 ? Fast food giant Burger King is hoping that you will consider it, in the name of charity of course. The world’s most expensive hamburger, simply dubbed “The Burger,” made its debut last week in West London, and all proceeds from the sales will benefit the Help a London Child charity, which provides assistance to less advantaged young people. The burger is made of Wagyu beef, white truffles, Pata Negra ham slices, Cristal onion straws, Modena balsamic vinegar, lambs lettuce, pink Himalayan rock salt, organic white wine and shallot infused mayonnaise in an Iranian saffron and white truffle dusted bun. Check out this ABC news report on this decadent burger:

Doesn’t everything sound cooler in an English accent?

Baconhenge: A Monument to Greasy Breakfast Food

Behold. This is Baconhenge, a culinary tribute to Stonehenge, the famed, prehistoric monument. Looking at it is either making you feel awfully hungry or just plain awful. That depends on how much you enjoy saturated fat. The breakfast shrine, constructed from french toast sticks and bacon, rests atop an onion, mushroom and potato frittata. Thanks to Carol Squires for the photo!

Lobster Ice Cream

If this blistering heat wave hasn’t tipped you off already, let me tell you that the summer season is in full swing. A timeless remedy to beat the heat is ice cream. Just imagine, you walk into your neighborhood parlor on a particularly blistering afternoon. You order a double scoop, grab a spoon, and start digging in. As the first bite instantly cools your palate, you taste a little bit of ice, a little bit of cream, and a big chunk of crustacean? Say what?

No, that isn’t a typo. Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium serves lobster ice cream. According to their website, they “buy cooked lobsters from a local lobster pound, pick the meat, butter it, and then fold it into the ice cream.” The sweet shop has four locations in Maine and Massachusetts, and the butter flavored ice cream is one of their most popular items for shipping. The unique flavor was created to prove to customers that Ben and Bill’s really makes their own ice cream. Order some by clicking here.

My Big Fat Ethnic Graduation

The dawn of summer usually brings about the arrival of various graduation parties. In fact, for some particular reason this year, I felt like a Graduation Party Crasher…and with so many different varieties of people closing chapters of their educational lives and moving on to better things, I decided to document one of the experiences. Let’s hop in the time machine and visit another one of our Foodbeast family (literally, this guy is my younger brother) as he moves on from the hype that is “highschool”.

Salad with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, seasoned and topped with nuts (of course, no tomatoes!)

Doing it right with the falafel (fried balls of spiced fava beans).

The guts of the spinach pie (also pictured above).

Cheese pie, done up with a little seasoning and opened for easy access.

Hummus…no middle eastern celebration is proper without it.

Roasted chicken, food porn at its finest. Served with a little garlic sauce….GAH DAMN.

Take some of those purple pickled beets, put them on an open pita with some garlic sauce, chicken, some greens and fold that bad boy into a burrito-esque sandwich…and go find another change of underwear.

The grad, Andrew, flashin’ the pearly yellows with the pretty mother, Lina “You Didn’t Eat Enough, Let Me Get You Some More” Ayrouth. Everyone out there that is now a proud member of the class of 2008, whether it be College, University, High school or even Kindergarten …from the Foodbeast crew, best of luck and congratulations on your graduation!

Lean Pocket: 4 Cheese Pizza

Working as a Foodbeast editor is fun. Unfortunately, with so many awesome places to eat in the world and so many amazing delicacies, it’s often hard to keep off the extra pounds. I used to be all about Hot Pockets, but lately I’ve been catching these amazing spin-offs called “Lean Pockets” for cheap at my local Ralph’s grocery store. With 7 grams of fat and upwards of 15 grams of protein per pocket, it’s definitely perfect for my mission to one day be the body building champ of the world (psyche!).
