Ridiculously Expensive Versions of Our Favorite Fast Foods

Fast food is appropriately named so due to how fast it is prepared as well as the fact that it’s dirt cheap. However, there are a couple of items that will cost you an arm and a leg if you’re really willing to get it. What makes them so pricey is the fact that they’re over-the-top, gourmet versions of your regular, everyday favorite fast foods. So what do you say? Are you willing to hand over some extra cash for these ridiculously expensive fast foods?

1. Burger – Price: $5000/$666

A regular fast food burger in America could cost as little as $1. Now let’s compare that to McDonald’s $5,000 BBQ Ranch Burgers at the Fleur de Lys restaurant in the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. It should be mentioned though, that the burger is actually free, the $5,000 is for the Chateau Petrus wine. As for an actual expensive burger, that would be the Douche Burger from the 666 Burger food truck in New York City. Part of the reason why it’s so expensive is the fact that the barbeque sauce is made from Kopi Luwak, the most expensive coffee in the world. Though it may not be the best tasting burger ever, as admitted by the food truck owner himself.

2. Hot Dog – Price: $2,300

At 230 Fifth in New York City, you can spend a whopping $2,300 on hot dogs, something you’ll understand later. First of all, it’s a foot-long sausage made from marbled wagyu beef that has been dry aged for 60 days. It also consists of black truffles, all placed within a brioche bun, smeared with white-truffle butter, then topped with organic ketchup and mustard from France. Other toppings also include onions caramelized with a $389 balsamic vinegar and a sauerkraut made with platinum ossetra caviar and a golden leaf. Pretty expensive stuff, right?

3. Pancakes – Price: $1,350

Don’t feel like making your own pancakes from scratch? Then head on over to the Opus One at the Radisson Blu Edwardian in Manchester, UK. The base of the pancake is the same as any other, but the real kicker is the very high-end extras including Scottish Native Paradise lobster, Scottish mussels, Hulle Verge truffles, and Langoustine prawns, all served with hollandaise sauce made with Dom Perignon Rose. Technically, they aren’t listed on the menu though you get them within 20 minutes of your request.

4. Pizza – Price: $850

Pizza is one of those meals that’s really  easy to prepare, even within the comforts of your home. But, if you’re for something other than pepperoni or pineapple toppings then don’t worry, the Steveston Pizza in Richmond, British Columbia has got you covered. It’s known as the SeeNay pizza and for $850, you’ll get to feast on a 12-inch pizza filled with various exotic toppings such as Russian caviar, Italian white truffles, lobster Ratatouille, tiger prawns and smoked Chilean steelhead.

5. Ice Cream – Price: $817

In the world of ice cream, you can choose from over 1,000 amazing flavors. If you ever thought of trying them all, just keep in mind that the Black Diamond sundae over at Dubai’s Scoopi Cafe might just be over your budget. Fork over your $817 and you’ll get only a single scoop of ice cream made with high quality Madagascar vanilla bean that is topped with 23-karat edible gold flakes, Italian truffles and rare ambrosial Iranian saffron. On the upside, you get to keep the bowl and spoon, a product of Versace.
