Just be sure to bring $124.50!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060621/ap_on_fe_st/100_burger

"BOCA RATON, Fla. - A hundred bucks might buy you more than six dozen burgers from McDonald's, but the swanky Old Homestead Steakhouse will sell you one brawny beef sandwich for the same price.


Boca Raton Mayor Steven Abrams could barely speak between bites as he devoured the 20-ounce, $100 hamburger billed as the "beluga caviar of sandwiches."

"Heaven on a bun," restaurant owner Marc Sherry said.

The burger debuted Tuesday at the restaurant in the Boca Raton Resort and Club, where a membership costs $40,000 and an additional $3,600 a year.

"We've never had a hamburger on our menu here so we really wanted to go to the extreme," Sherry said, calling it "the most decadent burger in the world."

At about 5 1/2 inches across and 2 1/2 inches thick, the mound of meat is comprised of beef from three continents — American prime beef, Japanese Kobe and Argentine cattle.

The bill for one burger, with garnishing that includes organic greens, exotic mushrooms and tomatoes, comes out to $124.50 with tax and an 18 percent tip included. The restaurant will donate $10 from each sale to the Make-A-Wish Foundation."


Here's what $100 buys you. (I think I'll pass).

I'd rather have 75 double cheeseburgers from McDonald's ............. That's just ridiculous. No burger is that good, I don't care. My favorite burgers are my dad's on the grill, not some grilled up in a restaraunt...

When you realize the cost of Japanese Kobe Beef, (which, by the way, is the finest beef in the world) that price comes out about right. Not a bad price, concidering people pay alot more for salty fish eggs!

I'd take a bite for $10.00, just to get an idea of the flavor.


KOBE BEEF
What is Kobe Beef?

Kobe beef is considered the most exclusive beef in the world.

Technically speaking, there's no such thing as Kobe beef, it is merely the shipping point for beef from elsewhere in Japan.

What is called "Kobe beef" comes from the ancient province of Tajima, now named Hyogo Prefecture, of which Kobe is the capital.

Real beef connoisseurs, however, still refer to it as Tajima beef. This beef comes from an ancient stock of cattle called "kuroge Wagyu" (black haired Japanese cattle).

Today they are raised on only 262 small farms, most of which pasture fewer than five cows, and the largest of which run only 10 to 15 animals.

Each animal is pampered like a spoiled child. Their diets are strictly controlled and during the final fattening process, cattle are fed hefty quantities of sake and beer mash.

Each animal gets a daily massage. The theory is that mellow, relaxed cows make good beef!

Reminds me of that old saying I just made up moments ago... "How many people buy a Harley because of the precision engineering and how many buy it because of the name."

No matter where the beef was raised, the hamburger comes out looking the same in the end.

I must agree with JazzMan. I'll say what my coach says in the lunch line at our highschool "Aww who cares, It all comes out as a Turd!!!"

Interesting... Not too often you'll see a reflection of the photographer in a news story photo. Rather amateurish IMHO.

I'm with you. I love a good burger, but that looks kind of nasty. The shrooms have got to go too.

The only burger I'd spend a few $$ on, would be the 6 pound burger from Denny's Beer Barrel Pub.



To me, that $25 burger looks much better that that $125 burger.

FYI, the quote was actually never "you are what you eat". It's "Tell me what you eat, and I'll tell you what you are" which means something completely different, which is that you're analyzing the person based on a part of their behavior.

Just goes to show that money doesn’t buy intelligence.

Or

That some people have more money than brains.

WAITER! This burger has far too much Argentinian cattle meat. Send it back and tell them to put in more Kobe. Heh, philistines!

My wife could eat that in half the time if you got her stoned.

When we first started living together some 20 odd years ago I made the mistake of getting her stoned once, just once. She ate everything in the kitchen and wanted more.

Now you all know why I no longer smoke. A contact high could be a dangerous thing.
