Is a new South Yorkshire restaurant really serving up gold-plated burgers for £100 each?
The world’s most extravagant burger could be set to go on sale in South Yorkshire – a gold-plated bun that will set you back £100.
The 24-carat gold covered feast is set to rival the £850 gold-coated steak on offer at upmarket Knightsbridge eatery Salt Bae.
The burger is reportedly the creation of Dope Burger which is set to launch its fourth outlet in Doncaster with a branch in Cleveland Street.
The restaurant - which will stock an array of hotdogs and burgers - was announced last month.
But its is unclear if the luxury £100 burger will actually take pride of place on the menu – or if its just an elaborate publicity stunt to announce the arrival of the firm’s fourth branch, following on from restaurants in Leeds and Hull.
A TikTok video showing the creation went viral – and the firm later shared a post on its Facebook page about news coverage with a ‘crying with laughter’ emoji, suggesting the burger might not be hitting the streets of Doncaster just yet.
It also claimed the burger had ‘sold out’ with a message that simply read ‘trigger warning.’
A spokesman told Hull Live: "Doncaster is super exciting for us as it will be our first Dope Burger franchise not directly owned by the company.
"It's really exciting. We are working closely with a London-based franchise company to market future Dope Burger franchise opportunities in other cities in the UK and eventually in Europe.
"It gives other entrepreneurs and professionals a chance to trade under the Dope Burger brand with a tried and tested business plan and product."
