Would You Buy a $500 Burger?
The burger is being whipped up by Mirko Paderno, and is said to be made with 2 ounces of white truffles and Kobe beef. Of course, Kobe beef is one of the 6 most lied-about products in the food industry, and when we called to confirm the costly comfort food actually was made with authentic Japanese Kobe we couldn't get an answer. The burger does need to be ordered 48 hours in advance, so perhaps the lag time has to do with getting the real deal flown in from Japan. At half a G, it'd better be legit.
