Las Vegas Hotel Offers $5,000 Burger Combo

LAS VEGAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There’s a new burger king in Las Vegas, and it’s not fast food.

Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino’s upscale restaurant Fleur de Lys offers a burger combo meal that costs a whopping $5,000.

The “FleurBurger 5000” contains a hamburger made with Kobe beef, layered with fois gras on a brioche bun, with rich black truffles on the side – valued at $75 by itself – and a bottle of 1990 Chateau Petrus poured in Ichendorf Brunello stemware exclusively imported from Italy, which the customer gets to keep.

Restaurant manager Tobias Peach says the high-end Chateau Petrus was chosen to compliment the burger, which takes their chefs about 25 minutes to make just right.

The FleurBurger even comes with a certificate and its own serial number, so high rollers can brag to their friends about their fancy feast in Sin City.

Peach says 15 burgers have been sold so far, mostly to gamblers who have hit the jackpot, and “Vegas big shots who want to show off.”

And although the baller burger is fancier than your typical drive-thru dinner, that doesn’t mean you can’t still order it “your way.”

Peach says patrons can add anything to the burger they’d like and jokes, “If they’re paying $5,000 for a burger, I’ll even put popcorn on it – whatever they want!”
