Would This Hamburger Be Worth $100 To You?
Bally's Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey has a new item on its menu, their 'Carving Board Burger' that will set you back a cool C note.
What's in it? It starts with 40 ounces (2 1/2 lbs!) of kobe beef, topped with a hefty slab of prime rib, topped with braised short ribs, topped with pickled tomatoes, and finally with a "fonduta" of melted Gorgonzola cheese and balsamic syrup. The whole monstrosity is served on something called an "herbed lardo toasted Italian focaccia."
Lardo is sure the word for it.
The thing could probably feed at least three adult humans, or New Jersey's governor Chris Christie prior to his recent bariatric weight loss surgery.
Would you shell out $100 for this?
