To celebrate selling its five millionth food and drink voucher in the UK, online marketplace Groupon partnered with London-based restaurant merchant, Honky Tonk, and created The Glamburger.
Chef Chris Large made the burger patty with 220 grams of Kobe Wagyu beef minced with 60 grams of New Zealand venison to perfectly balance the fat content, with a rich center of black truffle brie to create a liquid pocket once the meat has cooked. The burger patty is then seasoned with smoked Himalayan salt and served with a Canadian lobster poached in Iranian saffron. Atop the lobster was maple syrup coated streaky bacon, Beluga caviar and a hickory smoked duck egg intricately covered in edible gold leaf. The bun is seasoned with a Japanese matcha and cream mayonnaise and coated in gold leaf. The finishing touches are a mango and champagne jus and grated white truffle.
