The Douche Burger
By Simonbook - 04 Apr 2015 in
New York City’s 666 Burger food truck has a treat for you. For just $666 you can purchase a foie gras-stuffed Kobe patty covered in Gruyere cheese that’s been melted with champagne steam and topped with lobster, truffles, caviar, and a BBQ sauce made with Kopi Luwak coffee beans that have been pooped out by some sort of animal called the Asian palm civet. The whole thing is then served in a gold-leaf wrapper. It’s called the Douche Burger, and, yes, it really is for sale. Franz Aliquo, 36, co-owner of 666 Burger, explains why.
Why are you selling a $666 Douche Burger?
The idea came from our deep-seated disgust and hatred of all the other douche burgers out there. A burger is about meat, bun, and cheese. All of this other stuff just ruins the flavor.
We were talking about terrible overtopped burgers one night, and my girlfriend at the time said, “Somebody should just make a burger and pile all the rich people stuff on it and it would be the douchiest thing in the world.” So we’re like, “Yeah! We’re gonna do it.” We got our license for the truck, and we’re on the streets about three days a week now. We took everything that people socially associate with rich people food and threw it on a burger and made it the most expensive, disgusting burger ever.
