Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has revealed that his new restaurant will feature a burger on its menu that costs a whopping £80!
The Michelin-starred chef’s new venue, which will be opening on December 4, is set to impress diners with its array of exciting new dishes, made with high-quality ingredients. However, people cannot get over the burger on the menu which costs £80.
The burger will be available to try at Gordon Ramsay’s latest venue, the posh Knightsbridge department store Harrods. Previously, the iconic £80 burger has only been available to try at the chef’s Las Vegas venue.
‘The Gordon Ramsay burger’ promises an “experience like no other”, as the Wagyu burger includes a beef patty, seared Wagyu sirloin, truffle Pecorino cheese, cep mayonnaise and fresh black truffle.
In addition to this burger, diners can also opt for the ‘Lobster and Shrimp burger’ served with pickled vegetables and herb aioli, that costs £42.
But if this is still out of your price range, there’s also the ‘American burger’ for £21, which includes a beef patty, American cheese, butter lettuce, tomato, pickles, red onion and burger relish.

For £21 you could opt for the ‘Cheeky Dawg’ if none of these burgers is taking your fancy. This consists of a heritage beef hot dog that’s topped with braised ox cheek, horseradish, house pickles and cress.
Bear in mind, fries are an extra £6 at standard portion size, served with chipotle ketchup.
For a little more oomph, diners can opt for the sweet potato fries that are served with vanilla powdered sugar and honey jalapeño mayo for £6.
Or if you’re feeling fancy, there are the truffle parmesan fries served with truffle aïoli and homemade ketchup, which is available for £9.
The 54-year-old chef announced the news of his new restaurant on Instagram, where many of his fans were overjoyed by the announcement.
One fan wrote: “My heart is melted, if my net worth was the same as your weekly salary, I would definitely come to London tomorrow to taste that piece of heaven.”
Another added: “Can’t wait to officially visit your restaurant after this Covid mess is over.”

In a statement to the restaurant website Hot Dinners, the chef said: “I’ve been perfecting burgers for years in America and now at Harrods we are taking it to the next level.
“Championing some of the most incredible ingredients from amazing British providers, producers, artisans and growers, all cooked to absolute perfection and served with sensational sides, I guarantee this will be a burger experience like no other.”
Unsurprisingly, those who weren’t happy shared their disappointment over on Twitter.
Twitter account The Food Doctor tweeted: “I can’t imagine a burger ever tasting good enough to justify that price tag.”
Meanwhile, food writer Chris Pople tweeted: “The rule of expensive burgers is – they’re always terrible.”
He later added in a separate post: “Main cause of the £80 appears to be Wagyu sirloin which appears to be an addition to the beef patty? Very odd.”
