Diego, a chef at the South of Houston restaurant, told Vice.com that he had made this expensive burger for International Burger Day on May 28 this year, but this isn’t the best burger that he has tasted.

“Byron in London served me the best burger I’ve ever had—a beef burger on a brioche bun with dried bacon, Byron sauce, tomato, red onion, and aged cheddar. It cost me about £14 (approx. US$17),” he said.

If you have some extra cash to spend and want to have a taste at this burger, make sure to tell Diego in advance as “it takes a lot of prep time.”
