A patty made from Kobe Wagyu beef, for health conscious it comes minced with 60 grams of New Zealand venison to balance the fat content. It also consists of a liquid pocket created from black truffle Brie. The Wagyu patty is seasoned with smoked Himalayan salt, while the bun is seasoned with Japanese matcha – a type of powdered green tea and cream mayonnaise. Served with Canadian lobster poached in Iranian saffron, its list of toppings include maple syrup-coated streaky bacon, Beluga caviar and a hickory-smoked duck egg covered in edible gold leaf.
