The restaurant has advertised the burger in their menu by describing it as, “a brioche burger bathed in 24-karat Gold with double meat, caramelized bacon and double cheese.” The restaurant claims that the gold used for the coating is of the purest form.

Maria Paula, a chef at the restaurant, in a conversation with a local media mentioned that the burger is initially made and then the gold film is put on it, which is the tricky part as it can be damaged if it sticks on the finger. The way it has to be put on the burger is also crucial as the gold foil can get spoiled that way as well.

While a normal burger at the restaurant costs merely $11, the gold plated one is available for roughly $57 which converts to a whopping 200,000 Colombian Pesos.
