Giving new meaning to indulgence, a burger costing $666 has been released in the US. Not only is the burger insanely expensive, but there's also no white linen or fancy pageantry to eating it — it's served from a food truck.

The most expensive burger in the world was, until last week, made by Serendipity 3 and sold for a whopping $300 each. But the challenger to the throne, a pentagram-branded burger you can only buy from a black-and-red food truck run by New York City's 666 Burger, is a clear winner at more than twice the price.

While there is some speculation about whether or not the burger is real, the 666 Burger Facebook page claims the following: "It is real. We have an unbridled disgust for these types of burgers and seething anger towards those that make them and try to sell them as something fancy and worthy of respect, when in essence, it’s just a chef/customer being a douchebag. Call a spade a spade."

The charmingly-named 'Douche Burger' contains caviar, lobster and truffles on top of a foie-stuffed, gold-leaf-wrapped, Kobe beef patty finished off with BBQ sauce made using Kopi Luwak coffee that's passed through the digestive tract of the Asian palm civet.

As to whether the burger is any good, rocker Tommy Lee tweeted "this burger rocks" on his Twitter feed and the company itself has said: "[It] may not taste good, but [it] will make you feel rich."
