From trends involving fusing two dishes to challenges that can lead you to win big prizes and a huge amount of money, food trends have definitely had a moment in the sun, while people around the world were isolating at home.

Joining the bandwagon is the gold-plated burger, and no wonder netizens are taken aback by its whopping price tag.
In a recent Instagram video uploaded by the food blogger with the username @are_you_hungry007, a person is seen making a 24k gold and silver burger. The vendor is seen assembling a burger by filling toasted buns with a variety of ingredients. The toasted buns are filled with lettuce, cheese, sauces and salami and are topped with a silver sheet. The vendor finishes it off with edible gold dust. The food blogger mentioned in the video that the burger cost Rs 1 lakh!
The video has gathered around 443k views and around 22k likes. The comments section is filled with disturbed netizens complaining about the price. One user commented, “Max to max it could cost maybe around 1000-5000 if he adds gold. Mostly expensive burgers each and every ingredient should be imported like the burger bread quality the veggies he adds, sauces etc (sic).” Meanwhile, another user said, “1 Lakh ma burger ki shop khol lunga (sic).”
