Ambrosia On The Spot in Randwick, a suburb of Sydney, has made a 95.5-kilogram (about 210.5 pounds) burger to beat the current Guinness World Record holder for "largest hamburger commercially available", the 84-kilogram burger from Mallie's Sports Grill & Bar in Southgate, Michigan.

Reuters says that the burger will be on the menu for the next year for AUD $1,500 ($1,220). Aside from the ginormous beef patty, the burger is made of 120 eggs, 150 slices of cheese, 1.5 kilograms of beets, 2.5 kilograms of tomatoes, and almost 2 kilograms of lettuce, topped with a special sauce on a sesame seed bun. In The Daily Telegraph, restaurant owner Joe El-Ajouz said the burger took almost 24 hours to create and three months to plan. (Note: In The Daily Telegraph article, El-Ajouz says the burger won't be on the menu, but I'm assuming he later realized that it had to be on the menu to qualify as a record. Methinks he won't get many orders for it.)
