A Sydney cafe is flipping out after cooking a hamburger believed to be the world’s biggest.

The Ambrosia on the Spot cafe in Randwick began creating the giant patty at 9.45pm Saturday. Four men were needed to flip the bulging burger, which at 90 kilograms, weighed in at more than the average human.

Cafe owners Joe and Iman El-Ajouz said the burger was finally placed in a bun around 11.45 Sunday morning, eclipsing the previous record of 84 kg, set in Michigan in the United States.

Just flipping the patty was the main challenge for us, but it all went well,” Iman El-Ajouz said…

The giant burger contained the giant beef patty, 120 eggs, 150 slices of cheese, 1.5 kg of beetroot, 2.5 kg of tomatoes and almost 2 kg of lettuce all topped off with a special sauce on a giant sesame seed bun. It was eaten by employees at the cafe, along with supporters such as a bread supplier and a butcher.

More than $2500 was raised for the Sydney Children’s Hospital in the world record attempt. The cafe owners are now awaiting official confirmation from Guinness World Records.

    1/4 pounders for 1000?? 2000?

    Couldn’t they just get the cow to lie down on its side between the bread.

    There is, or was, a restaurant serving some kind of huge steak, and if you could eat all of it, it was free. They did not lose money on this deal. I kind of wonder what happened to this burger after it was completed….By the way, happy election day. In spite of my extreme libertarian/conservative views, I have nothing to say at this time. Good luck to all honest politicians, and a curse upon the rest.

    Center was still too red for me.

    Oops. I read the rest of the article. It was eaten. Good on them.

    #4, You may be talking about the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, where your dinner is free if you can eat the entire meal (a 72 ounce steak, roll with butter, baked potato, ranch beans, shrimp cocktail, and salad) within one hour. Otherwise, the meal costs $72.00. Of 48,000 who have tried, about 8,000 have succeeded.

    HAH, I just got done reading about another Sydney restaurant who makes you finish all your food or they ban you from the restaurant, then THIS… I guess everything evens itself out in the end.

    does it come with a barf bag?

    What a disgusting waste. . .

  12. Luc says:

    Where did they get the bun?

    Yeah, uh, give me one of those and a diet Coke, please…

    Beet root? In a burger?

  15. sargasso says:

    #14 yup. It isn’t a real Aussie burger without a slice of tinned beet root or (in Queensland) a chunk of pineapple. Mayo, is optional.

  16. Cap'nKangaroo says:

    120 eggs, on a burger? what do you need eggs on a burger for?

  17. Angel H. Wong says:


    A sunny side up egg inside a burger makes a world of difference.

    Ugg, BARF !!

  19. Maricopa says:

    # 16 Cap’nKangaroo – what do you need eggs on a burger for?

    cholesterol. Mmmmmm.

    Such challenges exist all over Texas. Four of us, all in a warm Jim Beam glow all tackled such a challenge in Waco. Ours was a 60 oz chicken fried steak with all the trimmings. None of of us even came close!

    This not even close to the record which was just set in Toronto 590 lbs 268 kg

    To me it looks like something from a horror movie. Imagine the lives lost for this inanity.
