The Dot Com Lunch At Feenies

burger1.jpg

Last Saturday, after our normal Dot Com Pho, I wanted to set up another dot com lunch at Feenie’s restaurant. The reason I wanted to go there was because Feenie’s has one of the most expensive hamburger in the country. I asked the other fellow dot com pho bloggers to come along. Amazingly, all of them agreed.

The Feenie Burger starts at $16 but you can add extra stuff to it to bring the price to $54. Add in tax, drinks and a 17% auto tip because we had 8 people and you’re looking at a $500 lunch. The burger is made from 100% certified Angus beef, served medium with sauteed mushrooms, cheese and bacon. We went all out and added the pan seared foie gras, and beef short ribs. The waiter told us that the maxed-out burger has 4,000 calories. And if you add in some poutine, like Stephen Fung did, the count goes to a heart attack inducing 6,000 calories!

Attending this dot com lunch was Ed Lau, Stephen Fung, Michael Kwan, Leo Chiang, Gary Ng, Greg Mogan, Sarah and myself. It was a great lunch. I am looking forward to doing it again.

    Is that snake on the burger?

    1. John Chow says:

      That’s foie gras.

        Nothing beats a good slab of duck liver. What is Poutine?

        1. KingJacob says:

          Isnt it gravy or some type of cheese gravy?

        2. Richard says:

          Poutine is a French Canadian invention. French fries smothered in gravy with cheese curds… Go to Montreal and you are sure to find and sample the best poutine there is…

          1. Chips (French Fries), Cheese and Gravy is our national dish. We’ll have to come up with a fancy name for it.

      2. Do they have a discount on veggie burgers? Say maybe just $50 instead of $54 🙂

        1. John Chow says:

          The veggie burger is $14.

          1. Leo says:

            And you get laughed at by the kitchen staff 😉

          2. Gdog says:

            I think the Veggie burger has 34% autograt, instead of 17%!

    2. Googlelady says:

      Snake? Do you like it 😉 I have an idea to open a MC Snake 😉

  2. Shawn Knight says:

    Were you able to finish the entire burger? How much did it weigh?

    1. Ed Lau says:

      Yes, we all finished. I tossed half of the bun because after squeezing the giant burger in my hands for a few bites, it moved and eventually became excess bread.

      It was probably a good pound and a half I’d say, in total.

    2. Stephen says:

      For some reason, everyone had greasy fingers except me. My ninja burger eating skills strike again! I was also the first to down the whole thing :mrgreen: I even used some of the bread from the bread basket to soak up all the grease. Delish! 😆

  3. John Cow says:

    It’s not too late to become a vegetarian!

    1. Googlelady says:

      Oh the cow is in the house everyone shhh… Hey Cow do you like Mc Snake?

      1. DeboHobo says:

        Nice job on the radio ‘cow’, real etensive vocab you got there.

        Mooooo for everything 😎

  4. Who on earth cares how much the burger weighs or if Chow finished it. Big deal. We now know you’re obsessed, Shaaawn.

    1. Kanute says:

      Wow it makes me hungry. 😆

  5. Gdog says:

    Dude…that burger was soooo good. My heart is skipping beats periodically…in that case, it’s time for a power nap to burn some calories. :mrgreen:

    1. Leo says:

      I just woke up from my nap. What was up with that weird hail storm anyways? I still taste foie gras.

  6. Holy heart attack lunch! 😛

  7. Lori says:

    Hec, I’ll only charge you $400. Come by my house and I’ll cook you up a meal like no other!! Afterall, I did cook on ranch for years;)

  8. MrGPT says:

    That’s a BIG burger!

  9. Israel says:

    wowsers, those burgers are just plain ridiculous. i have never seen anything like that.

  10. Doesn’t seem like a lot of burger for $600!

    1. krillz says:

      In some countries I bet you could buy at least one cow for that price, you’d had burgers for a week or two.

      1. Ed Lau says:

        Yeah but they wouldn’t have foie gras on them.

        1. krillz says:

          haha yeah true, but if you don’t wash them you’d have regular grass, don’t know much about the taste difference but hey grass at least.

          1. Ed Lau says:

            …grass? What are you talking about?

          2. Stephen says:

            I don’t tihnk he knows what Foie Gras is 😉

          3. Leo says:

            Haha, foie grass!!!
            Sorry, I’m delirious from exhaustion right now so everything is funny.

      2. In my country you can buy a cow, a lamb, 5 chickens, 3 ducks for that price! 😐

    2. Ed Lau says:

      There were eight of us.

      1. krillz says:

        okey then, for a day or two.

  11. JerkyBeef says:

    You guys seem to know how to do it right… was it worth the 6k calories? John you look a little burgered out…

    1. John Chow says:

      Stephen was the only one dumb enough to add the poutine. If we don’t see him for Dot Com Pho on Saturday, we will assume he had a heart attack and died.

      1. Stephen says:

        Hey, I finished first even with the poutine and except for the McHeadaches, I feel just dandy!

  12. Nick says:

    Who in their right mind would pay that much for a burger!?!

    1. krillz says:

      someone that has the money?

      1. Lori says:

        Yeah because “those” people are lame 🙄

    2. John Chow says:

      Good thing we were in our left mind. 😈

  13. Alex Shalman says:

    All I know is that once again John succeeded in making me really hungry.

    1. Lori says:

      Well, we just got through eatin’ a bacon cheeseburger and it only cost $6.00 per plate. It came complete with curly fries and homemade peach cobbler!

  14. Googlelady says:

    wow more than $54 for a burger? I promise that when I make more money than you JC x 100 I will go there and visit you 🙄

  15. Oh no. More food?!??! Making me hungry there, John. 😯

  16. Leo says:

    I’m making some Chinese tea right now to counteract the grease . . . and a couple digestive enzyme pills too 😉

    1. Ed Lau says:

      I immediately went to Starbucks after and got a green tea…

    2. Gdog says:

      I am also drinking tea myself…frickin hell, I’m sweating foie gras! 💡

    3. Stephen says:

      I made a hole coffee pot full. I’m on my second pot.

  17. …wow. I eagerly anticipate the day when I can spend $54 on a burger and not work a double shift to make up for it 😯

  18. DG says:

    How does the $54 Feenie burger compare to the “Diva at the Met’s” $34 DC burger? By the way, these prices are pretty fair – in London you can’t find a burger for less than £20 in a decent restaurant.

    More food posts, please!

    1. Burger + Decent Restaurant. Something just doesn’t sound right there.

  19. Holy crap what a burger.

    I want one.

  20. John Chow says:

    It’s almost dinner time and I don’t feel hungry!

    1. Leo says:

      Same, but I’m drinking up all the tea in China.

      1. Leo says:

        Ok, now I’m hungry again 🙁

        1. Gdog says:

          I had two slices of pizza to help digest my burger–it’s not working for some reason. 😕

  21. I will make it to lunch before my death date Dec 12th Check out more http://www.charleshighsmith.com

  22. CatherineL says:

    Yuk – I hate foie gras. It tastes disgusting and it is so unethical. I almost had a huge row with a waiter at Gleneagles because he more or less tried to force the stuff on me. And he went on and on about how their geese were well looked after while they were force fed. It almost put me off my dinner. No wonder your burgers were expensive if that was what was on them.

  23. John, Next time you will organised dot com lunch, don’t forget to call me, 😛 a star in the dot com business in the making http://www.blog.shankerbakshi.com but yeah u ‘ll be the idol for me, for many.

  30. Klaudio says:

  32. Well that is realy expensive to pay more than $50 per burger.

  33. Alopecia says:

    I guess once in a while one must pamper oneself with 4000 calories and $500 lunch.
    The burger definitely looks YUMM and I am sure if it comes in front of me I would forget the calories in it and just grab to eat it.

  34. cbenc12 says:

    Man.. that burger looks too good to be true! I want onee… 😈

  35. rebecca says:

    I’m sorry, I couldn’y help myself. I was laughing so hard I almost pee’d on myself. It looks like a turdburger. Sorryyyyy!
