Gene Wilder, the star of "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory," died at his home in Stamford, Connecticut, last week.

A bar in Australia is paying tribute to Gene Wilder, who died last week at the age of 83, with a psychedelic “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”-esque beef burger.

Bar Luca in Sydney is selling the kaleidoscopic $16 “Beauregard Burger” ― consisting of beef, tomato soup jelly, fries, popping cheese, blueberry onion jam and a special “Wonka sauce” ― as part of its “Wonka Week” until Saturday.

Sat within a multi-colored rainbow milk bun, it looks positively scrumdiddlyumptious. And one lucky diner is guaranteed a mystery prize if they find a golden ticket inside their meal.

It’s the latest in a line of tributes to Wilder, who died of complications from Alzheimer’s disease at his home in Stamford, Connecticut on August 28.

Jason Mecier reimagined the actor in candy form with this sweet portrait, while British rock group Coldplay remembered him with a magical rendition of “Pure Imagination.”
