This seasonal treat is actually made with kabocha, but I guess “Squash Burger” didn’t have quite the same ka-ching to it. This Pumpkin Burger from Burger King Japan is not only topped with slices of roasted orange vegetable, it also features a special mayo sauce chock full o’ peanuts, almonds, cashews and hazelnuts, go figure.
If you’re a real glutton for pumpkin punishment and two measly slices of squash on your burger isn’t enough, order a Pumpkin Bomb and they’ll pile on eight more for an additional two bucks! Squash-a-licious!
Read a novel set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
