The Triple-Decker Noodle Burger

Just when you thought America had cornered the market when it came to eating ALL the carbs, Japanese burger chain Loteria one-ups the red-white-‘n-blue with this tri-deck noodle monster. Yes, it’s that carbo-load favorite, noodles on a bun. Times three. Enjoy. • Unlike the triple carbo extravaganza, Jonelle Patrick writes novels set in Tokyo “A genuinely gripping crime […]

The Hamburger Of Luv

Yes, it’s a heart-shaped patty of raw meat. Because what could be more romantic? (Thanks to my friend Mad Caron of Clumsy Dandy fame for spotting this, er, treat.)  • Read a novel set in Tokyo

Yes, Even The Cheese Is Black

I finally tried Burger King Japan’s most recent all-black, all-the-time burger offering, and OMG please don’t look now, but I wolfed it down in record time. It looks pretty weird (especially the BLACK CHEESE) but the taste was I-think-I’d-better-have-another-in-the-interest-of-science good. Bun, cheese and sauce are all flavored with bamboo charcoal and squid ink – two things I’d normally avoid like the […]

I’ll See Your Triple Burger And Raise You A Shrimp Puck

What is Lotteria thinking? Seriously, how could you even bite that thing? I’m not talking about the triple-decker beef-o-rama – I’m eyeing that fried shrimp tower-o-power with the shovelful of tartar sauce just waiting to squish out the other side and all over your shoes (and your socks and your pants and, basically, the shoes of anyone standing within a […]

All You Can Eat Whoppers!

Apparently, however, while the “Bi-King” offers “free unlimited seconds,” you do have to buy a Whopper Combo (about $10) that includes a whopper, fries and a drink AND […]

Apple Burger

What’s with the fruit on burgers here, people? I mean, I like apples. And I like burgers. But can we all agree that apples on burgers just does not go together like, say, peanut butter and chocolate? And while we’re on the subject, apple pie + chocolate chips = what? Mom’s home cookin’ gone rogue? […]

Would You Like Fries On That?

Your eyes do not deceive you: right there between the mustardy-mayo and the all-beef patty is a honkin’ deep-fried swadge of hash browns. In an attempt to challenge the Gurakoro for carb supremacy, this Idaho Burger sneaks in the equivalent of a side of fries, in addition to the side of fries. And see how […]
