Sandwiches in the News: BK Japan’s “Meat Monster”

April 18, 2011

According to a number of sources around the internet, Burger King Japan is introducing a new burger which will push the envelope even farther than we thought possible.  Called the “Meat Monster”, the burger includes two hamburger patties, a chicken breast, cheese, and bacon, as well as lettuce, tomatoes and onion.  The creation weighs in at 1,160 calories and costs 820 yen (roughly $10 American).  In addition, BK’s “have it your way” mantra allows for additional ingredients including fish filets and fried eggs (actually a pretty popular burger topping in Japan). 

At this point, theres really nothing I can say thats more ridiculous or extreme than this image, so Ill just let it go.

It’s wretched excess, the kind of thing I would jokingly dream up using their website’s sandwich creator tool.  Still, I can’t help but find myself longing for the challenge of the meat monster, which currently isn’t planned to be exported outside Japan.  If any Japanese readers have an opportunity to try it, be sure and post how it is.  Hopefully good sales and buzz will bring it stateside, possibly to the New York Whopper Bar.  Until then, we’ll all just have to wonder…
