One thing I miss about the McDonald’s and Burger King in Singapore are the packets of chili sauce they include with your meal. As popular as Sriracha is over here in the U.S., I always wondered why packets of Sriracha sauce are not offered at American fast food chains. Well, it looks like I can now conveniently carry packets of Sriracha with me on my next trip to the golden arches. Asian food company, Lee Kum Kee, now sells individual travel-sized Sriracha packets for $0.10 each! Pair these packets with a “sprayracha” and you’ll always be prepared to give your food that extra spicy kick!
Remember the man who ordered a burger with 1,050 bacon strips? Apparently that wasn’t enough for Mr. Sato because he came back for more. However, this time instead of bacon, he was feeling some cheese—1,000 slices of cheese. The burger weighed approximately 25 pounds and contained a hefty 45,661 Calories. 45,000 of those Calories were from the cheese alone!
Mr. Sato was surely ambitious but he could only get through 350 slices of cheese before calling it quits. I really hope he’s not lactose intolerant.
Japan’s Burger King has redefined the term “supersize” by giving customers the option of adding 15 strips of bacon to their burger for only 100 yen or $1.25. But one man in particular really took advantage of that deal. Paying the equivalent of $80, this Japanese man decided to order a burger with 1,050 strips of bacon. I can feel my own arteries clog up by watching him eat. Like they say, you can never have too much bacon! Or can you?
Japan has to have the coolest Burger King. I mean, I know they installed those luxurious sound booths, but I think this giant burger definitely takes the cake. BK Japan has announced that they will be selling a 22 cm (or 8.6 inch) burger that will come in two flavors — avocado and cheese nacho. It’s conceptually like pizza where you cut the mega burger up into slices to serve. Apparently, this pizza-size burger costs $21.50 each and will only be available from Dec. 8 to 25. I think I’m going to try one when I’m back in Japan!
Lay your back against the cushiony seat, slide your iPod into the dock and listen to your eclectic playlist as you bite into a Whopper. The typical chatter of a fast food restaurant is now drowned out by songs of your choice. Sound too good to be true? Well, the latest Burger King store in Japan has installed these “Sound Spots” for two which apparently provide relatively good sound quality without disturbing the surrounding tables. Looks like the BKs in Japan outclass the ones here!
