    This Tokyo small business owner is at the centre of attention after his signature burger was selected to be served to the President. In amongst all the speeches and outings held during Trump’s first visit to Japan as U.S. President, the one thing that stood out for many people was the fact that during his visit to a golf course with the Japanese Prime Minister, the two chose to eat hamburgers. While some criticised the decision to shun the country’s UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage-listed traditional cuisine, others immediately started searching the Internet to find out where they could get their...
  • This Is the Koryo Burger, the Only Food Item Served on North Korea’s State Airline

    NORTH Korea’s state-run airline serves its passengers only one item of food. The Koryo Burger is always served stone cold — straight from the fridge — on a paper doily with an unidenfitied slice of processed meat in the middle. The bun is stale, there’s a slice of processed cheese, a few wispy slices of shredded cabbage or a single lettuce leaf (but usually not both). Some say the mystery sauce is red, some say it’s brown, but most generally agree it’s too watery to be blood left over from the animal that became the patty. It’s pretty much exactly...

    Burgers are good. Melted cheese is also good Put the two together, and we’re not going to be too disappointed. If, like us, you strongly agree with the concept of an extremely cheesy burger, it’s probably worth getting down to Maxwell’s restaurant in Covent Garden, stat.

    The humble steamed bun is taking Hong Kong's culinary scene by storm - and scooping up awards along the way. May Chow, the owner of restaurant Little Bao, has just been voted Asia's best female chef by a panel of over 300 experts. The 32-year-old's restaurant serves what she calls Chinese burgers: steamed white buns filled with braised pork belly, fried chicken or fish. And there are even burgers for dessert, in the form of fried buns sandwiched with ice cream.
  • ‘Impossible’ Meat-Free Hamburger Debuts At Upscale S.F. Restaurants

    It looks like a burger, smells like a burger and even bleeds like one. So, where’s the beef? There’s no animal protein in the Impossible Burger, which made its debut on the San Francisco dining scene Thursday. The idea is to mimic meat so closely that you might not realize it isn’t a traditional hamburger patty. The Impossible Burger is available at two S.F. restaurants — Cockscomb and Jardiniere. Some local vegetarians went to both on Thursday. Luke Ianni hasn’t eaten meat for twenty years, so the taste threw him. “It was so good that I was kinda grossed out,...

    On Thursday, as the Indian Army's Director General of Military Operations Ranbir Singh revealed that the Army had carried out surgical strikes on "terror launchpads" along the Line of Control, social media exchanges began to heat up in both India and Pakistan. Within minutes of Singh's press conference, cashing in on the virtual jingoism, a food joint in National Capital Region, Burger Singh, sent out a mass text message that read: "In light of the surgical strike by Indian defence forces on terrorist camps (POK). We offer 20% discount on all orders..." Scroll.in spoke to Prashant, a call operator at...

    Why have one sexy model eating a burger when you can have three? Carl’s Jr.’s most recent ad campaign features lots of burgers, bacon, and babes. The fast food chain’s newest item is the Bacon 3-Way Burger. The only thing that sells better than bacon is sex, but the restaurant took that to another level with their Three-Way “Fantasy.” The provocative ad spot features former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Genevieve Morton, along with social media babes Emily Sears and Elena Belle. The women, clad only in white string bikinis, make grilling a greasy fast food burger actually look seductive. The...

    Argentina's Primera Division was home to the most delicious form of heckling over the weekend when Racing fans threw a cheeseburger at Belgrano goalkeeper Juan Olave mid-match. It's unclear what the cheeseburger was supposed to symbolize, maybe it was just the most readily-available object to throw? Either way, Olave picked the dang burger up, took two bites and thanked the crowd. I played goalie in a rec league last year. I got a stitch from drinking too much water. This dude is out here eating cheeseburgers. Meanwhile the commenters on YouTube are afraid for his safety. You know what has...

    On Wednesday Governor Cuomo’s New York Wage Board set a new minimum wage for New York City’s 200,000 fast food workers. City establishments will now be required to offer employees at least $15 per hour by the end of 2018. The move also makes it cost effective for companies to fire humans and hire robots. Momentum Machines has developed a robot that can put out one burger every 10 seconds.

    This mammoth monster of a meal includes 1/2 pound of ground venison, 1/2 pound of ground bacon, 1/2 pound of certified angus beef ... and that's just the patty. It's served on a "Big Mother" pretzel bun and topped with crispy fried onions, jalapeño smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato (6 slices!), pickles, secret sauce and a heaping helping of housemade jalapeño cheese (jalapeños, multiple cheddars and BBQ sauce). And they say everything is bigger in Texas. Pssh. The best part? This burger is "only" $20 according to the provider

    The Obama administration's nominee for a senior legal position at the Pentagon is one of the congressional staffers accused by Republicans and intelligence officials of stealing classified documents from the Central Intelligence Agency, Fox News has learned -- and the controversy could imperil her shot at a major career promotion. Sources on Capitol Hill and in the intelligence community say Alissa Starzak, a majority staffer on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) who has been nominated for the position of general counsel to the U.S. Army, is one of two SSCI employees accused by the panel's Republicans, and by...

    They also said, in a letter to Burger King Chief Executive Officer Daniel Schwartz that was dated Thursday, that the burger chain uses taxpayer-supported roads, food safety inspectors and other perks of doing business in the United States. "Now, after profiting from these taxpayer-funded benefits, Burger King intends to move its tax address overseas to avoid paying its fair share for these benefits," the group said in the letter, which was viewed by Reuters.

    She’s got copper-colored locks, a peppy personality, an ethnically diverse group of friends, and she knows how to talk millions of Americans into buying a Monterey Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich. She’s the Wendy’s Girl. The actress who has played the all-knowing, slightly kooky burger lover for two years is a 28-year-old Alabama native named Morgan Smith Goodwin. (She added her second surname after marrying Dave Goodwin, manager of New York City restaurant Gramercy Tavern.) And while her character has remained nameless in the fast food chain’s TV commercials, it’s not a far stretch to assume she’s Wendy, the freckled little...

    SNIP As you've probably realized by now, we have a weakness for extremely quirky food combinations -- hello, Cronut and Ramenburger -- and extraordinarily large things, like the 4,000-pound chocolate cake Guittard made for Beverly Hills' centennial. So how could we not tell you about the Screamin' Pizza Burger? According to Nick, the blogger behind DudeFoods -- and the man who brought the concept of bacon-lattice into the public consciousness -- all you need to make one is two full-size frozen pizzas, one four-pound beef patty and a spatula of mind-blowing proportions. Find instructions and photos -- and details on...

  • Burger King Japan’s New Ninja Burger Comes with a Huge Hulking Slab of Bacon

    Bacon might be the least “ninja” ingredient out there. Aside from being bright-ass red, its scent alone has the power to send every fat kid (or fat kid at heart) running from within at least a three mile radius. Still, we wouldn’t want our ninja burgers made any other way. Starting October 25, Burger King Japan is rolling out a black-bunned hamburger called the “Black Ninja.” Like most of the country’s other chromatically-challenged eats, the BN gets its hue from the bamboo charcoal used to make it, which in this case, also happens to impart a nice smoky smell. But...

Kyoto pizza parlor Pizza Little Party has saved humanity countless hours of counter confusion with the new MegaBurgerPizza. It’s part burger, part pizza, and all mega.
