Strange but delicious Japanese hamburgers

There are so many interesting hamburgers in Japan that haven’t reached to North America probably because of their unusual concepts. Various kinds of Rice Burgers from Japan’s popular fast food chain, Mos Burger, are definitely my personal favorites.

↓ Kinpira Rice Burger. Sauteed and simmered root vegetables in between the rice “buns”.

↓ Yakiniku Rice Burger.

Recently, a new kind of hamburger began gaining its popularity in Japan.

It is called “Kitakata Ramen Burger”. The ramen noodles are used in place of hamburger buns, and the noodles have Kitakata flavor, one of the most tastiest ramen flavors in Japan which was originated in Kitakata City, Fukushima Prefecture. In between the “buns” lay familliar toppings for typical Ramen noodles such as naruto (sliced fish cake), green onions, mianma (cooked and seasoned chinese bamboo shoots) and your choice of pork or chicken.

The taste is not overly strong but pleasantly flavorful. Noodles are moist, chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside.

Kitakata Ramen Burger is only sold at “Michi no Eki: Kitakata No Sato” in Kitakata City but you can also order online from FM Kitakata Select Shop’s website.

If you are in Tokyo, you can enjoy Ramen Burgers in Harajyuku at a restaurant called “Pink No Kobuta” (pink piglet).

Newly opened in August 2010, the modern cafe-style restaurant carries 5 flavors to choose from: Soy sauce, Miso, Tonkotsu (pork bone and soy sauce), Salt, and Spicy. Inside the burger are some shredded cabbage, bean sprouts, naruto, mianma and so on. Toppings like beni shouga (sliced and pickled red ginger), spicy oil, and takana (pickled greens) are free of charge.

Why not be a little adventurous and try different types of burgers while staying in Japan? ;)
