Among the latest trends in the food world are sushi burgers, which isn’t surprising when you look at the marvelous concoction pictured above. Instagram can’t resist something like that.

The “burgers” use sushi rice as a stand in for a conventional bun with raw fish, fried soft-shell crab, fried chicken or a beef patty in-between. Toppings consist of avocado, spicy mayonnaise, pickled ginger and red cabbage.

Although a sushi burger is on the menu of Japanese fast food chain MOS Burger, several homemade variations have surfaced on the Internet, including the additional examples pictured below.

McDonald’s Japan is gearing up to supersize the Big Mac with a new “Giga Big Mac” burger that will be taller and wider than a conventional Big Mac and offer four, rather than two, beef patties for “2.8 times more meat”.

It’s described as being perfect for diners looking for “a satisfied sense of accomplishment”.

Yeah, make sure to take a picture that’s suitable for framing.

The chain is upping the ante further by selling “grand size” add-ons such as 1.7 times more fries and drinks that are twice as large as a conventional offering.

The Giga Big Mac and associated add-ons will debut at select McDonald’s locations in Japan beginning today.

sailor moon burger

Get ready to please your tastebuds by moonlight! As we get closer to the third season of Sailor Moon Crystal, a pop-up cafe in Tokyo’s Roppongi is introducing a burger that would make Usagi’s mouth water.

With a pink bun and an adorable design, the burger will be just one of the magical (and expensive at 1,600 yen / $14.34) items on the menu at the Chibiusa Cafe during it’s run from April 16th to June 19th. Even though it looks a little weird, it seems fit for a magical girl who needs to fuel up before kicking some butt.

YouTuber “Tito4re” recently decided to find out what would happen to a Big Mac if it was doused with molten copper. As you’ll see in the demonstration video after the jump, the burger actually put up a decent fight, especially considering that copper’s melting point is 1,984°F.

See how it turns out in the video below.

Canada’s Storm Crow Alehouse sounds like our kind of place. For one thing, they hired artist Noah Stacey to create a D&D-style burger alignment chart and character cards. Apparently, you can roll a burger there just like a character.

Clearly, this is right next to the Sistine Chapel in terms of a commission’s impact on art history.

Check out the completed cards below.

Did you need to know what a Whopper looks like when topped with $80 worth of pickles? I sure as hell didn’t. Yet here we are.

As part of their ongoing series of articles about ordering Whoppers with ridiculous quantities of adornments, RocketNews24 sent one of their Japan-based writers to a Burger King armed with a 10,000 yen bill – approximately $88-ish dollars – and told him to spend the bulk of that money on pickles. Pickles. Having it your way just went horribly wrong.

This burger is adorned with slightly over 700 individual pickles, and weighs in at 1.7 kg (just under four pounds).

An Australian burger joint called “Ze Pickle” has unveiled a new cheeseburger that brings together a hand-pressed wagyu beef patty, double jack cheese, and Nutella smoked bacon for a taste party held between two glazed donut buns.

Although the ingredient list should be enough to raise massive red flags for dieters and the health conscious, an additional warning is provided by the burger itself, which is appropriately named “Doughnutfukwitdis”.

After watching Master sushi chef Hiroyuki Terada perform a work of art in the video below, I’m convinced that a Big Mac is better in sushi form.

Master chef Terada transformed the burgers while still using all of the original ingredients—everything, from the buns to the patty make an appearance in the final dish.

Tacos are the pinnacle of food, so making anything into the shape of a taco makes it at least 50% more delicious. It’s a fact.

Knowing this, The Vulgar Chef made a taco “shell” of sorts using fries, and he filled the inside of the taco with hamburger. Here’s what he had to say about his creation:

The fries are prepared same as with the other fry recipes. I chop up some fries, mix them with shredded cheese, nuke them in the microwave for a good 30 seconds. Form the fries into the desires shape I need.

For the fry shells the desired shape is a circle. The easiest way to go about this is to lay the nuked cheesy fries out on a flat surface, and let cool slightly.
