If you view a burger’s bun as a needless, meatless waste of calories, a Tokyo restaurant called Shake Tree has your back with their new “Wild Out” burger.
The offering consists of two patties, cheese, fixings, a slice of tomato… and no bun. Despite this, the establishment does ask that patrons consume it like a normal burger, meaning it’s probably not for those who prefer clean eating.
The burger is currently available for 1,450 yen (US$12.34) and can also be modified with extra meat. Meat on meat on meat. [click to continue…]

It runs for A$16, and you can pick it up at any of Bar Luca’s three locations through this upcoming weekend. Oh, and as a nice treat, a golden ticket will pop up in a customer’s burger every day, entitling them to a fun mystery prize—a tour of an imaginative burger factory perhaps? [click to continue…]
For years, the fast food industry has used the burger drop effect in their advertising, showing each layer of a burger falling from the sky into calorie-rich perfection. Nowadays, CGI is the norm, but Director Steve Giralt still prefers to do things the old fashioned way. Surprisingly, it takes a lot of tech to do a proper burger drop.
His process involves a machine known as the “Precision Arduino Timing Relay Imaging Controller”, or “P.A.T.R.I.C.”, which performs precisely timed drops, and even produces ketchup and mustard collisions filmed in mouth-watering slow-mo.
Despite the use of such a complex piece of equipment, the shoot still required multiple takes and a fair bit of luck to get everything to fall into place as desired. Check out the behind the scenes video below. [click to continue…]
Pokémon has never been hotter, juicier and more delicious than it is at the Down N’ Out CBD pop-up in Sydney, Australia.
These adorable Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Charmander Pokéburgers are available in “limited supply” until Sunday, September 3rd for $15 ($11.44 US). Apparently, the flavors and ingredients are inspired by the character, and each burger is served with a “Pokéburg” card that explains what’s inside. I think it’s safe to say that the Charmander burger is going to be spicy. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

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.
