Yay for foodie posts! I won’t lie, I am such a foodie. I love food in almost all forms and I love trying new things. I don’t think I’m very picky, but I definitely appreciate eating something that is out of this world delicious, you know?
When I saw a Mos Burger in Japan, I knew I had to try it. I don’t like to eat out often in Japan because the prices are really expensive, so I made a rule for myself that I can only eat out at places where I can get something that is unique to Japan. So basically I banned myself from all American food, haha! I wouldn’t even let myself try the Indian restaurant near my apartment either, since I can easily get Indian food here.
Mos Burger is basically a Japanese McDonalds. Ew, right? Yes, it is still fast food, but I allowed myself this one foodie adventure because of their super delicious looking rice burgers. Hmm. One look at their advertisement drew me in. Instead of a bun, there are two patties of rice that have been grilled with some kind of soy sauce mixture. Carbilicious. 😉
I decided since I was splurging that I would go all out. The serving sizes in Japan aren’t as large as I’m used to seeing in the United States. Sometimes I forget how out of whack the portion sizes are in the US. I decided to get the fried seafood with vegetables burger. They describe it a mixture of shrimp and squid with onions, carrots, and edamame that is finished neatly with a special salty rich flavor of sesame. Definitely not going to see that in the United States. I also got a side of onion rings and a coffee shake.
The burger was pretty delicious, I won’t lie. The best part was the rice patty that had that caramelized soy sauce mixture of deliciousness. The seafood vegetable mixture in the middle tasted good too, not soggy or anything. On the website they said there is wasabi in the burger, but I didn’t taste any. That was good luck I guess because I don’t like wasabi.
The onion rings weren’t that great… they were soggy and limp which was sad! I thoroughly enjoyed my coffee shake however. 🙂
I really liked Mos Burger overall. They are inexpensive, and their food tastes pretty good. Their rice burgers are just out of this world amazing with that caramelization of the soy sauce!
Something that I loved about the dining area is that there is a smoking room. One of the things that I just can’t get used to in Japan is smoking in restaurants… it totally ruins my meal and I just can’t enjoy it because of the smell. I was excited to see that there was a separate enclosed space for smokers to eat so that I could enjoy my meal in peace!
So yummy! I biked myself home and was satisfied. Since it was a 20 minute bike ride, that has to cancel out some of those calories, right? 😉
Have you ever had a rice burger?
