Despite unveiling plant-based Whoppers recently, Burger King Japan seems fully committed to the meat train. Last year, they launched a new series of Strong Super One Pound Beef Burgers, which spawned a hearty all-you-can-eat One Pound Beef Burger challenge, and then an Extreme One Pound Beef Burger that did away with buns in favor of meat patties.
Now Burger King Japan is extending the appeal of its extra beefy series to spice lovers with an intimidatingly named Strong Magma Super One Pound Beef Burger.
The new spicy beef behemoth, which Burger King is calling the "spiciest wall of meat" in the lineup, is somewhat a fusion between the typical Super One Pound Beef Burger and the Spicy Yakuyoke Whopper released at the beginning of the year, which was a Whopper meant to ward off evil spirits and bad luck.
That's because the burger contains garlic flakes lathered in a sauce using spicy powder made by Gion Ajiko in Kyoto known as "Japan's spiciest golden pepper". The image below breaks down the strategic layering of a sesame bun, onions, an original hot sauce, four flame grilled beef patties, the aforementioned super spicy garlic flakes, two slices of cheddar cheese, and finally a bun that soaks up the meaty juices of the four beef patty stacks.
While those who want to tackle the super spicy meat stack head on are welcome to, Burger King Japan is offering to serve it cut in half for customers who order it that way. Those who take on the challenge will also be gifted a celebratory sticker.
The Strong Magma Super One Pound Beef Burger will be available at Burger King locations throughout Japan until March 26, priced at 1,380 yen on its own or 1,680 yen in a medium fry and drink combo.
