Burger King serves up Tokyo Teriyaki Tower Super One Pound Beef Burger

Lately in Japan, Burger King seems to be fully embracing the concept of "bigger is better." In addition to their tidy dining-thwarting Ugly Burger series, the chain has been routinely making twists on their One Pound Beef Burgers with spicy Strong Magma variations and even an all-you-can-eat challenge.

Big eaters can now add a tangy take on the monstrous burgers with Burger King Japan's latest release, the Tokyo Teriyaki Tower Super One Pound Beef Burger.

The stacked Tokyo Teriyaki Tower Super One Pound Beef Burger appears to take inspiration from the second tallest structure in Japan, the landmark Tokyo Tower. The new burger consists Burger King's signature flame-grilled 100% beef patties, layered with fresh onions, pickles, two slices of cheddar cheese, and mayonnaise, but this time each patty is slathered in a rich teriyaki sauce made from charred onions and red miso paste.

A limited number original celebratory stickers will be offered to customers who purchase the Tokyo Teriyaki Tower Super One Pound Beef Burger, so you can prove you ate the whole thing. The Tokyo Teriyaki Tower Super One Pound Beef Burger will be available at Burger King locations across Japan until July 8.

Only four patties?!? -

BK’s motto & theme song used to be: “Have it Your way.”

One Whopper seems enough, …

but corporate Japan likes exploit the younger Insta-gram crowd with their incessant need over each other for “one-upmanship”.

This might be popular in the US but i am not sure here the youth prefer to eat such a large amount of beef patties.

Still not big enough for a true tower burger. Unfortunately I am not a fan of teriyaki sauce.

I disagree, I think it’ll be a big hit with younger boys, that Samurai burger is always sold out, now if they don’t sell well, it’ll probably be because of that hefty price tag that comes with this burger.

Total calories for my day.

The “youth’ @Hiro 8am, don’t really eat many trendy *oversized* and *overhyped* products in Japan.

Many just creatively pose their Snap-chats and then, most of it goes into toward *overfilling* the *last of ANY public waste bins. -*

( - More reflections of an spoiled and *overly-indulged **’up & coming’ generation of mostly selfish *people? - )

Btw: Many in North America would and will ‘turn their noses away’ from corporate Japan’s penchant to overprice even the most simple of food offerings.

Support small business in Japan and abroad before they’re ALL gone!

Anyone remember?: “*Hold the pickles, Hold the lettuce. Special orders don’t upset Us**” . . . except* in Japan!

Sorry @Cameron 8:29am. The flummoxed counter staff would call the manager, who would in turn, confer with the ‘cook’ and the return to give you a simple “NG” if you tried to request “no teriyaki sauce”.

Question for @bass4Funk 8:55am: Just order 2 double Whoppers and “stack ‘em” is perhaps cheaper?

My arteries couldn't handle this one. A few years ago, perhaps. If you're below 30ish and in reasonable health, then go for it!

Gross. Obesity, anyone?

Ridiculous gimmick which encourages overeating.

Do u want 4 tasteless patties or 1 chunky tasty patty? Price is same.

Gluttony is never a virtue.

Surely this one burger has more than one day's recommended limits of fats, cholesterol, sodium, sugars (in the teriyaki sauce) and calories. It will generate a snake-like torpor as the entire body's blood supply heads to the stomach to carry away all the heavy molecules to deposit in the body's fat stores.

Disgusting. Pointless. Unethical. Unecological.

Looks like the triple bypass special. It has to be unhealthy to eat as a regular part of your diet.

My arteries feel clogged up from just looking at that photo....

I'll pass on that thanks. And I'll go ahead and enjoy a nice chicken salad or sushi instead.....

No thanks.
