KFC adds hash brown burgers to its menu in Japan

By Oona McGee, SoraNews24

KFC may be famous for its fried chicken, but it’s also well-known for its hash browns. So what if you could combine the two together for the ultimate indulgence? Well, that dream is now a reality, thanks to a new range coming to Japan called the Karihoku Hash Filet Burger.

Karihoku combines the Japanese words for “crunchy” and “soft and crumbly”, which perfectly describes the textural sensation of the new burgers. KFC says the hash browns have been specially made with fine-grained breadcrumbs heated at the lowest possible temperature to maintain a slightly chewy texture in the potatoes so they don’t crumble when combined with the other fillings.

There are three burgers to choose from, ranging from plain through to BBQ and spicy flavors, so let’s take a closer look at them below!.

▼ Karihoku Hash Fillet Burger BBQ (500 yen)


The BBQ sauce in this burger has been carefully crafted after trialing over 40 kinds of ingredients to create the perfect mix that complements both the fried chicken and potato.

▼ Karihoku Hash Fillet Burger Spicy (500 yen)


The salsa sauce in this burger helps to provide a sweet heat to the mix, with a cheddar cheese sauce serving to balance the overall taste while maintaining the spicy impact.

▼ Karihoku Hash Fillet Burger (700 yen)


This “forbidden burger” sandwiches the hash brown between two pieces of fried chicken, creating a heavy weight and “overwhelming presence” that promises to be the most filling option in the whole collection.

All the burgers went on sale at KFC stores nationwide from Wednesday , but they’re only being made in limited quantities, with sales ending as soon as they run out, so be sure to get in quick if you’d like to try them!

And just a few weeks ago the Japanese media was awash with the great potato shortage of 2023. Can't get them from overseas because reasons. And here we are with this. So much for the Great Tater Apocalypse.

These weird concoctions are me scratch my head at times. Incredibly unappealing mostly and they usually use far too much sweet sauce. If I choose to eat a meat dish of any sort I wish to be able to taste the meat not have it hidden by ghastly chemical sauces from a jar.

Which component should that be that causes a run out? Nothing in those burgers is rare or special or soon unavailable.
