KFC releases overflowing lobster fillet burger for winter in Japan

By grape Japan

KFC recently made a menu shift chicken sandwiches to burgers in Japan, overhauling their existing lineup, as well as adding some new fried chicken faces. The Colonel has now announced the first new burger since the change was made, and it's quite luxurious winter release. Hoping to provide a hot and hearty meal for the chilly season, KFC Japan will be releasing a new duo of Lobster Fillet Burgers and Lobster Cheese Fillet Burgers.

The Lobster Fillet Burger features thick crispy croquette filled with creamy lobster bisque that is then topped with stewed tomato sauce and sandwiched along with KFC's signature boneless fried chicken. KFC says the burger packs and overflowing lobster flavor that streams out after one bite. From the pictures, we definitely take their word for it.


Meanwhile the Lobster Cheese Fillet Burger serves up the same with the added bonus of cheddar cheese, which KFC makes for an even richer flavor combination.


The Lobster Fillet Burger is available for 480 yen on its own, but can also be purchased in a set with a medium drink and small fries for 840 yen, or a burger box that includes a medium drink, small fries, original chicken, and a biscuit for 1,040 yen.



Meanwhile, the Lobster Cheese Fillet Burger is available for 520 yen on its own, 870 yen in a set, and 1,070 yen in a burger box.



Both Lobster Fillet burgers are currently available at KFC locations throughout Japan for a limited time.

Had to do a double-take on misreading the last word.

I was hoping for a lobster tail on a bun a la lobster roll. This looks more like a Rolling Stones T-shirt. Oh! Someone already said that. Sry, FizzBit

I would expect a lobster fillet to at least look like lobster.

Lucky to get the smell of lobster.

Why is that burger licking its tongue at me?

There's so many levels of wrongness to unpackage in this article, but perhaps the end all and be all of it that doesn't make any sense - if you can't do what's supposed to be your core business right, then why switch into something that's completely outside of your area of expertise (i.e. lobster burgers)? Guess they had an epiphany and realized that after 70 years of frying greasy chicken, they've been in the wrong business the whole time.

Hmmm...the product seems ok but the product photography is quite unnatural and feels kind of gross.

It looks good so I tried it last week. Ordinary. No lobster flavor and not a vegetable in sight.

I much prefer the regular KFC chicken fillet burger which has at least has lettuce and mayo.
