Make a genuine Whopper at home with Burger King’s Cooking Burger @Home delivery

9 Comments
By Jess, grape Japan

The current global pandemic is affecting all aspects of our lives, including our eating habits. Japan’s Burger King branches are sensibly limiting their opening hours in line with advice about social distancing, but to help keep the spirits of burger-lovers up high, they’ve announced a very special service.

For a limited time only, customers can order the key ingredients of a Burger King burger to be delivered to their home, allowing them to make their own authentic fast food treat without leaving the house.

The set includes Burger King’s own flame-grilled beef patties, which have been cooked using the chain restaurant’s unique broiler, and therefore are imbued with the authentic Burger King taste. Customers will also receive Burger King’s sesame buns to house whatever ingredients they choose to put in.

Speaking of which, the recipe for Burger King’s most famous creation, The Whopper, has also been made public and will be included with the Cooking Burger @Home order. You’ll have to provide your own vegetables and sauces, but once you do, you’ll have constructed your very own genuine Whopper at home.

The Cooking Burger @Home can be bought as a set of 2 (1,080 yen) or 4 (2,000 yen) from participating stores. This order is only available for delivery and not in-store, so stay at home safe and let the burger come to you!

But if you’d rather leave it to the professionals, Burger King have some sweet deals for those who just want to order a pre-made burger. Two of their classic eats, the Spicy Whopper Jr and the Quattro Cheese Whopper Jr are both currently buy-one-get-one-free when you order them as take out.

Although it’s tough to stay at home all the time, at least there’s still plenty of chances to get delicious food sent directly to your abode. Once you’ve finished off your homemade Whopper, maybe you could tuck into some limited-time-only, organic Hello Kitty doughnuts as dessert?

Key sentence.

I'm not a huge fan of Burger King, but if you are, don't be fooled. Your burger won't be the same. It needs some pimply 19 year-old to put it all together for you.

Last time I came back from Japan on JAL they gave us an assemble-it-yourself Mos Burger on the plane. I like Mos Burger much more than I like Burger King, but this was rubbish. Tasted nothing like what I'll gladly pay for in a Mos Burger store. Plus, I paid a full airfare and you expect me to make my own dinner?

Here here, BigYen, I travel to UK and Finland frequently and am always surprised at the DIY munch in a box (Breakfast and Lunch).

You can buy all the ingredients from your local supermarket/Aeon.

But, each to their own, plus at least Burger King are supporting the stay and home philosophy.

I actually like a whopper junior with cheese, but how do you make authentic sauce?

Make sure you start with old, frozen meat patties. Very important!!!

If the Simpsons is telling the truth, you leave the mayonnaise out in the sun.

I worked at BK in high school and I could make a great whopper. If you make it just as the meat exits the grill it is very good and fresh. However, nowadays it seems BK threw away their secret and just make burgers in advance and they taste like crap.

Disgusting

This is dumb. When people order delivery, they want the food ready to eat. How many people are gonna order an unassembled Whopper instead of one already made?

so stay at home safe and let the burger come to you!

Poor delivery staff can't stay at home safe! So unfair!

Disgusting

What's disgusting about it? The flame grilled beef? The sliced tomatoes or onions?

Jeez, I'd hate to hear what you'd say about a Big Mac :D
