Good lord. I feel my chest tightening just looking at that.

Who in their right mind (Sumo perhaps?) would eat this gut-bomb?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Sumo indeed. 30 years ago I might have tried but I'm not sure I could have finished it. Now it just looks mildly nauseating.

How do you eat that?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Urgh, my arteries are clanking just looking at the pic. And the calories, more than I eat in a day.

Sick, sick, sick.

As a recent article somewhere pointed out, though, these mega-menu items are just a lead-in--some people might try it once, but it's not going in anyone's regular lunch routine, and really, it's a psychological game. They want people to come in, see this ridiculous sandwich on the menu, and feel better about buying a double cheeseburger, which will look perfectly reasonable by comparison.

Still, the KFC "Double Down" chicken heart attack has been so successful they're keeping it on the menu.

I'm betting that the TV "Talento" will have to gorge themselves on this monstrosity during their shows. First it'll be a reward, then a punishment. Maybe only that one girl with the monster appetite will actually say its delicious beyond the first few bites.

Its getting harder and harder for Japanese people to say (with a straight face) that their diets are better than western diets.

But you have nothing to compare it to in the photo. It could 3 inches/7.5 centimeters high. So seriously, I wonder how high it is?

That just looks gross o.O

Beside the fact that it's the average woman's daily calorie intake in one gigantic tower of processed hooves and bollocks, how would one go about eating it? Is there a cocktail stick holding it together? Gonna need a large cakehole to deliver that baby to the arteries.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!

Everyone needs to lighten up! Needs more ketchup and bread is my only complaint. Don't be afraid to dream folks!

I'd try it

Ill run it

Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.

There seem to be some items missing. This burger is not completed!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I would expect more calories considering it has 10 beef patties and 10 slices of cheese. The beef patties must be pretty small. Anyways, on a budget, you could get this with a fry and drink set and be set for the whole day on about JP1200. That ain't bad folks.

Or, buy this and a loaf of bread (200 yen), then you can eat hamburgers all day long.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I bet they will still ask if I want fries with it

Needs more ketchup and bread is my only complaint

and some more people to help me eat it

Livin the dream!

To help sales, they should have a point card system: after 10 stamps you get a coupon for a free heart bypass.

990 yen. Thats good value. Buy yourself a bag of buns and a jar of pickles and u can make yourself enough burgers to take to work for a week.

masterkun05,

That plan reminds me of McDonald's old promo $0.29 hamburger Tuesdays and $0.39 cheeseburger Wednesdays. A friend and I used to buy 10 each (limit was 10). That was a whole lotta savings! ;)

Lotteria is the worse fast food I have ever have in my life. McDo is gourmet saveur compared to this! And I don't like McdDo!

Ah, Lotteria, you play me like an accordion.

The burger has 1,823 calories

Better order two, then.

What ???? Compare a Lotteria hanjukutamagoteriyaki burger with anything that Mac has to offer. Lotteria wins. No contest.

PS I wouldn't eat one of these monstrosities if you paid me a million yen.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Just throw away the buns and eat all the meat and the fake cheese. Well according to their site you can customize it by buying a 160 yen cheeseburger plus 100 yen for each extra patty.

is it breakfast, lunch and dinner after big party when next day you have a hangover?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The temptation is too big.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

i already had it. definitely worth the price, but the ketchup and pickles were only on the top patty. would've asked for more if i had known that....

0 ( +0 / -0 )

No thanks.

If someone will kindly put a fried egg and some maple syrup on that burger, then I'll try it.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

looks delicious

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Hmmm, just over 1800 calories, eh?

The average single hamburger patty is just over 50 calories, which makes the "meat" in this 10-patty behemoth total less than a third of the overall calories.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I would like to try it still.

this thing looks bigger than most japanese .

KyushuJoe: "PS I wouldn't eat one of these monstrosities if you paid me a million yen."

I would for a million yen, but anyone who thinks they can open their jaws and take a normal bite is nuts. All you would do is push the majority of the burger back while you fit a certain amount into your mouth. Basically, for a million yen I would simply do my best and go at it. Mind you, it would take about that much money for me to try and ingest such garbage, and that wouldn't NEARLY cover the Japanese Kenkou Hoken required to pay for the damages in my later years. haha.

Anyway, this is ridiculous, and 'unnecessary' is an understatement.

I dunno... go to Lotteria with 2 or 3 friends, order one and split it up. Good for a laugh, and you get to tell everyone, "I ordered a Tower Burger today."

patties: about 850 calories cheese: about 800 calories bread: about 200 calories

Now I know why people on the trains have doubled in size and smell offensive. Who said East is East and West is West.....this is not what I would call the best meeting point, but hello world.

This thing is way to big. It'd take me a week to get finished at the least

Quote daisan Just throw away the buns and eat all the meat
