Big burger

56 Comments

The bigger they are -- this humungous Akiburger has been drawing diners and media to Burger Cafe Asyl in Akihabara. The 1,890-yen monster stands 20 cm tall.

I like a good burger as much as anyone but that's plain ridiculous.

McDonald's will have to top that with a Mega-mega-mega Mac.

thats dumb, it actually looks like two burgers stacked on top of each other. Heres an idea, eat three burgers comfortably instead of dislocating your retarded jaw for trying to eat that thing.

Are Japanese people getting fatter? Because this trend of bigger is better food offerings is disgusting!

This looks utterly revolting. Whoever took the picture of this thing should be fired... if they work as a photographer, I mean. Anyway, take the top hamburger off the bottom one and it still looks utterly sick. Nah... I'll save my 2000 yen and make a number of better burgers myself (if I want to eat burgers, that is).

That would be Giga Mac ;]. I could not open my mouth enough to bite that thing. It's ginormous silly. How would ladies do to keep a lady-like appearance while eating that on a date? Just curious.

how the crap do you eat it?!

Ah yes, Japan, a land of contrasts. I thought the tiny burger from Freshness burger was a joke until I saw this. What are they trying to prove? Why would you make a burger that costs 20 bucks and is impossible to eat?

And, I have to agree it looks disgusting. It doesn't even have beetroot on it!

Oh, and BTW, that would be a Terra-Mac - Terrible!

its a burger...on top of another burger...how imaginative

This looks typical. If Chinese food uses just a little more oil than other cooking methods, the Japanese will bath their Chinese food in oil. If foie gras is fine dining in French cooking, the Japanese will slap it in everything and make it fast food(come on, who didn't see it at Denny's all last year??). How about carbonara pasta? Hope you like raw eggs(Mmmm, La Boheme style..., BLEH!) So big burgers are popular now? OK, lets just dump a whole bunch of burger related materials on top of eachother and make this monstrosity. Foreign food gets the worst treatment in this country. This is embarrassing, even us burger loving Americans wouldn't do something this stupid.

evil_robot,

You just can't bash the Japanese when it comes to their restauarants and the quality of food here. Have you ever seen a McDonalds in the UK ? Freshly cooked Macs are a rarity. Here you get it made in front of you every time.

Sorry but I just can't bash the Japanese about food quality.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

northlondon - I don't think so! Yes, the hamburgers are freshly fried somewhat. All put in a drawer by the assembly line and made up as ordered. If you want a really freshly cooked hamburger in Japan, rather here in Okinawa, you gotta get one from A&W.

capone is right. It's one burger on top of another burger. Doesn't even look oishisou...

The top bun looks delicious.

Very true, the food quality is the highest I've ever seen. However, that doesn't make it taste any better when they throw the most absurd ingredients together to make these juvenile imaginary dishes. This still looks like something a 5 year old would make. High quality ingredients or not.

Evil Robot, you are kidding right? You have never heard of the Krispy Kreme burger, or Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Pennsylvannia that is the home of the 15 pound burger?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I'm with Northlondon. The quality of food here in general is so much better than the states. Fresh ingredients freshly prepared especially at non fast food eateries. Anyway, I would scarf that down, looks like a match for Sassebo burger. The secret in eating that is to compact it and stuff it in your face. Must have burger now, can't resist

since the change in ownership of japantoday, I see great diversity in the photos presented in Pictures of the Day! I think the new owners emphasize on the good food more than on the naked women. That is good.

Some of the best burgers I've eaten required a knife and fork.

usaexpat... speak for yourself ! I'll take an angus beef burger over anything in Japan any day of the week ! And by a large, the food in American restaurants is awesome, fresh, generous portions, and most of all (unlike Japan) Affordable !!! Don't believe me, check out the $400 steak dinner menus plastered about in the michelin guide for Japan ! Ouch !

i've seen this monstrosity being eaten. shared by three skinny girls. they just dismantled it with knife and fork and spread it around to the three plates. i mean... what's the point if you're just going to take it apart to eat it anyway?

the burgers at that place aren't even that great... so there's no way i would want one of that size.

although my pals love the place... so, as always, taste is subjective.

Well, if you like burgers, give them a try sometime. Me, I can't usually get them 'cause my girlfriend's a vegetarian, which pretty much makes me a vegetarian. I do love the taste of a good burger. Mmm. You know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in France?

With such a ridiculous size, I wonder if it has toppled off the plate before it has reached the table.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Something like that would turn me sick. How anyone has a mouth that size to take a bite is beyond belief.

I will admit that about once every 6 or 8 months I have a hamburger, but I will obtain the ground round at a grocery store (some yrs ago I would point out the type of meat, at a meat store, & have it ground to in prior yrs I would take it home & grid it myself), then whatever else & basically it was a bit of something green like lettuce to radish to something like a fitting sauce . So easy to eat & not forcing my jaw to go beyond reason while the rest spills all over the place.

It could have. But I don't really see this too much of as a burger since theres that skewer sticking out of the top of the burger. So I'd say that it's more like a kabob. Hamburger Kabob... maybe a Kaburger or Hambob.

not that big...in fact, it's just two regular size (Japanese equivalent for ultra-huge mega hyper big size) stacked one on the top of the other, with a chopstick to keep the set together. It's really a feeble idea, despite the burger seems pretty good, as most of cooking in Japan.

This is stupid. It is stupid as a promotion. It is stupid as a meal. It is stupid to look at. Why would anyone order one of these. Anyone that buys into this is a fool.

This looks like two spunked-on burgers, a bit of onion, speared on a chopstick. I'll bite me nails rather than eat this bag o' cack.

I was going to say that they took two burgers, stacked them, and put some type of "sauce" over it. What gives with the sauce on top of something like this? It just does not look good.

Here in Okinawa, there is a Wendy's. They are the same, but obviously, the portions are smaller. Oh, and they tout the "Australian beef" logo all over their menu. Personally, a burger about once a month. I prefer soba for lunch.

My mistake, the "sauce" is oozing from the sides, not on top....

the burger as itself looks perfect, but the size is not. Anyway this is just a publicity thing. A group of girls would buy it and share it much as you would with a 10 scoop icecream or bucket of popcorn. http://g.pia.co.jp/shop/86121?view=menu
