Talk About A BIG MAC!
Yes, I know what you are thinking: where can I get one of these? As always, in Japan! But if you aren’t in the mood for a 50-patty cheeseburger, then try this instead!
Introducing “The Osaka Burger”!
Yes, the latest food craze from Japan uses one of their most iconic foods and gives it an American twist!

WAIT WAIT WAIT! WHAT’S A “OKONOMIYAKI”??????
OK, time to take a moment and explain what an “Okonomiyaki” is!
“Okonomiyaki” is, for the most part, a japanese pancake! The batter is made of flour, grated nagaimo (a type of yam), water or dashi, eggs and shredded cabbage, and usually contains other ingredients such as green onion, thin pork belly, octopus, squid, shrimp, vegetables, kimchi, mochi or cheese!
So they cook their “okonomiyaki” and form it into a bun! As for the burger, it’s a chicken patty, plus a fried egg with shiso leaf – and the whole thing topped with a VERY PINK plum sauce, which they call bainiku sauce.
How can anyone top this?
LOTTERIA TO THE RESCUE!
Of course, my favorite Japanese restaurant chain, Lotteria, comes to the rescue again with another of their wacky burger creations!
Lotteria has launched their own “okonomiyaki” burgers! As always, you have a choice of how you want to experience this unique fast food!
There are two different versions of Lotteria’s okonomiyaki burger that went on sale in Japan on August 19. The “hanjuku tamago” on the left includes a soft-boiled egg, while the “modern style” on the right comes with stir-fried noodles and a fried egg!
That’s right, they sure seem to love their stir-fried noodle burgers at Lotteria!
