Lobster Burgers! Wendy’s Caviar Burgers! Foie Gras Burgers! Tokyo Gets Burgered! McDonalds Goes For Olympics Gold!

Lobster Burger, anyone?

We’ve got some “breaking burger” news, thanks to our best friend, The Lobster…this is a burger that has been topped with a cooked lobster tail…

As you can see, we are not talking about a lobster patty – because you can make a burger out of anything, and great stores like Whole Foods sell salmon and tuna burger patties regularly…this burger adds Lobster to the mix, and it’s headed to Tokyo….

Tokyo Wendy’s!

Once again, Tokyo is the destination for this culinary effort – Thanks to the website “A Hamburger Daily”, here is a great look at what Wendy’s is offering our friends in Tokyo:

“To celebrate the opening of their second location in Japan in Roppongi Hills on August 17, Wendy’s Japan is offering three new Ocean Premium menu items:”

The Surf and Turf burger, a beef patty topped with lobster, lettuce, tomato, and red onion (¥1280, about $16.35)

The beef-less Lobster and Caviar “burger” made with whole lobster chunks, lobster salad made with a mustard mayonnaise, caviar, lettuce, tomato, and red onion (¥1280, about $16.35)

The Ocean Premium Salad made with whole lobster chunks and lobster salad, caviar, avocado, egg, cherry tomato, red onion, taramosalata, and a lettuce blend (¥1580, about $20.20)

And “A Hamburger Today” linked to a terrific website called “Eataku”, which had this great write-up of some additional new burgers in Japan – including the Wasabi Avocado Burger that I have pictured right above – and was in my previous post of the world’s ten best slider recipes.

Here is his writeup from last December: After leaving the Japanese market in 2009, Wendy’s reopened in Japan yesterday with its first location in Omotesando, an upscale shopping district in Tokyo, and has plans to eventually open 700 locations in Japan, reports Businessweek. With the grand opening comes a new line of Japan Premium items, most prominently a foie gras-topped burger called the Foie Gras Rossini for ¥1280 (about $16.50).

Also on the Japan-only menu are the Avocado Wasabi Burger (¥820, about $10.50), the Truffle and Porcini Grilled Chicken Sandwich (¥920, about $12), and the Chili Burger (¥780, about $10).

So there you have it, Wendy’s going after the burger market in Tokyo…I wonder how successful this will be? I will post updates as I find them!

McDonalds Goes For The Gold!

Oh, if you were wondering how the world’s largest McDonald’s was doing, here’s a look:

Those are LONG lines of people eating their way through the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. This picture is from McDonald’s 9,843-square-foot two-story restaurant, built just for the Olympic Games. McD’s had said it expected to serve 1.75 million meals during the games.

Well, word out now from the world’s largest McDonald’s, with 20-registers and a staff of 500 – they are doing just fine, thank you. In fact, the company says customer traffic is running at double its expectations.

Sounds like everyone is seeing Big Ben and eating Big Mac – a Gold medal performance indeed…
