Time To Bite Into Four Pounds Of Fun!
When you think of Tokyo, sushi comes to mind – and light, lots and lots of lights:
However, some of the wildest posts from Japan are about their burgers! Yes, Tokyo is in love with the hamburger, and they love to stack them as tall as their neon!
Meet the Giga Monster!
Teddy’s is a classic Hawaiian burger chain that has opened in Japan, and they announced their arrival with the “Giga Monster Burger”, which – as RocketNews24 points out – “combines their Classic, Original, Western, Avocado, and C.C. Rider burgers into a giant, towering monster that should please even the pickiest burger afficianado, weighing in at 1.8 kilograms (four pounds)!”
With so much burger comes a very big price: 6,800 yen/US$64 – yes, $64 for a burger, but I say that a 4-lb. masterpiece like this can be split at least five ways, so grab some friends and go to town!
Of course, the wacky minds at “RocketNews24” have the whole story here:
If this makes you hungry for Tokyo’s best burgers, why not go straight to the top of the “tower!”
The “Tokyo Burger Tower”!
Tokyo’s skyline just got tastier with a burger that celebrates height! See more of this culinary marvel here:
Or maybe you need something with less meat…but lots and lots of noodles!
The Towering “Noodle Burger!”
Tokyo’s wacky Lotteria restaurant offers this up, and incredible burger tower with noodles! Check it out here:
Finally, I have shared this unique burger with you before:
Yes, it’s a “foie gras” burger, and Wendy’s sells it in Japan…yes, WENDY’S!

And let me know if you are ready to say “Aloha!”

I got bloated just reading this, John. The biggest burger I have ever eaten is served in a local restaurant. This has two burgers in the bun, as well as pulled pork, barbecue sauce, bacon strips, and cheese. That’s it, and it is considered to be excessive. Mind you, it comes in at less that $15, and that’s including fries too.
I haven’t been inside a McDonald’s for at least ten years, and we no longer have Wendy’s in the UK.
I have never been to Japan, although I would like to see it if I can ever afford the trip. If I do ever get there, I definitely will not be trying a noodle burger!
Best wishes, Pete.
