Climb This “Tokyo Tower Burger!” Giant 14-Story Cheeseburgers! “What The Friday!?” Has The Recipe!

I Want The “Tokyo Tower Burger!”

I miss traveling. I miss trying unique food.

I miss the “Tokyo Tower Burger.”

“What The Friday?!?!?”

Yes, a big stacked burger is tough to beat…and if I could fly to Tokyo right now, I’d head directly to MOS Burger to see if they still sell the “Tokyo Tower Burger.”

MOS Burger is one of the largest fast-food chains in Japan – and they are incredibly inventive when it comes to their food – so a few years back, when they wanted to celebrate their new outlet in the 1,093-foot Tokyo Tower’s food court, they had to come up with a burger worth the title.

First, here’s the gorgeous Tokyo Tower:

1,093 feet tall with spectacular view of Tokyo surrounding it.

Their recipe to match up to it was this!

Climb All 14 Stories!

The Tokyo Tower Burger was 14 stories of greatness:

• Bun
• Lettuce
• Hot chili sauce
• Chopped onion
• Mayo
• Patty
• Very wide tomato slice
• Hot chili sauce
• Onion ring
• Ketchup
• More chopped onion
• Pastrami bacon
• Patty
• Bun

It reminded me that the best, most wildly stacked burger always seem to come from Japan!

Lotteria the burger with everything on it

Remember When Japan’s Lotteria Restaurant Chain Released The “Burger With Everything On It?”

Yes, that’s a true statement! This burger literally has everything on it! As they described it:

“The Burger with Everything on It has four patties: regular hamburger, cheeseburger, fried shrimp, and rib. More hearty deliciousness come from bacon, sliced cheese, and a soft-boiled egg. The towering burger also checks off the food pyramid’s vegetable section with lettuce, cabbage, tomato and onion. Finally, in keeping with the burger’s magnanimously inclusive attitude, the sauce is a mix of teriyaki, regular mayonnaise, spicy mayonnaise, tartar sauce, meat sauce, and ketchup!”

A “Fried Shrimp” Burger is heaven to me.

Of course, Lotteria wasn’t new to this “towering burger stack game”:

world's biggest burger stack Tokyo

Yes, Lotteria has always loved to stack a burger, and they love to let someone else do it as well.


So, they had “build a burger” that allowed you to create a massive burger tower in any way you wanted – and I wanted it like this:

And finally, there was the Tokyo “Tower To Heaven” that you had to see to believe:

When would it end? Apparently, NEVER.

Now, I love a burger that towers over me – who wouldn’t want to try and do battle with this?

That said, sometimes incredible flavor can come in what appears to be a small package…here’s an example of something I bit down on the last time I was in Tokyo:

Behold A “Wagyu Beef Burger!”

Yes, I tried one of the when my wife and I went to Tokyo a few years ago – and we also checked out the incredible Kapabashi district, where you can buy this as well:

Yes, it’s a plastic burger! Click here to see where I found it – and see the Wagyu Burger up close as well:

  1. Bring on the heartburn. This is burger heaven!


  2. Aren’t things always bigger in Texas? I’m sure somebody is going to try.


  3. What is your strategy for eating this? Do you topple it? Start at the top and take off layers piecemeal? Or do you you have a detachable jaw i never noticed? And what allows it to stY vertical when served… is there a vertical skewer? And if you took it to go would they use a wine bag? It is such a curiosity!

  5. This is one huge hamburger, John. The whole family could share it. I am also sick of quarantine life. Two people in my work circle died of Covid today. So scary.

    • Oh no, Robbie! So sorry to hear that terrible news…this horrible pandemic has turned all of our worlds upside down, and I’m trying to share something a bit more fun…but it’s tough when we are indeed all still living a quarantine life, and I live in a country where some really bad people have politicized this virus in the deadliest way…

  6. The Tokyo Tower is incredible. MOS Burger did well paying tribute with their big-ass burger. Move over McDonalds, you’ll need to dislocate your jaw to stand a chance of eating this bad boy.

    • Except I will say that you can replace all of the protein with whatever, vegan or vegetarian-friendly protein you like…although let’s be honest – that was not on my mind at all when I posted this! Thanks for the comment, love hearing from you!

  7. Amazing. Funny how they always try in Japan to me more authentic than the original, which may sometimes take things to new ‘heights’ 🙂

  8. You always do this to me two hours before dinnertime, when I’m hungry. Now I want one! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
