Burger King introduces Black Burger with Black Cheese

Burger King Black Burger

In a country renowned for its kooky culture and innovative food, it probably comes as no surprise that the Japanese Burger King menu might throw up a few surprises. But travelers journeying to Tokyo this September might be a little shocked to find out what is on offer.

The Kuro Burger, with “kuro” meaning “black” in Japanese, will be available for a limited period in what the company describes as a chance to “overturn the fast food industry.” What’s undeniably striking about these cheeseburgers is that they come with black buns, black cheese and black sauce and are effectively a “black burger.”

The bread is colored with bamboo charcoal and the ketchup – with onion and garlic in a soy sauce base – has squid ink added to it. Not to be outdone, the cheese slices also have bamboo charcoal and naturally the 115 gram beef patties are made with black pepper.

The more basic Kuro Pearl burger, including cheese and sauce, will be available for 480 yen ($4.49) while the Kuro Diamond, which includes more normal-looking lettuce, tomato, onion and mayonnaise, will cost 690 yen ($6.45).


In Japan, Burger King has a burger with black cheese – LA Times.
