Pizza Burger

19 Dec

I wrote a post about how, for many people in Japan, “Christmas dinner” = Kentucky Fried Chicken.

It’s been that way for years.

And I also wrote another post about how McDonalds in Japan is offering a special chicken meal set for Christmas this year in attempt to take some of the lucrative X-mas chicken-dinner market from Kentucky Fried Chicken of Japan.

Well, it seems that Burger King Japan has decided to jump on the bandwagon.

But rather than try to compete directly with Kentucky Fried Chicken (which would probably be a futile attempt since if Japanese people don’t prepare their own X-mas dinner they almost inevitably have chicken from KFC), Burger King Japan is offering a “NY Pizza Burger Set” as their holiday set.

The huge Pizza Burger (which meant to shared by six or so people) can be ordered 単品 (singularly, without the “set”) for ¥1,680. Or a single burger “slice” can be bought for ¥320.

But the entire “Holiday Set” can be purchased until 2010 December 30th for ¥2,980.

This set comes with one Pizza Burger (serves six), a salad, an order of “BK Chicken Tenders”, an order of “BK Cheese Bits”, and an order of onion rings.

      I think it’s probably not so bad if it’s shared by a group of five or six as it was meant to be, and not eaten by one person alone.

    The Burger Pizza is available in the US but only in the Times Square Whopper Bar. Clickhere for more info.

      >only in the Times Square

      So, I guess that’s why it’s called the “NY Pizza Burger“.

      Why is it only available in NYC, I wonder.

      (BTW, are you from NYC?)

        Apparently they thought this burger would be a fitting tribute to NYC, God only knows why!

        I’m actually from London but a friend of mine is in NYC for Christmas and has promised me a video review of this monstrosity for the blog when he returns.

    And here I thought you were referring to a burger with pizza topping on it (mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, pepperonis, etc). But a burger that’s the size and shape of a pizza? I’m honestly surprised that we don’t have that here in the states.

      If Burger King in the U.S. sold the “Pizza Burger”, would you try it?

    This looks like an interesting idea, but I’m a little skeptical at the taste. I’d try it if we had a BK in Sendai.

      I’m the other way around.
      I can easily go to Burger King here in Tokyo…but I think it’s too overpriced, so I never do.

      (BTW, I wrote a comment on your blog but it didn’t show.)
