    You have got to be kidding me! I can barely eat one! Sheesh! We’ll be going to see the lavender flowers in Hokkaido this summer.

      It does sound like an impossible feat to me too!
      Who would want to try to eat that many burgers anyway?!

      Are you coming to visit Japan again? Great!
      Have you been to Hokkaido before?

    I could NOT eat seven Whoppers in one day, let alone 30 minutes.

    I really enjoy these posts. I have a fascination with different promotions and menus at fast food chains overseas. It began when I went to Eastern Canada and had a “McLobster” for the first time. I wondered, “What else is there out there?” and I realized that there are all kinds of special burgers in different states, and different countries.

      I wouldn’t even try to eat that much fast food!
      I don’t even want the prize!

      I like the Whopper … but not that much!

      And … does Canada McDonalds have a “McLobster” ?

      Do Canadian McDonalds have a “Shamrock Shake” in March like they do in America?

        I remember Shamrock shakes when I was a kid, but I don’t recall seeing them recently. That could be just because I don’t go to McDonalds that often. They probably still have them.

        I loved the McLobster! They used to be only in eastern Canada and US. Now they have come to Ontario and I had several last summer!

        I know this is blasphemy to many people, but … I don’t like lobster so much.
        I wouldn’t order a McLobster sandwich.

        The closest that McDonalds in Japan has is the “Ebi (shrimp) Filet” sandwich. I don’t order that one either.

        We don’t have that, but I would try it!

        Do you enjoy seafood in general? I would think you’re in heaven for seafood in Japan!


      • tokyo5 June 9, 2014 at 1:34 am #

        I know it’s not there. It’s one of the many “only-in-Japan” items, like the Teriyaki Burger.

        I do like seafood. I love Japanese food!
        I’m not a picky eater. I will eat lobster and shrimp … but not one of my favorites.

        Ah I understand. I enjoy sushi. But I am sure what is served here would not be considered very good but standards there. I would go to Japan and enjoy sushi every day, if I could!

      Is sushi expensive in Canada?

      There is high-end, expensive sushi here…but sushi “fast-food” places have many pieces that are two for ¥100 (US$1) or so. It’s cheap…but still delicious!


      • mikeladano June 10, 2014 at 6:17 am #

        Sushi is expensive, but not exceedingly so. Unfortunately there are now places here that are very cheap. All you can eat for $15. They just crank the food out like a factory. Hundreds of people ordering at once.

        All-you-can-eat sushi?

        Are other kinds of Japanese food popular there too?


      • mikeladano June 10, 2014 at 7:48 am #

        Probably not in the way that you would recognize it as Japanese. It would probably be best to say Japanese-Canadian.

        The reason I got interested in trying sushi in the first place was reading George Takei’s autobiography. He wrote about how he used to take all his old Star Trek castmates out to a sushi bar after the shoot. They were afraid to try, but they loved it quickly. I love fish, so I knew I had to try.

        > Japanese-Canadian.

        Yeah, I guess every country does that. In Japan, other countries’ cuisines are altered to Japanese tastes.

        >interested in trying sushi…(after) reading George Takei’s autobiography.

        Oh really? That’s interesting!
        How long ago was that?

        The first time that I tried most Japanese food, including sushi, was after I came here.
