All-you-can-eat Whoppers

26 Oct

Burger King in Japan has some new menu items…such as:

The "Steakhouse" burger

and some others new items on their menu:

But more surprising is the special campaign that Burger King Japan will be running from 2011 November 1st to 15th.
It’s the “B”iKing ワッパー おかわり自由 (“All-you-can-eat Whoppers”) special.

「バイキング」 ("Biking") is Japanese for "Smorgasbord"...and, when written as "B"iKing it looks like an abbreviation for "Burger King".

If you want to try the All-you-can-eat Whopper deal, you must go to a Burger King in Japan between November 1st and 15th (2011) and buy a Whopper set meal…then you can as many free Whoppers as you can eat within thirty minutes.

Do you like the Whopper? Will you be trying this deal?

If you’re in Japan and you want to eat pizza, have you ever gone to 「シェーキーズ」 (“Shakey’s“) restaurant?

In Japan, especially Tokyo, there are plenty of places to get pizza…but in Japan, pizza is quite expensive usually.
But at Shakey’s, they have a pretty good deal.

If you go to Shakey’s in Japan, you can order the All-You-Can-Eat Lunch, Dinner, or Holiday plan (depending on what day-of-the-week and what time of day it is.)

Lunch on a weekday is the cheapest, and dinner on a holiday or weekend is the most expensive.
But it’s still a good deal. The prices range from ¥850 to ¥1,180 and you can eat all of the thin-crust pizza (all pizza toppings are “chef’s choice”), salad, spaghetti, spicy fries, and beef curry that you want.

I haven’t eaten at Shakey’s in about five years, so I had forgotten about their All-You-Can-Eat deals…but I saw an ad for it today and I was surprised that they still have this deal—and for almost the same price.

In Tokyo, there are Shakey’s restaurants in 渋谷 (Shibuya), 原宿 (Harajuku), 表参道 (Omotesando), 新宿 (Shinjuku), 高田馬場 (Takadanobaba), 世田谷 (Setagaya), and 池袋 (Ikebukuro).

Are there Shakey’s Pizza restaurants where you live? Have you ever eaten there? Does Shakey’s have a similar All-You-Can-Eat campaign in your country?
Do you like Shakey’s food?
