Look at that horrid, gastronomic monstrosity pictured above.
LOOK AT IT.
Would you put that thing in your mouth?
I know I sure as hell wouldn’t, and I’m normally as open minded an eater as you’ll ever find.
But what Burger King in Japan is trying to pull with this stunt-burger (because let’s be honest, that’s exactly what it is) is just disgusting, and the foodie equivalent of trolling.
What this burger from your nightmares actually is, a “Kuro Burger” (“Black Burger”), with buns made from bamboo charcoal, an onion and garlic sauce made with squid ink, beef patties made with black pepper, and black cheese (BLACK CHEESE!) which is also apparently made with bamboo charcoal.
Seriously dude, Black Cheese.
I dunno what kind of price tag it would take for me to eat black cheese, but I know the bidding would have start at a minimum of $800.00
Still, if you’re more open minded than I am, and will be traveling to the land of the rising sun anytime soon, you’ll be able to purchase two types of these stunt-burgers: the Kuro (Black) Pearl and the Kuro (Black) Diamond with all the fixings.
The burgers go on sale later this month at all Burger King locations in Japan for a limited time only.
