Burger King Releases its first-ever “Buns-Free” Burger in Japan

This new release is like a double-patty burger with beef buns, or a vegetable burger with double-patty beef buns. Whatever way you choose to look at it, though, this limited-edition release is epic, as it’s said to be Burger King’s first-ever “buns-free” burger, and it packs a meaty punch with four flame-grilled 100-percent beef patties weighing in at 499 grams (1 pound) in total. According to Burger King, the Extreme One Pound Beef Burger contains two rich cheddar cheese slices, fresh lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, ketchup and seasonings. It’s said to overflow with delicious juices upon first bite, and is the ultimate burger for beef lovers, as you get to taste the meat directly on the tongue. To commemorate the release of their Extreme burger, the Maximum Super One Pound Beef Burger will be making a return for a limited time. Plus, customers who order an Extreme burger will be awarded with an original sticker to prove they had the mental and physical stamina to chomp their way through so much meat. Burgers will be on the menu for 14 days only, from 20 November to 3 December, and sold from 2:00 p.m. each day. The Extreme Super One Pound Beef Burger will be priced at 1,400 yen (US$13.48) on its own or at 1,700 yen for a set with a medium drink and French fries, while the Maximum Super One Pound Beef Burger will retail for 1,600 yen on its own and 1,900 yen for a set.
