Thanks, FoodBeast, for introducing us to Burger King Japan’s new ninja burger, though I’m sure our friendship will not be a healthy one. What make’s this burger so ninja-y? Our guess is the black bun, colored by bamboo charcoal that is said to impart a smoky smell. What’s not so ninja-y about it? We don’t know, maybe the enormous slab of bacon that droops over the sides like a pancake too big for its plate. Man, this is almost as weird as that toilet bowl cafe. Here’s some other stuff we loved today:
