Japan: Burger King is serving up Red Cheeseburger

Published: June 17, 2015

Japan: Burger King is serving up Red Cheeseburger, Remember last year’s black cheeseburger? This year, Burger King is serving up red cheeseburgers in Japan. That’s right, red. Why? Because these burgers are effing PISSED OFF.

Called the “Aka Burger” (“aka” or 赤 means “red”), it comes in two types: Aka Samurai Beef and Aka Samurai Chicken. (Yes, Burger King Japan calls the chicken sandwich a burger, too.)

Both are served on red buns and filled with red cheese and red tomatoes. The burgers are slathered in a spicy sauce made from chili peppers and chili paste. Burger King Japan is calling this an “ANGRY sauce” (their caps, not mine).

Going on sale July 3, the Aka Samurai Chicken is 540 yen (US$4.36), while the Aka Samurai Beef is more expensive at 690 yen ($5.57). I bet the beef burger is ticked off about that!
