The Internet is a black hole for strange, weird and wonderful things—especially when it comes to food. Rather than dive in yourself, let FWx do it for you. Here, five of the most absurd food items we saw this week.
The Everything Burger is Back:
Japan’s always insane Lotteria fast food chain is bringing back an all-time favorite. The With Everything Burger is topped with lettuce, cabbage, egg, cheese, a beef patty, a rib patty, a fried shrimp patty, a cheeseburger patty (which is separate from the burger patty and slice of cheese), pickles and a variety of sauces including ketchup, mayo and teriyaki. It’s huge. It’s messy. And it’s only in Japan. Boo. [Kotaku]
Baby Corn Burger:
The With Everything isn’t the only trendy burger in Japan right now. Wendy’s Japan is now offering the Pretzel Corn Cream Cheese Burger. It’s topped with baby corn, cream cheese and creamed corn. Finally, baby corn is good for something other than making stir-fries difficult to eat with chopsticks. [Brand Eating]
