Japanese eateries are no stranger to bizarre fast food items, but this time the Mos Burger chain has truly outdone itself with a surprisingly healthy bread substitute on its burgers.

The Toma-mi Burger is made with a locally grown Japanese tomato and holds together a burger made from basil and mozzarella, drizzled with an oil and balsamic dressing—essentially, the creation is like an Italian Caprese salad in burger form. The catch is that health-conscious individuals only have the chance to enjoy this unusual burger after 2 pm at a single Mos Burger outlet in Tokyo.

Other examples of alternative burger buns include ones made from noodles, cereal or meat, but none of these are quite as healthy as this plant-based bread substitute.
