Lotteria's Mongolian Bowl Burger Provides Bites Filled with Carbohydrates

For a limited time, Japanese fast food chain Lotteria will be selling a rice burger it is calling the Mongolian Bowl Burger. The contents of the burger include sautéed cabbage, mayonnaise, a hot and sour sauce, protein and in place of the traditional burger patty, a bed of rice.

This special item was created in partnership with Moko Tanmen Nakamoto, known as a popular chain of Mongolian-style ramen restaurants in the Tokyo area. Since rice is a staple to the East just as burgers are a staple to the West, this fusion burger presents a worldly clash of cultures—and carbohydrates.

Although the new Mongolian Bowl Burger is proof enough, in the past Lotteria has proven itself a fearless brand by experimenting with combinations like chocolate and chicken, strawberries and steak, as well as a scoop of spaghetti on top of a patty.
