There’s a tomato bun fad sweeping Japan right now, and it’s one I can fully support.
Whether you’re gluten-free, a carb nazi, or just generally not into bread you’ll be thrilled to know that one fast food joint in Japan is taking bun options to the next level with a half tomato bun option that’ll blow your celiac socks right off. Somewhere in heaven Dr. Atkins is smiling right now. I’d rather fill mine with a veggie patty, but seriously let’s just start turning tomatoes into sandwiches and making world peace.
Japanese fast food chain Mos Burger has built a reputation over the years for its healthy burger options. For those with an aversion to traditional wheat-based buns, Mos Burger offers versions made with grilled rice patties. And if you’re counting calories, they’ll simply wrap your filling in lettuce.
Now there’s an even more impressive option for health-conscious customers: a burger stuffed between two halves of a giant tomato. Available after 2:00pm from only one outlet in Japan.
Now, if you’re a crooked-minded parent like me, your mind probably went instantly to the idea of *lightbulb* now-I-can-do-this-for-my-kids. True, you can, but it’ll be messy. So I think the moral of the story is: always wear black, eat all sandwiches on tomatoes, and force your children to do the same.
Peace, love, and nightshades.
