Japanese fast food restaurant chain MOS Burger, whose acronym stands for “Mountain, Ocean, Sun”, has been known to live up to its nature-themed moniker with a number of healthy menu options that do away with the wheat patties, replacing them with grilled riceor even two halves of a giant tomato.
Now, the fast food chain is re-releasing their Natsumi series, which sees the company’s delicious burger fillings sandwiched between two mounds of crispy green lettuce.
The regular Yasai Burger, or “Vegetable Burger”, comes with a thick-sliced tomato, shredded lettuce, onions, a beef patty and a generous serving of tangy Thousand Island-style sauce, all sandwiched between two hamburger buns.
The Natsumi version, however, does away with the buns and the shredded lettuce, and ups the vegetable quota by placing two hefty mounds of lettuce on either side of the burger filling, which really adds to the healthy feel of the meal.
Despite the prominent flavour of lettuce, this still tastes remarkably like a burger, not a salad, due to the meat element and MOS Burger’s special Aurora Sauce. While the regular version weighs in at 342 kilocalories, the Natsumi serving contains only 207 kilocalories, however, making this a healthy choice that retains all the decadent flavours of the original.
Priced at 360 yen (US$3.30), the core burgers above form part of a seven-piece collection that includes fried pork cutlet, fish, prawn cutlet and plain chicken varieties which range in price from 320 to 390 yen. On sale until mid-September this year, be sure to enjoy the healthy burgers while you can!
