Yesterday, Mos Burger, the Japanese burger chain, released some new items for their famous rice burger series.
One of them surprised us a lot. The Sabamiso Rice Burger might look like a very new concept for those living overseas, but actually it's simple and old - it is just made from the favorite Japanese lunch combination: Makerel cooked in miso based broth with some fine strips of leek as a topping and white rice - and put into a sandwich.
It is Halloween in Japan!!
