Tempura Rice Burger?!
There is a category called “Rice Burgers” at Mos Burger. As indicated by the name, the filling is sandwiched between two pan-fried/seared rice patties instead of buns, and is popular to the overseas visitors as being deceivingly delicious. The inside filling is deep fried vegetable or edamame (soy bean) tempura fritters, which are called “kakiage” in Japan. We suspect the secret to their success is this kakiage. So light and crunchy — there is nothing better!
The origin of the rice burger
In Japan there is a dish called “yaki-onigiri”, which is a seared onigiri (rice ball) with soy sauce on the surface (this creates a nice brown crunchy crust to the onigiri). It is the same principle as the senbei (Japanese rice) crackers. The rice burger was created in 1987, based on this yaki-onigiri concept.
