Japanese Burger Kings Are Serving Up Black Burgers To Customers. Yum?

Starting September 19th, Japanese Burger Kings will be serving up Kuro Burgers to customers (which means “black burgers”). The meals are, you guessed it, totally black. The buns, cheese, wrappers and trays are all black. Thankfully, the ground beef (?) patty is going to remain meat-colored.

This doesn’t look delicious… but I’d have a hard time not ordering one.


There will be 2 burgers: the Kuro Pearl and the Kuro Diamond.

The Pearl will feature only the black bun and cheese. The Diamond will include other toppings. Both variants will have black ketchup.

The buns, cheese and ketchup are turned black with squid ink and bamboo charcoal.

The restaurant has used the black buns and ketchup before…

The dark cheese, however, is totally new.

(H/T Time)

Burger King Japan is only offering these burgers for a limited amount of time, so get them while they’re hot. (I hope they’re served hot.)
