Japanese burger chain MOS Burger hit the headlines last year over a racism row, but this time they are garnering attention from netizens due to their “tallest ever burger” the “Tokyo Tower Burger”, which has 14 layers, literally towering over other items on the menu.
While some netizens can’t wait to sink their teeth into this special edition burger, others think that such publicity stunts should be beneath MOS Burger.
Would you try a “Tokyo Tower Burger” if you were passing by their new Tokyo Tower branch?

MOS Burger’s “Tallest” Burger Ever? “Tokyo Tower” Burger Limited To Chain’s New “Tokyo Tower Branch”
A special menu including a “Tokyo Tower Burger” and a “Tokyo Tower Cheeseburger” is to be sold at the MOS Burger Tokyo Tower Branch (Minato Ward, Tokyo), which will open on March 13. Apparently the burger is based on the image of Tokyo Tower, and is “MOS Burger’s tallest hamburger ever”.
The Tokyo Tower Burger (800 yen; approx. $6.60) is a huge burger made with two beef patties, pastrami bacon, onion rings, tomato, and covered with chilli sauce. In total they say it has 14 layers. While the Tokyo Tower Cheeseburger (860 yen; approx. $7) is a burger with 15 layers, and has two added layers of sliced cheese.
The branch is located on the second-floor food court of Tokyo Tower Foot Town. The branch is open daily from 9:30am to 9:50pm.

Doesn’t suit MOS Burger to do stuff like this.
This is a pretty crude for MOS Burger (´-ω-`)
I wish that MOS Burger wouldn’t try to do things like MacDonalds and Lotteria [another Japanese burger chain].
Wow…this is just like Lotteria’s Pa— (self-restraint).
How the hell are you supposed to eat that.
Looks pretty good….but there are no MOS Burgers near me.
Come eat the Lucky Pierrot Futocho Burger ╭( ･ㅂ･)و ｸﾞｯ !
No Osaka Tsutenkaku burger yet? Really? No Osaka Tsutenkaku burger?
I’d never eat anything like that…
Unlike that gook feces wine company Lotteria, this burger is probably safe to eat and delicious, but it looks pretty difficult to eat (^_^;)
I wanna try this
Well it costs 800 yen, so it’s probably a pretty big.
Great job MOS, this looks great…but …I’m just some old dude with my Gasta [a popular brand of antacid] to hand, no confidence I’ll even finish it.
Great, I’ll eat this! (^^)v
I’d never finish this～ It’s kind of a strange thing for MOS Burger to do. What’s going on MOS～
Aww man, now I really want a MOS Burger ♪( ´▽｀) I’m gonna have one for my lunch tomorrow ♪
