The sandwiches are being promoted in honor of the burger chain Lotteria's 40th anniversary, according to Huffington Post
The burgers will cost 500 yen (approximately US$ 6.30).
Apparently, these burgers are everyday menu items, the difference is the price is a temporary one, a specially priced promotion to celebrate the chain's 40-year milestone. The beef burger, called the "Super Cheeseday" deal, was available yesterday, Oct. 16 and will return on Oct. 23. The fried shrimp stacked sandwich, the "Super Fryday", will be specially priced on Oct.19 and Oct. 26 , according to AHT Serious Eats
Normally the beef burger costs $11 to $17 and the shrimp burger, $7 to $10.
There seems to be a trend for multi-patty burgers in Japan. This past summer
, fast food chain Burger King offered a five-patty Whopper as a temporary menu item to celebrate its fifth anniversary in the country.
According to Kotaku
(via Rocket News 24
), the photos of the burgers in advertisements do not look like the real thing.
Although, Rocket News appears to be pretty familiar with the chain's "tower" burgers. Last year Lotteria made a 30-patty burger for them by special request, according to a post
dated last year.
