article imageMcDonald's Japan introduces squid-ink burger

By Michael Thomas     Sep 29, 2014 in Food
The world of strange food seemingly knows no bounds. Japan is a particular hotspot for weird concoctions, so the latest probably won't come as a surprise: a squid-ink burger.
Just a few weeks ago, Burger King Japan announced the imminent arrival of Kuro Burgers, regular hamburgers in jet-black buns. Not to be outdone, McDonald's Japan has unleashed the Squid Ink Burger.
Like Burger King's Kuro Burger, the Squid Ink Burger will feature two hamburgers sandwiched between two black (actually dark brown) buns. The colouring will be done with real squid ink — the black colouring of Burger King's buns come from bamboo charcoal. The McDonald's burgers will be topped with cheese and fried onions.
Rocket News 24 says that the Squid Ink Burger (Ikasumi in Japanese) will sell for 370 yen (about $3.40 US).
The burger is out just in time for the Halloween season, though it's currently only available in Tokyo at Seibu Shinjuku Station, Shinjuku Minamiguchi, and Shinjuku Oguard Nishi, with presumably more locations to follow.
This isn't the only "spooky" sandwich McDonald's Japan has announced. Its other offering is a chicken fillet topped with camembert, perhaps not the first thing that comes to mind when one imagines a special Halloween treat.
