We’ve seen black buns, blue buns, and red buns. All bread buns! Screw that, let’s use tomatoes.

It’s called the “Tomami Burger” (“toma” as in “tomato” and “mi” or 実 as in “fruit” or “seed”).

According to Model Press, each burger uses one big fucking tomato.

The meal deal (pictured below) is 880 yen or US$7.11. The burger is only available in the Mos Burger in Tokyo’s Osaki and will be offered for a limited time only.

The actual burger, of course, can look slightly different from the publicity pics.

  • I like tomato a lot but that’s too much. Do they at least core the thing so there isn’t a glass of tomato juice just waiting to assault you…

  • Oh that’s clever for little sliders. Sort of how folk use lettuce leaves in place of burger buns.

  • It’s a lot healthier than using meat patties as the bun like America is wont to do. I’m also a fan of the Rice burgers that MOS Burgers does.

  • Surely this would be the best takeaway truth result ever?

    Bun(Tomato) looks just like the picture and they used proper lettuce!

  • Just going to point out that Mos Burger is possibly the worst burger chain in Japan.

    … if you want the best Japanese burgers, Freshness Burger is #1!

  • Its a healthy idea in theory, but would be extremely messy I would think. Think of all the tomato seeds/juice that would burst out when you took a bite. Not to mention it would get drippy and slippery with no bread to soak up the meat juices.

    What is in the glass? I can see the tomato, but not sure what else is in there…
