Mountain. Ocean. Sun

M.O.S. burger's a fast-food joint that originated in Japan and places second only to McDonald's in popularity.  The shot above documents my first taste of the fabled kinpira burger, which consists of a delicious mixture of veggies dressed in a sweeten soy sauce, sandwiched between two 'buns' of toasted rice.  Yep, rice.  Paired with scaldingly hot fries and a soda served in a glass, it was scrum-diddly-umtious.  So delicious in fact it inspired a homemade version that's become a regular in dinner line-up.  So if you ever find yourself looking at the bright red letters M.O.S. (they're all over Asia): give 'em try. 
p.s. - If you're skeptical of rice buns, never fear, they've got plain ol' buns too.  


  1. My last meal the first time I left Japan.

  2. That looks fantastic. Any chance you'd be willing to share the recipe for the homemade version?

  3. I second Ericka for the recipe ;-)

    Btw hi, I like your blogs.
    Greetings from Berlin!

  4. Hey Emmy! Your videos and blog posts are great! Hope to see more soon!

  5. I LOVED the rice burger! I'd always get them at the MOS burger in Hirakata!
