McRice Burger walked, so MOS could run.

Anyone remember McDonald’s McRice Burger? Well, this famous Japanese burger joint is known for their own take on rice burgers and we’re excited to say that they’re coming to Metro Manila very soon.

MOS Burger

Established in 1972, MOS Burger has been serving up a variety of savory burgers and eats as the second-largest burger chain in Japan. Over the years, they’ve started expanding their franchise in other countries such as Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Korea, and Australia.

Fun fact: 'MOS' stands for Mountain, Ocean, Sea

Set to open by March 2020 (according to Nikkei Asian Review), we’ve been excited for almost a year now and the wait may finally be over. MOS Burger will be opening a two-day pop-up store in Robinsons Galleria by January 2020.

While the dates are yet to be announced, we know that MOS Burgers will be offering two of their menu favorites: the Yakiniku Burger and the Signature MOS Burger. Their Yakiniku Burger is made with thinly sliced and marinated beef yakiniku, topped with lettuce, and sandwiched between two grilled rice buns.

On the other hand, their Signature MOS Burger is made with regular bread buns, a beef patty, lettuce, and their special sauce.

We’re freaking out because this much-awaited burger joint is arriving sooner than we thought! For more information, check in soon. We’ll make sure to update you on the dates of MOS Burger’s two-day pop-up!
