Japanese Burger Joint Sells Out Early After Trump Eats One of It’s Famous Cheddar Burgers
Munch’s Burger Shack in Shiba sold out early on Tuesday after President Trump and Prime Minister Abe selected the restaurant’s famous burgers to dine on after their golf outing.
The burger restaurant sold out of burgers by 2:30 in the afternoon!
Sora News 24 reported:
This Tokyo small business owner is at the centre of attention after his signature burger was selected to be served to the President.
In amongst all the speeches and outings held during Trump’s first visit to Japan as U.S. President, the one thing that stood out for many people was the fact that during his visit to a golf course with the Japanese Prime Minister, the two chose to eat hamburgers.
While some criticised the decision to shun the country’s UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage-listed traditional cuisine, others immediately started searching the Internet to find out where they could get their hands on a burger deemed worthy to be served to the U.S. President.
It turns out that the burger comes from a small Tokyo business owner who operates two burger stands in the city – Munch’s Burger Shack in Shiba (pictured below) and Munch’s Burger Stand at Toranomon…
…The burger that Trump dined on was the “Colby Jack Cheese Burger“, which costs a mere 1,200 yen (US$10.54). At this price, which is significantly less than a night out at Sukiyabashi Jiro where Obama dined during his Japan tour, anyone can afford to try a presidential meal, and that’s exactly what everybody did yesterday, when it was reported that the Toranomon outlet had completely sold out of burgers by 2:30 p.m.
