MOS has a burger perfect for our rice loving country… MOS Burger is a popular homegrown Japanese burger chain famed for its unique burgers. It is Japan’s second largest fast food franchise, just behind McDonald’s. Their menu is not like that of your typical standard fast food chain with hamburgers, fries and hot dogs. Instead of having a bun made of bread, you find one made of Japanese rice—the perfect synergy of East and West! While most of us might assume that it’s a burger joint owned by Mo’s, it’s actually an acronym for “Mountain, Ocean and Sun,” meaning as tall as the mountain, with a heart as big as the ocean and an undying passion like the sun. It currently has over 1,700 locations throughout Asia, Australia and you can find the first Philippine branch at Robinsons Galleria. Here’s what we loved at MOS… You can find MOS Burger near the ADB Avenue Entrance. MENU: Yakiniku Rice Burger (Php 169) MOS Burger is reinventing the American staple with its most unique offering—MOS Rice Burger that uses a bun made of Japanese rice. Although the bestseller is the cheeseburger in regular buns, I’m more of a rice lover so my favorite would definitely be the beef yakiniku or seafood tempura sandwiched between the signature rice patties. We loved the beef yakiniku burger. One look at it and you’ll know why. It comes with a generous serving of glistening marinated beef, sweet caramelized onions and very fresh lettuce sandwiched in a rice patty made of Japanese rice. Perfect for those who are too busy to dine in a resto. A must order. Seafood Tempura Rice Burger (Php 169) If you love shrimp tempura, then you won’t be able to resist this. It consists of delicious seafood tempura patty of shrimp, squid, onions, carrots and edamame; drizzled with kakiage sauce; and sandwiched between rice patties. Cheese Burger (Php 149) MOS’s #1 is the cheeseburger oozing with their special meat sauce. The sauce is mostly tomato based, an explosion of umami flavor. Besides the very juicy and tender patty, we also noticed the toasted chewy burger buns. A must order. Sweet Potato Fries (Php 120) For the fries, we loved the sweet orange kamote alternative. Wagyu Burger (Php 299) If you want something more beefy in taste, order the Wagyu Burger. It’s not like any regular Wagyu burger because you can really taste the Asian flavors in the sauce. Overall, though, I felt that the other ingredients combined together overpowered the beef. Teriyaki Chicken Burger (Php 189) For chicken lovers, you’ll love this Asian-inspired chicken burger filled with perfectly cooked juicy chicken breast sandwiched between soft pillowy buns. Make sure to evenly spread the mayo that compliments the teriyaki sauce. Did you notice that their burgers look exactly like how they are presented in the menu? Maybe it’s because the food here is prepared only when there’s an order, so you can expect a fresh batch every time. Find the first branch at Robinsons Galleria and watch out for their opening at SM Megamall, Robinsons Magnolia, Greenhills, Midtown and Eastwood in the coming months. Congratulations MOS Philippines!
