While we Filipinos are not yet over Burger King’s plant-based burgers (did you know you can order a double patty plant-based burger in select stores?), Burger King Indonesia has pink burgers inspired by Japanese cherry blossom flowers also known as sakura.[READ: If you loved Burger King’s meat-less Whopper, here are other plant-based burgers to try]
In December, Burger King Indonesia released pink burgers as part of its Sakura collection that features three burgers—chicken, beef and double beef—alongside a glazed fried chicken dish called Sakura chicken.
Once you get over the eye-catching pink-colored bun, you will notice another homage to Japanese culture, this time its cuisine. All three burgers are glazed with a sweet and tangy yakiniku sauce, as in the famous Japanese grilling sauce. Paired with an unconventional stack of ingredients that include two kinds of cheese (American and mozzarella), pineapple (!) and fried onion to name a few, the burgers are not only an eye-candy but also a culinary delight.
Unfortunately, the novel fare is an Indonesian chain exclusive. The burgers are priced from 40,000 rupiahs (approximately P140) to 57,000 rupiah (approximately P200).
