We’re used to eating Japanese rice cakes at New Year’s but this is our first time trying one on a hamburger.
With the New Year’s vacation period winding down, it’s back to work for most people in Japan. But while going back to the daily grind sounds like a bleak prospect after a few days of unadulterated loafing and/or shopping, there is at least one bright spot left on the calendar for January.
Burger Mania is a small hamburger chain with three locations in downtown Tokyo. Each month Burger Mania’s chefs think up a new creation that’s offered for a limited time only, and for January they decided to incorporate one of the quintessential New Year’s foods in Japan: the Japanese-style rice cake called mochi.
On the menu right now is the 1,390-yen (US$12) Mochi Bacon
