Wendy’s Launches Lobster And Caviar Burgers In Japan

Last year, Wendy’s both left the Japanese market – then relaunched the brand.  Their re-entry to the Japanese market was heralded by the release of a foie gras hamburger.  Things must have gone fairly well for the brand.  They’re now back with a new Lobster Surf & Turf Burger and the Premium Caviar & Lobster sandwich.

Apparently there’s been a record haul for lobster this season, which has drastically reduced prices on the meat.  Sensing a deal, Wendy’s is offering both of these sandwiches for ¥1,280 (which works out to a tad below $16.50.)Wendy's Launches Lobster And Caviar Burgers In Japan

The Lobster & Caviar sandwich (seen on the left in the photo above) includes both claw meat and lobster salad, topped with a mustard mayonnaise and sprinkled with caviar!  The Surf & Turf Burger is Wendy’s take on the classic dish: one of their square Wendy’s burgers topped with whole pieces of said cheap Canadian lobster.  On an Atkins kick?  There is also an Ocean Premium Salad, which contains both whole lobster chunks and lobster salad which will set you back ¥1,580 yen (a few pennies more than $20.)

The event was organised by Moscow caviar producers.  It brought together twelve contestants picked randomly from a hat.  Each were given 500g of caviar to eat in the shortest possible time.
