Ask many Aussies for burger ingredients and there will probably be very few who think of burdock. However, that’s the feature ingredient of the latest burger to hit the menu at MOS Burger.

The taproot of burdock plants is harvested to be eaten as a root vegetable. The vegetable is already very popular in Asia and is now achieving international recognition for its culinary use. Burdock is also advocated in the macrobiotic diet which has increased its popularity further. Importantly, burdock also gives the burger health benefits. That’s because burdock contains a fair amount of dietary fibre, calcium, potassium, amino acids, and is low in calories.

What makes this new burger even more special is that instead of being served between bread buns it is served with rice buns. The burger also contains seaweed and carrot cooked in the Kinpira style. That’s a traditional Japanese cooking style that is best summarised as “sauté and simmer”.

The new vegetable burger is already proving extremely popular, and not just with vegetarians either. The taste of the new burger appeals to a very large audience and the health benefits of the burdock has certainly appealed to Australians as well.

The Veggie Kinpira (Burdock and Carrot Rice Burger) is available now from MOS Burger stores in Australia.

The MOS Burger brand originated with its first store in Tokyo, Japan in 1972 and has grown to open over 1500 stores throughout Japan and South East Asia. MOS Burger opened its first Australian store in Brisbane earlier this year. Since then, MOS Burger has opened 2 more stores on the Gold Coast in South East Queensland.

The MOS Burger menu has proved very popular in Australia and plans are already in place for further store openings around the country. The company has also recently launched a MOS Club Facebook page offering users connected with the page opportunities to access special deals promoted only through that Facebook page.
