Japanese black burger - level 2

Japanese black burger - level 2

30-09-2014 15:00

An international chain of fast food restaurants introduced something special in Japan. It is a burger, but it is completely black.

The buns of the burger have bamboo charcoal powder in them, the meat is darkened with black pepper, and the barbecue sauce has squid ink in it. Wow!

So, what does it taste like? One happy eater said that it would go well with rice.

Difficult words: chain (group of restaurants which is owned by the same company), introduce (to sell something for the first time), charcoal (special coal which is usually made from bamboo).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
