Do you like fast food? If so, this news is for you. A Japanese fast food restaurant sells something special. It is a burger, but it is totally black.

The buns of the burger are black. There is some special coal in them that you can eat. Black pepper makes the meat black, and the sauce has squid ink in it.

What does this burger taste like? One eater said that it would be nice with rice.

Difficult words: bun (small round type of bread which is at the top and the bottom of a hamburger or a sandwich), squid (animal which lives in the see and looks like an octopus), ink (black thing which the squid lets out when it is scared).

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