‘Healthy’ and ‘Burger’. Have you ever heard anybody to use these two English words (英単語) together in one sentence? I haven’t. Don’t get me wrong I like burgers a lot, but I try to eat them as little as possible. Luckily here in Japan the food options are so great that I rarely feel the need to have one.
But as of today I can say this English sentence (英文) : ‘I’ll have a healthy burger for my lunch today’. Actually, anybody in Japan can say that.
A very popular Japanese fast food chain Mos Burger is introducing Mos no Natsumi (モスの菜摘) series. It’s a series of burgers using big lettuce leaves instead of buns and it will be available until the end of September.
Smith’s Katsura (スミス英会話 桂) is on Golden Week Holiday and I’ll be doing some short trips around Kyoto with my family in coming days, so I’ll have plenty of opportunities to try some of these cool offerings from the ‘Mos no Natsumi’ menu:
– Beef patty with vegetables and aurora sauce (320 yen)
– Teriyaki chicken (320 yen)
– Fish (300 yen)
– Shrimp cake (350 yen)
– Pork cutlet (340 yen)
I hope it’s going to be a success and Mos will decide to continue selling this line so a ‘healthy burger’ won’t be an English oxymoron (英矛盾語法) anymore.
