The “Hanjuku Tamago) 半熟タマゴ , which includes a soft-boiled egg, and The “Modern Style” モダン風 , which comes with stir fried noodles. The burgers will be available until late September in Japan. The Hanjuku Tamago costs 320 yen (USD$3.20) while the Modern Style costs 290 yen (USD$2.90).

The modern style seemed more like your traditional style Okonomiyaki for us, so Japan Australia gave it a try! We ordered a Modern Style Okonomiyaki Burger with small fries and small drink for 640 yen (USD$6.40).

How does it taste?
Not very good! Disappointing in fact!! The Okonomiyaki patty is doughy and lacks any Okonomiyaki flavour, while the fried noodles are soft and lack crunch (kari kari). Give us a regular Okonomiyaki any day of the week! It is a big disappointment after the high standards set by the recent Twin Burger.
If you are in Japan and want to try something different and unique then this might be the burger for you.
