Tsukimi Burger 2013

The Tsukimi Burger at McDonald’s Japan is an autumn favourite of mine and I always look forward to it making its annual appearance on the menu. Autumn in Japan, which is September – November is the time to enjoy delicious autumn food, cooler weather and koyo ~ the colourful autumn leaves. The Tsukimi Burger is only available for a limited time during autumn in Japan and made its appearance back on the menu in 2013 on August 23rd.


The Tsukimi Burger (月見バーガー) or moon viewing burger is so called because the egg in the burger resembles the autumn full moon. The egg yolk represents the bright autumn full moon and the egg white the white sky. The Tsukimi Burger first made its appearance on the McDonald’s Japan menu in 1991 and has been a popular tradition every year. The burger contains a poached egg, beef patty, smokey bacon and a special sauce (ketchup mixed with Japanese mayonnaise).

This year in 2013 there is a new edition to the Tsukimi Burger Family, expanding the line-up to four different burgers. Joining the traditional Tsukimi Burger, Cheese Tsukimi Burger, and the Big Tsukimi Burger, will be the brand new Chicken Cheese Tsukimi Burger, which is available from September 6th.
