Around the World: Burger King Japan - All-You-Can-Eat Whoppers

In celebration of their 5th year in Japan, Burger King Japan is once offering an all-you-can-eat Whopper buffet for a limited time at participating location. The promotion will run in two segments.

The first starts this Saturday, November 17 and runs through November 21, from 2pm to 11pm. According to RocketNews24, the deal is any customer who orders and finishes a Kuro ("black") Burger combo meal for 880 yen (~$10.83 US) will have 30 minutes to down as many Whoppers, fries, onion rings, and/or Cokes as he/she likes for no additional charge.

 It must be noted that the 30 minutes starts running when you purchase the combo.

The second segment runs November 22 through November 30, and offers the same, but with the purchase of any one of four Whopper combos with prices ranging from 880 yen to 1,110 yen ($10.83 to $13.67 US).

The logistics of how the deal works is as follows:

1. Order designated combo and receive a receipt with a time stamp.
2. Finish said combo and bring back the burger wrapper, empty cup, and paper bag to the register and receive a special buffet card.
3. Use buffet card and receipt to get Whoppers, fries, onion rings, and/or Cokes until the allotted 30-minute time limit runs out.

The 30 minute time limit makes it more of a competitive eating challenge rather than an enjoyable buffet. I don't think I could comfortably finish the combo in 30 minutes let alone eat more afterwards.

For those of you wondering, a Kuro Burger or "Black Burger" is a burger introduced by Burger King Japan back in late September and is most distinguished by its jet black bun. The bun contains bamboo charcoal to give it a distinct look and flavor. The burger also contains squid ink ketchup:


  1. When redeeming the card after shoveling in the required food I expect the workers to dawdle, to slooooowly make the free vittles and let it sit under the heat lights until they sloooowly get around to announcing your grub is ready.

  2. It's Japan; they don't dilly dally. :O Their customer service is prompt.

  3. Looks like an interesting kind of slaw on the black burger.

  4. Gotta' agree... ship pulled into Yokuska for repair and the Japanese yard workers at the naval base jumped out of the vehicle conveying them and they RAN down the pier and up the brow and commenced work quickly... and did the job properly.

    I hope the USA and Japan remain friendly... we can be of much use for each other if world events turn sour.
