Japanese Chain Lotteria Rolls Out Potato Chip Burgers

The Japanese chain is topping its burgers with potato chips now

Lotteria's latest burger is topped with crunchy potato chips. 

The Japanese burger chain Lotteria has introduced some very surprising novelty burgers in the past. Once they released a freakishly huge burger with five patties on it. Then they took things in a completely different direction and released a burger with no patty at all. This time, though, Lotteria has been uncharacteristically restrained in its burger development, because the new product is a burger topped with potato chips, and it actually looks pretty great.

According to Rocket News 24, the new potato chip burgers are part of a collaboration between Lotteria and Japanese potato chip company Calbee. There are two options: a cheese potato chip burger with a beef patty, and a “salad chicken” potato chip burger that has lettuce and tomato and potato chips served on top of a chicken patty. Both look pretty amazing, and the crispy potato chips are designed to add a nice bit of crunch to the burgers' texture. The new burgers sell for $3.39 and $3.15, respectively, and will be available for a limited time.


In addition to the potato chip burgers, Lotteria and Calbee also came out with a line of seasoned French fry shakers. Those are bags of French fries that are intended to be shaken up to cover the fries with specialty seasonings like Consommé W Punch, Wasabi Beef,  Rich Salt, and Dark Nori Seaweed Salt.
