Here is a concept that I have found in Singapore but the this store is originally from Japan. It is too bad that I can not find a ADR or pink sheet symbol for the stock but it is listed on the Tokyo exchange.

Just from the little I have read Mos Burger might see it expanding into the USA at some point in time. So, you might eventually find a Mos Burger near you and get a real taste of Asia.

What attracted me to this store was the signs advertising a Rice Burger cooked Spicy Korean style. I might try one later today or tomorrow.

Here is more info on Mos Burger:


" MOS Burger (??????, Mosu baga?), (Japanese, "MOS" [mos??] or "Mountain Ocean Sun"), is a fast-food restaurant chain (fast-casual) that originated in Japan. It is now the second-largest fast-food franchise in Japan after McDonald's, and owns numerous overseas outlets over East Asia, including Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, and until 2005, Hawaii. It is also the name of the standard hamburger offered by the restaurant, being its first product when the restaurant was founded in 1972.

The publicly-traded company also runs 80^C stores, MOS's-C, Mother Leaf, Shanghalichiba, Mamedori, and Stefan Grill outlets. The company had 1327 stores in 2005, down from 1458 in 2001. One slogan used within its stores is "Japanese Fine Burger and Coffee".

The MOS Rice Burger uses a bun made of rice mixed with barley and millet.

Rice was first used as a bun in 1987, when the restaurant served the Tsukune Rice Burger, filled with ground chicken and daikon, and seasoned with soy sauce. The Tsukune Rice Burger is no longer on the menu in Japan.

The MOS Rice Burgers currently include the 'kaisen kakiage rice burger' (fresh seafood shrimp fritter rice burger), the 'kinpira rice burger' (fried burdock and carrot rice burger), and the 'buta shoga yaki rice burger' (grilled pork and ginger rice burger). There also used to be a 'yakiniku rice burger' (grilled strips of beef rice burger) (available in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan branches)."
