Here’s a piece of good news because Japan’s famous hamburger joint MOS Burger has now landed in the Philippines and is slated to open its first store at Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas this February!

MOS Burger was founded by Satoshi Sakurada in 1972 in Tokyo, Japan. Since then, the burger chain has been offering hamburgers tailored to the Japanese palate.
For those who are wondering what the letters “MOS” mean, it simply stands for Mountain, to stand tall and firm as a mountain; Ocean, to have a heart as big and generous as the ocean; and Sun, to have an undying passion like the sun.
They are the second-largest fast-food franchise in Japan widely known for their signature rice burgers and for offering a menu healthier than other fast-food counterparts.
Currently, there are 1,300 MOS Burger stores in Japan and more than 300 stores overseas, with the goal to grow as a food service group that shares the deliciousness of Japan with the rest of the world.

With the help of Tokyo Coffee Holdings’s CEO Hubert Young, MOS Burger found its way to the country to delight burger-loving Filipinos with their classic food selections that are as delicious as it can be.
“We have heard that Filipinos are big burger lovers, and we are offering only the best for you,” said President of MOS Burger Philippines Araki Masahide. “Mr. Young told us that he had long wanted to bring MOS Burger to Manila since he first tasted our burgers back in Japan in the 1990s.”

MOS Burger’s signature burgers
In case you have no idea how deliciously good and healthy their burgers are, here are two of their signature burgers you must try once they open their first store in Manila: the MOS Cheeseburger and Yakiniku Rice Burger.
First up is the iconic MOS Cheeseburger, a Japanese-styled burger made with layers of fresh tomato slice, special meat sauce, cheese, and juicy tobikiri patties—which consists of ground pork and beef—that are all sandwiched between soft burger buns.
Meanwhile, their Yakiniku Rice Burger moves away from the traditional burgers we know. Instead of using bread for the buns, they use grilled rice bun to put together a revolutionary burger concoction. Now known all over the world, this rice burger actually originated from MOS Burger.

Their worldwide success underlies in believing the old Japanese proverb “ishoku dougen,” a philosophy meaning that medicine comes from the same source which maintains one’s health with a balanced diet.
All their products are proudly made from fresh ingredients from the lavish vegetables to the original sauce.

In the meantime, get your tummies ready to devour Japan’s famed burgers!
