Last year, Wendy's left the Japanese burger chain market, then triumphantly returned, all in the same month. Their Japanese re-launch, marked by the release of their foie gras hamburger, must have been a success, as they are back with two more outrageous offerings: the Lobster Surf & Turf Burger and the Premium Caviar & Lobster sandwich.
Taking advantage of record lows on the lobster market, Wendy's is offering both of these luxurious sandwiches for ¥1,280 or approximately $16.28.
The Lobster & Caviar sandwich (on the left) includes both claw meat and lobster salad, topped with a mustardy mayonnaise and sprinkled with caviar. The Surf & Turf Burger is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a classic, square Wendy's burger topped with whole pieces of Canadian lobster. There is also an Ocean Premium Salad, which contains both whole lobster chunks and lobster salad, but will cost you a little more at ¥1,580 yen (about $20.10).
