MOS Burger, Shanghai

Yes, it’s true, with no fanfare, promotion or online buzz, MOS Burger secretly opened here in Shanghai in the basement food court of the Apita mall in Gubei!

That’s how the name is translated into Chinese…

Their menu is a toned down version of the Japanese original, sadly and shockingly lacking the chicken burger…

Combos with fries and drink run about $5.50 US, which is pricier than McDonald’s or Burger King here…

I tried to order a Double MOS Cheeseburger as I always do in Japan, but was denied. No second patties allowed here in China…

The first thing I noticed about my burger was that the cheese here is yellow, not white, but that’s really the only difference I could find. The texture of the bun, consistency of the burger, chop of the onions, and most importantly, taste of the MOS chili, were all pretty much spot on compared to the original!

And in honor of their grand opening this week, you get a commemorative MOS Shanghai tote with every order…

I have a feeling these fine folks will be seeing a lot of me…

Now if only I can convince the manager to make me a double!
