“Hard Rock Cafe” is an American restaurant chain with three stores in the Tokyo metropolitan area and one in Osaka where you can enjoy a meal while listening to various kinds of music. Hard Rock Cafe is collaborating with the gourmet manga Today’s Burger, which is serialized in Weekly Manga Times and published by Houbunsha, and they are offering a special menu including the burger that appears in the series and is prepared in a Hard Rock Cafe style.
The second new item on the menu, called a “slopper” (a local special from Colorado, USA) will be on sale at Japanese locations from July 1st (Thursday) to August 31st (Tuesday). Prior to the “slopper” going on sale, we got to try it out for ourselves.
You can choose the spiciness of the sauce from 3 types, and the highest level “Very Hot” really starts to kick in as you dig into it!
The buns are soft, the beef is unseasoned to make the most of the natural taste, and the sweetness of the jalapeno just makes you even hungrier.
As the season gets hotter and hotter, we think a “slopper” with some alcohol would be good to try.
