People flocked to a small burger place in Tokyo after they discovered which hamburger United States President Donald Trump ate during his visit.

Instead of going for a classy and expensive meal, Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe and Trump got a couple of hamburgers made by a small business called Munch’s Burger, reports Nikkan Sports via SoraNews24.


The business only has two branches and both are located inside Tokyo’s Minato Ward, where foreign embassies are also situated.

Business owner and chef Yutaka Yanagisawa had been invited to the golf course where Trump and Abe stayed, to prepare for them his signature burgers. He used 100-percent American Angus beef patties. Trump shook his hand and complimented his burgers.

The U.S. President had the “Colby Jack Cheese Burger” which costs 1,200 yen or about P540. When curious Japanese found this out, a good number flocked to the Munch’s Burger Stand branch at Toranomon. By 2:30 p.m., the branch declared that they were completely sold out.

The staff related that their spot on television attracted more attention that they could handle. The Munch’s Burger Shack branch in Shiba had been closed on Nov. 6 so everyone went to the Toranomon store.

Thanks to the publicity, Munch’s Burger gained more fans who attested to the burger’s quality. It appears that Munch’s also do deliveries, according to Instagram user @joxar14k. “Occasional hamburger office delivery. A luxurious lunch.” Alfred Bayle/JB
