You know, like, hamburgers with sushi in them. Yummy?

As pointed out by Otakomu and Entabe, Japanese sushi restaurant Sushiro is offering what it’s calling the “Saba Burger.”

“Saba” is mackerel, and the burger is filled with said fish, sushi vinegar rice, and shiso. So yeah, it’s shime-saba nigirizushi, or cured mackerel hand-pressed sushi, slapped between two buns and slathered with mayo-wasabi sauce.

That is not a burger. It’s a fish sandwich. Even McDonald’s doesn’t have the gall to call their Filet-o-Fish a Fishburger.
