cake burger
By Bruce Eaton

A friend once defined Testicular Fortitude [Nice Family Guy reference there, Bruce. -Ed.] as “what sends men to war and what keeps women in the kitchen.” Well in actuality it is what keeps men from just sucking it up and eating delicious pink pastries, and flowery cakes. In order to overcome this problem, Mamido’s Burger in Shibuya, Japan makes burgers and fries that are actually tasty little snacks such as chocolate mousse or cream filled fried delights.

Designed to look like regular food, a burger from Mamido’s contains a “bun” of sponge cake, a “patty” of chocolate cream, “pickles” that are kiwi slices, and “mayo” that is whipped cream. The concept was born out of the need for men who couldn’t suck it up and go to a cake shop but still craved empty calories, man style. “Burgers” range from ?390-550 or $3.90-5.50 and “fries” being ?390.

A graduate of Colgate University, Bruce is one of the elite Henro or pilgrims who have completed the 900 mile 88 Temple Pilgrimage on the island of Shikoku, Japan by means of foot power, a feat (no pun intended.... ok maybe alittle) which is no laughing matter. He not only finished this task with a crippling leg injury but he has attained enlightenment according to the monks on Koyasan. Currently the 23 year old is living in San Antonio where he spends his time working as a Data Analyst but also trying to accomplish his next great challenge, drinking all 200 beers at the Flying Saucer. Having recently married his long time friend from college and seen as nuts for doing so, Bruce relishes his life and hot dogs generously. KANPAI!!
