Wendy's Relaunches in Japan with Foie Gras-topped Burger
After leaving the Japanese market in 2009, Wendy's reopened in Japan yesterday with its first location in Omotesando, an upscale shopping district in Tokyo, and has plans to eventually open 700 locations in Japan, reports Businessweek. With the grand opening comes a new line of Japan Premium items, most prominently a foie gras-topped burger called the Foie Gras Rossini for ¥1280 (about $16.50).
Also on the Japan-only menu are the Avocado Wasabi Burger (¥820, about $10.50), the Truffle and Porcini Grilled Chicken Sandwich (¥920, about $12), and the Chili Burger (¥780, about $10).
