New to the menu at KFC in the Philippines is the Cheese Top Burger (50 pesos, about $1.18) featuring an "Original Recipe" chicken patty* with garlic parmesan dressing on a bun topped with a slice of melted cheese. Why put the cheese on the outside of the bun? ...Ah...um...[tumbleweed rolls by]...so the Internet will feel compelled to write about it?

* Yeah, yeah, that's not beef, but wackiness trumps beef-lessness in this case.

KFC in Malaysia also sells a cheese-topped bun breakfast sandwich, the Cheesy Egg Bun.

If anyone tries the burger, let us know if it deeply impacts your view of cheese placement in sandwiches.
