This is the kind of "food diplomacy" that just drives people crazy sometimes, and I mean this in a good way. Not government-based, not forced-feeling…just a private endeavor gone global based upon people driving up demand via widespread information-sharing.
Everyone knows if you don't have In-n-Out around you, you're missing out on some good fast food. The Southern California-based burger chain just finished a pop-up shop in a Tokyo ZipZap restaurant space. The lines proved it was a popular event, but sadly it was only up for one day.
Some items from the Tokyo menu:
Double-Double: ¥700 ($8.46)
Cheeseburger: ¥400 ($4.83)
Hamburger: ¥300 ($3.63)
Potato chips: ¥100 ($1.21)
Medium drink: ¥100 ($1.21)
T-shirt: ¥800 ($9.67)
