Exorcise Your Hunger Demons

Movies Burgers

With the release of the Ghostbusters reboot in Japan on August 18, 2016, it’s time for fans of the Ghostbusters franchise to be absolutely spoiled. With a limited edition food menu from J.S. Burgers Cafe featuring tiny details fans will love, it's the perfect meal to scarf down before viewing the movie.

The “G.B. Burger” (¥1,580 [US$14.63]) promises to be a feast for the tastebuds, with a beef patty made from black olives and anchovy paste, slathered in a “Bloody Hot Ketchup” and topped with ghost-like mounds of cream. Inside is a special sauce made with ghost peppers, once recognized as the world’s hottest chili pepper by the Guinness World Records in 2007.

The burger isn’t the only dark-hued item in the lineup, though, with the Black Chili Chips (¥780 [US$7.60]) featuring the colors of the Ghostbusters logo, made with tomato puree, white cheddar sauce, and squid ink chili beans.

And for dessert there’s a sweet burger modeled on the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, the puffy white monster from the Ghostbusters franchise. The “Marshmallow Man Burger” (¥1,280 [US$12.48]) comes filled with yogurt ice cream, Oreo cookies, and “mega” marshmallows. Oozing out from the soft white buns is a raspberry and beetroot “Blood Berry Sauce.”

And to finish up, customers can murder a green ghost shake (¥780 [US$7.60]), with the green-colored hue of Slimer, the ghost from the series. The shake caters to Slimer’s love of junk food with green tea ice cream, chips, and mini burgers, while containing a more healthy apple and avocado smoothie filled with spinach and orange sauce.

Like the ghosts themselves, these items won’t be around for long—they’re available for a limited time at J.S. Burger cafes in Tokyo and Kanagawa from July 1 to September 30, 2016.
