    Mos Burger has jalepenos

    By thomas | December 20, 2008

    Jalepeno peppers are my favorite sandwich condiment.  Whenever I’d go to Subway back in Texas, I’d always have them pile on the jalepenos.  Sadly, Subway here in Japan doesn’t offer jalepenos (at least not any Subway near me!).  My import store doesn’t even sell them!  What can I do?

    Mos Burger.

    Not only is Mos Burger the best fast-food hamburger place around, not only does it have the best onion rings known to man, but they also have jalepenos!  If you order a Spicy Mos Burger, the “Spicy” you taste comes from chopped jalepenos that they stick in your burger sauce blap stuff.  Delicious! Even without the tilde.

    If you like jalepenos, go to Mos Burger.

    Do you have any fast food secrets?  Let me know in the comments!

      My Subway in Ebisu does have jalepenos. I order them every time! Though the staff calls them “hot peppers”.

      @eat wasabi: Mos Burger is awesome. My favorite fast food burger place in the whole world.. well, maybe after Burger King.

      @Mark Cooke: You know, I got an email from another reader who said the same thing. I was sure I didn’t see them at my Subway though. You guys have given me hope. I’m going to check again!

      Japanese subway stores call jalepenos as “hot pepper.” I don’t know why but every subway stores I know of has jalepenos a.k.a. “hot pepper”

      The best onion rings? Really? They’re good but much too salty for me.

      @shoM3000: Ok, that’s 3 people now who say Subway has jalepenos afterall. I feel like this is my lucky day! I’ll have to check it out. Thanks.

      @David: Of course onion ring tastiness is a matter of opinion, but I really like the light tempura-style batter. Too much salt can ruin them though, and I’ve had a few batches that were overcooked. But overall they are my personal favorite.

      Jalepeno sighting: Kaldi Coffee Farm (jarred, imported from Mexico). I’m not sure if all their shops have it in stock, by it might be worth a try. If I remember correctly, it was a rather large jar for only ¥298.

      If you think mos burger is good, you’ve forgotten what a real hamburger tastes like. Try Kua’aina burger. Mos Burger is not real beef, nor does it taste like a hamburger. Its a watered down version. You people are friggin idiots. I bet you think japanese chinese food is the best too.

      But you need to eat 3 Mos burgers to get filled up.

      You can buy jars of Jalepenos from Don Quiote in Roppongi, from the chain Yamaya, and from National Azabu. You can also buy REAL spicy chili peppers from the Korean supermarkets in Shin Okubo. You can buy dried chopped chili from Don Quiote and in Shin Okubo.

      Yup, I’m a man who likes his spice.

      Jalapenos are sold in most デパチカ。e.g. Tokyu Food show in shibuya, Lumine in shinjuku, etc. I get mine form a local supermarket that has a tiny imported foods section. Just look out for the tortillas and tacos and they should have jalapenos
