MOS Burger first opened in Tokyo, Japan in 1972, and has since become Japan's second-largest fast food franchise after McDonald's Japan. They've become known for their rice burgers, which feature a mix of rice, barley, and millet formed into a bun then stuffed with a patty of ground chicken and daikon. Fun fact: MOS means "Mountain, Ocean, Sun."

Currently, MOS Burger has branches in Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, and South Korea. According to Nikkei, they hope to open 50 branches in the Philippines by 2027.
