Forget beef burgers, chicken burgers or even antelope burgers because Japanese food chain YO! Sushi is launching what may be the most bizarre fusion of East-meets-West cuisine yet.
From next week, you can buy a range of burgers - including chicken, salmon, prawn, tilapia or tofu - with the 'bun' being made of toasted Japanese rice, formed into a bap shape.
The £8 snack is served with gingery pickled 'daikon slaw' (a type of radish) in place of coleslaw, seaweed crackers for chips and 'misotchup' (ketchup made with miso).
Very rice: YO! Sushi are launching an £8 sushi burger. You can choose from chicken, salmon, prawn, tilapia or tofu - with the 'bun' made of rice
Speaking about its latest wacky innovation, the chain, which is famous for its hufe sushi menu, says: 'You won't find beef in our YO! Burger or a stodgy bap covered in grease.'
On offer is the Chicken Yo! Burger, a chicken thigh seasoned with teriyaki sauce and served on a bed of lettuce with red onion, mayonnaise and topped with diced pineapple and white sesame seeds.

A spokesman for YO! Sushi said: 'YO! Sushi has always offered customers a unique dining experience and we are thrilled to be able to offer our customers something entirely new, inspired by Japan and exclusive to our restaurants.
'Unlike other run-of-the-mill burgers, you won't find anything like the YO! Burger anywhere else in the UK.'
YO! Sushi was founded in 1997, and was the first to bring the concept of a Japanese 'kaiten' sushi bar that delivered food via a conveyor belt to the UK.
The sushi burger is also served in specialised restaurants in Australia and the U.S.
