Meet Fuku Burger's Sumo burger
Sometimes you just need to roll up your sleeves, raise your elbows in anticipation of the chin drip, and dig into a monster burger. Especially this month, National Hamburger Month.
To celebrate, Fuku Burger LA has launched the Sumo burger. It may not be stuffed into a traditional sumo mawashi, but the larger-than-life burger (the size of about six regular ones) is a formidable opponent for the biggest of appetites. During the month of May, Fuku Burger customers can "Sumo size" any burger on the menu. For $40, you can get your favorite burger sumo-sized to 2 1/2 pounds of meat, bun and all the fixings.
Don't want to shell out $40 for a burger? Complete the Sumo challenge and the burger is on them. If you can finish the entire burger in 20 minutes, it's free. You'll also receive a complimentary T-shirt and have a chance to win Fuku burgers for life.
1634 Cahuenga Blvd., Hollywood, (323) 464-3858
