Tasty golden french fries, regular or larger size

I thought porsupah might like a MOS Burger update. I tried the New Ebi Tatsuta Burger, I think; I forgot to write the name down. MOS Burger is a Japanese chain, with burgers of beef, chicken, shrimp, vegetables, or fish; served on bread or rice buns; side dishes from french fries to apple pie nuggets. It's a very Japanese place; your food's served in little baskets. Advertising suggests you ``charge yourself with joy,'' and I think they mean it. Apparently MOS stands for ``Mountain-Ocean-Sun,'' as they want an atmosphere ``as high and noble as a mountain; a heart as deep and wide as the oceans; affection as warm as the sun'', which a life of eating White Castle doesn't prepare you for. The menus try internationalizing often cryptic names with icons showing whether the essential ingredient is beef, chicken, fish, or vegetable. It's a bit pricier than Burger King, but more fun.

The Ebi Tatsua (?) burger has a rice bun, so is served in a foam wrapper. Bread buns seem to get wax paper. It's a prawn patty, which I didn't realize -- I don't care for prawn -- with seaweed, lettuce, and tempura sauce. It's about the volume of an Apple Mouse, but filling. The rice bun's soft and moist not a rice cake. I'd have liked a touch more tempura. It's not bad, but won't displace the teriyaki chicken burger or the Spicy Cheeseburger in my heart.

I got home and saw a New Dexter's Laboratory, which made me wonder if they made this season on purpose. It was dark, grim, and vaguely derivative of earlier seasons ... what happened?
