Motto Motto’s burger innovations switch up casual dining chain’s menu

Casual dining chain Motto Motto continues to innovate with its menu, introducing Japanese-inspired burgers alongside its bowls of rice, ramen and curry.

With former Huxtaburger boss Matt Fickling now chief operations officer at Motto Motto, is it any wonder that burgers have made an appearance in this business?

This fresh take on a Japanese twist to the menu follows the brand’s ethos of innovating and mixing traditional and modern Japanese or Japanese-inspired dishes, to bring fine dining ingredients and quality to the world of fast, casual dining.

Matt said “Our chef-designed and Japanese inspired burgers include premium local ingredients backed by genuine food credentials – all for the same price of a standard at your local burger joint.

“We’re  excited to be launching this new product category to support our restaurants and support our  franchisees. ”

Motto Motto is a group of made-to-order premium-casual restaurants brought to life by William Liu, the owner of Australia’s most awarded Japanese restaurant, Sono.

Key to its offering is the selection of premium Australian ingredients and that continues with the new burger line-up.

On the menu are Aussie farmed Wagyu beef, sow stall-free pork for the Pork Katsu burger, a Lobster and Prawn croquette, and RSPCA-approved free-range chicken used in the Hot & Spicy Chicken Karaage.

On the side, Japanese-style sauces and accompaniments such as yuzu mayonnaise, sake pickles, and sweet/savoury tonkatsu sauce. 


To celebrate the menu innovation Motto Motto is celebrating International Cheeseburger Day on 18 September by giving away 100 premium 6+ marble score Wagyu Cheese burgers; there is also a two-for-one offer for those customers who miss the freebies. Burger enthusiasts can also enter to win a year of burgers on Motto Motto’s Facebook and Instagram.
