Bravo, KFC Philippines: Cheese On Top of The Burger Bun. Bravo.

Conquering years of sandwich common sense
Years back, we'll look to June 27 as the day when fast food broke free of its physical constraints: It's now totally cool to melt cheese in illogical places. I know, I know this has nothing to do Texas. It's not even on the same continent (KFC Philippines), but this was just too good to pass up. I mean look at that thing. It's so precisely absurd. And there's so many questions!

1. How do you eat it without slicking your hands with translucent cheese shame?
2. Why does the description say "Original Recipe Chicken patty" when it is very, very clearly called the "Cheese Top Burger"
3. Where ELSE can we melt a slice of cheese? On the side of the drink cup? Maybe have cheese slices placed on our open palms, so when we eat the burger our hands naturally make a "grilled cheese"?

Over on Gawker, a commenter asks: "So it's basically the greasiest tartine ever invented?" It really looks that way. Bravo, KFC.

If they just went one more step in re-ordering that stack-o-fun, they could make a lot more money selling it as a deconstructed sandwich.  All the fancy-pants chefs are doing it, why not KFC?

Meat on meat...? Cheese on the  OUTSIDE of the bun?!?!?! What's next?!?!?! Condiment only concoctions? I'm frightened and confused and pretty sure there are no more philosophical constraints in the Fast Food Universe.

I'm a "melt some cheese on meat or a plate" traditionalist, but I think I just fucked up my iced tea cup trying  to get a slice of velveeta to stick to it after reading this. Hellyeahbro.

Streetwise/Cheese Top Burger?  I guess you eat if with a fork and knife?  What's next, a hamburger topped with a hot dog?  What is KFC's fascination with NOT utilizing a bun(s).  See, whats great about a sandwich (take note Filipino's and double downers),is that you can eat it with EASE-and it's not typically messy.... that's the magic.
