President Trump arrives in Japan and sits down for a hamburger

AOL.com editors

It's quite well known that the president's eating habits consist of basic American foods: Pizza,Coca-Cola, potato chips and steak are some of the 71-year-old's favorites. 

“I love steak and hamburger and pasta and French fries, all of the things that we shouldn't be eating,” he even said on the campaign trail, according to Politico

But it's a diet he doesn't stray from even while on trips abroad. Back in May, when dining with officials in Saudi Arabia, the president requested a well-done steak -- with a side of ketchup -- instead of the country's traditional dish consisting of lamb and rice.

So when President Trump departed for a 12-day, 5-country tour of Asia on Saturday, many speculated how the picky eater would fair in places that offer some of the world's most eclectic cuisines.

The first stop on the tour was Japan, where Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe tweeted a photo of the two leaders getting “down to business" while munching on hamburgers. The burger was apparently from Munch's Burger Shack, a famous chain in Tokyo that makes all their burgers from Angus beef from the United States. 

Social media went after Trump, concerned with the cultural message his plate sends to the world. 

Some, however, were quick to point out just how *good* the burger chain actually is. 

After their meal, Trump and Abe enjoyed a game of golf with Japanese pro golfer Hideki Matsuyama, while reportedly discussing trade.

Later that day, Trump and Abe joined their wives at Ginza Ukai Tei, another chain, for steak, scallops and "chocolate sundaes." Bloomberg later reported that the parent company of the chain's stocks shot up more than seven percent after the presidential visit. 

Next up on the tour is Korea, followed by China, Vietnam and the Philippines.
