You Will Need All 10 Fingers to Challenge These American Style Burgers
Burgers are becoming a big sensation in Japan. In the country’s current burger boom, some very unique burgers have been whipped up. From the atmosphere to the wallpaper, at TEN FINGERS BURGER in Sangenjaya, you will feel like you are in an American Diner.
If that isn’t enough to excite you, then the menu sure will. The burgers come in three different sizes: 10 Fingers, 8 Fingers and 6 Fingers to represent how many fingers you will need to hold the burger.
We all love a filling burger, but TEN FINGERS BURGER has taken this to a whole new level, commemorating their one-year anniversary in June with the release of a seriously huge burger which stirred a drooling sensation.
We recommend you demolish this burger with a cream soda to enjoy a wonderful flavour combination.
Inviting your friends to challenge this burger with you surely would be fun. And afterwards, you can all treat yourselves to this tempting and colourful banana split.
This burger is not only huge, but also delicious. Come challenge your 10 fingers (and possibly toes) to this impossibly massive burger!

Stone Oven Cooked Burgers Served at New Ishigamaya GOKU BURGER in Omotesando
Stone oven hamburger chain Ishigamaya Hamburg has opened its first global flagship branch Ishigamaya GOKU BURGER in Omotesando. The restaurant will be open for a limited-period of 2 years.
The classic hamburger is made from 100% ground beef, but at Ishigayama Hamburg they serve what is known as the “Hamburg Steak,” a mix of onions, spices, breadcrumbs, milk and other ingredients in the patty. It’s a popular dish in Japan alongside ramen and tonkatsu.
We visited Ishigamaya GOKU BURGER to see what a hamburger tastes like at a place that specialises in juicy, stone oven cooked Hamburg Steak.
The restaurant faces Omotesando Hills. It’s in the same building as Heiroku Sushi on the second floor. It’s very easy to spot with its big sign that reads “GOKU BURGER.”
The cosy burger joint has a casual atmosphere to it, lit up by its many variations of lamps.
From the big windows you can look down onto the the streets of Omotesando.
From your table you can see the large stone ovens which cook the famous Hamburg Steak. The smell is incredible.
I ordered the ¥1,450 Avocado Cheeseburger. It looks really cool with the knife stuck through it. You can choose from three different sauces to coat your burger: Original, Teriyaki and the Chef’s Special. I went with Original.
Time to tuck in! But before that, you’ve got to put on the gloves provided by the restaurant which come with every burger. So what explains why the sauce is served in a separate tray! The fact you get your own gloves is a great idea since it means it’ll keep your hands nice and clean so you won’t get grease all over them.。
The meat is succulent and extremely juicy. The burger juices and sauce blend together to make a really delicious flavour which make you just keep on dipping.
The hamburgers are made with red meat that has only a little fat content, with each burger formed by hand individually. And by cooking them in a stone oven it means the burger will cook evenly and all at once, sealing the flavours and juices in even more compared to infrared cookers. The buns too have an amazing taste and are nice and fluffy.
The potato fries are round rather than long and thin. They don’t go soggy and go amazingly with the sauce too.
The ¥1,580 BLT Burger looks tasty too, it’s packed full of colourful ingredients.
When you order the ¥1,380 Premium Hamburg Steak Regular Set they pour the sauce over for you, so I had to take a photo. The thick steak is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside so it maintains its juiciness.
If you love burgers then you’ll definitely want to pay a visit to Ishigamaya GOKU BURGER to try a burger like no other.

All twelve branches of the American-style hamburger restaurant J.S. BURGERS CAFE in Japan began holding the “Edo x American Fair” from April 17.
The fair takes Japanese food connected to Edo like sukiyaki, sushi and tempura and turns them into classic American-style food like hamburgers, sandwiches, popcorn shrimp and more.
“Sukiyaki” Bacon Cheeseburger: ¥1,380
The burger is made with an original patty of soft and melt-in-the-mouth sliced beef rib which is covered in a sweet and spicy soy sauce that brings out the full flavour of the beef. It’s topped with sauteed edible chrysanthemums, grilled spring onion and other ingredients that give it that sukiyaki appearance. But it also comes with smoked bacon and Gouda cheese to make it that collaboration between Japanese and American flavours.
Roast Beef “Sushi” Sandwich: ¥1,280
This sandwich takes soft and fatty roast beef and makes it look like meat-topped sushi. It’s covered in an aioli sauce that’s made with shredded dried plum and beefsteak as well as wasabi for a refreshing kick. Many flavours and textures can be enjoyed with this sandwich, from the beefsteak plant to the seaweed butter. It also comes with a side of fries seasoned with black sesame seed pepper.
“Tempura” Shrimp Fritter w/ Honey & Plum Dressing: ¥780
A delicious plate of fried shrimp in a special coating that comes with a mayo dip laced with sweet honey and sour shredded dried plum.
“Miso” Clam Chowder: ¥350
Clam chowder is an American classic, but this one is infused with secret Japanese flavours. The spring onions and ginger give it a flavoursome kick.

Niku to Wain Haneushi in Ropponmatsu
Niku to Wain Haneushi is famous for its Saga beef which is matured on the bone in house for no less than two months. In the evenings they serve delicious steak for dinner, but during the day they whip up a seriously gorgeous and very affordable lunch menu. Their menchi-katsu, which is a breaded and deep fried ground meat patty, is served hot and fresh and retains the succulent juices of the meat. The next thing I’m looking forward to trying is their beef tongue.

In the backstreets of Ropponmatsu is Shinobumeshi whose dishes provide a good balance of different foods. Their menu changes each day. The meal in the photo is their tender seafood katsu set.

Papparayray in Akasaka
Papparayray is popular for its rainbow coloured desserts which are piled with floral flowers and multicoloured fruits. My photo shows off their avocado and rolled oat salad. Rolled oats sit deliciously under the hearty bed of avocado. And the simple salt and olive oil seasoning is simply exquisite. No matter what vegetable is on your plate at this place, it’s sure to be fit for the gods.

Peter Luger Steak House Opens First Japanese Branch at Ebisu Garden Place
Hailing originally from Brooklyn, the 130-year-old Peter Luger Steak House has announced the opening of its first-ever Japanese branch which will welcome customers at Ebisu Garden Place in Tokyo this September with its 3-storeys of red brick.
Peter Luger is credited with spreading the mouth-watering wonder of dry-aged beef steak to the world which has made the restaurant’s name globally famous. The restaurant of course wields a Michelin Star and has been featured high on the Zagat Survey for over 30 years.
The secret behind Peter Luger’s signature ingredient
The restaurant’s beef fillet and New York strip are signature items on the menu, both of which are made from porterhouse steak. Their steak is also made from USDA Prime beef which is dry-aged by hand to intensify the flavour and aroma.
The porterhouse is placed directly onto the broiler and seasoned solely with salt. The steak is flipped only once during the broiling process. A knob of melted butter is added to a serving platter and the steak is sliced atop it. It’s then placed back into the broiler for a few minutes depending on the doneness requested by the customer. It’s this process that gives Peter Luger’s steaks their deliciousness.
Brooklyn red brick building and theatre decor
The Japanese branch takes inspiration from the Brooklyn restaurant with its red brick exterior.
The first floor is home to the bar where customers can enjoy food and cocktails. There’s also a takeout shop with gifts and other items.
The second floor is the spacious dining space which is home to Peter Ruger’s first-ever open kitchen. The third floor is another seating area with balcony-like seats so you can look out over the city.
There are seven private dining rooms of varying sizes for those looking a little more intimacy and privacy. The restaurant’s lighting was also designed by a New York designer.

Grand Opening: September 9, 2021
