  • McDonald’s Japan’s Gurakoro Burger Gets New Beef Stew Flavour

    27.November.2020 | FOOD

    The Gurakoro Burger is a seasonal item added to McDonald’s Japan’s winter menu every year. This year, they are releasing a new rich beef stew flavour on December 2 for a limited period.

    “Gurakoro” is a portmanteau of the Japanese words for “gratin” and “korokke,” the latter being the Japanese version of a French croquette. The Gurakoro burgers are crunchy on the outside and melty on the inside. They first appeared at McDonald’s Japan in 1993 and have returned every winter since, popular for its combination of the Gurakoro patty which is filled with creamy ebi, cabbage, a special korokke sauce, and an egg sauce, all squished between a toasted bun.

    Gurakoro Burger | ¥340

    The burger was created with a new recipe in 2019 that makes the flavour richer. The number of egg yolks used for the egg sauce was also increased, as was the spiciness of the korokke sauce.

    Beef Stew Gurakoro | ¥390

    This year, McDonald’s Japan is adding a beef stew sauce made with a combination of red wine and demiglace sauce. Added to this is mustard, creating a delicious flavour that goes hand in hand with the creamy gratin korokke.

  • Japan’s New Eel Burger is Made in Collaboration With the Theatrical Entertainment Sushi Bar Teruzushi

    03.July.2020 | FOOD

    Matsuya Foods, Gastroduce Japan, and Teruzushi have all joined hands to cook up the new “Eel Burger” which will be sold exclusively in Japan via Matsuya Food Court on Rakuten and Matsuya PayPay Mall starting from 8:00pm (JST) on July 4, 2020.

    Like all countries around the world, Japan’s food industry is suffering at the hands of the COVID-19 pandemic, with less customers dining in restaurants and eateries. That’s where Matsuya Foods comes in, which has launched an effort to collaborate with fellow restaurants to release exquisite dishes online. That begins with the “Eel Burger,” the first of many foods to come.

    Teruzushi is a sushi bar famous for its “theatrical entertainment” style of sushi serving which has earned it the spotlight in the news and on social media in Japan. They serve high-grade sushi which can have the average person easily spending over ¥30,000 during their visit.

     

    The restaurant, located in Fukuoka, is also famous for its “Unagi Burger,” which uses 220g of eel that is prepared in the kabayaki-style and wrapped around sushi rice. That itself is then wrapped in high quality domestic seaweed, resulting in a unique burger-style of sushi. The Eel Burger is an amalgamation of flavours and textures, with the crunchy seaweed complementing the soft eel.

  • Experience a Cherry Blossom Burger in Kyoto’s Famous Cherry Blossom Tourist Spot Arashiyama

    30.January.2020 | FOOD / SPOT

    This March, a restaurant in Arashiyama, Kyoto, that goes by the name CROSS Burger&Beer/Coffee, has announced it will release its new “Sakura Burger” (Cherry Blossom Burger) for the spring season.

    CROSS Burger&Beer/Coffee is a restaurant known for its burgers made with pitch black buns – a result from combining the mixture with bamboo charcoal – which are served on afternoon tea stands. All of their patties are made with 100% domestic wagyu, specifically hiragyu from the town of Tanba in Kyoto. To ensure the meat maintains its high quality texture, it is minced together with shoulder and shank, which also creates great flavour.

     

    The new cherry blossom burger uses a pink bun like that of the springtime flower. It has a chewy texture, and the surface is charred so that the outside is crispy and the inside soft. It also means that the meat juice permeates the bun better, and without making it go soggy. The patty is uses the same hiragyu meat, which is breaded and deep-fried to create what is known as menchi-katsu in Japanese. By doing this, it locks in the characteristic and unique flavour of the meat, as well its juice.

     

    Drizzled over the patty is a homemade tartar sauce with Kyoto-style chopped vegetables pickled in salt as the base. The restaurant chops up the vegetables randomly to leave texture in the sauce, which has a refreshing taste thanks to them, creating a flavour you’ll enjoy until the last bite. The burger is also stuffed with a sunny-side up egg and purple cabbage, the latter of which has a slightly bitter bite to it, resulting in an amalgamation of mouth-watering flavours.

    Order together with a cocktail or soda float to create an Instagrammable photo.

     

    If you’re heading to Japan to visit Kyoto this cherry blossom season, head to Arashiyama to enjoy the sights and a delicious Sakura Burger.

  • Stone Oven Cooked Burgers Served at New Ishigamaya GOKU BURGER in Omotesando

    28.July.2019 | FEATURES / FOOD

    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.
