I donít take my burgers lightly. As a big fan of hardcore burgers and an unforgiving critic of cheap imitations, I am on a seemingly endless search for Japanís perfect burger for more than a decade. While Iím always hesitant to claim that I have found the Emperor of all burgers (because then I wouldnít have an excuse to go out eating burgers every weekend!!), I think I have come pretty damn close.
Cut see article for rest of it.
This is what caught my eye. HOME-MADE BACON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Smoked bacon (home made)
Fried egg (free range Ė damn! I didnít know they even existed in Japan!)
Cheese (fresh from the dairy farm)
Onion Rings (The sweetest onions in Awajishima)
I went for the first three and was more than satisfied. If you add in Onion rings, the burger ends up being 15+ cm tall and even if you can hold the thing, youíre gonna struggle fitting it in your mouth. That said, under no circumstances should you miss out on ordering the Onion Rings. (You can buy a side order for 150 yen.) Order a couple before you leave to nibble on the way home as they are hard to beat. Iím not 100% sure but maybe he sautťs the onion rings before he fries them. Let me know if you think you can work out the secret to their flavour.
So anyone have a chance to try this? What do you think? I think it sound BETTER than a hamburger from America! Free range eggs? Onion rings? Dude! *drool* The only time I really eat hamburgers (US style not hambagu japanese style) is during summer backyard bbqs so this kind of struck my interest. BTW the blog is a bit slow on updating but is really cool.
