Craving an NY style gourmet burger in Tokyo? Then try Martiniburger in Kagurazaka. When you first pass by this restaurant you might mistake it for a bar because of the Absolut Vodka signs that are advertised on their large windows and the neon blue bar counter that shines through, but it’s actually a great burger joint.
We tried the “Brooklyn” and the “Lite Burger”. The Brooklyn comes with a generous 200-gram all-beef patty, mushrooms, gouda cheese and bearnaise sauce along with a side dish of your choice for 1350yen (we chose the simple salad as the side). The Lite Burger has a 150-gram all-beef patty with an english muffin as the bun(!) and a side dish of your choice for 900yen (I chose the creamed spinach as the side).
They were both delicious. The great part about the burgers here is that you’re not overwhelmed by all the toppings, you really taste the 100% beef that is oh so juicy. And the price? Not too shabby for all of this food. Oh, and if you’re not in the mood for a burger but are craving American food, they also have chicken sandwiches, lasagnas, pecan pies, and cocktails :)
