There is a hamburger steak restaurant in Ginza, Tokyo, where such "meat-eating girls" are lining up. The name of the restaurant is "Sukiya Burger". It is a popular restaurant that attracts more than 70,000 fans a year from all over Japan.
The restaurant is located on the first floor of a building on the corner of Sukiyabashi intersection, prominently marked by a large Fujiya sign. I arrived at the restaurant around 11:45 a.m., just before the peak lunch time. Even so, the restaurant was already full and two people were waiting outside. I was given a menu ahead of time, so I placed my order and waited to enter the restaurant.
The restaurant's hamburgers are served with a choice of toppings and sauces to combine with the hamburger steak. During lunch time, the basic hamburger steak is priced at 1,000 yen (tax included) and comes with a choice of toppings and sauces, a mini salad, and rice.
Looking at the toppings, one can see that the menu features foods that women like: avocado, tomato, cheese, and egg, with toppings ranging from 100 yen to 300 yen, including "double cheese," a combination of two kinds of cheese, and "tsukimi tomato," a combination of an egg and a tomato.
Five sauces are available: "Sukiya's Original Garlic Soy Sauce," "Deep Aged Demi-glace Sauce," "Japanese 'Skillful' Wasabi Soy Sauce," "Rich Rich Tomato Sauce," and "Fascinating Japanese Ponzu Sauce.
I ordered two kinds of hamburgers and waited for about five minutes before entering the restaurant. What is the taste that attracts women?
◆No.1 "Avocado Tomato + Wasabi Soy Sauce
For the first dish, I chose the "Avocado Tomato" topping, which is said to be very popular. It is served with wasabi and soy sauce.
On a sizzling hot griddle, a hamburger steak, sauce, and vegetables are served. On top of the colonized hamburger steak are thick slices of tomato, slices of avocado, grated daikon and wasabi. It is a very colorful dish to look at.
Viewed from the side, the hamburger steak is thick and firm. The tomato and avocado are stacked on top, making the hamburger vertically voluminous.
It is served with the accompanying sauce, but it is so hot that the sauce may splatter. Be careful and pour it on the hamburger.
Now, let's eat! I thought I was going to cut the hamburger into chunks, but then I realized that it was very difficult to cut the avocado, tomato, and hamburger all at once.
When I looked at the cross section of the hamburger, I found that it was thick, but not too thick. It is neither too thin nor too firm, and juices are flowing out from the moderate gaps. Looks delicious...!
When you put it in your mouth, the "juicy" meat was waiting for you! The texture of the meat is firm, but also juicy. It is juicy, but the aftertaste is not greasy. It is an excellent combination of meatiness and palatability.
The sauce has a hint of soy sauce, but it is not too thick and does not interfere with the taste of the hamburger.
◆The second item is the popular "Tsukimi Cheese + Tomato Sauce".
The second item is another popular topping, "Tsukimi Cheese" with tomato sauce. This item is served with the sauce.
A thick hamburger steak is topped with cheese, tomato sauce, and a fried egg. The sauce splashes on the griddle and the bright yellow yolk is very appetizing.
When you insert a knife, the well-cooked yolk flows out and mixes with the gravy and sauce. The tomato sauce was more refreshing than I had expected, with a strong acidity from the tomatoes. The richness of the yolk, the saltiness of the cheese, the acidity of the tomatoes, and the taste of the meat are a fusion of many different flavors, making it full of specialness.
In addition, I was surprised by the robust meaty flavor of the hamburger; even though it was a bit more richly seasoned in a Western style than the first item, the meaty flavor was still present. Perhaps the power of this hamburger is that it goes well with any sauce or topping.
The secret of its popularity lies in its meat.
The secret of this delicious hamburger is that only A5 and A4 grade beef is used, which is carefully selected by top-class wholesalers in the industry. The hamburgers are made with only the ingredients that the hamburger masters have fallen in love with.
The interior of the restaurant is brightly lit like a casual café, with handwritten wall boards and other touches of the "asobigokoro" spirit. It is not a large space, but it is a mysterious space that makes you feel at home.
The toppings that women like are lined up, and the size is easy for women to eat, making it an atmosphere that women can easily enter. And if it tastes so good, it is no wonder that female fans keep coming back. Repeat customers are also happy to be able to enjoy a variety of flavors by changing toppings and sauces.
While I was eating, there were always several groups of people waiting in line. And men, of course! However, either due to the competence of the wait staff or because you can enjoy a freshly grilled hamburger steak without waiting too long for your order, the turnover is not that bad. There is a possibility of waiting in line a little, but it seems likely that you will be able to enjoy a quick meal even during the busiest hours. I now have one more restaurant I want to go to.
