This ambitious American-style diner serves one of the few lamb burgers in town, and they do a terrific job. With minimal dressing on the burger, it's all about the very flavorful meat, beautifully grilled and lightly seasoned. If you prefer something beefier, the shop's flagship Kobe beef burger is also very impressive, as are the regular wagyu burger and the Balentien burger, which turns out to be a spicy Cajun chicken patty.

The menu is surprisingly extensive, with Tex Mex-style dishes (burritos, tacos, chili), spicy fare (Cajun roast chicken, jumbo shrimp with chile salsa), classic diner sandwiches (club house, NY steak), salads and soups. Most wines are priced Y2400-6000 per bottle, Y600 per glass, or you can opt for frozen margaritas or other cocktails. There's an English-language menu and take-out service. Budget around Y3000 for dinner with drinks, Y1200 for lunch.
