An offshoot of the Village Vanguard novelty-gift chain, VV Diner has spawned a growing chain of its own, offering a reliable menu of reasonably priced gourmet burgers in comfortable settings. This particular branch, a few minutes from the waterfront LaLaPort shopping mall, features a bigger menu than most, with Toyosu-only offerings like grilled lamb chops, sirloin roast beef, and "Steak in a Pan."
There are also a dozen burger variations, including our favorite, the garlic chip-enhanced Pepper Wild Bacon Burger, and non-burger options like Cajun fried chicken, popcorn shrimp and an avocado taco rice platter. Drinks include London Pride and Pilsner Urquel by the bottle (Y890) as well as budget wines from Y480 per glass. Lunch is served until 2:30pm.
