Classic American-style burgers are served here along with milkshakes in many flavors. Burgers are meaty and well seasoned, served with good quality bacon and cheese as options. Regular burgers come without distracting sauces, but with fresh-tasting tomatoes and lettuce dressed with mayonnaise that add a nice balance to the meat.
There are also teriyaki-burger choices if you're a fan of saucy burgers. Our only quibble, and it's a minor one, is that the beef used here might be just a bit leaner than we prefer. Fortunately this is balanced out by a good amount of bacon.
Burgers come with sides of cole slaw - tangy and refreshing, with a nice cumin flavoring - and a handful of fries, which have somehow achieved an optimal degree of saltiness and crunchiness. In addition to the two dozen or so burger varieties, Crane also serves well-stuffed sandwiches and side dishes like spicy chicken wings.
Crane's decor is tasteful modern diner style, with hot-pink walls, brushed-aluminum cabinets, white tile, colorful plastic-molded seats, and wood-patterned metal tables. The soundtrack is eclectic pop, ranging from seventies stadium rock to reggae. Burgers are priced from Y1000, with a single-patty bacon cheeseburger running Y1300.
