A pioneer of Tokyo's gourmet hamburger scene, this charmingly rustic little shop offers more than a dozen burgers to choose from, with variations like apple-mozzarella, mushroom-mozzarella and coriander-avocado-tomato guacamole. The hamburger meat is juicy, bacon (when you order it) is properly crisp, and relish and other condiments are restrained.

Burgers start at Y1069, and come with a side order of fries; other sides include deep-fried octopus, fried mozzarella and onion rings. They also offer seven sandwiches, including pastrami, tuna and tuna melt, all served on griddle-toasted wheat-germ walnut bread.
