Ebisu: Burgers
Blacows (Ebisu: Burgers)
Open 11am-11pm daily.
Sun: Open Sundays

Run by a Japanese meat company, Blacows specializes in gourmet burgers made from black Angus wagyu beef, coarsely ground and very juicy. A full-time butcher occupies one corner of the kitchen and prepares all the meat for the patties.

The signature dish here is the bacon cheese avocado burger; it uses colby and monterey jack cheeses, original tartar sauce and tomato-vegetable barbecue sauce, marinated onion cubes, and bacon made from premium Nadeshiko Pork. Buns are produced in collaboration with the Maison Kayser bakery.

Plain burgers start at Y1200, and the side-dish menu is more ambitious than most - wagyu meatballs with four cheeses, lobster bisque, voluminous Cobb salads. Wines are Y3800-4000 per bottle or Y750 per glass. Service is generally attentive, and the decor is tasteful. Take-out service is available.
