Harakara's burgers are seasoned with only salt and pepper - no ketchup, mustard or sauces - so as not to mask the rich flavor of the aged beef. The most popular offering is the avocado cheeseburger (Y1280), with soft, ripe avocados and tangy cheddar balancing the meaty flavors of the juicy patty.
Other, less traditional burger choices include onion-shiso and pineapple, and there are numerous toppings like onions and pickles, although they tend to add up - bacon is an extra Y450. Set menus are a good deal though - Y350-400 gets you a drink plus a side dish to go with your burger. Everything on the menu is ready to take out.
Drinks include Yona Yona ale and Edelpils on tap, several Japanese wines (at Y2980/bottle), and fruit smoothies. The dining area is pleasantly decorated, and dogs are allowed in the outdoor terrace area. The shop is open all afternoon on weekends.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From Bento.com.
