Goro's Diner

The so-called "gourmet burger" phenomenon is getting bigger in


, and the number of the restaurants which serve high-quality hamburgers are growing each month. Since I have a blog about these kinds of "gourmet burgers", people often ask me which hamburger that I like the most. I myself don't like "ranking" the shops at all, because each person has a different taste of things. But when I get those questions, I answer to them, "Go to Goro's Diner near Gaiemmae", and see what happens.

This is a very small restaurant; it has only four tables, and seats about 10 people at the maximum. Because of this limited space, you might have to wait for a while to be seated during lunchtime hours. But the hamburgers they provide are very much worth the wait.

This time, I ordered a Bacon Cheeseburger, priced at 1,300 yen. The hamburger comes with French fries. After about 10 minutes, the hamburger is served.


Beautiful balance...


This is a HUGE hamburger. Jaw-dropping in many ways. This hamburger includes cheddar cheese, bacon, beef patty, grilled onion, tomato, lettuces, and tartar-sauce. There are many ways to eat this hamburger, but try to eat it using your hands and dig in. It might help to compress the hamburger by gently pushing it from the top, so that it will be easier to dig in.

After the first bite, you will be delighted by the rich and special flavor of this hamburger, thanks to the special blend of spices. The bacons are crisp, and the beef patty is juicy; you will appreciate the paper bag that comes with the hamburger. The vegetables are very fresh; you'll notice that the lettuce is very crisp. The homemade tartar-sauce at the bottom rounds out the flavoring for this hamburger. This hamburger is the complete package. Despite the huge volume, it will be easy to consume this hamburger because of the great taste.

By the way, the chef's name is not "Goro". "Goro" is the chef's son's name.
