I did a review of “Eat at Seven” in January this year which features 7 of Japan’s best and trending specialized concept restaurants. I was running an errand in the area a few days ago when I realized that two of the restaurants have been replaced with new restaurants.
Nikunoki has been replaced by Burg Kitchen, a restaurant by Chef Karaoke that specializes in Japanese hamburg steak.
Burg Kitchen has basically retained Nikunoki’s original interior design, with wooden flooring and wooden tables and chairs. I like that the tables are widely-spaced, making it easy to navigate the restaurant without having to worry that my butt will topple over any tables or chairs.
Burg Kitchen offers a counter where you can enjoy free-flow of pickles, salad and desserts.
Besides the Original Burg and the deluxe version Cheese Burg, Burg Kitchen also offers 5 side dishes to complement your Hamburg Chicken Combo, Golden Curry with Homemade Croquet and Beef Meatball, Golden Curry with Spicy Fried Chicken, Crispy Chicken Wings with Original Spice Blend and Penne Meat Sauce Gratin.
I decided to go with the “Must Try” Cheese Burg [$19.80++] where 200g of quality Australian beef and wagyu fats are marinated in salt, pepper, miso, sautéed onions, breadcrumbs and milk. The seasoned hamburger is then slowly pan-fried and oven-baked to seal in its juice. You can choose from 7 sauces to go with your hamburger: Demi-Glace (Homemade, Premium), Teriyaki with Mayo, Teriyaki with Mayo and Wasabi, Teriyaki Sansyo Pepper, Ponzu Oroshi, Ponzu Garlic Ginger Oroshi and Ponzu Spicy Chilli. I went with the staff’s suggestion and chose Demi Glace and I think it’s a superb choice. The flavorful sauce goes perfectly with the juicy beef patty, highlighting the freshness and juiciness of the meat. The addition of the melted cheese adds a layer of creaminess to the already perfect dish.
