The burger quest continues with this unique offering in Northern Hiroshima!
Located just outside Yokogawa Station, God Burger(ゴッドバーガー) is a small establishment in a relatively new building – ignore streetview, it looks like their old shop was torn down to make way for a restaurant, of which they have a spot next door. Inside, the decor is simple and there’s seating for around 8 people.
The menu consists of 16 burger types(plus 2 hot-dogs) and includes interesting options including Hawaiian, curry and beef demi. All burgers are available in three sizes, Regular, Medium and JUMBO! This is a burger joint pure and simple, no sides available except drinks… I did kind of like this though as it felt like they were focusing on their strength – damn fine burgers.
I opted for the Royal God Burger in medium(1,100 Yen). As I waited I could see it being prepared over the counter area, fresh mince was taken from a drawer and then carefully cooked and seasoned, it smelled fantastic. When it landed in front of me I was pretty glad I didn’t order the jumbo as the regular was massive, and very weighty, a lot of good quality meat! In the Royal God, there was:
- Shredded Cabbage
- Fried Egg
- Okonomi Sauce
First bite and I was sold, great tasting, well cooked burger and some unique local flavouring added by the shredded cabbage and Okonomi sauce. As mentioned before, it was huge, and found it a bit of a challenge to eat, I got there in the end though 🙂
I’d highly recommend God Burger, the choice is great, plus the infusing of local flavours makes it unique and fine addition to my list of Japanese Burger joints!
