My quest to sample Japan’s finest burgers continues with a trip to Burger’s Base in Yoyogi to try a Sasebo Burger!
The Sasebo Burger is derived from burgers introduced by the American Navy in the 1950’s, and is named after the city of Sasebo where it was first made. Over the years it’s been perfected and is famous across Japan.
At Burger’s Base, a set Sasebo Burger meal costs 780 yen and includes both fries and spicy lattice fries. We opted to sit outside – the cafe is right by a level crossing which is perfect for a train nerd like me!
When my burger arrived, I was impressed by how neat it was , all the ingredients perfectly stacked together unlike the delightfully messy Awajishima burgers There were alot of layers in this thing too, I counted:
- Burger with peppercorns
All those ingredients added up to make one tasty burger! The flavours were bloody fantastic. It’s very hard to compare it to Awajishima, which I think retains it’s crown, but this comes really close.
Why not go see for yourself! Burger’s Base is located about a minutes walk from Yoyogi station on the Yamanote Line. Enjoy!
