Hidden in the industrial part of Seattle you’ll have to dodge the semi-trucks and potholes to get here but it is sooo worth it. The restaurant itself is pretty small. There’s three booths and three tables inside and two outside (for the three months of nice weather in Seattle). Also, parking is a little awkward (you’ll see when you get here) but at least there’s parking. As you get inside and see the crazy names of the burgers on the menu (such as the Ohayou Gozaimasu, Godzilla Attack, or the Ninja Delux) you might be a little confused. No worries though the service is super awesome here. They will help you make the right selection.
As for the food…I really love the Ohayou Gozaimasu (“Thank You Very Much” in Japanese) burger but this time I went for the Katsu Curry Burger. The Katsu Curry Burger was super crunchy from the pork katsu yet meshed well with the shredded cabbage, tomatoes, red onions, and pickles. The bun was nothing special but it did its job of holding all the veggies and meat together. It’s hard to compare but I love the Ohayou Gozaimasu burger because of the fried egg but as an over all sandwich I think I would prefer the Katsu Curry Burger. It’s definitely my favorite item here so far.
For most people all you would need to get here is one of their specialty katsu burgers and a drink for a very filling lunch or dinner. The burger (with the of the Ohayou Gozaimasu) and a drink would run you under $10. However, this trip here I really wanted to try the curry fries so my meal with the Katsu Curry Burger was just over $12 after tax. I really didn’t even touch the fries because the burger was so fricking filling…it’s ginormous. Although I really enjoy the french fries seasoned with Nori or curry it was the wasabi mayo dipping sauce that makes them so addicting.
