The Great Burger

Tokyo does have a bazillion or so great burger places, and this one – The Great Burger – is tucked away in the back alleys west of cat street, south of the Omotesando main street. Burgers are pretty decent, though Golden Brown is still my local benchmark...


Getting There

It's a few blocks south of the Meji Jingumae subwy station, along one of the many backalleys just to the west of cat street. And here's the Tabelog page.

Iroha, Harajuku – Carbonara Udon

I did another one of those combos today, spending a few hours at The Terminal and venturing out for a quick nearby lunch. This time around I ended up randomly opting for a small udon place – Iroha – in the Harajuku back street area just south of The Terminal. They had an interesting take on Italian/udon crossover dishes, I went with the carbonara udon option and... yummy. Insanely tasty. A new favorite.

Getting There

Find your way to the KDDI building in Harajuku, and walk past it in the general direction of Omotesando, following the extension of Takeshita Dori. Walk onto the first street appearing to your right and boom, there it is. has the details if you need them.

Golden Brown Burgers, Omotesando Hills

I spent most of yesterday at The Terminal in Harajuku, Tokyo, and wanted to grab a qucik lunch nearby. Always on the hunt for a decent avocado burger, Harajuku and Omotesando has a range of options available when you're craving for that particular vegetable sliced on top of a juicy, tasty, patty, and I went for the Golden Brown burger joint in Omotesando Hills. Great place.


Getting There

Just head for Omotesando Hills, make your way to the top floor, and you'll find Golden Brown up in the corner, sporting black windows and multi-colored christmas lights. Can't miss it.
