The good spot : Fellows, Tokyo, Japan

Why in hell would you want to have a burger in Japan?
Before answering, please consider how devoted the Japanese can be about mastering something and then think about their passion for everything connected to “old school” America.

I feel you’re getting a sense of where I’m heading.

Let me introduce you to the burger at Fellows, aka the best burger I’ve ever had (and considering that these days every Parisian restaurant has one on the menu, I can say that I’ve tasted quite a few). That’s what happens when you put that legendary Japanese dedication to good use! This is not cooking people, it’s high craftsmanship.

The restaurant in itself looks like a hybrid between a Japanese wooden house and a mountain cabin (yes, in central Tokyo, where anything and everything is possible) and puts that oh-so-nice touch on the Americana atmosphere. Bottles of Heinz ketchup cohabit with cute houseplants and mid-century modern posters, there is some cool jazz playing in the background and of course the restaurant is remarkably quiet  for a burger joint. All of that for less than $10?

Please open a branch in Paris so we can sell them for €20 and make it a crowded, noisy place with messy service!

That’s a damn good burger, Fellows you’re already on the top of my re-do list next time I’m in town.

Fellows, 3-8-11 Kita-Aoyama, Minato-ku Open Tue-Sat 11:30am-4pm & 6-10pm, Sun 11:30am-7pm, closed Mondays, Nearest subway station: Omotesando.
