any's burger

The other day, I was in the Tanimachi area and wanted to try a curry place, but they were!

Then I remembered there was a burger shop nearby, so I went to check them out instead.

Any's Burger is a tiny shop, they have counter seats as well some seats upstairs.

The owner had me sit at the counter and then showed me the menu.

Lots to choose from, but I went with the cheeseburger...700 yen.

And for 400 yen more, I added some fried potatoes and a drink (ginger ale)

He took out a glass mug or "jockey" as they call it here, put in some ice then took out a can of ginger ale from the fridge.

The place is full of knick knacks from America. The first photo is of the ceiling as I sat at the counter waiting for my lunch...

And then my burger came out...whoa?! It was so huge.

The owner then took out a folded piece of foil & magazine which he asked if I wanted to use to put my burger into so that I could hold it without getting messy. (In Japan they often wrap your sandwiches using napkins or wrappers so that you are able to hold them while eating)

But I didn't think I could get my mouth around that burger so I asked if I could have a knife and fork. He smiled and then took out some utensils for me.

Besides the bun there was lots of lettuce, a large slice of tomato, a grilled onion, cheese and the patty. He doesn't use any fillers just beef.

One thing in the sandwich that was unusual were these thin slices of green apple.

Other than that though, it was delicious. The patty was moist and the fries, though not crisp were tasty.

I told Satoshi about my lunch and he wants to go check it out, so we'll definitely be back.

A fair price for those portions. American burger-type joints keep popping up in Milan on a regular basis, but I can't get beyond the prices (hovering around €20 if you add dessert to your burger, fries and drink). A lot of cupcake-themed bakeries are growing in ranks too, and at 3€ a pop it's not something that I'd frequent often (especially since I can make my own cupcakes!). What really surprises me though are the growing numbers in vegetarian take-out/fast food shops. Thought I'd never see them here but apparently not everyone loves prosciutto and cheese!

vegetarian food shops are popping up around here too, Rowena. Lots of gluten-free too.

Thanks K :)

Hope you get a burger Paz :)

Take care everyone!

I don't think I could have taken a normal bite of that huge burger either, but it does look scrumptious!
