NERIMA: Viva La Burger... burgers only served during lunch. One of THE BEST Burger spots in Tokyo! Nails Nails.

I don't think any burger spot I have been to in Tokyo uses chopped up steak chunks mixed with ground beef.  Honestly its like having a steak burger... absolutely delicious!

Chef now has monthly specials... Mushroom and Gorgonzola cheese burger.

But I had a craving for Avocado.... so this was my choice.

Limited plate with a variety of items.

I noticed a jar of huge nails... asked why and he said that when burgers are served the top bun can sometimes fall off.  Thus the very American style nail... great idea!

French fries seasoned with garlic salt.

Wow... what a beauty!  I love The Great Burger and Hungry Heaven but this is just a style so unique.  Tender chunks of steak are held together by the ground beef.  Soooo juicy and guacamole flavor spot on.

From the 1st to the very last bite it was simply delicious.  If you are lucky enough to be in Nerima during lunch you MUST visit this spot.  You will definitely get cravings to go back.

EBISU: Le Parc Hong Kong Style Nouvelle Cuisine. 1,000 yen lunch set absolutely fantastic! Wow...

I don't eat Chinese food in Tokyo but when a client suggested this spot in Ebisu I had to go.  Its been around forever and I pass by frequently but never ventured inside.

Music on the BGM was French and the interior seemed very European.  Most of the lunch goers were women which is a good sign... they know the best restaurants.

Lots of selections in the 1,000 yen range.

Egg soup, pickles and tea arrives first.  Soup was very flavorful.

Then the dumplings, spare ribs with veggies and porridge arrived.  So much stuff for only 1,000 yen... they don't charge tax here.  Every item was just soooo delicious.

Yum Cha... Yum!

Lunch included tapioca... yum.

Our views overlooked a big playground.

If you want an amazing Chinese lunch you must go!!  I will surely be back if in the area during lunch time.

AOYAMA ICHOME: Seizan Sushi for another stunning lunch value! Plus super car spotting on my walk there. (Don't go on Mondays)

I love the value at this sushi spot... beautiful wooded interior with 3 sushi chefs.  All plus miso soup and seasoned seaweed for only 1,080 yen.  You gotta goooooo.

This Aventador S had a real spoiler like a SV... Could it be an Aventador S-SV?

Pearl white Aventador S... this was so nice.

At the gas station across from the Aoyama Cornes (Bentley and Lamborghini) Dealership always has alot of exotics...

Have no idea what this Aston Martin is.

UPDATE: I went again on the following Monday and the quality of the fish is noticeably not so good... I can only assume its because Tsukiji is closed on Sundays.... unfortunately I had a really bad stomach ache later that evening.  Oh the fish was not firm but more on the mushy side... old sushi?

Think I'm done with this place for the year.
