ROPPONGI: Gori Gori Burger Taproom... OK! I had to go back for the 360 gram 1,800 yen burger!

The last time I was here I went for the 180 gram burger and it was goooood... but I think thats the best size as you can have too much of a good thing in the monster that is 360 grams.

Here we go! Gori Gori Burger 360 grams and the large Kyote Akebono Double IPA 8%!  How did I choose this IPA... simply for the alcohol content.

The chef! She was cooking the last time too.

Friendly chef with my request for a Hawaiian Shaka photo.

Photo with my Canon s120

Photo with the RX100... pulls more of a DSLR style and super sharp lens.  The bun looks sooooo tiny but its actually a good sized bun.

So many craft beers on Tap.

Bruno Mars on the BGM... gotta love it.

A few bites and this thing was a monster... There is a very unique distinctive flavor to the meat here. 

Only my 2nd visit and the staff is super friendly again.  If in Roppongi you gotta go enjoy the burgers, craft beers and sports on TV!  Great for lone diners, couples and friends of 4. Not the young crowd but mainly office salarymen on this Friday night.

SHIMBASHI STATION: Beard Papa... loved the chocolate Fondant Chocolate kinda brownies!

I'm a huuuuge brownie fan but there just don't exist in Japan. So the closest thing that comes to it are these Fondat Chocolat things. 

One?  Nah give me 2!

Later this night I microwaved the 2 kinda brownies... yum! They are quite heavy too.

TOKYO BIG SIGHT: Tokyo Marathon Expo... Lunch Packs! Japanese love these Yamazaki sandwiches..

I was at the Tokyo Marathon Expo to visit a clients booth and one of the shops selling items was Yamazaki Lunch Packs.  Lots of enclosed sandwiches with great fillings.

This one had pudding and almond.

Some lunch packs are sold exclusively in certain regions of Japan.  There are so many unique types of food regionally that they cater to the locals foodie needs.

Yakisoba and Mayo


Kobe beef corokke

Milk Chocolate with a cute panda picture... must be from Ueno Zoo.

This was a great one.. 4 types in one pack.

Added to this board...  

Clients booth! Launching OOFOS in Japan.

If you need an alternative to Rice Ball Onigiri's why not give the lunch packs a try?  They can be found in most supermarkets and convenient stores.
