What Japan’s $1,000 Burger Tastes Like

  • Published on May 31, 2019
  • The Golden Giant burger, costing 100,000 JPY or close to $1,000 went on sale in Tokyo this year to celebrate the new Imperial era, "Reiwa". It's filled with wagyu beef, a 1 kilo patty, foie gras, lettuce, tomato, garlic saffron sauce, cheddar and in a gold leaf bun. But is it any good? We went to the Oak Door steakhouse at the Grand Hyatt in Tokyo's fashionable Roppongi Hills to find out.

    When there is a burger this large
    And so many strong tastes
    The truffle in the end is useless, and just a waste and a gimmick to justify the cost
    But honestly, I believe the cost is justified even without the trufffle

    I'm not very sure about the burger meat shipped from US, being a sign of quality. For one thing, EU does not import American meat, because of stringent food quality regulations.

    I hate overly large burgers. There is no balance of flavours in each bite you take.
    First Bite: a mouth full of bread
    Second Bite: a whole strip of steak that is impossible to chew comfortably
    Third Bite: a chunk of ground beef that is mostly flavourless due to the thick centre
    Forth Bite: a vegetarian salad bite with lettuce and tomato drenched in ketchup
