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.

    The moment I heard 'beef shipped in from the US', I already know this is just meh. Why would you ship beef in from the US when you have the best beef in the world in Japan?

    At McDonalds you can get a Big Mac and Quarter Pounder with cheese both for $5 bucks. Even if I was a Millionare I wouldn’t buy that one grand burger

    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
