Buffalo Burger, Martini burger, Kagurazaka, Shinjuku, Tokyo

 The Classical New York Style Burger at Shinjuku, Tokyo
This burger shop was established by Eliot Bergman who was born and grew in New York. This burger shop is serving the modern but pure-blooded American style burger which was built the identity till 1950s, before the MacDonald chain had spread their territory, as the bread and beef pate were nicely selected. If you go to Sasebo which has the US Navy base, there are a lot of just old American style burger shops around the city.

The huge glass window signed the shop name “Martini burger” lead the beautiful sun shine into the shop on the sunny day. The owner, Eliot, was teaching English spoken in Upper east coast, to his staff. The furniture was simple but well selected for making the atmosphere of down town in New York. In the centre of the shop, there was the white and simple bar counter the owner leaned and observed the outside of the shop.

Mr. Bergman named a lot of style of burger after the area of New York City as Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn. I have ordered the Buffalo Burger with buffalo spicy sauce and gorgonzola sauce. The burger steak was made from 100% beef meats. In Japan, it is very difficult to find the 100% beef burger shop in these islands.

They also served the lovely selection of liquors or wines. The shop vodkas for Martini were Absolute including several flavours. We can have some Californian Wine from their selection.

The combination of Martini with burger reminds me the happy hour custom in the bars of 1990s in the United States. The customs had not developed in 21st century. This combination seems a little bit old – fashioned style in New York.
