The all-pork Hamburg
steak here is made
from premium Iwanaka
pork from Iwate
prefecture, and it's
remarkably tasty - a
revelation in how
good this simple
dish can get. The
ground meat is a mix
of four different
cuts - shoulder,
skirt steak, belly
and cheek - result-
ing in an ideal
balance of flavors
and fat content. The
patties are quite
thick and almost
lozenge-shaped,
cooked to a juicy
medium-rare consis-
tency with slight
grill-charring on
the surface.

Steaks are served
with a choice of
sauce - demi-glace,
yuzu-kosho or creamy
mustard - but the
meat is so juicy and
flavorful that the
sauce seems super-
fluous. At lunchtime
plain Hamburg steaks
start at Y1000,
while variations
such as black pep-
per, mozzarella,
pancetta and foie
gras run a bit more.
The mozzarella works
quite well as a
filling - the mild
cheese enhances the
flavor of the meat
without competing
with it.

Lunch comes with a
nice cup of cabbage-
tomato soup, and for
an extra Y380 the
set menu includes
salad and coffee or
tea. The salad
dressing incorpo-
rates various fruit
juices and the salad
itself has bits of
sausage hidden among
the greens. Coffee
comes with real
cream. Other drink
options include
fruit juices,
ginger-infused vine-
gar drink, and home-
made fruit wines.
