With a traditional Japanese twist on taste, rice burgers and seasonal specials, Mos Burger does not disappoint. The Special edition Tower burger is available only at the Iconic Tokyo Tower branch.
Yoshinoya is well known throughout Japan for tasty and low-priced food. With its origination back in 1899 in the fish market, Yoshinoya has kept up with the pace by which the world changed but the only thing they kept constant is their flavorsome and low-priced food. Gyudon literally means “beef bowl” filled with rice and topped with thinly sliced barbecued beef, onions dowsed in a special sauce. 480 yen can get you a regular sized bowl. There are multiple toppings available to make it taste according to customer’s preference and delicious marinated, grilled, eel is also available at Yoshinoya which costs 750 yen.

Desserts and shakes by Lotteria are also famous among the consumers. Trying a
Matsuzaka beef burger with the signature sauce is totally worth it. You will love every bite as you dig into
it. Once a year Lotteria offers their “stacked” burgers which are tower burgers of 3-5 or 10 beef patties. A true burger champion in it’s own right.
First kitchen is a Japanese based fast food restaurant chain and a subsidiary of world famous Wendy’s International.
