Tokyo has an abundance of delicious burger joints. The Golden Brown Burger is one that gets tossed around as a popular spot in Tokyo. Our friend Arthur Chmielewski of HAVEN had included Golden Brown in his list of recommended restaurants in Tokyo. The Golden Brown Burger has a variety of burgers including beef, fish and vegetarian burgers with a range of toppings such as avocado, fried egg, and a selection of cheeses, nothing too revelational but still nice additions. There are also a few hot dogs, sandwiches, salads, side dishes and desserts to choose from. We ordered #2burgerz, the Avocado Hamburger with a fried egg and the Double Golden Brown Hamburger which comes with #2pattiez, smoked cheese, and bacon. We also ordered a side of meatballs which came smoothered in tomato sauce.
Between the two burgers, I preferred the avocado burger. I’m kind of (RIGHTFULLY SO) obsessed with fried eggs and avocado, so I guess that makes me a little biased. I love the creamy texture and butteriness the avocado added to the burger. The fried egg didn’t really add much considering the yolk wasn’t runny and didn’t burst in my mouth the way I expected it to. The beef patty itself was a little disappointing. It was flavorful but I had to spit out a few hard chunks of gristle as a I was eating my burger. The Golden Brown Hamburger was purdy tasty as well with a nice smoky flavor with melted smoked cheese and delicious bbq sauce.
Needed this cappuccino after the flight!

Meatballs! These balls were to my understanding a special and were pretty tasty and full of flavor. Loved the chunks of tomato sauce!American, Dinner, Lunch, North American, Tokyo, Japan
