Are you looking for some delicious homemade burgers? If so, Jiyugaoka Burger (自由が丘バーガー) is the perfect place for you to visit! This restaurant has become increasingly popular due to their healthy and good-tasting ingredients. Let’s find out more about it and its burgers!
Jiyugaoka Burger is located five minutes away from the Jiyugaoka Station (自由が丘駅) on the Tokyu Toyoko Line (東急東横線). The shop is an environment filled with greens and sunlight due to its half-terrace design. All of their tables are made from wood, making it feel like you are at camp in the woods.
There are eight types of burgers available, each in a small size or a regular size. Most of the ingredients used in these burgers are organic and most definitely grown in Japan. The vegetables are extremely healthy and fresh. Each patty, made from 100% Japanese beef, is made upon order so it takes about 15 minutes for your burger to be made. The patty is placed between fragrant sesame seed buns. The burgers come with a side dish of potato fries, but these fries are not your usual shoestring fries. These special fries are made from potatoes brought in from an organic farm in Hokkaido (北海道). The potatoes are kept close to their original round form and are more like small baked potatoes than french fries. The outside is extremely crispy while the center is warm and soft. The potatoes come with ketchup, but the rock salt sprinkled onto the potatoes alone is enough to enjoy the flavor of the potatoes.
