I'm not sure why people thing Blacows is so great. I'm really picky about my hamburgers and this is not one of the better ones I've had. I think they salt the meat and mix it in, making the meat tough. The meat has the flavor of a mix of beef and pork. The bun is a bit overly present... More

The hamburgers and sandwiches served here are really good. My boyfriend and I had 2 hamburgers & 1 steak sandwich. Their Wagyu beef patties were perfectly marinated and prepared. Blacows had good service too. Their waiter and waitress were very attentive and courteous. The waiter even took the effort to recommend me their best selling burgers. For hamburger lovers, I...

I've eaten a lot of good food in Tokyo the past two weeks. It truly is one of the great food destinations in the world. But what I would have never thought was one of the best things I ate would be HAMBURGER. Unbelievable indeed. Blacows named after the Black Cows used for their 100% Black Waygu beef patties. Located... More

Great ambience, great menu with a wide range of burgers to choose from, a range of extras to add to your burger. We got the burger with avocado and burger with chilli - both were excellent. Burgers also come with fries, but they are more like wedges, delicious nonetheless. Comparable to burgers you get in Australia.

I have been to Blacows many times, and it is always the place I bring visitors to try a truly excellent Japanese burger. Without fail, they love the place and rank the burgers as one of the best they have ever had. High-quality Wagyu beef patties, perfectly prepared and combined with condiments in just the right ratio, these burgers are... More

First of all, I don't care that much about service, language, micro location, lightning etc, it's a burger joint - just make good burgers. And I can tell you - this is as good as it gets. First the not so perfect things - the buns... well, by the end of the burger I had none! They disappeared! The bread... More

All the best ingredients are used to make this burger. The beef, bun and toppings are great. The result is a excellent burger. I also tried the meatballs and roast beef. The meatballs were juicy and delicious. However, the roast beef was nothing special. I would definitely eat here again. Be prepared to wait in line 30-1:00.

Wow, where do I begin! This is without a doubt the best burger I have ever eaten! Ok so firstly, catch the train to Ebisu station, take the west exit. Walk across the road parallel to the bridge, it is right in front of you after you exit the station. Then all you have to do is continue straight up... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
