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

The burgers are what you come here for. Wagyu Beef patties, avocado, bacon, cheese and sauces enveloped by soft Maison Kaiser buns. Juicy and delicious. They also make a monster burger that is almost a foot high - but burgers should be eaten from one's hands to one's mouth. Do not miss this place.

In my quest to add gourmet junk to my itinerary Rather than taking another risk , as I previously did I opted to go with the clear good option , blacows , it didn't disappoint but it did not impress either , the Bun out staged the party , which is surprising since the party is pure wagyu . It's... More

I've been all over the world tasting burger, I can say this is one of those on the top of my shortlist. Wagyu Beef patty served medium rare. That means the meat juice are very much present. Added with the fries, the combination is just deadly. No wonder the queue get so long during dining hours. I'd recommend eating a... More

We visited the Blacow stall located in the supermarket at Shinjuju. The quality of beef patty was good. Not minced but whole meat.. We enjoyed our meal. Downside - nowhere to sit for our meal. Had to eat it outside.

This was not my first time and certainly not the last one... Every time I am having a great time in this little burger joint. Close to the Ebisu tube station, easy to find this restaurant is heaven for beefeaters. At night a more traditional menu is available around the wagyu beef. It is all about the burger nothing else:... More

I love Japanese cuisine, but after a week of business meals in Tokyo, this place is heaven. Great burgers, great staff and a fun atmosphere. Always on my itinerary at the end of a busy week. Its well worth the trek out from the centre of Tokyo.

One of the best, if not the best burger I've ever had at a restaurant. If you're in Tokyo, I highly recommend that you seek this place out. Reasonably priced and friendly staff.

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.
