The King is Back
It’s only appropriate that this article be juxtoposed against an article about a vegan cafe. Really, it’s the only way to maintain journalistic integrity.
By now, those keeping up with Tokyo trends will undoubtedly have heard about Burger King’s return to Japan. Just a little over a month ago, Burger King opened its first store in Shinjuku and shortly thereafter, another store in Ikebukuro. The stores maintain that little taste of home except unlike their NYC counterparts, the food is fresh and hot, while the service is courteous and efficient. As an added bonus, the staff will actually get your order right!
Unfortunately, as with any new “in” spot in Tokyo, you’ll be waiting on line. I can’t believe I just wrote that last sentence. Who would have thought that one day I would be writing about the economical and gastronomical joys of Burger King in reference to it being the latest trendy restaurant?
Regardless, if you are after that taste of home that’s even better than you remember, Burger King is worth the wait.
