Let's meat: Arms
Featured on numerous Japanese TV shows and magazines, Arms is widely regarded as one of the best hamburger shops in Tokyo. With over ten years of experience, chef Takuji Iwata cooks up some mean hand-grilled burgers, all of which come with a side of thick wedge-shaped French fries. Arms’ famous cheeseburger includes a plentiful amount of melted cheese; a patty with a slightly crunchy outside and a soft, juicy inside; and crisp lettuce with homemade sauce. With 15 types of burgers and 11 sandwiches, Arms offers up something for everyone, including vegetarians. Its location right next to Yoyogi Park entices both locals and regulars who come from the suburbs to enjoy a juicy one in Arms’ warm, country house-like restaurant. In November, Arms widened its reach with a takeout- and delivery-only location on the other side of the park, making it possible for fans to enjoy a burger or sandwich beneath the trees in Yoyogi and beyond.
