There aren’t a lot of hamburger restaurants that draw in the owners of other burger shops, but Goro’s Diner manages to pull off the feat. Since Seita Yoshizawa opened his place four years ago, he’s played host to a number of likeminded restaurateurs. Chefs and diners alike can choose from 15 kinds of burgers, with patties grilled on a teppan during lunch and by charcoal in the evening. Popular selections include the Rio de Burger (¥1,350), topped with calabresa sausages and a Brazilian sauce, and the Special Burger (¥1,700), a monster that includes thick-cut bacon, Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese, avocado slices and a sunny-side up egg, seasoned with original barbeque and teriyaki sauces. Goro’s Diner also offers a choice of buns—domestic wheat, rye and sesame—to cradle those thick patties. Stopping by for a midday meal? Try the special lunch set, with a plain hamburger, fries, salad and a drink for a mere ¥1,100. After four years of flipping those hot burgers all the way over in Gaienmae, Yoshizawa finally spread the love by opening a new Shibuya branch last November.
