Let's Meat: Homework's
Tokyo’s gourmet burger boom can be traced to the opening of the first Homework’s restaurant. This burger shop bases its food around the “3 H” policy: healthy, hearty and homey. The patties are 100 percent beef and charcoal-grilled, served on either graham or white bread baked specially for Homework’s. Popular items include the 150g burger accented with sharp Italian blue cheese (¥1,550), as well as several vegetarian options, such as the Golden Veggie Burger (¥1,000), made with soybeans and pecans. Other meat-free items include the Spring Vegetable with Tapenade Sandwich (¥1,100), packed with grilled zucchini and red peppers, and the fresh Falafel Burger (¥1,000). Besides the two Homework’s branches in Hiroo and Azabu-Juban, the parent company also operates the popular Pantry delis in Roppongi and Marunouchi. Delivery is available for orders over ¥2,000 from all four eateries.
