Review excerpt: The patties at Mikkeller Kanda are all prepared in-house, using Japanese beef that’s ground daily as needed. They’re firm and flavorful, browned on the outside but with just enough moist meat inside.
Review excerpt: Taishu Sakaba Raincolor's signature dish is a hearty Hamburg steak the size of a tennis ball, prepared from ground Hokkaido venison and served on a bed of mashed potato with a rich jus.

Review excerpt: The menu at Okinawa Paradise is neither extensive nor sophisticated. As at most Okinawa restaurants, the “simple is best” approach rules.
