Japan is more sauce and seasoning than spice, that’s a fact! But there are a few places that I thought about recently that I managed to get a kick of spice from particular burgers. When I lived in Tokyo, I frequently went to these burger joints for chilli or chilli cheese burgers and I’m happy to say they have managed to survive the pandemic. I’ve chosen a burger from each joint that stands out the most in terms of taste and are the best option to try.
Chilli Cheese Burger, Burger’s Base
The Chilli Cheese Burger is mouth-watering to look at not just because of the size, but by it’s pleasing taste. This burger is also a highly recommended to try at Burger Base and a popular choice that is still on the menu till this place.
Mexican Chilli Burger, Cafe & Diner KHB
Another contender is the Mexican Chilli Burger. It’s simple in its name but it makes up for this with its ingredients particularly the jalapenos and chilli con carne. It has a kick to it, quite similar to the Burger Base burger and is drowning in chilli sauce in addition to the other ingredients.
Spicy Chilli Cheese Burger, J.S Burgers Cafe
Although the place is hidden and more known for its fashion brand, J.S Burgers Cafe is one of the rarest places to have quality burgers in Tokyo. The Spicy Chilli Cheese Burger is where you should start and like many burgers of its name, the real spice is in the beef of the burger. If you have time to go back, the Red Hot Chicken Burger is just as tasty and seasoned to have.
