Firehouse Takeout Mozzarella and Mushroom Burger

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

This post in Lucid Thoughts will be my first that doesn’t explicitly cover something in the photographic world.  In fact this just fall into the category of something that I am just crazy about, and I wish all could get a chance to try one.

I am not a big burger fan, but I do enjoy a good burger.  In fact I never really cared much for a burger until my brother-in-law found Firehouse burgers written up in a magazine, and brought them home about 7 years ago.  Firehouse forever changed my mind about what a burger should be.

The first time they came home 7 years ago, they were packaged in these ultra nostalgic white paperboard boxes.  The name Firehouse had been stamped by hand along with a check off list of what treasures laid inside.

From the look alone I was amazingly impressed.  Then once I got my first bite I was hooked.  I have been to their shop in Hongo 3 Chomei many times, and on rare and special occasions my wife picks some up as takeout.  Firehouse always makes it onto the best burger lists in Tokyo and usually the owners of new restaurants often had learned the ropes by having worked  there.

The owner never really seeks the limelight, and nowadays there is so much competition in the burger market.  Firehouse can lay claim as being one of the first and the best.

This was one of those  occasions.  Their takeout boxes have changed to a more custom red box that I suppose is to remind the customer of hot red fire engines.  I preferred the more nostalgic white boxes, but the treat that awaited me on the inside was as good as ever.

The combination of the grilled mushrooms mozzarella, 100% beef and the homemade buns really hit the spot on a winter evening.  The amazing burger was joined by a side of fries and onion rings that the wife and I split.  To be honest I loved it, even if  I don’t really want to eat burger all the time.  For special comfort food occasions, Firehouse is the best.

For those of you in Tokyo and have never been check them out.  And for those of you who are on your way, If you get tired of Japanese food, try the best burger I’ve ever had, in Japan or America.

Firehouse stop by!

Firehouse Take Out Burger, Best in Tokyo

Got to Have that Comfort Food

Friday, October 9th, 2009

I was seriously craving a a tasty burger the other day.

Going to just the typical fast food joint just wouldn’t satisfy that craving for food

that just tastes and makes everything all right.  So, after I finished up some work I headed out to

Roppongi and grabbed a burger at Bakers Bounce.   They aren’t my favorite, but they can grill up a tasty

charcoal grilled burger.

Lets just say that it really hit the spot.

I don’t usually blog about food, but this is an exception.

I have heard of this burger shop Brozers, in my quest to find the

best burger in Tokyo, so being in Ningyocho today I decided to check them out

and see how they compare to my favorite Firehouse.

I ordered a Cheeseburger that came with 2, yes only 2, onion rings, and fries.  The burger was delish.

A great bun, tender beef and a hint of BBQ sauce.
