鉄板和牛ハンバーグ「AGEMAKI」 / Teppan Japanese Beef [Agemaki]

I had passed by this restaurant on many occasions and had been planning on coming here to try their burger - which uses 100% Japanese beef with buns that contain euglena (you will have to look it up on your own).

三軒茶屋で何度もこの店を見たことある。今日はバーガーに気分でここに決定。店の看板を見ると“鉄板和牛ハンバーグ”と書いてますが、壁と店の前に話題のバーガーを宣伝してるものを目に入った。それはミドリムシハンバーガー。 ミドリムシと言っても虫じゃないからね。

There are other items on the menu but I was curious about this euglena burger.  The burger is served with soup, salad, fries and a drink.


Good volume.  Cheese and bacon will cost you an extra 100yen.  I only opted for the cheese today.


Yummy!! / 美味しい!!

A decent meal.  However, this restaurant has one more special item on its menu (which I passed on today) and which my sister would probably love to indulge in.  This shop features and all you can drink plum wine bar (100 different types with the time limited to 100 minutes).  And only for 1000yen.


The restaurant didn't feature 100 bottles when I was there, but its still quite an impressive collection.


Bon Appetit!

Suntory Stones Bar [Rolling Gold] / スントリー・ストーンズ・バー 「ローリング・ゴルド」

Ah yes, I found one of the other drinks in the limited edition Suntory / Rolling Stones special collaboration drink.  Rolling Gold - more like a California Cooler (wine spritzer or chu-hi) to give you an idea of the taste.  One of my local supermarkets had it in stock!  Meh, nothing to write home about but it makes for great blog fodder!

あっ、スントリーとローリングストーンズコラボの酒また発見。“ローリング・ゴルド”。チューハイみたいな感じですよ。 味は普通ですが、ラベルは良いね。これはコンビニではなく、うちの近くにあるスーパーで見つかった。ブログネタでは良いでしょう。

Suntory Espressoda / サントリー エスプレソーダー

"A taste of bold coffee and refreshing soda".

Yep, that's what's written on the bottle.  My opinion?  Blech!!  Then again, I am not a coffee drinker, but I just cannot pass up something that sounds so wrong - like putting pineapples on pizza (yeah, I know there are many lovers of Canadian bacon and pineapple pizzas but I am not one of them!).  I will have to ask my coffee drinking friends to try this and get their opinions, but I for one, cannot recommend it.  However, it does make for a good blog post though, don't you think?

自分の感想! 不味い!ま、自分は珈琲を飲まない人なので仕方ありません。じゃ、なぜこれを買ったのと言えば、面白いから。そしてブログネタにぴったり。でもコーヒーとソーダーですよ、合うわけがない! コーヒー好きの人に聞いてみたい。
