The Meat Between the Buns: J.S. Burgers Cafe

J.S. Burgers Cafe, Kamakura store front

This place was awesome! J.S. Burger Cafe Nice atmosphere. Chill music. Amusing menu. Photogenic lighting. And, if I may, cute smiles worn by the servers. Plus, I was ready to eat.

A few glances up and down the menu and I was ready. Despite an obvious ambition to present more than a classic burger with items like eggs, marinara, or teriyaki, I chose to keep it simple and ordered the bacon cheese burger. Figured it would give me a fair chance to evaluate the basics.

It was indeed s tasty burger- with a house baked and toasted bun, lettuce, tomato, onion, and awesomely melted cheddar cheese. We won’t say to much about the bacon because I’ve already explained that to you. I did forget that day, though, what to expect. But the biggest problem I had was the patty itself. I wouldn’t dear call it bad but the patty didn’t seem much like it belonged in the burger. It nearly got lost between all the great toppings- granted I ordered the regular (I think 100g) rather than the large patty. But besides that, it just reminded me of a breakfast sausage! A bit salty and spicy with those grisly bits that you just expect in a sausage.

So far, the burgers I’ve shared with you recently were the  Yokosuka Navy Burger. This one was not. For one, it was in Kamakura. Secondly, I’m pretty sure it had some more than basic seasoning and binders. Would I go back? Sure I would! But I’ll at least know what they mean when they say burger.
