Hamburgers in Shizuoka 1: G.O.T. Hamburger at Good Old Table in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very Friendly
Equipment & Facilities: Old but clean. Very clean washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Hamburgers and Tec-Mex gastronomy.

I’ve always wondered about the meaning of “Junk & Soul Food”!
Friends of mine had told me their hamburgers were nice enough so I took the opportunity to visit the place during my lunch break today!

The whole place is inspired by US and Mexican lore, but I’m sure it is a lot cleaner!

The writing on the walls certainly invites you to enjoy the food! LOL

Have a look at their “newsletter”!
Someone might feel inclined to give an American English lesson!
Although I’m sure no one did in their four years of existence!

The menus are everywhere, on the tables, pinned on the walls and even in the washroom!

The menu on the table!

My order: GOT (Good Old Table) Hamburger Lunch Set including potatoes (Fried or mashed), soup, salad and drink (I had a hot coffee).

Hot soup and mixed coleslaw salad.

The GOT hamburger!
The size is definitely American!

You cannot eat it with your fingers as it is a nikomi/slowly cooked and simmered style.
Forks, knives and spoons are provided.

I had chosen mashed potatoes to scoop with all the hamburger sauce!

It actually makes for a copious well-balanced meal!

And yes! The meat was tender and properly cooked!
And very tasty! Heads and shoulders above McDonald’s. And volume for volume, cheaper!
A very good place indeed for hungry expats and Japanese alike!

  1. The slow-cooked method is definitely something I must explore further! It looks delicious and once more very homely.
    The “junk” is really not a very inviting word…
