French BBQ: Japanese “Nikomi” Hamburger Lunch at Brochette Restaurant in Shizuoka City!


Service: Very friendly and great explanations
Equipment and facilities: Great overall cleanliness. Superb Washroom
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: Great use of local meats and Vegetables. Very healthy BBQ and brochettes. Excellent reasonable wine list.

Brochette means “Kushiyaki/串焼き” in Japanese. One could say they mainly serve BBQ-style meat and vegetables on skewers for dinner. But it is not limited to that. They actually serve very reasonable full lunches!
I already have described their Japanese Hamburger Lunch in a previous post.
Here is another version of this hamburger lunch with a little twist: Japanese “Nikomi” Hamburger Lunch!
“Nikomi/煮込み” could be translated as “stewed/slowly cooked”.


Whenever you visit Brochette Restaurant, have a good look at the clearly described menus outside first!


“Jikasei Nikomi Hambaagu/自家製煮込みハンバーグ/Home-made stewed open hamburger”! the price is for the whole lunch (10 Euros).


Almost all the vegetables and meat are local!


Counter seats available if you want to keep away from the crowd as lunch time is very busy!


Bistro atmosphere!


Why do I always feel for a beer when eating hamburgers? LOL


Japanese “Nikomi” Hamburger Lunch!


Consomme soup and fresh salad.


French bread and premium olive oil.
You can choose plain rice instead.


The beautiful nikomi hamburger on a hot plate with its vegetables!


Plenty of vegetables!


The hamburger is topped with melting white cheese at the last moment!


Juicy and so tasty! A truly elegant hamburger my American friends would travel for!

Look forward to the dinner report! (I said that before… LOL)
