American Gastronomy: Chili Burger & New York Blue Strip Burger at Tequila’s Diner in Shizuoka City!


The Chili Burger

Service: Shy but very friendly
Equipment & Facilities: Good general cleanliness
Prices: Reasonable to slightly expensive but very good value
Strong points: Tex-Mex gastronomy of superior quality. Doubles up as bar in evenings.

This is another report which should please my good friend Quizoxy!

The fact of being French is not going to prevent me from enjoying real burgers!
Fortunately here in Shizuoka City (and it seems to be the only decent venue in the whole of the Prefecture) we are blessed with a Diner serving burgers made with local beef only, notwithstanding the local vegetables, other meat and buns and bread locally baked!
I suppose I will continue reporting until I have exhuasted the whole menu!



The lunch menu (on both sides!)

No, I didn’t have these two burgers in a single lunch!
These lunches, although a bit pricey, are very generous and I can guarantee you satisfaction. They even offer an extra free serving of fried potatoes on request!


The first lunch featured a chili burger with home-made chili beans!


I like the way they serve it as you can either eat it the American way with the burger between your hands, or my way, a little at a time with a knife and fork!


I know a lot of American and Canadian friends who would come just to sample those beautiful chili (not really hot, thanks!) beans!


And their potatoes are always freshly fried!


Always coming with a very tasty corn salad!


Try and mix those chili beans with the fried potatoes!

2) New York Blue Strip Burger


The last time I visited the place I just couldn’t resist this intriguing New York Blue Strip Burger! French also like their beef!


New York Blur Strip Burger!


I couldn’t wait to slowly demolish it!


“Raising the cap” you will discover a whole steak, grilled semi-rare, cut in strips. And plenty of it!
For once my friends will have to eat it the slow way with fork and knife!


The bottom row queuing for your fork!


Now, that beef is extravagant (and local!)!


And plenty of fresh vegetables for good balance and taste!

To be continued… You bet again!
