Harajuku boasts 'best burgers'

Visitors can find Tokyo's best hamburgers - with a local twist - in the fashionable district of Harajuku, if one writer is to be believed.

Rocky Swift shared his culinary trip through the Japanese city in an article for Bloomberg and tipped the side alleys of Harajuku as the best place to find a "hanbaga".

One of his top picks can be found on Cat Street. Named The Great Burger, this popular eatery serves up "excellent" fries to accompany your burger of choice.

Mr Swift's insider tip for those heading to The Great Burger is to consider popping in for dinner rather than lunch - when there are queues of people waiting to be fed - and to ask for the homemade buns.

Hamburgers in Tokyo, a special blog dedicated to the city's burger options, explains that these buns are rather special.

Blogger w-ice describes them as "richer in taste" than the normal offering, adding that they are "fragrant" and sweeter.
