In celebration of the new imperial era „Reiwa“ which will start in May and the long Golden Week in Japan this year, The Oak Door steakhouse has started to serve from 1 April a dynamic Golden Giant Burger that measures 25 cm in diameter, 15 cm in height and weighs a total of 3 kg (6.6 lbs)
As a lifestyle destination hotel consistently offering innovative products and services, Grand Hyatt Tokyo introduced April 1st a dynamic Golden Giant Burger that weighs a total of 3 kg (6.6 lbs) at The Oak Door steakhouse to celebrate the new Imperial era, “Reiwa”, and the long Golden Week. The regular-size version of the burger (last image), the Golden “R” Burger (R as in the new era Reiwa), is available since April 5th. Both golden burgers feature a juicy beef patty topped with lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, Wagyu beef slices, foie gras, and freshly shaved black truffles sandwiched between two gold-dusted buns, the perfect choice to celebrate this exciting time of the year.
Patrick Shimada, Chef de Cuisine of The Oak Door, said, “As a fourth- generation Japanese, I am honoured to witness this exciting time of change in the Imperial era while working in Japan. While I was thinking how I could contribute to this once-in-a-life-time opportunity, I came up with this idea of the Golden Giant Burger. In celebration of this special occasion in Japan, we considered using gold as a traditional ingredient to present this burger for the enjoyment of our dearest guests.”
The juicy 1 kg beef patty is topped with lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, Wagyu beef slices, foie gras and freshly shaved black truffles and is sandwiched between two gold-dusted buns. Priced at JPY 100,000, the sizeable burger is perfect to share amongst a group of six to eight people and costs JPY 100,000, which includes triple-cooked giant fried potatoes and a magnum- sized bottle of Champagne, red or white wine. From April, indulge in this Instagrammable burger that is fun to share in a big group. Reservations for this item must be made at least three days in advance!
The regular-size Golden “R” Burger (R as in the new era Reiwa), available from 5 April, features the same ingredients as the Golden Giant Burger, while using Madera Sauce and goat cheese to offer an enhanced scent of truffles and a good balance of sourness.
