From life-changing bowls or ramen to dreamy cult desserts, there are a lot of wow-inducing dishes to try in Tokyo. But for a heavyweight indulgence, look no further than this giant burger from The Oak Door steakhouse at Grand Hyatt Tokyo. The burger is only available until Wednesday May 31 for the hotel’s 20th anniversary.
The Grand Oak Door Burger is the restaurant’s biggest ever burger and weighs in at a whopping 4kg. It’s approximately 20cm in height and has a diameter of about 35cm.
Chef Tim Larimer and The Oak Door team have crafted this massive burger with some premium ingredients. You’ll find two 100 percent American beef patties – one smash patty and one regular patty – both topped with melted cheddar cheese. There are also layers of smoked bacon, grilled and fried onions, homemade pickles, BBQ aioli sauce and fresh potato buns from the hotel's in-house bakery.
The two beef patties are what really take this burger up a notch, as they’re both cooked differently to create varied textures and flavours. The thicker upper patty is cooked using both a charcoal grill and broiler to lock in its juices, while the lower smash patty has those satisfying, crispy edges.
The Grand Oak Door Burger serves up to six people and costs ¥20,000. It's available from 11.30am to 2.30pm on weekdays and must be ordered at least five days in advance.
