Eat Actors in Tokyo at Whoopi Goldburger
The place may be nothing special to look at, but it’s certainly worth a visit. For a start, the restaurant is stylised; it feels a bit like you’re having a bite to eat in the basement of a friend’s house. It holds around twelve people, all of whom sit at the bar to eat. That means you get to see the two chefs cooking right before your eyes. And the burgers (which we’ve heard are excellent) are named after well-known figures from cinema and music.
How about a ‘Kevin Bacon Burger’? Or perhaps the ‘Charlotte Gainsburger’? It’s all pretty clever. Located in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, the restaurant closes when there is no more fresh meat left for the day. The owners, Shogo and Taiji, both play in a band together and have known each other since primary school. Expect chemistry.
