Gold Rush, Shinjuku

Nov 25 2002

There’s this little “hamburg” joint in Shinjuku called Gold Rush. See, in Japan, they have something called a hamburg, which is different from a hamburger in that it doesn’t come on a bun. They bring it out on a sizzling griddle and you have to hold up your napkin defensively while they pour the gravyish sauce on your burgs. Andy and I have taken a liking to this place, and when his wife came up from Hamamatsu we went here for lunch. For some reason the last time we were there I found this upper corner of the store interesting. It’s not just the Pepsi sign, either.
