When it’s the middle of a garbage week, you get to eat whatever the f*ck you want for dinner. Katsu Burger is a counter-service space with a Godzilla mural, local beer and sake, and beef katsu sandwiches - or in other words, deep-fried cheeseburgers. They also have pork and chicken katsu, fries tossed in roasted seaweed flakes (dip them in the spicy mayo), and matcha green tea milkshakes to wash everything down. Promise to be healthy tomorrow, but for tonight, give in to Katsu.
