    The Oak Door Steakhouse, located in the Grand Hyatt Tokyo, serves premium-quality meats and seasonal produce in the heart of Roppongi Hills. Guests enjoy both an intimate atmosphere and countless culinary choices, including a wide selection of New World wines. As chefs mingle with dining guests through an open kitchen, cooking the freshest ingredients over oak charcoal, the beverage manager pairs the perfect wines with each meal.

    For the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing in 1969, starting July 1, The Oak Door is launching its own take on an American classic: the UFO Burger, with both the flavor of an authentic American burger and the fine ingredients and impressive presentation characteristic of the Steakhouse. A prime beef patty is paired with grilled onions, house-made pickles and fresh tomato and lettuce, as well as a crispy, teppan-grilled cheddar cheese skirt. The cheese, a whopping 100 grams, melts into the patty and resembles a planet’s rings.

    The UFO Burger will compete in the Roppongi Gourmet Burger Grand Prix 2019, in which diners vote for the best burger in Roppongi Hills. This July, let the Oak Door take you to the final frontier. Celebrate the Apollo 11 mission, indulge in this Instagrammable burger and give it a vote for the Grand Prix.

    The Oak Door is located on the sixth floor of the Grand Hyatt Tokyo.

    Yeah, that's too much money for a burger. I've heard it's expensive to live in Japan.

    There are more expensive burgers in that same restaurant...:ohmy8:

    We tried Japan's $1,000 burger — here's what it tasted like

    The Grand Hyatt Tokyo is serving one of the world’s most expensive burgers, the Golden Giant Burger. It weighs a total of 3 kg (6.6 lbs), and guests can find it at The Oak Door steakhouse, one of the hotels many restaurants. The burger was made to celebrate the new Imperial era, “Reiwa,” part of Golden Week. There is a regular-size version of the burger too, the Golden “R” Burger.


    What’s in it? It features a one-kilo beef patty topped with lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, Wagyu beef slices, foie gras, and shaved black truffles. The buns have been dusted with gold leaf. It’s served with a magnum-sized bottle of Champagne, red, or white wine.

    The original design for the burger was by Chef Patrick Shimada. It measures 15 cm in height and weighs a total of 3 kg (6.6 lbs).

    Priced at JPY 100,000, ($1000 USD) it’s intended to be shared between eight people, but we gave it a try on a recent visit to Tokyo. Reservations for the burger must be made at least three days in advance via the restaurant page.
