Burg Holic: Take a Burger Break in Araki-Cho

Hamburgers and craft beer aren’t the first things that come to mind when one thinks of Tokyo. However, if you know where to look, Tokyo offers some exceptional takes on traditionally western cuisine. Burg Holic, located on the edge of Araki-Cho, Shinjuku, is one such example.

Service with a smile

From its flavor to its presentation, Japanese food is simply amazing. However, sometimes you just want to relax with some comfort food, and that’s where Burg Holic comes in.
Upon entering the spacious, warmly lit restaurant, you’ll be greeted with smiles and hospitality—things that make travelers from faraway places feel right at home. As you take your seat and start browsing the menu, you’ll hear classic tunes such as Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” playing softly in the background.

So many choices

With its extensive menu, Burg Holic is a place that requires several visits to fully appreciate. Although this article focuses on a basic hamburger lunch, the full menu also contains an assortment of steaks, sides, and deserts.
A craft beer lover’s delight, Burg Holic features over 40 domestically sourced craft beers. With brews from Hokkaido to Hiroshima, you can enjoy beer from all over the country, even if you don’t have time to travel beyond Tokyo.

Start with the basics

When trying new burger restaurants, it’s best to start with the basics, and Burg Holic’s hamburger lunch set is a tasty deal. One thousand yen gets you a juicy burger, a plate of fries, and a cup of fresh coffee—an excellent deal when compared to other burger restaurants in Tokyo.

The Holic Burger

The shop’s namesake, the Holic Burger, is a delicious basic burger to try. It features a 150-gram patty, fluffy buns, fresh lettuce, and a tomato, all topped with an original “premium ketchup” sauce that has a zesty flavor similar to mild salsa. All of these ingredients come together for a light, tasty burger that won’t put you in a food coma. If you are a tourist on the move, and you want to stay that way, Holic Burger is the perfect place to refuel while traveling throughout Tokyo.

Originally from Riverside, California, I've been living, working, and writing in Japan since 2009. Japan has become my second home, and I'm especially fond of Shinjuku, Tokyo. That being said, I also love getting out into the countryside and exploring the entire country. Through Tadaima Japan, I hope to share the wonders of Japan with a wider, international audience.
