Another great find from our Japan correspondent, Zats Burger in Nakano. Sitting just outside the champions spot, their Chilli cheese burger raised eyebrows with its unconventional chopped chillies (instead of sliced) scattered on top of melted cheese, which made every bite delicious.
Eating chilli burgers can be a messy business but this, with evening distributed fillings, impressively held its shape. The burger comes in M or L sizes, and the L left our man satisfied rather than bloated.
A tasty patty too, although it started to fall apart and then out of the bun. All in all, I would definitely go back there and perhaps their take on the chilli cheese burger is one of the best I’ve had to date. A little work on their patty and this could be a real contender.
