Tokyo Hamburg - Koreatown


I came here during the soft opening and tried their signature Tokyo style hamburg and one dessert. But they were different from what we expected. We thought they serve Tokyo (or Japanese) style food, but what we got wasn't really Tokyo style. Also everything is overpriced for what you get. Although I'm willing to go back and try other stuff we couldn't try.

Tokyo original hamburg $13.99

So to me, it was really not "hamburg", it was more like "hamburger".  I felt like I was just eating hamburger patty. No flavor. Also the dipping sauces they served was more like dipping sauce for Korean BBQ. You are serving it as Japanese style but they don't serve it with demi glaze sauce or daikon.
As you can see, it's not cooked so you cook by yourself.
After 10 minutes or so, the stone won't be hot anymore, so just ask to the server to change the stone.
Tokyo special parfait $10.99
Not really sure which part is "toyko style" about it. It was so disappointed. A slice of roll cake that you can purchase at Japanese grocery store, with canned peach, cornflakes, and ice cream.
