J-Grill in Richmond Hill: closed? (no more rice burgers??)

Their phone number is out of service. Google gets me nothing. I haven't been out to their location to confirm since I don't live anywhere near it (Major Mac / Bayview) . Can anyone confirm if they've still around or if they've moved?

Failing that, does anyone else know anywhere I can find Japanese-style rice burgers (bun made of compressed rice, "patty" is fried veggies or meat)

Thanks in advance!

  1. They are definitely closed. It's another Japanese restaurant now whose name escapes me. I think it starts with an "O". I never got a chance to try their rice burgers. I guess it didn't really take off.

      The rice burgers while quite delicious, but the facts that they were expensive and a small size probably did not get many return devotees. Lunches were great and more appreciative!

    2. They closed at least 7 months ago...maybe more.

      1. The place that has opened in the same spot is really similiar to J-Grill, unfortunately there are no rice burgers though. I suspect that J-Grill really was the only place in town that was making them.

        1. Manpuku at Village on the Grange started doing rice burgers!
