Gonpachi in the Miyako Hybrid Hotel? $16 burger ...

kevin Apr 9, 2012 06:56 PM

Has anyone tried it? I saw this ad for the burger in a Japanese language paper. Sadly, I couldn't comprehend the writing but I could comprehend that the burger might be really delicious.

Speaking of which, what kind of a restaurant is Gonpachi?

    The failed ambitions of Gonpachi are the stuff of legend. Let Google help you.

      Gonpachi is a sushi bar first. I have tried the burger, since it's not far from where I work. I found it decent. It comes with fries, miso soup and a salad, FYI.

      Apparently the Sushi chef from the now-closed Gonpachi Beverly Hills is now working here, which might make this one of the better sushi bars in Torrance.

          There was a post ealier that declared this the best burger in LA. It's not, IMHO. It's ambitious, though. That black brioche bun is rather unique.
