Katsu Burger closed yesterday

Sad, I enjoyed this place and it wasn't too far away.
Sounds like they were having staffing problems. Turnover there always seemed way higher than it should be.
I'll miss the fries, shakes, and burgers. Maybe Hajime will open up something else down the road. In the meantime he still has Mashiko at least.

  1. SAD! We were just talking about going there last week but didn't...missed out! The nori fries and delicious katsu will be missed.

      I never got to try to crush the Tokyo tower either, sad day indeed.

    2. Katsu Burger is back in business again. :)

        Congrats. Care to share what happened?

          Apparently a new owner bought them out...

          It sounds like they intend to keep things mostly the same (it ain't broke, so why fix it?) except that they plan to open some new locations. They've advertised for staff for a Factoria store.

      2. Eat there 3 weeks ago, looked, felt, tasted the same.

          Yeah, I've eaten there since the re-opening, and it was still delicious. No changes detected.
