The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version:
I will be back again and again for these AMAZING crispy rice burgers.
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:
Everyone around me knows my obsession with KOI and it’s in large part thanks to their crispy rice. I mean I love everything about that place, but if it was a life-or-death situation and I could only pick 1 menu item their crispy rice with spicy tuna would definitely be it (well… their crab rolls are beyond amazing too, but Kristal stay on point – this scenario isn’t actually happening). The combination of the spicy tuna and perfectly crisp rice is DIVINE! I dream about it, lust over it and often times stop by just to grab some to go (even if I just ate elsewhere – don’t judge me!). So when I found out that Roppongi serves a crispy rice and spicy tuna burger I HAD to have it. This past weekend, we stopped by and picked some up.
What we ate:
- Crispy rice and spicy tuna burger ($12)
While i would normally suggest eating something like this right away, my house is literally 5 minutes from the restaurant and they held up really well. There isn’t much to say except TRY.THIS.BURGER! It’s so amazing. The rice is crispy, but not hard or too thick, the ratio of rice to tuna is great and the avocado is a good complement. I did find the burger a bit small, so even though the rice makes it pretty filling – I wouldn’t call this a meal. But feel free to buy two and go to town 🙂
This will now be a MUST when I go to LA, great find!
