Three culinary trends deliciously collide at Bachi Burger. The first is pairing the good old America hamburger with exotic Asian ingredients. The second is the stacked, mile-high burger. The third is foodie pricing. This is a recipe for success because if you don’t eat dinner at 4:45, expect to wait!
Bachi is the colloquial moniker for hibachi, the traditional Japanese grill. The menu tersely explains the eatery’s offerings “are a unique take on the classic hamburger utilizing Asian inspired flavors.” Yes, Virginia, this hamburger joint serves sake as well as crafty milkshakes.
What’s special about Bachi Burger: All the burgers are either all-natural Angus chuck or rib eye dry aged 30 days. The meat comes from the Wagyu breed; it’s the American version of Kobe beef. Bachi Burger gets its beef from a Northwest ranch that feeds its cattle like they do in Kobe, Japan. That means beer is part of the diet. Of course, this is the Dom Perignon of beef and you pay accordingly.
Who will love Bachi Burger: Foodies eager to try revolutionary permutations. Discriminating carnivores. Art lovers. All the art on the walls is the work of local artists. You can add it to your bill. Aficionados of Asian cuisine.
Who will hate Bachi Burger: Traditionalists. Price conscious eaters. Whole wheat lovers. Bachi Burger makes its own bread but its white and sweet. Anyone in a hurry. All the burgers are built by hand and take at least 20 minutes.
The must have dishes: The Ronin burger ($11). A juicy Angus beef patty serves as the foundation for sweet caramelized onions, Japanese cole slaw, a fried egg, miso dressing and Katsu barbecue sauce. On the side is creamy, elegant Yuzu citrus aioli for dipping. Also the truffle parmesan fries ($5.5). They are glistening with white truffle oil and come with a sun dried tomato aioli instead of boring ketchup.
