Home of the cheese-in burger: Bakubakutei

Bakubakutei is a well-known restaurant in Chatan, Okinawa that is famous for it's handmade hamburgers, made fresh daily.

This is the original cheese-filled hamburger steak that Bakubakutei is famous for.

Apparently, until 30 some years ago, cheese was placed on top of the hamburger, until a cheese-loving customer requested something with even more cheese. The restaurant's idea of filling the burger with mozzarella cheese was a big hit, and the cheese-filled burger has been on the menu ever since.

The patty is made from a combination of beef and Okinawan Agoo pork. A mixture of finely ground and coarsely ground meat is mixed together, giving the patty amazing juiciness while maintaining a great meaty texture. The small is 200 grams, and the regular is 280 grams, both of which can be ordered as a set with rice, salad, and soup for an extra ¥420.

The legendary patty is also offered on a bun! Check out the 'Bakubaku Burger!'
