Carl’s Jr (Akihabara, Tokyo)

I never thought I would have that nostalgic feeling eating Carl’s Jr. However living on 3 for 2 Western Bacon Cheeseburgers when I was a college student I had to make my way to Akihabara to try the new Carl’s Jr which was opened recently.


I don’t even care if I get it all over the place.

So for some strange reason whenever an American chain comes to Asia it is super fancy. Like look at this interior!


Anyway I arrived and there was already a line forming at 11 o clock. The restaurant was packed. The wait was 15 minutes. I never though I’d ever wait in line for Carl’s Jr. I was skeptical because I wasn’t sure if the food would be as good as home. They have all the burgers and desserts from home. Hand shaken milk shakes, Thick Burgers, Super Stars, Chili Cheese fries. I almost felt like I had left Japan and arrived back home.


The differences between Japan and American were customer service, Soda Cup Sizes and prices. It was a bit pricey but Japan’s famed customer service always shown through. The manager actually worked in LA at a Carl’s Jr and assured me it would taste the same. So I got myself a Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger with Chili Cheese Fries.


It looked a bit weird at first. Like the bun was too long or something but after my first bite I think I felt a tear roll down my face. It was the same! I quickly devoured it and was on my way. Many people around me commented how delicious they found it. So it sounds like Japanese people enjoy their burgers just as much as Americans!20160326_122915

Now you too can have burgers in the Otaku capital of the world and after return to buying Japanese gadgets and selfie sticks.

This Carl’s Jr is a 5 minute walk from Akihabara Station.
