This is a big news day for burgers. Seattle Met says Mashiko owner Hajime Sato has opened a tiny burger shop in Georgetown. As in, it's softly open right now. However Katsu Burger doesn't traffic in regular beef burgers. As the name implies, these burgers boast a tonkatsu, or a breaded and deep-fried pork cutlet, on a bun. If you want to get technical about it, Katsu Burger also offers tofu, chicken and beef versions.
The menu includes specialty burgers, including the formidable Mt. Fuji, which includes all of the aforementioned meat patties (remember, they're battered and fried), three slices of cheese, bacon, wasabi mayo, spicy mayo and tonkatsu sauce. All yours for $16. Shoestring fries come topped with curry powder or flakes of dried seaweed, and dipping sauce. And given Sato's commitment to sustainable seafood over at Mashiko, it should come as no surprise that meats are all-natural.
