I grew up in Los Angeles, California, and one of my favorite foods has always been cheeseburgers. Now that I am an adult living in Japan, I enjoy lots of other kinds of food, including French and Italian foods, Japanese cuisine, and more. But, there are still times when I want to eat the foods that I grew up with. I have had hamburgers in restaurants all over Sapporo (actually, all over Japan) and I think that my favorite shop so far is Jacksonville, which is right here in Sapporo.
They have a really nice atmosphere, and the style of the food reminds me very much of home. Their burgers are 100% beef (no panko, no egg) which makes me happy. To be honest, I was really disappointed the first time I ate a Mos Burger – the patty was soft and chewy. I later learned that this is because they put egg and panko flakes into their meat. I understand that some people like that kind of patty, but it’s not what I grew up with.
I also like the style of the french fries and unique American drinks (like Dr. Pepper) that are available there.
I will keep searching for the perfect hamburger, but so far, Jacksonville is my favorite.
