Namja Town (ナムコ・ナンジャタウン)


0809220018“Sasebo burger Big Man”(佐世保バーガービッグマン) inside Namja Town in Ikebukuro. Sasebo burger’s homepage here. Originally from Sasebo(Nagasaki) and now has a few branches in Tokyo. I had the most popular Bacon and egg burger(500yen). The bun, the patty, the bacon and of course the egg are all very soft which makes it easy-to-eat and kinda fast-food-ish(Or is it a fast food chain?). The coffee(330yen) and the fried cheese balls(400yen) aren’t very good though.

Miracle Fruit Cafe(ミラクルフルーツ カフェ) is the reason I paid the 300yen of entrance fee to Namja Town for. Read about Miracle fruit here. I had the sourest parfait “Super lemon with lemon jelly”(680yen). Miracle fruit needs to be ordered separately(250yen for one). After chewing and licking the miracle fruit as much as I can for a few mintues without swallowing, the lemon slices and sugar-less lemon jelly taste nicely sweet, but towards the end I can taste the sourness coming back already. Fresh fruit platter maybe a better choice as you can try how different fruits turn sweet after eating the Miracle fruit. Apparently all the “desserts” in the menu are under 100kcal!

  1. That must be either a very big piece of bacon or a small size buns…
    Ha at first I thought the fried cheese balls were “curry fish ball” ^^;;;

    You have to pay to get in?!?! I checked the website, what a weird place, not sure what the theme is, a lot of snacks shop and haunted house…^^;;;

  2. It is both – the bacon is a big slice and the bun is small. I didn’t like the cheese ball so much – should have ordered normal fries.

    It is like a theme park(inside a shopping mall) so you need to pay an entrance fee. There are “attractions” inside that you can play. I tried playing them a few years ago but most of them are Japanese obake(ghosts)-related and I didn’t know what was going on. ^^;;; But there are also ice-cream city, gyoza street and other food-theme attractions. Well I just wanted to try the miracle fruit.

  3. Are the cheeseball those Brazilian kind? They would be good when it’s hot and fresh from oven~ The burger is like…breakfast burger~

  4. The cheeseballs taste too junky~ couldn’t finish. I queued for ages for the burger and had to walk around the theme park to look for a seat(no tables!).

  5. Just went here. Also my colleague recently recommended the place Boomin in Ikebukuro that you went to around this time. As usual you are years ahead of me.
