Wednesday/ Katsu Burger

Three of us had a burger and a beer at a fancy-burger place called Katsu Burger, tonight. The burgers, fries and dipping sauces are described as Japanese American fusion.  My chicken teriyaki burger with fries and Japanese mayonnaise* was very good.

*Mayonnaise with (among other ingredients) hondashi powder.  Hondashi powder is made from a smoked and dried fish called the bonito.

This mural is inside Katsu Burger on Capitol Hill, featuring Japanese icons such as Godzilla, Mt Fuji and the rising sun from the Japanese flag.  The katakana characters top left カツバーガー are promounced ‘Katsu bāgā’.
