Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke Bettei with Eggs and Salad Bar Buffet

Chef Keisuke Takeda is unstoppable. He has opened his 12th concept in the super-successful Ramen Keisuke Group: this time, it's Japanese hamburg ("hahn-bah-gu") steak, one of Japan's beloved comfort foods. 

The US prime beef is freshly ground on site and the patties are formed to order, so as to keep the meat in optimum condition.  

They keep the menu really simple. There are two options: plain or cheese.

The Keisuke Prime Beef Hamburg Set (S$18.80++, above) gives you a 150g patty of prime US beef shoulder minced into two sizes that gives you optimum bite and texture. It's really a tender patty that comes apart when you use chopsticks. No knife necessary.

The Triple Cheese Prime Beef Hamburg Set (S$20.80++, first photo). They use a mix of cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan. This patty is 180g and the molten core of cheese oozing out is surely Instagram-worthy. Just make sure you don't wait too long or it will get too cold.

But what really caught my attention is the unlimited salad bar! This is something you get with every set.

Incredibly fresh and crisp vegetables in a special chiller along with other side dishes like creamy pastas, potato salad, noodles, seaweed and pickles. Hey, I'm a meat person but I'd come back here just for the quality of the ingredients in this salad bar.


Next to this is the Live Egg station, where you can get free-flow eggs in six styles: scrambled, sunny side up, deep-fried, boiled, half-boiled, omelette and tamagoyaki. I already thought the boiled eggs at his ramen shops were such a nice gesture; this and the salad bar completely blows it out of the water!

So to summarise, apart from the US prime beef patty, each Hamburg set comes with
  • umlimited eggs from the Live Egg station 
  • a buffet of 20 Japanese side dishes/salad bar
  • free-flow rice
  • miso soup
  • toasted beancurd skin (abuaage) and grilled tofu with bonito flakes
  • one ebi-fry (prawn fritter)
  • 1 of the 4 different sauces: Keisuke original sweet and spicy sauce, demi-glace, oroshi ponzu (radish with vinegar) and teriyaki.
If that is not incredible value, I don't know what is.

The brightly lit 66-seater restaurant is contemporary and comfortable, with an open kitchen so diners can watch their food being prepared.

When you are there, try the Sakura cola that Keisuke bottles in Japan as well.
