As with other newly opened eateries by Keisuke group, their latest venture of Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke Bettei attracted perpetual queue to get in since it’s grand opening in March 17. We had passed by the outlet on several occasions, on various timings – sometimes prior to its evening service/sometimes during lunch. But there is always a crowd waiting along the walkway of the shophouse unit.
Perhaps it was already way past usual dinner time, when we saw that there was no queue outside the shop. We thought our eyes were playing tricks with us – are they closed for the day? To our surprise, they are open and we were shown to our seats immediately! Yippee!
Unlike the ramen nor gyoza restaurant concept by Keisuke, this new restaurant adopted a semi-buffet concept. With each main course ordered, diner is able to enjoy free flow salad bar and egg service. There are 6 types of eggs available and most are freshly prepared at the live station.
The main – hamburg set itself is only available in 2 variety: Keisuke Prime Beef Hamburg Steak Set or Triple Cheese Prime Hamburg Steak Set. But you would get to choose from 5 types of sauces to go with your steak: Original, Teriyaki Mayonnaise, Demiglas, Oroshi Ponzu.
We tried both types of patty but didn’t quite like the cheese filling one. The cheese was too bland and added gelat-ness (over-cloying feeling). Both the patties were moist, but it crumbles quite a bit when we eat them.
I dare say I enjoy the variety from the salad bar and egg service more than the hamburg itself. The portion of beef patty was rather filling for ladies (but good for guys) and I was stuffed by the time we finish our late dinner. Do not forget to save some space for fruits from the salad bar before you take your leave from the restaurant.
Although I enjoy beef, I’m not that attracted to eating beef patties. I would prefer if they could also introduce beef steaks served on their hotplates if they could expand their menu.
