My friend, local musician D. Lewis Brown, son of the famous drummer Harold Brown (a founding member of WAR) invited me to sample the Lea Lea burger, the signature sandwich at his Hawaiian-themed restaurant which is perched on the Horikawa river in Fushimi. First off you simply can’t beat the location. The Nayabashi bridge area is the cool new place to hang and Lea Lea Hale’s outside dining is set right on the water (not on a busy street like most other spots.) The setting is perhaps the best place to eat outside in all of Nagoya – plus its convenient to Fushimi station, just steps from the Hilton.
The Lea Lea burger is a serious burger and comes ready for a fight. I’ve eaten about 5 burgers in a week so I was a bit afraid of the sheer vertical size. This puppy packs two big meaty patties, a parboiled egg, a thick slice of smoky bacon, a slice of pineapple along with a wedge of lettuce, a slice of tomato and some cheddar cheese. Oh and some yummy special sauce. No ketchup required. That’s a lot of food – even for a burger aficionado like me – so I made the strategic investment in a burger wrapper and tucked in. Verdict? The best burger I had in this year’s round-up.
