I have mixed opinion over the cheese fries. I love the sauce with balanced cheddar taste (would be so perfect on nachos too!) but I thought the frozen crinkle-cut fries was just starch and no potatoes despite being very crispy on the outside. That's the way it was supposedly but I am not a fan of the texture either. The shake - I went for the daily special flavor of lemon raspberry - was nice, reminding me of those in an old-fashioned diner. I wish I have room to try the special lemonade or the frozen custard with a few Japan-only flavors, but that would be a bit of a stretch to my stomach.
second branch already opened in Ebisu. In the meantime, I am just as happy with a gourmet burger at the comfort inside a sit-down restaurant, or a cheap and cheerful fast food burger that is actually fast. After all I ain't see nothing wrong with the good old Mos Burger, at one-third the price and one-third the waiting time. Maybe I am too superficial, or just impatient.
