This all-vegan burger shop opened fall 2018 and hosts a unique selection of sandwiches. At the time of my visit, there were three 100% gluten-free burgers as well as a cheesecake made with sake kasu.

Before going gluten-free, I took FOREVER to choose off a menu because I wanted it ALL. Now, though I still want to eat everything, there are so few gluten-free choices in Japan it makes the decision making process a lot faster. With Nourish Burger I was back to my nostalgic hemming and hawing. I finally landed on the Veggie Chicken Nanban Burger.

Chicken Nanban ( チキン南蛮) is a specialty of Miyazaki, Japan on the southern island of Kyushu. Chicken Nanban usually consists of fried chicken coated in a vinegar sauce, topped with tartar sauce and served with a side of rice. This dish can be found in many lunch spots around Japan and is also a common staple at Japanese supermarkets. The bad news is, the chicken is fried in a wheat flour (小麦粉) batter and covered in sauce that is made with Japanese soy sauce (醤油) that also contains wheat. NOT GF.

Fried chicken, or fried food in general, is something I truly miss about my pre-gluten-free life. Which is why I was excited to see one of my old favorites in a version I could actually enjoy. Fried (vegan)chicken with (vegan) tartar sauce on a 100% rice flour bun. Perfection!
