Japanese Burgers Come To The East Village!
And they're mine, all mine!
Have you ever seen me looking so happy since I posed with Loni Anderson?
It's just that my face looks really at peace when flanked by a tray of goodies at the new Bento Burger (101 East 2nd Street), Miguel Calvo's Japanesey hangout adjacent to Lucky Cheng's.
At the cozy futuro-burger joint, the booths are awash in Blade Runner-esque imagery and, more importantly, they're filled with yummy foodstuffs for your East Village tummy.
The above heap of edibles consisted of a sirloin burger on a sesame bun, aioli, Asian coleslaw, Japanese pickles, and some Terra root chips.
As I chowed down like God-zirra, I was a holy terra, all right.

And get a load of the desserts -- a smattering of spicy muffins and a big old bowl of cream.
I'm turning Japanese just thinking about it.
