Takes place at Tsunami Burger Yokosuka.
In the middle of The Honch, in Yokosuka, Japan, there’s this burger shop. It’s pretty good.
But they also have this massive ¥5,200 burger (about $45) that nobody ever orders. It’s just an attraction — the idea that you could order something that crazy if you wanted to.
My girlfriend-at-the-time Angela and I had walked by it several times, and there was always an obvious understanding that I was going to do it one day.
I lived in Japan for three years. During the last month before I left, it was time to put up or shut up. And you know I’m never gonna back down from my own dare.
