First Kitchen opened up in 1977 and focused largely on serving burgers, but in recent years has expanded with special edition burgers, pizza, pasta, desserts, and more! They have over 120 stores throughout Japan.
This burger here is why First Kitchen got so big! The Egg & Bacon Burger! Kinda like a brunch burger. Order it with extra bacon or and extra beef patty and you'll be "proteined" up for sure!
The other reason why a lot of people like them are the flavoured fries. I remember when other fast food chains brought out flavouring sachets for a limited time, but First Kitchen keeps that flavouring game strong with standard flavours and new ones all the time!

What makes this place unlike other burger joints is that it also has special items on the menu, like the Yangnyeom Chicken Burger, which is basically deep-fried chicken with a special Korean sauce and cheese. Or the salt & lemon chicken burger. You can't go wrong with a fried chicken sandwich. Ever!
First Kitchen also teamed up with Wendy's to create this crazy Namba Burgerw with inspiration straight from the streets of downtown Osaka! Think takoyaki or okonomiyaki combined with a Wendy's burger! It looks quite weird tbh, but definitely worth a try since you can't get this anywhere else in the world!
Along with a selection of burgers is a whole range of pasta... including a cold (yes I said cold) tomato pasta with roasted vegetables and mozzarella cheese. They do have a number that are served hot so if you fancy it, like a Japanese style pasta dish made with mentaiko and seaweed!
Moving on to dessert you have a number of dishes to choose from including French Toast, served with Hokkaido soft serve and sweet red beans... The beans aren't so sweet, but they make a delicious addition and giving it a bit of a Japanese twist!
Summertime is all about cold drinks and ice-cream... Here you have a Banana Caramel Cookie Float, perfect to cool you down on a hot summers day!
Are you game enough to try their chocolate sauce dessert fries or their super meaty reversed burger?
