Katsu Burger

Hajime Sato of Mashiko Sushi managed to make everyone mad when he opened his Georgetown burger shop: American-born eaters demanded their patties without the panko bread-crumb coating, and Japanese-born eaters wanted rice instead of a bun. Sato refused their requests, rightly maintaining the inherent superiority of the Katsu Burger he devised. The panko crust seals in the juices of the high-quality meat, and the bun makes a Pacific Rim tradition portable. There's an array of toppings available for the sandwich Sato believes could serve as a Seattle signature, but the most important accoutrements are a green-tea milkshake and nori fries.
