San Francisco Peaks in Tokyo is a nice little restaurant a short walk from Harajuku station that serves American diner style food. Despite its name or menu, when you walk into the shop it doesn’t seem to have very much to do with either San Francisco or typical Diner food. The ambiance is more “New York lounge” than “San Fran Diner”, but its a comfortable place with a decent amount of seating over two floors. Unless its really busy day in Harajuku, you probably won’t need to make a reservation, but then again it might not hurt.
The food itself, however, is fantastic. I ordered the mozarella mushroom burger(￥1296) and the 100% wagyu beef patty cooked over an open flame had a wonderful aroma and taste. While the burger could have been a bit bigger, at least the portion of fries was satisfactory. They were your standard faire shoe-string fries but they were crispy and fresh.
San Francisco Peaks also carries a selection of local microbrewery beers and the Indian Pale Ale went very well with the burger and fries.
Probably the best thing about San Francisco Peaks is that its in a nice and easily accessible area so you can enjoy an afternoon of shopping or sightseeing and drop by the the resturant for brunch or dinner. The burgers are tasty, so if you’ve already been to The Great Burger (also in Harajuku), this joint is definitely worth giving a shot.
