If you happen to be in Gubei area, Big Apple is a small Japanese restaurant with excellent ハンバーグ (hamburger patties served without the bun) that you must try. My favorites are the cheese hamburger patty and the 和風 (Japanese-style) hamburger patty. Tender, juicy, full of flavors!
Big Apple hamburger patties
I usually order the set, which comes with soup (vegetable or cream of corn), salad, the hamburger steak, a choice of rice and bread, and a dessert (ice-cream or pudding). The accompanying dishes aren’t anything impressive, but they make a nice meal with whichever variety of hamburger steak you order.

Hamburger steak with egg
When in the mood for something heavy, opt for the cheese hamburger steak with a choice of rice. The sauce is heavier and saltier, a good combination with perfectly cooked Japanese rice. When in the mood for something light, choose the Japanese-style hamburger steak with a choice of bread. The patty is served with a sour sauce, a heap of finely shredded turnips, topped with slices of shiso leaves, and all the flavors mash nicely together.

Big Apple is tucked away in a corner of the Gubei (Wan Ke) Plaza, so it may take you a while to find it the first time. It will be worth the search!
