You've have heard this welcome endless times as you enter a Japanese restaurant.
There is that distinctive soy sauce smell in the air.
The servers bow... and your mind starts running towards sushi and tempura.
Then you look at the menu ...
Hamburgers , french fries and a coke ????
You are in SANGO .
This Japanese burger joint recently turned one year old ... and it is still drawing converts back to its delicious burgers and fries. Owned and run by a Japanese "burgermaster" who worked for many years in Japans famous Mos Burger chain, this has to be one of the best burger places in town.
The place is a fusion of fast food and Zen.
LCD TV in one corner.
Japanese magazines in another.
If you are lucky, the owner will hand you a self-made origami creation.
