Just a five minute walk from Hainuzuka Station on the JR Kagoshima Line, BK is a restaurant run by OMC’s agent and sole Japanese distributor for Broil King, Canada’s number one gas grill. BK moved to Chikugo in December 2012 after three years in Kurume. The menu features a range of authentic North American cuisine made on Broil King grills, including grilled steak the likes of which you would normally only find in Tokyo’s specialty shops. BK’s steaks are Certified Angus Beef, the highest quality beef in North America. The beef is sent chilled, not frozen, and aged with a process called semi-dry aging. Excess fat is removed before the beef is smoked, so the steaks are firm on the outside but juicy in the middle; the aroma is mouth-watering! BK also offers burgers made from 100% additive-free fresh ground beef and flavored with herb salt as well as buffalo-style chicken—a North American standard. Lunches start at ¥850 and full course dinners start at ¥3,000. There is also a BBQ Course where you can try your hand at grilling on a Broil King on the restaurant’s second floor patio.(¥2,300~, summer only).
