TOKYO | Deli Fu Cious is what happens when a Michelin trained sushi chef visits Los Angeles and falls in love with the burgers and hot dogs he enjoyed there.

Owner Shinya Kudo’s casual burger joint is very unique, and you won’t find anything else like it in the world. Each morning, Kudo heads to Toyosu Market (Tsukiji Market closed in October 2018) to source the best quality, freshest fish in town. He then applies the konbu-jime process (packing the fish between layers of kelp) to infuse the fish with extra umami from the seaweed, as well as draw out any excess moisture.

The menu is small, with a handful of burgers and hot dogs. Everything is cooked fresh to order, applying traditional Japanese techniques. We loved the signatures Konbuzime Fish Burger – a golden fried fish filled with a thick tofu sauce, coleslaw, tomato and lettuce inside a Japanese milk bun. The flavours are unique and outstanding – a real umami bomb. We also tried the Boiled Conger Tempura Dog. It’s a Japanese milk bun in a hot dog shape filled with tempura anago (conger eel), julienned cucumber, and sweet-salty nitsume sauce (the traditional seasoning for anago sushi). Another winner.

If you don’t want your fish fried, the option to have it grilled is available. For sides, it’s simply fries and slaw. If you’re thirsty, Deli Fu Cious is full licensed – there’s beer, wine, and whiskey highballs, along with juice and soft drinks.

The name Deli Fu Cious comes from the words ‘fucking’ and ‘delicious’ and after eating here, we can’t argue that it’s an accurate representation of the food here.
