a simple shop serving burgers with Japanese umami flavor between grains of fresh short-grain rice as the bun.


You’ve had it before but at Yonekichi, we serve it as a burger. Already a popular food in Japan, rice burgers have arrived in East Village’s Japantown.

The ‘buns’ are rice patties that are 100% additive-free. Our rice buns are grilled to order with just a slight brush of soy sauce.

Enjoy the simple taste of rice while savoring our umami-loaded fillings, from our traditional Tsukune and Sukiyaki to our more innovative Unagi and Saikyo-Miso Salmon.

The buns are designed to crumble but we’ve got you covered. Our bags are designed to catch any falling pieces so you can stuff your face in the bag to attack the crumbs.

Yes, it’s messy but it’s a delicious mess.
