Thank you, Jose from my Japanese class! He found this hamburger restaurant way north in Okinawa while he was riding his motorcycle one day. I'm so glad he did because it was good!!!
So, I have to say that I think this place is my favorite hamburger restaurant now. It might be too early to say-- after all there's a whole island out there to explore for burgers, and they just seem to keep getting better and better. But they were pretty awesome.
Captain Kangaroo Burger is in Nago, so it's a perfect stop before going to the Aquarium, or if you're like us, just for the pure love of sizzling beef.
We ordered 3 burgers in all and devoured them in about 5 minutes. I'm sure our eatfest was the topic of quiet conversation for the Japanese people sitting around us. In no way did we hide our enthusiasm.
Take a look for yourself at two of them.
Mexican burger- this was dreamy! That's sour cream, guacamole, fried onions, and parmesan cheese on top.
Teriyaki burger- look at that cheese!
The fries were great too and they came with this little spice rack with some unique flavors of seasonings.
Completely unexpected, but the green tea powder was wonderful on fries!
Are you convinced yet?
Please, please go eat at this restaurant! Another bonus is the gorgeous secluded beach behind it. Seriously not a sole person on it.
Directions: Drive north on the 58 towards Nago. Drive through Nago and when you see the road split off and go towards the aquarium, make a left at that intersection. It's the 449 and you'll see a big park next to it on the left side. On the 449, go straight about a mile. You'll pass the Flipper restaurant (picture of a dolphin) and then Captain Kangaroos in on the left.
Let us know what you order there!
