Upon telling people I was planning on visiting Sasebo, every person (even the stranger in the elevator who randomly asked if I had any plans for the weekend) made it a point to tell me that “they have a Chili’s there.” I don’t really miss American food that much, since I cook at home nearly every day. Especially not mediocre chain restaurants that I’ve only been to 3 or 4 times in my 32 years on this Earth, but I digress.

I spent weeks reading about Sasebo, things to do, places to see, FOOD TO EAT. I love food. I love burgers. I LOVE the Sasebo Burger, and Big Man is the place to get it! The recipe was apparently introduced by American sailors around 1950 and “has become famous as the taste of Sasebo.”  This is no American burger though.


The burger (patty) itself is rather thin, but this burger isn’t about the meat. It’s the flavors! There are many to choose from and there is some English on the menu. I got the Bacon and Egg Burger. It has a burger patty with lettuce, tomato, onion, fried egg, fresh cut bacon, mayo and ketchup. It’s not your run of the mill mayo or ketchup though. I wish I knew their secret! Burger was amazing! The husband got the Gokusen Burger. HUGE. It was basically the same as mine only it had cheese, double patties, and double bacon. He loved his as well.

907880_10151381783884071_2103406218_nWe both went with the “set” (combo meal) with fries and a drink. I’m not usually a fries kinda girl, but theirs were great! As if that weren’t enough, we got the Pon Cheese too! What’s that, you ask? Not real sure. Basically, some sweet creamy cheese inside a little fried dough ball. Ummmm, cheese sticks, but better!!! Definitely try them.

Cost:  Arm. Leg. First born… really, we’re not talking fast food here, even though you get that impression when you walk in. Our 2 meals plus the Pon Cheese were around 3200 Yen. I don’t like to pay a ton for food because I eat a lot, and often, but at Big Man, I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

Directions From Sasebo Navy Base: Go out the main gate and turn right. At the first major intersection (Nissan dealership on your right) turn left. Big Man will be on your right, after the railroad tracks, before the shopping arcade. If there are sidewalks (pretty sure there are) I suggest walking there. Parking is a nightmare in that area. You may find a garage.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
I had to tell someone!
