Reasons for trip

“Unjaune”:https://www.facebook.com/unjaune.hakuba/ is a burger bar and restaurant in Japan’s ski resort, Hakuba and it came highly recommended by my god-daughter Fee. It is an informal venue and there was only one small table left, but before we’d had chance to order, people left and we moved to a bigger one as there was six of us as Fee’s friend was joining us.

The burgers ranged from ¥1000 to ¥1200 (£6 to £8). I decided to plump for a ‘Veg Zen’ which was described as falafel with garlic aioli, avocado, tomato, onion and lettuce. All the burgers have unusual names and other choices were White Lamby, Crunchy Chikita and Park Pig and Beef. We decided to order a couple of portions of chips.

The burgers were huge and served in a brown paper bag. The waitress gave us a tip – don’t take it out of the bag, or everything will fall out. This was good advice as it was difficult enough to eat anyway as it was so full of lots of scrummy ingredients. There was no cutlery and it was literally eaten with our hands which were very messy by the end: fortunately there was a huge pile of paper serviettes on the table. The two portions of chips were similarly huge and the six of us could have shared one.

Wine was a fairly reasonable ¥3000 (£20) a bottle.

Our pre-trip briefing told us credit cards were not widely accepted but here, there was a fancy gizmo for the cards, a bit like an antenna on an i-pad, where you scrawled your name with your finger. Apparently it was said to be able to detect your e-mail address as well.

Food is only served until 8.30pm when the lights are dimmed and the music is turned up as Hakuba is full of young Australians wanting to party.
