Anime Central con attendees who make the pilgrimage to Mitsuwa Marketplace, about an 11 mile journey from the Hyatt, I have some sad news to report: Gabutto Burger (Gabu is the slang sound for eating in Japanese... AKA NOM NOM NOM ) is closing its doors. For many who make the roadtrip to Anime Central Mitsuwa Marketplace is a must stop.
Mitsuwa is a large Japanese supermarket, located in Arlington Heights, IL, with a food court inside of the store along with Japanese food, candy, and a book store filled with a ton of manga and Japanese magazines. While I'm unsure of how long the burger joint has been in business - it has been at least 10 years. If you're looking to get one last taste of the delicious "burgers with a twist," and you're in the area, be sure to stop by Mistuwa Marketplace before February 2015.
