Various offerings from Black & White

On September 3, Black & White opened near the Taniyama branch of the Kagoshima City Hall, offering hamburgers, creative Italian cuisine, and smoothies.

The café mainly serves hamburgers during the day and pasta and other Italian dishes at night. Shimonodan Eri, the manager, said that she wanted to open a hamburger restaurant in Taniyama but felt that Italian cuisine, which she had previous experience, was also essential. Because of these, she decided to create a menu that made the most of both.

The outside wall of the entrance features eye-catching illustrations of food. The café, which has a “stylish and relaxing” interior, is 53 square meters. It has eight seats at the counter and 22 seats at tables. The name comes from the fact that the featured dishes are different for lunch and dinner.

Lunchtime offerings include B&W Burger (1,020 yen) with a homemade bun and patty; B&W Special Burger (1,300 yen); Mushroom & Tofu Sandwich with demi-glace sauce (560 yen); and Fried Chicken Sandwich with tartar sauce (800 yen). Additional toppings such as avocado and cheese are available. Diners can also choose from various side dishes such as vegetable salad, fries, and dessert.

The dinner time lineup includes Ragu Alla Bolognese (1,200 yen); Chicken Fritters with Arrabbiata sauce (500 yen); Homemade Hamburger Steak (820 yen), Pizza Margherita (1,050 yen), and Risotto with Cheese and Cream (1,000 yen).

Smoothies made from fruits and vegetables are also available, with six different combinations such as Avocado, Spinach, Komatsuna, and Pineapple and Carrot, Red Bell Pepper, and Mango (600-700 yen).

Except for a few items, takeout is also available, and reservations can be made via LINE or Instagram DM. “We recommend our B&W Special Burger. The homemade bun, homemade patty of minced pork and vegetables, Allioli sauce, Colby Jack cheese, and pickles go well together. Please come and try it yourself,” Shimonodan added.

Opening hours: 11:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. – midnight (10:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. during the shortened business hours).
