Classic Post: Guidelines for Korean Burger Joints | ZenKimchi
In the past few years we've witnessed a bit of a burger renaissance in Korea. The flat discs sold by McDonald's and Lotteria were getting thick makeovers by new restaurants. Now it looks like a new fancy burger chain opens each week. Some are awesome (Burger B). But many of them still don't get it and are just jumping on a trend without thinking about its roots and meaning. You could say they're over-Koreanizing a foreign food, but actually, the Koreans I know prefer the more American style burgers of Burger B and Chili King than the ones these other restaurants are pumping out.
