L iving in Korea as an American you will crave a good burger and beer from time to time. Unfortunately, most western food places can leave you feeling like you overpaid for a mediocre meal. Luckily Burger B in Hongdae is not one of them.
We read some good reviews about the Burger B in Hongdae and decided to go ahead and check it out. The atmosphere is pretty cozy and looks like your typical American bar/burger gastro pub. It’s kind of a comforting feeling in a place so far from home!We went with the “Tasting Pack.” This included the ultimate BBQ burger, gorgonzola burger, French fries, one small shot of vanilla shake, and a flight of four beer tastings for $31. The beer samples were actually big! The beers were (as listed on the menu) Guinness, Hop Cat Amber Ale, Welhen Stephan, and San Miguel.
Burger B Gorgonzola VS BBQ Burger Both burgers at Burger B were delicious! The gorgonzola burger was our favorite of the two which had delicious mushrooms and caramelized onions in the mix with gooey gorgonzola cheese. The BBQ burger had more meat and a scrumptious blend of gruyere cheese and truffle aioli that melted in your mouth.To our surprise the burger prices were pretty inexpensive! Prices ranged from $8 – $13 for regular or specialty burger. All burgers are cooked at around medium, they won’t ask you how you would like it cooked. Their fries are shoe string fries and are delicious! They also offer sweet potato fries, these are not the sweet potato fries Americans are used to. They are served with mango sauce and are only so-so. They are $6 an order and there are barely enough to share between two people. I would recommend the shoe string fries!
