“Best burgers in Seoul.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

CREAM (cheddar rules everything around meat) are outstanding examples of what burgers should be. Not enormous in size but certainly not small either. And what really matters, the are absutely Delicious(capital D). I can't recommend this place enough. Its small and ypu will probably have to wait awhile to get in. Just write your name pn the clipboard outside and then park in the corner building nearby. For expats in Korea craving a great burger, this place is an Oasis.

“Seoul Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I'm on the hunt for great burgers. This is one of them--and not just for Seoul. The patties are excellently put together. The sear is perfect. The juices stay inside until you rip your teeth into the patty. Bun, solid. The different concoction are refreshing. I had the plain cheese burger with some bacon. My gf had the New Mexico and that was superb--we recently were in Santa Fe and had one of the best burgers in our lives at Bobcat Bites, so we've had some real NM goodness.

The C.R.E.A.M. Burger (Cheddar rules everything around meat) name is unbelievably fun and creative if you're a Wu Tang fan.

Take a break from fire breathing Korean food and eat this burger.

“Best Burgers Anywhere! Nutella Burnt Marshmallow Milkshakes are to Die For!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Wow! This place blows Five Guys off the map and we loved 5Guys back in the states. I would put these burgers up against anyones! The CREAM burgers with the light horseradish mayo sauce is to die for, and so are the Nutella milkshakes with burnt marshmallows on top - a true Seoul burger paradise! Prices are extremely reasonable - just be ready to be patient when you arrive and sign the waiting list because this place is always crowded during peak hours. Also try the chili-cheese fires. Highly recommend to everyone looking for a good burger.

“One of the best burger joints around!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The restaurant is not too big, probably about 30 seats. There's almost always a queue but service is quick and efficient.
The burgers are excellent, very nice patty, good fries and lovely atmosphere. The menu is in English which is helpful and most of the staff have well enough English to take your order.

“Best Burgers and Milkshakes in Seoul!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Wow! The burgers here would compete well against any burgers from any high-quality burger joint in America! I tried the Brooklyn Works Burger and my wife had the CREAM (cheddar rules everything around me) burger with the house-made horseradish mayo and both were phenomenal. The nutella milkshake was wonderful with the toasted marshmellows on top! Orea milkshake was outstanding as well. What a great experience and great find. Restaurant offers regualr-size (7 oz) or small size (5 oz) burgers. Prices are very reasonable - we will definitely be back.
