“Best burgers in the ROK”

As an expat living in the ROK for a long time, I have tried quite a few burger places. None that I have tried come close to matching this one. The burger requires NOTHING. No extra ketchup, no mustard, no hot sauce nil. The milkshakes (especially the burnt marshmallow/nutella) are awesome. The fries, while not the best, are quite good and seem to be fresh (frozen fries are VERY VERY common in Korea since potatoes cost an absolute fortune). If you're in the mood for a burger/fries, this is the place to go in Seoul.

I ordered the cream burger and it was good, not mind blowing. The fries were terrible, please stay away from them. My girlfreind ordered a banana peanut butter milkshake and it was amazing. The place is nice and the servers speak english.

Outstanding burgers and milkshakes. The CREAM burger is one of the very best I've ever had and the Nutella burnt marshmellow milkshakes are literally to die for. Well priced. They opened a second location near the COEX in Gangnam that is larger and less crowded than the original location. Both are amazing.

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.

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.
