Having recently got back from an exceptionally epic trip to Jeju there is a lot to blog about so I’m going to do a short one to get the fingers rolling! This is about the best burger I think I have ever eaten in my life.
How we were introduced to the home of the best burger
On our second night there, Monique and I decided to pull out all the stops and go balls to the wall partying. Before that though we needed some degree of sustenance and our tour leader recommended a little burger joint. This post is dedicated to that burger joint.
The venue itself is tucked away in a basement that getting to may make you wonder if you’re going to wake up in a bath of ice. But it is well decorated in a suitable island theme. All it needs is the actual beach on its doorstep! There is a free to use pool table and darts to keep you company until your food arrives. This unfortunately can take a while. The kitchen is tiny and there is only one cook, but by all that is sacred, it is worth the wait!
What we had
I ordered the black chicken burger and Monique had the Hawaiian burger (pictured). It comes with a generous portions of chips with grated parmesan. There are also a variety of beers and other drinks available to accompany your food.
I was close to gnawing on the table by the time my burger arrived because the normal food delay was exacerbated by having a number of our tour group with us as well.
What the best burger in the world tasted like
I don’t know what exactly was done to that chicken but it was a pile of mouthwatering, tender, bbq-esque, dark saucey deliciousness that I would write poems about if I had sufficient vocabulary. Put that between some fresh buns with some fancy cheese (that I can’t for the life of me remember the name of) and some lettuce and tomato and I can safely say that that was the BEST burger I have ever eaten. This burger beats my own homemade camarelised onion and ostrich burgers. It was better than the Rockstar from RocoMomas. The burger put the Quagga burger eaten at 3am after a night of partying to shame. It was emotional.
