almighty cheeseburger

If Burger King thought it secured its spot in the burger world because of its title, it was very wrong. After all, what’s a king to the almighty one? Brooklyn Burger and Gilbert’s Burger has probably been one of the most reliable burger joints most of us have been turning to, but the tables have now turned. Seriously, I dream about this burger.

From the menu to the interior design, I like how they keep things simple and minimal.There are only two types of burgers – the original cheeseburger and a burger with toppings included (in a way, I guess it’s technically one type). Usually, I’m a “the more the better” type of person, but I chose to go with the regular, and so should you. Three ingredients is all it takes to create this magical burger: 2 patties, 2 cheese slices, and pickles, not to mention the soft bun as well.

The size of the burgers are definitely smaller than Gilbert’s and Brooklyn’s, so for most guys (and girls, aka me) one burger will not be enough. But for the price, it’s a great deal for a burger + fries of your choice + milkshake/soft drink/beer.

Never been to In-N-Out, but my SoCal friend can testify that this burger is as good (maybe even better) as that of In-N-Out. Even the packaging sends those Cali vibes.

Even if you don’t need to go use the bathroom, check it out just for aesthetic purposes. Sit in each different seat/table upstairs. Explore the place. You’ll notice that they put a lot of thought and care in the decor, so let’s just take a moment to appreciate that.

It was kind of random to see a cheeseburger place in the middle of Bukchon Village. But like Bukchon is known for a place where the old meets the new, and the traditional remnants of Seoul are contained inside its urban, city-life borders, this place is also an old Korean-style house renovated into a hip burger joint. When the weather gets warmer, I can’t wait to sit at the upstairs terrace seats they also had. So come summer, that I may be able to enjoy my burgers filled with cheese in eighty degrees.
