My friend Asuncion recently took me to this really awesome burger place in Daejeon. When I want an “American-style” burger, my best bet is to call up McDonald’s. But this place really hit the spot. It’s slightly gourmet…. offering pasta, sandwiches, as well as beef stew besides the variety of burgers. I’ve been to this place twice now. The first time, I tried the beef stew. The second time, I opted for the pineapple burger. I originally wanted the reuben sandwich but the chef said he didn’t have any sauerkraut that day. I appreciated the fact that he stated that instead of trying to concoct his own version of the pickled vegetables.
The food here is so different and so DELICIOUS. When you look at your plate, you can’t help but to think “NOW THIS IS WHAT A FUCKING BURGER LOOKS LIKE!” The chef was really personable and speaks great English. He told us that beef in the beef stew is always stewed for 6-7 hours before being served. I seriously want to swim in that stew. Anyways, here are some pictures:
