Burgers done right, each "mini burger" containing 50 grams of beef and just the right amount of melted cheddar cheese and "cajun" sauce on perfectly toasted buns. The only thing lacking was a vegetable, perhaps an onion slice or leaf of lettuce, that would've helped cut the extremely rich flavors of the other ingredients. At 8,900 won for the set, not expensive, though certainly not cheap.
Yaletown is a burger joint cum bar. It's located near the main entrance to Yonsei University, just a block away from The Kimchi Jjigae. With an owner and staff who speak perfect English, and a constant stream of American sports from the beam projector, the restaurant clearly caters to expats and other English-speaking clientele. It was my 2nd time there, though the 1st to try the burgers.
To celebrate my graduation from graduate school, my friends took me to Yaletown, figuring that I would prefer American food and drink over the Korean offerings that we usually have when in the neighborhood. They were right. Burgers and Jack Daniel's. It was perfect.
Next time, I'll try a full-sized burger. I look forward to it.
