Generally most things with an Asian influence (Sakaya Kitchen is Asian influenced, duh) does not get picked up by my radar. Someone had posted a picture of the Bulgogi Burger from Sakaya Kitchen and I knew right then that it was on.
When I walked in, there was no need for a physical menu because it was scribbled all over the wall (not in a serial killer kind of manner though). Now as much I’d like to discuss the Bulgogi Burger, first thing is first. The Korean style Chicken Wings and Spiced Tater Tots catch my eye, which of course means I ordered them.
The Korean Fried Chicken Wings were deep fried and covered in a Ginger based sauce and were great. The tots were tossed in a slightly spicy sauce and were deceptively addictive.
The Bulgogi Burger arrives and my eyes are mesmerized. It’s gigantic, smells awesome and dare I say, it’s beautiful. It’s topped with Spicy Cheese, Spicy Tots, Ssamjang, Pork & Spicy Mayo. The Bulgogi Burger’s Patty has a nice crust (I’m gonna go out on a limb and say it was a Bulgogi sauce ).
It was an explosion of flavor and easily one of the top 3 burgers I’ve had this year. The spicy Cheese sauce is so good my plans are to ask for some to dip my tots in. Even though I left content, there was something I needed to do. It came to me a few hours later…..a double Bulgogi Burger.
There is now a double Bulgogi Burger named “The Beast” after me because of my suggestion. It is not for the faint of heart as it is big & filling.
