Here's a new one on the fusion-burger front: A bulgoki burger. Robb Walsh, food writer for the Houston Press, found this thing at the a Korean-owned restaurant called Burger House on the Gulf Freeway.
The bulgoki burger cost me $4.53. “Don’t put mustard on it, that doesn’t taste right,” the cashier advised. I put a little lettuce and tomato on the bun, and a whole lot of raw onion rings in the middle. The meat tasted like the sliced rib eye used in Philly cheese steaks and the barbecue sauce was a little sweet. I’m not sure this really qualifies as a burger because of the use of sliced steak instead of ground meat. But flavor-wise, it’s right up there with the Pakistani bun kebab.
Is this pushing the line? From the picture, it appears there might not even be a bun top. Hmm ... >:|
