Lotteria is celebrating 30 years of dominating South Korea's fast-food landscape by serving a special burger that combines two of their most popular offerings into one sandwich: a bulgogi beef patty and a ground-up shrimp patty, together (that is, side-by-side)...at last.
Rob McGovern of Seoul Eats reviews the burger and shares photos that may cause "irreversible distress." Is it that bad? Maybe:
The 불-새 버거, as it is called, is half real burger, half sea food impostor. If you have a picture of something that looks like a mutant burger in your mind, a mermaid burger if you will, normal to the middle then frankly frightening the rest of the way, you have understood correctly.
I heard the shrimp burger isn't actually that terrible, but I guess that depends how much you like reconstituted patties of processed seafood. Donga.com says that the burger is available for ₩3,300 ($2.70).
