Burgerland is serving Korean-infused American fast food in Anaheim, CA

Sitting in a strip mall on the bustling intersection of Harbor Boulevard and Katella Avenue is Burgerland. Kyung Kim wanted to open a restaurant that was a little different so tourists and residents alike would have something to eat besides your run-of-the-mill hamburger or hot dog. Kyung’s family has been running restaurants in Korea and in the US for over 25 years so they must be doing something right. In 2010, Kyung’s idea became a reality when a restaurant spot opened up right up across from Disneyland. She has the location and the audience. Now let’s see what she’s got cooking.

Bulkogiburger is a cheeseburger topped with bulgogi (thinly sliced prime beef, marinated in shoyu, sugar, sesame oil, garlic and pepper) with lettuce, tomato, and onion. Bulgogi is Korea’s version of teriyaki beef, but with subtle differences. The beef is thin like you would get on a beef bowl. But it’s not as sweet as teriyaki, which I like. The cheeseburger itself fades into the background. If you didn’t know there was a cheeseburger under the bulgogi, you wouldn’t even know it was there. The bulgogi really took command of the burger, but in a good way. The produce was fresh and crisp. Personally, I would convert this to just a Bulgogi Sandwich making it like a Korean Sloppy Joe of sorts. Thumbs up!
