After chuch Sunday, me and my girlfriend were kinda hungry. After meeting one of the guys who comes to church, and talking a bit about food, he recommended we eat at a new burger joint thats been open for a few months now, the owner is from Cali and apparently whip up some good burgers. So we decided to head there and check it out. The place is called Left Coast and is located about 5-10min walk from the Itaewon station. Man the menu was packed out with some good burgers, the one that caught my eye was the Popeye burger, filled with spinach, juicy meat patty, thick cut and crispy bacon, fresh bun and some kinda sauce that went along with it. My girlfriend ordered the fried chicken burger, that came out and yeah was a tender piece of chicken, with some lettuce, mayo i think it was and some other burger mixtures. The burgers come with a long skinny pickled carrot i think it was. We also ordered a side of mac n cheese balls, kinda deep fried crispy balls of mac n cheese, i’m not big on mac n cheese but these were quite yummy, crispy on the outside but the mac n cheese was still kinda moist on the inside, cheesy enough without being too overpowering. Our friend ordered the Polenta fries, which came out thick cut, super crispy on the outside but the inside was still light and fluffy and not dried out and hollow.
The burger price range from about 12,000 to 15,000w unfortunately they don’t come with fries, they have a bunch of sides to choose from. Aswell as other items on the menu, they have sliders, and different kinds of sides. Sorry couldn’t remember exactly what they had, beverage wise, they have a some craft beers, and a few cocktails on the menu. Anyways get in there and check em out, the food is pretty damn tasty, a bit on the higher end of pricing but totally worth it, if not portion wise, but for the taste explosion! How to get there: Take a train to Itaewon Station (Line 6) and walk out of exit 4, turn back on yourself and take the road on your left (the street where Taco Bell is) and walk straight. Keep walking on the same side 5min, Left Coast is on the right on the second floor.
