Uncle Kim's Burger

The time: 2:00 AM (or later)
The day: Any day
The location: Itaewon, a block off the main strip, down past the police station
The subject: Uncle Kim's Burger, amazing

While my friend Max looks like he's alone, there were six or eight customers ahead of us, and a similar number behind us, all after Uncle Kim's special burger--a late night treat unique to Itaewon!

Frankly, it's not even an all-beef burger--I'm not sure what it is, and Uncle Kim isn't saying--but it is a tasty treat fer shure for Itaewon's late-night denizens. Check it out!

That's a white bread bun, grilled; one egg, over hard; one slice yellow cheese; one slice zucchini; chopped cabbage; ketchup and mustard; seasonings; one patty Uncle Kim's special burger.

My boyfriend loves this place. He calls it the "junk burger" cuz "uncle Kim's" sign is new, it used to just be a nondescript cart on the street. Always a good stop before going home from Itaewon!

Hi Tuttle ... I happened upon your blog and wanted to know if you could give me some help. My daughter has signed a contract with "Willy Campus" and is coming to Kangsugu, Seoul soon. I've got a bunch of questions and hoped you could help by answering some of them. If you get this, I'm at Would GREATLY appreciate an email from you so we could get some insight into a few more things before she comes. Thanks soooo very much in advance... Barb
