The Best Places to eat in Korea: Burger Bridge, Gwangju, South Korea
After a second visit to this delightful burger place in Gwangju, I am 100% convinced that this will be one of the best you'll eat while in Korea. I'm talking real, homemade, grilled patties with plenty of extra toppings that will leave you with a very full stomach and a happy heart.
Burger Bridge is a small restaurant located on the other end of downtown Gwangju, near Mudeung Mountain 무등산. It's in the Chosun University area, a place filed with the trendiest cafes, bars and restaurants. It's quite nearby to Florida Cafe and Hertz Guesthouse (one of our favorite dog-friendly places to stay).
The best part about this place (apart from how good their burgers are and what good value for money they are) is their opening times! Most restaurants open closer to midday in Gwangju, which is a real pain if you wake up early like us. Burger Bridge is open from 10 am! The restaurant itself is small, but oh-so-charming, and the guys who run it are super friendly. You can tell they are proud of their burger joint!
They have pretty simple menu, but also have the option of extra add ons (like cheese & egg).
Both times I've visited I've ordered the American Cheese & Bacon burger set (W7 000 for the set which includes fries & a refillable soft drink). Their prices are so reasonable, definitely the cheapest burgers we've eaten, and they are by far the best!
They have recently added potato wedges to their menu, and they are legit wedges...so much yum!
