It was cold and windy a week ago when we stumbled upon Füküburger at the Bet On The Farm Market outdoors on Dean Martin Drive.
Earlier, we’d stumbled upon a video touting Fükü’s fabulousness, and had been hankerin’ to have one, even though we halted many a time at the thought of holding one against the hubub of eating whilst standing up.
Of course, we were, at first, mostly taken with the hot chick hoisting some hot, haunting, umami-heaven hamburger:
…but soon enough, after one bite actually, we were hooked.
What hooked us was the good beef, squishy bun, and the assault of flavors coming from everything from crispy onion strings to roasted peppers to housemade teriyaki.
Did we have to eat them on our feet? Of course. Were we happy about it? Of course not. But the food being put out by Robert “Mags” Magsalin and Colin “Fuku” Fukunaga is so darn tasty, we have half a mind to stay up ’til 3am this morning and hang out less-than-horizontally with all the hungry hotties that haunt this hutch.
Lucky for us, tomorrow night, from 8 pm onward, Fükü’s Japanese/Korean/Hawaiian take on the American burger will be at Frankie’s Tiki Room at 1712 West Charleston — right down the street from ELV’s ‘hood.
