A new restaurant has opened up a few blocks from my office. I was really excited because I’ve never had a Korean rice burger before. Rice Burgers have been popping around Vancouver for a while, but there was never a restaurant dedicated to it as their main feature.

Guu Garden used to have rice burgers as part of their lunch specials, but they don’t offer it anymore.

Kobob-Burger-owners

KOBOB Burgers is Korean owned and is family-run. The husband and wife duo – Colin Park and Connie Mun opened up the restaurant to share the delicious taste of Korean cuisine with the local community.

Kobob-Burger-menu

The menu has Bibimbob, Ramyeon, Korean Rice Burgers, and Korean Pancakes. The prices are very affordable for lunch.

The restaurant is quite small, so it can’t sit large groups. A lot of my coworkers come here to do take out or come with a smaller group.

Kobob-Burger-wrapped

The Korean Rice Burger is all wrapped up and put into a container.

Kobob-Burger-Spicy-pork

Spicy Pork Korean Rice Burger with egg ($6 + $0.50) each side of the rice patty has seaweed and sesame seeds embedded into it. In addition to the spicy pork and egg, there is pickled radishes, and corn.

It is definitely a bit hard to eat as the rice is sticky, so I eat it with chopsticks rather than eating it like a traditional burger. The amount your get is pretty good. You will get full.

All of the flavours combined reminded me of a bibimbob, but in another format. I really like Korean food and all their yummy flavours, so thats why I enjoyed it.

Kobob-Burger-ramen

Ramyeon with dumplings was simple and satisfying. This can be a bit spicy for some.

Kobob-Burger-yum

Overall, the food is simple and makes a great lunch in the neighbourhood. The prices are great and you will leave with your belly full. As they are still fairly new, they still have a few kinks to work out.

    Cafe Marulilu on Broadway and Cambie also offer rice burgers!! And you can eat them with your hands too because they grill the rice so it becomes crunchy and delicious 🙂
