Modern people are busy. Busy going to work, busy working, and even busy on the way home from work. Fast food has become deeply entrenched in the eating habits of modern people because sleeping time and eating time will naturally decrease when there is no time to relax in life. There are many types of fast food, but the most representative food is probably a hamburger. Recently, homemade burger specialty stores that differentiate themselves from traditional fast food stores that appear to be quickly printed with the same recipe have also started popping up. I took the trouble of chopping the meat myself, putting it back together, making it into a patty, and grilling it, and focused only on the flavor. Today, the SNS Taste Appraisal Group will introduce 5 âexcellentâ homemade burger restaurants.
1. Enjoy local flavors in Gongneung, âBurger to Burgerâ
If you've attended or been to Seoul National University of Science and Technology and Daejin High School in Gongneung-dong, you've probably heard âBurger to Burgerâ or been there at least once. As such, it is famous among local students and residents for its delicious and reasonably priced homemade burgers. Although it's located in the back alley, it's not easy to notice, but when it's time for a meal, this small shop quickly becomes full of customers who have gone viral. If you look at the hamburger-related magazine clippings that adorn the walls of the Burger to Burger store, you can clearly feel the owner couple's passion for hamburgers. In fact, the owner and his wife are satisfying visitors' tastes by continuously developing menus and recreating âAmerican flavorsâ that seem to have been brought from America, the home of hamburgers, with various ingredients.

2. Washing away the stigma of fast food, 'Playburger'
In Sachang-dong, Cheongju-si, Chungcheongbuk-do, there is Play Burger, a homemade burger restaurant with an exterior that looks like it just moved from a store on Hongdae Street. The interior of the store is decorated in a retro style using exotic posters, stationery, and props. The biggest characteristic of Playburger's hamburger, which emphasizes organic ingredients, is above all, plenty of fresh vegetables. A salad is also served separately, so if you just do this, the image of unhealthy fast food will be completely erased. Also, french fries are served as croquettes instead of regular sticks, and carbonated drinks can be refilled as much as you want.
â²Shikigami Aritaum 12's review: It's something I feel every time I come, but I never get tired of eating it.
â²Business hours: 11:30 ~ 21:00 â²Location: 266-31 Sachang-dong, Heungdeok-gu, Cheongju-si, Chungcheongbuk-do
â²Price range: bacon burger 11,000 won /double burger 12,000 won
3. âBrooklyn Der Burger Jointâ is proud even among high-end French restaurants
A hamburger known as fast food is proudly located in Seorae Village, which is full of French fine restaurants, cafes, and wine specialty stores. The sesame seeds scattered all over the big bread and the thick patty made by grinding it yourself every day are impressive, but if you order it as a set, you'll get a full plate of French fries. Various drinks such as beer, shakes, ginger ale, and root beer are also sold to suit the diverse tastes of visitors to Seorae Village. As Seorae Village's signature restaurant, there are many customers waiting, so it's a good idea to visit in advance.
â²Shikigami Pacific Prince review: I think I know why the store is always full. The taste is delicious and it melts in the visuals! Hehe â²Business hours: 11:30 ~ 22:00 â²Location: 551-32, Banpo-dong, Seocho-gu, Seoul
â²Price range: The Cheeseburger 9,500 won, Brooklyn Works 11,500 won
4. If you are curious about the quality of the hamburgers made by the chef, âOK Burger (Cheonggyecheon)â
When I think of a chef, I usually think of cooking great Italian or French cuisine. There is a chef who broke these preconceptions and set up a hamburger specialty store, and that is famous Japanese chef Susumu Yona. OK Burger, a hamburger specialty store in Susumu Yonaguni in Yeouido, quickly caught the taste buds of Yeouido office workers and began to go viral, appearing at popular food parties. Thanks to his popularity, he also entered Cheonggyecheon. The biggest advantage of OK Burger's patties is that they are made from 100% beef without mixing other ingredients and can be ordered with the desired grill. It is said that they have gone through a long period of research to make buns that are both moist and heavy, so I recommend eating them slowly while savoring the unique flavor of carefully made bread.
â²Shikigami Everybody's review: There were many homemade burger restaurants that were really expensive and didn't taste that good. There's nothing like it here..
The price isn't that expensive, it's reasonable, and it's really delicious…
â²Business hours: 12:00 ~ 21:00 â²Location: 35-2 Gwancheol-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul â²Price range: OK Burger 8,000 won
5. 'Farmer's Barn (Daehakro Branch) ', a healthy hamburger made with the heart of a farmer
Farmer's class means âfarmer's barnâ in our language. Like crops cultivated on a farm, it contains a belief in making unpretentious, unpretentious, honest, and healthy food. The quality and flavor of hamburgers at any fast food restaurant is unmatched by any other fast food restaurant, using bread made from our wheat with organic ingredients and sauces that do not contain chemical seasonings. Farmer's Class, which started in Jongno 3-ga, has expanded into Hyehwa and continues its reputation as a restaurant in Daehak-ro.
