You can tell by the makeshift wooden bench placed in front, that this place is pretty hipster. Can it mean a good thing? We’d say “hell, yeah,” in the case of Yankees Burger, a pretty colorful restaurant, busily and nonchalantly decorated with empty beer boxes and cans of jalapeños. Everything honestly seems makeshift, including the barely cushion-y cushions placed on each chair. Something about the rather chic-looking chefs here, quietly grilling patties and toasting the buns behind the kitchen counter, make us look forward to the quality.
And, “yes,” we said to ourselves. The signature menu, the Mullae Burger exudes a beautiful aroma from the mix of freshly toasted oatmeal ciabatta buns and sautéed mushrooms with truffle oil. The buns are incredibly soft while the juicy patty, aromatic mushrooms and the savory spice from the salami create an intense combination of flavors that is hard to come across at other burger joints in the city.
Upon asking the chef what makes him use all those costly ingredients in one burger, he shrugged his shoulders and simply said: “Well, they create good flavors.” Well, yes, you can’t deny it — it really does taste wonderful.
