So I decided to go back to Katsu Burger with a friend this evening because their Katsu Curry burger was running through my mind.
"Hey, wait a second though, didn’t that place close?"
Indeed it did, but then it reopened a few days ago, so that was all the more reason to go. I’ve already written about Katsu Burger before, so I won’t say much. Nothing has changed, which is good, because I honestly didn’t think there was any kind of re-vamp needed with their food.
Times have been tough, but Stephanie Kang came in and saved the day. Kang owns Kimchi Amigos in Bellevue, and she decided to pick up the business because, in an article from The Stranger, she states “I could not let the legend go down in history.”
She also plans to open more restaurants.
Anyway, pictured above are the Katsu Curry burger. The name says what it is. A tonkatsu patty with curry sauce and the fixings. Just, instead of being on a bed of rice, it’s between two buns. The fries are also coated with a nori (seaweed) powder to give it that seaweed taste. And the half eaten burger is the ohayou gozaimasu (good morning!) burger, which is a breaded beef patty topped with egg and bacon.
I’m glad that Katsu burger is back and there are plans of expansion. Honestly, I think Georgetown is such a weird spot for a great burger place like Katsu Burger, and with the talks of expansion, I can see a lot of growth potential for this special burger joint.
You can find Katsu Burger in Georgetown, Seattle.
