Hollywood’s Golden Fuku Burger! Stick It In Your Mouth And Bite Down Hard!

FUKU! FUKU! FUKU!

Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about Fuku Burger, a cool new hamburger joint on Cahuenga just south of Hollywood Blvd. in the heart of Hollywood.

Fuku is a small restaurant located along a new “restaurant row” in Hollywood – great places like Stout and Kitchen 24 – fun, hip and always crowded. Fuku is a great new addition to the neighborhood.

Fuku’s burgers are asian-influenced – they offer six different burgers, which I will show here – these are all from the website….


THE FUKU BURGER!

The pictures from the website make everything look perfectly presented, but what about real life? Well, I had the FUKU Burger, and this is what it looked like when they delivered it to my table, along with my side of macaroni:

Yes, I got a side of macaroni instead of fries…i’ll explain more in a moment. As for the burger, here is a side view as it arrived:

And here is a closeup of my Fuku burger, catching the colorful burger in all its glory:


GO FUKU GO!

I have to point this out right now: this burger actually looks BETTER than the one they have pictured on their menu! This thing showed up looking perfect, a juicy patty and bacon nicely topped with the pickled red onions, wasabi mayo and fuku sauce – giving it a rainbow of color, and yes, a mouthful of amazing, asian-influenced flavor:

AND IT’S JUST THE RIGHT BITE…

One of the great things about the FUKU burger is the size – it’s not TOO big. I am getting a bit tired of every burger being a half pound of pure meat before you add anything else…by the time they are loaded up they are usually impossible to finish…and honestly, one reason I like sliders is you can have a few bites and not feel stuffed…

The FUKU Burger is hearty without being too much of a good thing…you can hold it well and go right to it…and you can taste the meat, the bacon, the special sauce AND the picked red onion – all forming a perfect union – again, a great burger with an asian angle…

My FUKU burger was juicy and full of added flavor, and it holds together as you eat it, as you can see. They offer a number of side dishes, including terrific fries with their fuku sauce on top, but I went with a macaroni side dish – and get this, it’s only $2…


THE TOTAL BITE!

So here’s how it added up: The burger was $7.99, add a happy hour draft beer (they have more than a dozen options, with lots of small, artisan brews) and my $2 mac and I was out of there for $18…a delicious, flavorful burger with a nice side dish and a beer for under twenty bucks – go FUKU!

They also have a great staff and a fun vibe inside, as well as a fun website – check it out! http://www.fukuburger.com/
