This re-creation is an homage to a burger I’m always grabbing from my local Korean Tiger Burger. They call theirs the Kim-cheese, I call it biblical. A succulent beef patty, topped with funky kimchi, melted cheddar cheese, chilli mayo all in a soft brioche bun. It’s a revelation.

This unami-packed burger is well worth the effort. Tender steaks marinated with Korean flavours topped with spicy kimchi and cooling cucumbers. This unforgettable burger will wake up your taste buds and have you going back for more. Delicious!
