  • Ayyyy, LA Burger! This is down the street, I've sat in that booth! K-town burger is my go-to, and the bulgogi fries are freaking amazing. Eater should check out Gang Jung Chicken across the parking lot, great Korean fried chicken.

  • I've been to this place and this burger is LEGIT! So GOOD!

  • eating it while the toothpick is still in it is freaking me out.

  • My city is famous. This is the first time ive ever heard Carrollton mentioned in a video.

  • Watching this, wondering if he's going to bite the toothpick still in the burger

  • that bread on bottom of burger is what we call "TEXAS TOAST"

  • ima go try this.

  • Wait are they double frying the onion rings or are those not handmade. Look cooked and wabbly when throwing into the fryer

  • I live in Dallas and this place is everywhere it’s not that special lol

  • This is literally my favorite burger place close to my place. Even if you dont go for a korean style burger its fantastic and the bulgogi tots are to die for.

  • That meat looks so good man

  • I want to eat it RIIGHT NOW !

  • I got hooked on Korean food while stationed there, so good

  • awesome!

  • Beautiful ! I love Korean food so much

  • kimchi bulgogi fries 😋

  • His description of a "Cali Burger" sounds just like a Big Mac! :D

  • Enough Korean food...

  • I don't get what's special about this place. There have been places doing this kind of food for years now.

  • A place in Hawaii has had Kimchi Burgers for years now. Over 10yrs.

  • there hot dogs are awesome also

  • as a Korean American, this restaurant is like all my stoner meals i put together with my parents leftovers lol

  • He doesn’t seem that impressed by the burger.

  • Kim chi is good on everything as far as I am concern.

  • *Kimcheeseburger*

  • Dislike for that subtle shot at In & Out. How dare u.

  • I have seen a lot of delicious food on this show, but this burger made me DROOL.

  • inb4 bulgogi shwarma and kimchi tabule

  • Its should be kimchiseburger

  • My parents live in Carrollton! I know where I’m going next time I visit

  • Some how the first word that came to my mind was NO.

  • Who picks your music? Get rid of them.

  • Kim Chi is basically like a spicy pickle... OF COURSE IT'D WORK!!!!

  • It’s Korean-Americans who’re innovating K food. Koreans can’t do it.

  • do a pinoy series next

  • JP, WTF, go back to the Hellthy Junk Food

  • just stop. stop trying to fuse different cultures when everyone GotDamn knows races stick to their own

  • How can this be a Korean burger, with teriyaki? This food looks gross.

  • The Kimcheeseburger

  • If they didnt call it the kimcheese burger ill be disappointed

  • The way he said Bulgogi....... "Buhgogi"

  • Where is Lucas and nick they are mia for awhile now

  • Freakin love LA burger! 🤤🤤

  • poutine is dog food

  • This made me hella hungry

  • I mean I love both cultures but how are you gonna call a Korean influenced burger an "All American Burger" ? It's not even trying to be one.

  • Where's Nick Solares and Lucas?!?!

  • For everyone complaining about more Korean food, this is a _series on Korean food._

  • ENOUGH KOREAN FOOD

  • I like to eat this. For sure.

  • I really wish Eater would do the same amount of coverage for black own restaurants or flavors.

    • Go watch some show that does? There are plenty.

    • you can only do so many episodes on chicken

    • Miss O.P. I'm with you on that

    • @ᙅYᙖᙓᖇ ᗪOᙅ™ I love soul food, and Ethiopian food, spicy yummy, I love Nigerian food, I love tons of that. Quota of good food. Never. But we have a Korean show.... that goes on and on about yummy Korean food. I think that we could spread the love to other ethnic food as well. Id loves a greek food guy, hell I'd love a Turkish food guy. I think the real question isn't if I think there should be a quota the real question is why you don't want to explore the amazin world and find all kinda foods. Why "Why? Is there some quota to be met or something?" leave an ignorant statement like that.

  • We'll the series is called K-Town, so obviously it's going to be all Korean food. But at one point they will run out of Korean restaurants to feature in the show.

    • Killdynamite restuarants open and close constantly, what are you even talking about.

    • Food is limited to a given location called Earth. And the amount of restaurants in the world is finite therefore given enough time, all content will be extinguished.

    • Killdynamite the food world is so vast and ever changing I doubt they will run out of stuff to feature. Plus, having that title is too vague. They needed a niche to differentiate them from other shows in the channel and in US-tv in general. If it's limited to a location, they will run out of stuff to feature. In the end they will need to expand.

    • If a series was named Food, it would eventually run out of restaurants to feature too

    • Ariel well they have had a longer run than I thought since initially I thought they would only feature the places in ktown LA

  • I'm starting to wonder if history holds any records of any Korean person who didn't like kimchi. Never tried it personally as there are virtually no Koreans in my country, but the love Koreans have for the stuff is truly beyond my comprehension. Not hatin' at all

  • Man now I'm sooooo hungry

  • mouth was watering so much

  • You guys should hire Mike Chen

  • You do realize there is more than Korean food right?

  • Just add kimchi to any dish n call it korean fusion lol

  • I love this Korean take on the burger. Kimchi tastes good on practically anything.

    • As a fellow Carrollton K-town visitor, I can also confirm. Fried egg is a MUST! I'm craving LA Burger now...

    • Across theUniverse Can confirm. It's an incredible burger. All of the components blend together incredibly well. Definitely get it with egg and American cheese. They have a great selection of beer on tap too (Peticolas and Revolver are some good ones).

    • Not on Burgers, Fries or Pizza. Maybe on icecream!

    • Across theUniverse Doesn't mean it should be on anything

  • Eater puts up Meat Show vids, viewers lol at Nick and his jargon Eater stops putting up Meat Show vids, viewers are like, where’s Nick at? Nice vid, btw... but it seemed like he wasn’t that enthused with the food here, could just be me

  • 3:00 good band name

  • That looks sooo good, but this dude needs to go for a run once in a while, can't eat that much awesome food and never workout

  • Did it bother anyone else that he ate that burger without removing the toothpick the entire time?

  • where’s lucas at

  • WHERE IS NICK!

  • So much Korean food content... I agree with most viewers that Eater needs to spin Kang off on to his own sub-channel.

    • It's once a week just like other series. If you don't like it, don't watch it.

  • Matt's like the only one of the OG's that still posts regularly. What happened to Lucas and Nick?

  • Yo! That’s my boy, Jon! Great people and great food! Glad they are getting some love!

  • Blah blah blah why so much korean stuff?! -people that clicked on a video with korean in the title

  • It's not in Dallas. It's in Carrollton Texas. A huge community and shopping area for all Oriental foods and restaurants. Nearby there are Asian places in scores that call them selves Indo-Pak. These are Indian and Pakistani places for food and clothing. I live 5 minutes from LA Burger and while as a white boy I still go to Whataburger most often...LA Burger is totally legit! This community took over a failed Mervins and its associated strip mall and turned it into something really special that attracts Oriental people and indo Paks from all over a multi state region...truly a success story for these small business owners..I cannot be too proud of my neighbors!

    • “Oriental people” lol 🙄🙄🙄

    • Whoever edited the video fucked that up. The host said Carrolton.

  • can we get out of K-Town please, curious about other cuisines EATER

  • So tired of this series

  • Oh wow Korean stuff again.... Who would have guessed that...

    • pacifist murican mfs, what a surprise

    • Korean food? In a show called K-Town? How could you, Eater! REEEEEEEEEE

    • Ha! Read the titles, Dumbass.

    • hmm... well the show is called K TOWN

    • me!

  • Could we have less of Korean and more of other Asian cuisine. This is just my opinion please don't go all out toxic on me lol.

    • Eater Thank you, Enjoy all your videos! Keep Em' Coming!!

    • If you're interested in other Asian cuisines, check out our series "Cooking in American" or "Dining on a Dime". They both have covered quite a few different Asian cuisines. This particular series, "K-Town", is focuses on Korean foods and fusions. Thanks for watching!

  • Enough is enough

  • When in Dallas next time, thus will be a must stop! Looks great!

    • Me too!

  • Ben - You're awesome!

  • I love Korean food, but can we get more uploads from other Asian cultures :(

    • Donnie R agree. Chinese and taiwanese comes to mind.

    • Vietnam would be nice. A lot of Vietnamese food in TX and CA

    • dhsu619 I understand that. But this channel has been oversaturated with this series. If you want people to truly appreciate videos like this you have to give a high variety of other different videos so it doesn't feel like we're watching the same this over and over every week. They post other videos but it seems to always feel like this K-Town series comes up most often

    • done with korea

    • Umm, this series is called K-town...

  • I eat there all the time in Dallas!!

  • Love their intersecting take on food! Always evolving the flavours and mixing cultures of flavours together. Looks delicious af

  • Is it really all American if there are that many Korean influences

    • At the same time tho, America has always been a conglomeration if cultures, and has never really had its own traditional cuisine, unless you really think about the food Native Americans ate way back in the day. Since America was America, it was always a mix of food from places like England or Ireland, from the Russians and the Dutch. And I think that mixing food influences like in this burger is something distinctly American.

    • Ocean I’m not sure you understand what fusion is. Fusion food is essentially the combination of different cuisines. The inherent definition of fusion food is discordant with the concept of all-American. All American insinuates that it’s just that - American- or free from foreign influences. And nowadays fusion food isn’t this revolutionary new thing fusion food is basic af in contemporary society

    • It's called American-Mexican-Korean fusion. Fusion restaurants are common & everywhere !! Never heard of it? Basically American & Mexican food classics like Burgers, tacos, nacho, tater tots & onion rings with korean flavor elements added. It is "Hybrid food" and "Unconventional". Yes it often shocks people are who "basic" and "traditional AF", lmao.

    • the burger is an american thing. they're adding korean things to something that's distinctly american.

  • I’m so sick of this series
