Today Julia and I went to the famous “AMERICAN DELI” in Hong Dae.
Chef OH is famous for winning the East Western Food Festival. He even won 3 times!!!!
He has also been on the Korean TV program DAL IN on SBS.
He is well known for creating hand made burgers that are created with fresh ingredients and with precise details in his recipes.
“AMERICAN DELI” is located in HONG DAE IP GU (Line #2).
If you exit #8, it can be found easier.
The interior is like a casual burger joint in any neighborhood.
The usual, casual chairs and wooden tables.
The kitchen is open and can be viewed from all angles of the restaurant.
The Chef cooking and staff working is pretty much in full view. You can see them all throughout so you know exactly what you’re getting.
| The Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich
| The Meat Loaf Burger
The Philly Cheese Steak was one of the best I’ve ever had. The meat was very tender and soft. But had enough tension so that it didn’t just fall apart. Just enough chewiness for you to enjoy. The marinated meat had a little bit of spice to it though. More on the black pepper side rather than chili pepper spicy. It wasn’t too strong though, just enough so that the sandwich doesn’t get too dull.
The Meat Loaf Buger. This one is just WOW and a perfect two thumbs up right when you take your first bite. The sauce and the tenderness of the meat just makes a perfect balance that you’ll want to eat it and miss it while you eat it. Know what I mean? It’s like you want more of it while you eat it!!!!
Americal Deli is open from 11:30 AM to 2:30PM (BREAK TIME) then 4 PM to 8 PM.
There are line ups during the weekends so I suggest you get there early.
All burgers come with fries and the price is pretty reasonable too so if you’re in the mood for something AMERICAN, while in HONG DAE, check out AMERICAN DELI!!!!
