The Burger Rush is On
Andrew Hwang and Kevin Lee were one day from opening their first restaurant, specializing in teriyaki bowls, in the Robinson Renaissance, 119 N Robinson Ave., food court when they got notice that this dream was not coming true. Turns out, the neighboring Snow Pea had exclusive rights to Asian food in the long-standing lunch spot for downtowners and weren’t about to give it up for a couple of young upstarts.
Andrew, whose parents own the building that houses Korean House in Midwest City, and Kevin who worked as executive chef of a sushi restaurant in Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay rushed together their burger concept literally overnight.
They chose burgers because they thought it would be easy. They’ve found its been anything but, however, you’d never know by the food that comes across the counter. The menu contains a selection of burgers and sandwiches. You’ll note some “Hawaiian” sandwiches. This is code for teriyaki. I’ve been to Burger Rush twice now, and it’s been memorable each time. The third visit is not far behind.
The first time I stopped by with chef Ryan Parrott where we tried the soft shell crab sandwich and the pork cutlet sandwich with some fries made of potato and sweet potato.
