I went to Daily King’s Diner in Jeongja with a couple of friends of mine and my first impression was “Wow!” and then as the meal progressed I just felt like it was “meh.” The interior is impressive-it’s on the 5th floor of a building and there are beautiful curved windows to look out of. The concept is “The Original American Dining” and it tries to live up to that moniker. The 50’s white furniture, hot rod red trim, and stainless steel fixings make you feel like you’re in a Quentin Tarantino movie.
It’s a great atmosphere to have a pleasant chat with friends and it’s quiet (something that I’m sure the management is a bit peeved about). Now the food could be better. I mean it’s ok, but if I’m going to spend 16-18,000 on a hamburger then I expect it to be premium. I didn’t feel like it was. I think could have been tastier. I felt like I was eating a frozen preformed burger. It was of ample size but I want the bite of beef mixed with the savoriness of pork and grilled till the fat forms little flavor blisters of goodness.
I guess, I’m too particular with my burgers huh?
Oh, the chili is awesome and so are the french fries. The coleslaw is just like Momma used to make it.^^
