Shake Shack in Seomeyon, Busan
There are a lot of good places to eat in Samjung Tower in Seomyeon, but Shake Shack is the trendiest.
One of the top hamburger chains in the United States, it is the first of its branches to open in Busan and Korea’s first Shake Shack outside of Seoul.
Located on the first floor, up to 142 diners can fill the burger joint’s tables. Featuring great food and art by renowned artist Julian Opie, Shake Shack brings its classic offerings to the city, including their Shack Stack and Smoke Shack burgers.
The restaurant also gives its own take on local food, adding to their menu a dessert made with almonds, sunflower seeds, peanut caramel sauce and vanilla custard, akin to hotteok (a dough pancake filled with honey, sugar, cinnamon, and nuts).
To drink, Shake Shack offers the craft beer of Busan’s local Gorilla Brewing. A standard Shake Shack burger costs 6,900 won, fries run 3,900 won and milkshakes go for 5,900 won.
Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
