The now-defunct K-Town Burger (Image: Uncle Sam's)

Once upon a time, a restaurant existed in New York that served burgers with an Asian accent. The restaurant, Uncle Sam’s, featured among its offerings something styled the K-Town Burger, which was fashioned out of Galbi beef and dressed with kimchi and fermented bean sauce.

Sadly, Uncle Sam’s went the way of all flesh, relegating the K-Town Burger (and the equally enticing 888 Burger — a shumai patty adorned with Canadian bacon, char-siu bacon, and sriracha mayo) to distant memories.

Happily, we happened across a recipe at Delish for an Asian Sloppy Joe that, if not identical to the K-town Burger, provides a pleasant reminder of the original. The video follows.
