I may be obsessed with superfoods, healthy meal prep, kombucha, and the concept of glow bowls, but deep inside, when no one is watching, I’m a sucker for processed cheese.
Oh, sure, the Velveeta block might just really be a large chunk of plasticized cancer. I’m aware that what I consider to be cheese fries might actually be scared potatoes drowning in orangey goo. But I don’t care. I love it, and it loves me. I smother my cheese fries in ketchup, and I’m brought back to memories of the town pool or watching the first season of All That. No one can take that away from me.
Needless to say, when I came across the cheese fries at Cry Burger, my arteries contracted, but my smile reached from ear to ear.
I didn’t expect magical cheese fries. I initially came here because I saw a bunch of posts for it, and it was a 10 minute walk from my apartment. I love not having to travel far to try a new food place.
Apparently, Cry Cheeseburger is the Korean version of In-N-Out. As a Jersey girl, I’ve sadly never experienced it. While everyone raves about their “west coast best coast”, I have my bagels.
Just from looking at the outside, Cry Burger is super cute.
I go downstairs and I order the Set A: a single cheeseburger, fries, and a soda. I expect it will be good, but then again, I don’t know what to expect. The burger was pretty good over all.
But that’s not the star of today’s post. It’s all about the cheese fries.
When my order came, I realized my set didn’t include cheese on my fries. I asked and paid extra for it. I just expected a pump or two, but they came back with this magic. It’s melted cheese, caramelized onions, and animal sauce. And apparently, this is a direct copy cat of In-N-Out. New Jersey, you have failed me! How did I not know about this?
It is safe to say that these copycat cheese fries are my new favorite binge food.
Cry Cheeseburger directions: Samseong Station, Exit 1. Walk straight for about two minutes. It’s on your right.
