For the past few weeks, since Winter started, we’ve been fuku (Japanese for “lucky”) to have the Fuku Burger Truck across the street us during the daytime. Every Tuesday through Thursday, at approximately 11am to 3pm, Fuku Burger has been parking their truck & slanging us Egg Burgers with extra Crack Sauce next to the Bank of America parking lot on Spring Mountain Rd, off Wynn Dr. I stopped through the other day to pick up my usual Knyew-Ku Burger & shoot the shizz with co-owner/head chef Mags & the rest of the Fuku Gang.
In a little bit over a year, Fuku Burger has managed to become a major staple in the Las Vegas community. It’s amazing to see how many friends, fans & followers they’ve accumulated since their opening in Summer 2010. I think it’s very safe to say that Fuku Burger is definitely the people’s choice for one of THE best burgers in Las Vegas, hands down!
KNYEW-KU BURGER: Fuku beef patty, grilled kimchi, bacon, crushed prawn crackers, katsu sauce & their signature Crack Sauce. This is a part of KNYEW history & it’ll remain one of my favorites till the end.
CHICKEN KATSU: Deep fried panko encrusted chicken, shredded cabbage with katsu sauce & wasabi mayo. This is pretty much my go-to-sandwich whenever I want to change it up from my usual Knyew-Ku Burger or Tamago “Egg” Burger.
NAGA DOG: Spicy sausage, grilled kimchi, diced onions, wasabi mayo, topped with crispy nori. Once in a while I feel like having a wiener (no homo). And when I’m craving some sausage (no homo), I go for a Naga Dog.
GARLIC FRIES with CRACK SAUCE: I don’t know what they season these fries with & I couldn’t even tell ya’ what’s in their Crack Sauce. The whole thing is a big fuckin’ mystery but it’s a must-have with any of their burgers. Remember to always order extra Crack Sauce!
I got a chance to snap a few shots of the Fuku-Mobile while it was getting washed next to the Fuku Burger Truck. Almost makes wish I knew how to drive…almost (yes, I’m that typical New Yorker who never learned to drive).
Here’s a video we made last year during our 3 Year Anniversary, when we teamed up with Fuku Burger for a block party celebration & first created the Knyew-Ku Burger. I love the scene where Neva‘s breaking down which Fuku Burger is his favorite. Can’t believe it’s already been another year, crazy. Until next time Knyewtrons…Crooked aka Korean Blow aka Coke Hane signing out!
