Lotteria

 

Coming from our good friends at Lotte, though not exclusive to Korea, this place is still worthy of recommendation on our list! They sell your classic burgers, fries, chicken, etc., but it all tastes unique due to the company having its own variety of options. This restaurant should satisfy your hunger for something different!

Nene Chicken

 

Maybe you've seen some familiar faces advertising for these guys before? Faces, such as NU'EST and SEVENTEEN, maybe? Everyone knows Korea loves its fried chicken, and who can blame them? Some prefer to eat them in a full meal while others like them as Korean snacks at home or while hanging out with friends.

The different spices and sauces are mixed together to prepare each piece of chicken, igniting a burst of flavor in your mouth! Just looking at this Korean food makes your mouth water. Say 'goodbye' to your boring cheat meals!

Mom’s Touch

Named for the same kind of love put into each meal as your mother would put into your sandwiches and packed lunches, this restaurant will not only resolve those burger cravings but make you feel that warm feeling in your heart, much like knowing the love of your mother.

Maybe that's a bit dramatic… Still, Mom's Touch is an excellent place to visit for those cheeky cravings. They even sell some pleasant drinks, such as fruit smoothies and flavored milkshakes, to satisfy that sweet tooth! They are some of the must-try Korean fast food desserts to have. No matter what you like, you'll find something suited for you right here.

They don't just sell the basic cheeseburger and fries, oh no. They sell them with a twist! How do fries with chocolate sound? Or maybe a burger with bulgogi? It's safe to say that eating here in Korea will definitely add that bit of change to your fast food meals!
