Cupbap Burger - West End

I have always wondered why the Robson Public Market has not been more of a thriving concern. It always seems nearly empty and barely occupied and yet it is in such a densely populated area. That doesn't mean that there hasn't been some good eats available there from time to time. Cupbap Burger is an example of that. It is accessible from Robson Street as well as from inside the market.
I was intrigued by the whole Korean Burger concept and so decided to to check it out.
So the bun is rice pressed into a mold. It looks like you should be able to pick it up and eat it like a burger. This was not my experience. It might have worked that way if I had kept the wrapper around part of it but I didn't and it fell apart. This is the bulgogi burger and frankly, it was delicious, but I ate it like bulgogi and rice. 
I also ordered Japchae which came with more bulgogi and rice. The noodles were excellent! Altogether, I paid about $15 dollars and took at least half of the food home for dinner. A smoking bargain and delicious! Its a pretty tiny place but you can sit along one wall (facing yourself in the mirror if that is not a problem). Or you can sit outside. I think most of their business might be take out.
The owner / chef works in full view and was by himself when I was there.We had a good laugh about my ordering too much as it was my first visit and didn't expect such generous servings. Definitely a hidden gem!
