You now have significantly more room in which to scarf an absurdly large, deep-fried Mt. Fuji burger at the Katsu Burger in Georgetown. The restaurant unveiled an expanded dining area yesterday that greatly increases its seating capacity. There are also four flat-screen televisions for watching Mariners and Seahawks games.
Katsu Burger started the expansion about a month ago, managing to stay open in its original spot during construction.
The chainlet has been growing in many ways lately, opening its latest location in late December on Capitol Hill. You may recall that Katsu Burger was once extinct, only to be resurrected by a new owner, Stephanie Kang. Kang not only breathed new life into the original Georgetown location, but also expanded to Bellevue and Lynnwood before adding the Capitol Hill venue.
Katsu Burger specializes in a fusion menu revolving around patties that are breaded and deep-fried in the katsu method popular in Japan and Hawaii. Though katsu traditionally involves chicken, Katsu Burger takes the practice to new heights by dropping every patty into the deep fryer.
