Katsu Burger, the local chainlet with a reputation for massive burgers with deep-fried patties and Japanese-inspired flavors, is adding a new location in Federal Way. The Eater 38 member announced the news on Facebook, saying it is taking over a former Stacks burgers location.
The Federal Way outpost at 1706 S 320th St will mark the sixth location for the growing company. Katsu Burger was born in Georgetown and now has restaurants in Ballard, Capitol Hill, Lynnwood, and Bellevue.
It’s safe to assume the Federal Way addition will sport a menu similar to the one fans have become accustomed to, with burger 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.
These enormous burgers add sauces like tonkatsu, Japanese mayo, teriyaki, miso honey mustard, curry mayo, and wasabi mayo, and toppings like pineapple, bacon, cabbage, tomatoes, red onions, and pickles. There’s also the towering, deep-fried insanity known as the Mt. Fuji burger, made with two katsu beef patties. Only the Ballard location departs from this model slightly, serving a sushi menu served alongside the burgers.
