Maloney's Irish Pub in Seoul; a Great Itaewon Irish Bar with the Best Burger in Seoul


The best burger in Seoul 

needs all this Guinness drawn at this popular Irish bar in Seoul.

Maloney's Irish Pub in, Seoul (Kyeongnidan, Itaewon 2-dong), is an Irish bar that was one of the sponsors of the Angels Ride for Charity. This is one of the best examples of an Irish bar in Seoul and wonderfully, serves the best burger in Seoul.

Brendan Maloney of Maloney's Irish Pub and Grill in Itaewon, Seoul supplied us with five 10,000 won vouchers for his Irish bar in Seoul. These weren't raffled but were distributed among some of the volunteers. We hope that our hard working volunteers use them to have the best burger in Seoul. Many people from Daejeon travel to Itaewon to purchase some hard-to-find items and we hope they will go to this great Irish bar in Itaewon. There are many places that serve burgers in Itaewon but Maloney's really does have the best burgers in Itaewon and by extraction, the best burgers in Seoul. Thank you Maloney's for helping us reward some people who came out to help us.  A great Irish bar in Seoul helping us out in Daejeon. It's sad that there is an Irish bar in Seoul but not one in Daejeon. We would also love to have the best burgers in Korea in Daejeon as well.

Constant Reader, please visit Maloney's Irish Pub in Kyeongnidan, the Maloney's that is on the second floor above 7-11 (there is a pretender at street level.) Kyeongnidan is the neighborhood near Noksapyeong station, one station over from Itaewon.

Maloney's serves the best burger in Itaewon, which is also the best burger in Seoul, which also means that it is the best burger in Korea. Nothing against Busan, but the best burger in Seoul must be better than the best burger in Busan because Busan blows.  Maloney's uses buns made to spec by a nearby bakery, with fresh cut, double blanched fries as an accompaniment. If you don't want fries with the best burger in Itaewon you can have hand-battered onion rings, another reason why this is the best burger in Seoul. In 2012 Maloney's burgers were selected as the Best Burger in Seoul by 10 Magazine and the Best Burger in Itaewon by Groove magazine. Awesome stuff if you consider how stiff the competition is to grab the coveted title of best burger in Itaewon. If you miss the pub experience from back home, Brendan delivers it with stunning panache. An Irish bar in Seoul that reminds you of home.

Kyeongnidan is the neighborhood that has the street that leads up to the Hyatt Hotel. Maloneys's is the only Irish bar in Seoul that is on this street. All the other burgers on this street are mediocre, only Maloney's has the best burger in Seoul, and nothing against those other guys in Itaewon, but they aren't that good. I know Maloney's is in Kyungnidan but it is listed as Itaewon 2-dong, so they qualify for the best burger in Itaewon. Hate to be snotty but if you are the best burger in Itaewon, you are the nest burger in Seoul. If you are the best burger on Seoul, you are the best burger in Korea. Busan doesn't even count when it comes to a competition of the best burger in Korea.
