Lotteria! The last time I visited Korea, which was about four months ago (so fast!), I had the chance to try out Lotteria not just once, but twice. It was a pleasant surprise, as I don't recall seeing the restaurant during my previous trip to the country.

What is Lotteria? Lotteria is a well-known fast-food chain, particularly popular in Korea and Taiwan. As someone who enjoys exploring new culinary experiences, I found Lotteria's menu to be refreshing as I got bored of McDonald's in Malaysia. Overall, the discovery of Lotteria during my recent trip to Korea has been a delightful experience, and I look forward to exploring the chain further on future visits to the country.

When visiting the popular Korean fast-food chain Lotteria, one of the first things you'll notice is its menu offerings. While some items may feature Korean-language descriptions like "Hanwoo Bulgogi" or "Red & White," the overall menu is generally quite clear and easy to navigate, even for non-Korean speakers.

Much like the ubiquitous McDonald's, Lotteria offers customers the option to order a la carte or in pre-set meal combinations. This flexibility allows diners to customise their Lotteria experience to suit their preferences and appetites.

Since I can't recall the exact specifics of our Lotteria order, let me paint a rough picture of what we enjoyed. Lotteria's menu boasts shrimp burgers, a rarity in our local landscape, and they certainly hit the mark with their savoury offerings. The shrimp burgers were surprisingly delightful and their rendition of the classic "McChicken" left quite an impression – the meat was exceptionally tender. As for the Bulgogi, it appeared to be a beef burger, and it did not disappoint. 

Sigh. I miss Lotteria. :(
