Bachi Burger takes Pan/Asian dishes to a whole new level with "burgers" who flavors are unparalleled

The Cuisineist is always on the look out for new and exciting dining experiences around the country. We did not have to much further than our own backyard to find Bachi Burger. This little restaurant located south of the famed Las Vegas Strip has been making quite a name for itself so we had to stop in and see what all of the "noise" was about .

Bachi Burger is the inspiration of Chef Lorin Watada, who served as a corporate chef for Roy’s before branching out on his own.

Bachi is an abbreviated term for the word “Hibachi” which refers to a method of Japanese style of grilling. The word bachi also means to treat others how you would like to be treated in return. They lived up to their name on or visit and treated us like family.

Their burgers are inspired from the varied asian influences from the Hawaiian islands. Boba drinks and milkshakes, sodas made in house and Asian style iced teas, milk teas and coffees were an obvious pairings with their unique burgers and sandwiches. The beer menu features local domestic microbrews ithat could match up with all of the unique flavors their dishes explode with.

Bachi Burger is worth the trip across town to try some interesting Burgers with a Far East Flair. New to the Las Vegas area, this small note worthy restaurant has been causing a stir in the Vegas food scene. From a rather low brow review from a local food critic, to high praises from area chefs, all we can say is try this place to formulate your own opinion of this unique restaurant

We had time to visit with the General Manager and partner, Guy Imperial. We went on several occasions and were pleasantly surprised at the various entrees and appetizers that we shared.

One of our favorites was the Kalbi Burger with its mixture of ground beef and pork with the essence or garlic and ginger, chili paste and soy formed into a juicy burger that was topped with a ko-chu jang mayo and green onions and house made tart but tasty Kim Chee. We also delighted in the delicious Parmesan garlic fries with a drizzling of truffle oil. These were addicting to say the least; but worth the extra work out at the end of the week.

There are not only unique burgers to choose from on the menu, but pork and seafood dishes as well. The Crusty Crab is a pan roasted crab cake topped with lettuce, tomato, and avocado, with fried onions, mango chutney and tarragon remoulade. The sweetness of this dish would please any one in search of a crab cake that embraces a burger like mouth full but at a new level of culinary expertise.

For our readers who want to try something much more exciting than mere “burger joint” come to Bachi Burger for a experience where you can embrace the Korean and Vietnamese flavors in these uncommon “burgers” in a comfortable and unique setting.

Who knows , the guest at the next table may be one of the many Chefs from very well known strip restaurants that enjoy to stop in as well.
