Photos: Try This New Fried Chicken Sandwich With Honey Sriracha On Bright Red Buns
GD Bro Burger, the folks famous for their bright-red raspberry-flavored hamburger buns, are opening their first location in Los Angeles County, in Signal Hill on Saturday, February 6. This is the second brick-and-mortar location for founders Mark Gerald Cruz and Kevin Bobby Nguyen—along with co-owner Andy Nguyen, of Afters Ice Cream fame—with the original GD Bro Burger location in Santa Ana. Known for their millennial friendly décor and Instagram-worthy food, the restaurant will also be debuting a new burger called the Bojangoals' that will only be available at this particular location. The Bojangoals' Burger features juicy, marinated fried chicken topped with honey Sriracha and cole slaw, all slathered on their signature raspberry bun.
"We really wanted to do something special that would make this location unique. Our Bojangoals' Burger is just that. This will definitely encourage the folks from OC to make the drive here just to try it and those from L.A. to stop by," Cruz told LAist.
GD Bro Burger favorites such as the Korean BBQ Kalbi Poutine Fries, the Italian Stallion Burger (mozzarella sticks, pepperoni, spinach, pizza sauce, and ranch dressing on their signature raspberry bun), and the Consuela Fries (pico del gallo, avocado and pepper jack cheese), will still be prominently featured on the Signal Hill menu. The signature Popeye drink, made with fresh spinach, pineapples, and lime will also be a staple at the new location.
GD Bro Burger is located at 1798 East Willow Street in Signal Hill, (714) 595-1768.
