Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries To Take Over Irezumi Sushi Spot at South Coast Metro Pointe

If you're paying attention, this is the space left empty by Irezumi Sushi, from the now failed and infamous Mor Project .
The burger chain is actually an offshoot of Broadwalk Fries, a Maryland based chain that made its name selling fries and other boardwalk snacks like funnel cakes and hot dogs.
A glance at their menu sees no surprises. Burgers customizable with toppings like sauteed mushrooms, yadda yadda yadda.
And of course, there will be fries fried in peanut oil (like our friends at Chik-fil-A) and served in a paper cup. But here's something interesting: Since they're out of Maryland, a can of Old Bay is featured prominently on one of their pictures as a possible french fry seasoning.
It's anyone's guess how Old Bay dusted fries and the whole beach-themed enterprise will be received by OC, especially when we've got plenty of home-grown burger joints here.
So let's get the formalities out of the way: TK Burgers, In-N-Out, Fatburger, The Counter meet Boardwalk. Shake hands. Now fight! Fight to the death!
