When Gee Ozgen announced his plans for a burger venture in Concord in 2017, almost everyone, ourselves included, was expecting a permanent site for his food truck, Mister Gee. But that’s not Ozgen’s style. Happy Ending still has the same values – simple, not over-the-top burgers – but it's more experimental.
The menu features four stripped-back burgers, Korean-style fried chicken tenders and flavoured lemonades. A popular choice is No Mustard Please, a minimalist cheeseburger with a juicy dry-aged patty, American cheese, caramelised onion, tangy sauce and a toasted and slightly sweetened St. Malo milk bun. For something truer to Ozgen’s experimental side, try the fried chicken burger with kaya (a Southeast Asian coconut jam), pickles and American cheese.
There’s not much space to eat them in the actual restaurant, the all-white tiles and neon-lit takeaway joint is just a few stools and a front bar looking out onto the street.
