Burger @ The Golden State, Los Angeles

August 15, 2011

Excellent burger, one of my 5 faves in LA. This is a little 10-table joint where you order at the counter, collect your own utensils and condiments, then sit and wait with a number. It’s a little pricey for what is essentially a counter joint, but the burger was so good I can forget the money.

I took on the standard burger, which was beef, cheddar, arugula, aioli and ketchup (I subtracted the bacon). The bun was glazed and the whole thing was easy to handle – didn’t fall apart. Flavor combinations were great, especially with the slight bite of arugula. I had a persian cucumber side, which was well-dressed and tasty. I probably wouldn’t order the combo again as it comes with arugula, and there’s only so much greenery one man can take.

I’ll be back.
