24 Oct Burger Lounge
Occupying a commanding corner on San Vicente Blvd, Burger Lounge is as great for burgers as it is for people watching. The grass fed burger place is a step up from the fast food joints but still retains the ‘lounge’ feeling of a more upscale restaurant. There are attentive staff, endless refills, fresh pepper tableside. The menu is compact but comprehensive, with a selection to cater to all tastes – from the classic burger and turkey burger option, to healthy salads with locally sourced, mostly organic ingredients.
The grass fed burger is the star, however, and founder Dean Loring, who you can read about more on page 11, is a great believer in delivering a stylish, simple burger with the best possible ingredients. The beef is from Sun Fed Ranch in Northern California, where they practice traditional farming methods. And it shows in the taste. Together with R+D and Bandera, it has made my list for the best flavored burger with a great consistency of texture to the meat.
Nutritional information is posted on their website if you want to know the amount of calories, salt and protein ratio.
The two month old restaurant itself is green certified, and the innovative design is by MYID Design – the tables are made from empty soda bottles, the tiles are recycled and the cooking oil is recycled and used as biodiesel to power the roving burger van. The aforementioned truck is available for catering and makes a great choice for parties.
Feedback has generally been good, judging from the recent Yelp reviews. It’s definitely a place to try if you like to feel good about eating burgers.
