Like our own David Markland I do relish those moments I nurture the carnivore within. Not a mighty 20 lb burger, but just a simple honest burger.
This beauty is what in my not so humble opinion is an excellent, simple honest burger. A thin patty of ground beef fried up on a well aged and seasoned griddle. The end result is a moist burger with just enough carmelized crunchy bits to elevate it to perfection. Simple seasonings, a tart version of “Thousand Island” and just enough “salad” to make it a tasty mouthful without losing any of the flavor of the burger. The best part of this deal is it is only $2.99 or that piece of heaven between some buns.
I get this burger only once a year as it is on the opposite side of the city. My annual excuse to stop in for burger nirvana is a visit with my tax accountant whom I have used for years who is 3 doors up the street.
The details: George’s Burger, 3101 Lincoln Blvd, Santa Monica CA 90405
Pic by me with the trusty cell phone, doesn’t get bigger and doesn’t really do the burger the justice it deserves.
