Play With Your Food: Name That Burger, #8
Here's this week's edition of Name That Burger, in which you guess the venue of a hamburger based on a picture (below) and a brief description. For everyone who guessed
BLD for burger #7, you were right. (Yes, I know the salt and pepper shakers were a giveaway.) This one is a more basic rendition than some of our previous burgers, Michael Mina's Kobe burger at XIV, say, and comes in the form of a particularly juicy--they will actually make it rare for you if you ask--beef patty, 1000 Island dressing, tomatoes, pickles and a hefty wedge of iceberg lettuce. Optional grilled onions, here included. Wrapped in paper, with fries. Ketchup in the form of an old-school bottle of Heinz. Order up. And remember, you can always tweet your guess @LAWeeklyFood, unless you feel inclined to rhapsodize in more than 140 characters. If so, comment below.
Notice the atavistic charm
