Watch out LA... There may be a new "best" burger in town. I got to stop in today and try what I must say was a really, really delicious burger.
Plus the space is modern, hip and fun. Located on the Cahuenga corridor, they are making quite the statement by opening just a block down from Umami, and I think that statement is, "We're bringing it!"
They serve beer, wine and sake and will be making some really interesting cocktails out of these normally unhindered alcohols. Today I tried a beer with apple sake, and although I am not normally a beer drinker, I loved how the sake lightened up the beer and gave it a hint of apple!
I tried the fuku burger and the chicken katsu. Both were awesome. I asked for ketchup before even biting into the burger (as I unabashedly am a ketchup fiend) and took my initial bite with no ketchup. To my surprise and delight this burger needs no extra sauce. It's perfect just the way it is. I particularly fell in love with the bun. Super soft and oh by the way, it's made in house. So are all their sauces, as like I said, they are bringing it.
The chicken sandwich was also awesome. It came with a hefty helping of slaw, which gave it the perfect crunch. And again was served on that magical bread. Yum.
There will be 6 burgers, plus a gourmet sausage and a rice bowl.
They officially open on Tuesday. Burgers are $8 and pitchers of beer can be had for $15... Quite the deal if you ask me! Plus they'll be open til 4am.
