Just a quick intro. I was sitting in a Coffee Bean recently and wondered what I could blog about. I’m not a foodie in any sort of way, but I do love me a nice cheeseburger and some fries. My arteries don’t agree with this, but I only have one life.
I’m sure that I can draw a few readers out of the fellow burger lovers here in Southern California. I’ve eaten at several places already but I will do my best to make fresh visits so I can give all of you an idea of what makes this burgerholic tick. I’ll be headed to QSRs (Carl’s Jr., In-N-Out, etc…) and traditional restaurants.
If you have any suggestions for places for me to try (I’m still new to LA), feel free to leave me a comment.
I’ve never been really big into exotic toppings on my burgers. I tend to keep things simple: meat, cheese, condiments. I have never put mayonnaise or onions on anything and I have no plans to do so in the future. Recently, I have experimented with a variety of cheeses primarily because I eat Boca burgers at home and need something to add a little flavor. I won’t touch many of the “secret” sauces that are offered with many burgers simply because they are mayo based. (In-N-Out: I’m sure the spread is delicious. It’s not you, it’s me.)
So, what do I put on my burgers?
-Meat (burger patty)
-Cheese (traditionally American, but I’m open)
-Pickles (depends on the restaurant)
-Meat toppings (bacon and such)
-Mustard (depends on the mood and restaurant)
For those of you out there who say there is no place for ketchup on a burger I implore you to reconsider.
