The Golden State

We celebrated some golden things last night…


Crazy Rich Asians on audio


…and a blog birthday over burgers at The Golden State.


Mine was the Harris Ranch beef with cheddar, glazed applewood smoked bacon, arugula, aioli, and ketchup…


…also tried their veggie patty – with avocado, lettuce, red onion, tomato, and ketchup.


Both were excellent – as were the Fried Sweet Potato Wedges…


…dipped in 4 sauces – aioli, ketchup, spicy mustard, and curry.



This was my third attempt to eat here – the last few times it was too crowded/they were closed, so I’m glad we finally got a chance to experience it – especially after their feature on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.


P.S. – I didn’t have any, but they also serve my favorite gelato!

    After seeing this post, I really had to look at your “About” page. Doesn’t just that look too sinful? Then there’s that gelato below.
