I’ve learned something in the last few years. I love salads. I love burgers. I do not love burgers on salads.
This is a beef patty with Roasted Tomato from Stout Burgers in Hollywood. On its own, great. Juicy. Tender. But the greens underneath were drenched in an overly-acidic dressing which negated that enjoyment.
The cheesy fries, however, I can get behind.
I’m not really sure a bun would’ve salvaged the experience; when I took a bite from Abe’s veggie burger, the bread was a bit too stiff. I will say, though, that our waitress was really cool. And it was a good place to watch The Dodger’s game – the main reason we went.
A podcast I really enjoy listening to is Down and Dirty Kitchen. In every episode, they ask their guest what their favorite burger (on that day) would be. Quite often, Stout comes up. I don’t know if I came on an off day, but I do know I’m not a fan of their salad burgers – both in the name (“Skinny Style?!?” Boo!) and the flavor.
