Everyone has a right to their opinion. I am no exception. And it is my opinion that Barney's Gourmet Burgers, which is actually an expansion into Los Angeles from the socialist haven of Northern California's Bay Area, makes the best burger in Los Angeles.
You think I'm just going to show you the burger? No. You have to wait. This is the inside of Barney's, which Barbie and I walked to today.
How lucky do we consider ourselves that we live walking distance from here? Not lucky at all. It is not luck. It is design.
There she is. The Hickory Turkey with blue cheese in place of the standard Jack. When the flavors of the blue cheese, the barbecue sauce, the bacon, and the turkey patty come together, it is a festival of pure joy. Sure, you can get it with a beef patty, but I prefer this.
And I will have you know that I have eaten a few of these and continued to lose weight, because it arrives and I immediately cut in half and only eat half. I take my time, enjoying the iced tea between every bite, and half is all that I need.
It is a serious joy in my life to know that the second half sits in the fridge as I type.
And that, my friends, is the best burger in Los Angeles.
(Yes, this was shared due to everyone loving the food pics from Europe. It is only fair to share great meals at home, too.)
