In-N-Out Burger (California)

In-N-Out California

My recent trip to California has been nothing short of spectacular. Good weather and open roads do wonders for the soul and appetite, and I admit, I’ve let myself go. Over the course of a week, I had more than a month’s worth of my usual intake of red meat.
I’ve not felt an ounce of guilt eating at In-N-Out though. Three things I love about In-N-Out

  1. The beef. High quality. Never frozen.
  2. The fries. Freshly cut to order.
  3. The menu. Burgers + Fries + Drinks. That’s it.

For a late dinner I ordered up a double double (two patties and two cheese), which contains their special sauce, a thousand island type dressing with mayonnaise, kind of like a fancier mayo+ketchup combo. Bun was toasted, adding an extra dimension to the taste. I usually slather my burgers with ketchup to mask the taste of dry beef, but there was no need here.

The fries, cut from fresh potatoes in front of our eyes, did not taste greasy, and each bite has a lot more substance than most restaurants.

Its hard to imagine this is fast food. A must try if you visit California.

psst, there is a secret menu.

Vera’s Burger Shack – Burgers on the Beach

Vera's Burger ShackSpring is in Vancouver’s air. The cherry blossoms are budding, the temperature is slowly rising, and the rain is finally letting up. With that, I decided to spend a couple of my Easter long weekend hours at Kitsilano Beach.

Vera's Burger Shack I left home with an appetite. Since it wasn’t Good Friday anymore, I decided to pick up a big meaty burger at Vera’s Burger Shack. Although Vera’s has franchised itself out to many locations across Vancouver, their burgers are closer to your do-it-yourself backyard barbeque burgers than to your boring McD’s offerings. They better be: the Classic Vera Burger I ordered was $5.69. Their fancier burgers are in the $7 – $9 range.

The restaurant’s decor really does look like a shack, complete with picnic tables and corrugated metal walls. Not bad for a fast-food joint actually. However, I chose to takeout and picked a comfy log on nearby Kitsilano Beach instead.

Yummy burger. Great view. Bring on summer.
