For those who are hip to real food, there is a very welcome addition to your available places to eat healthy.
Prepare to have your taste buds dazzled by food that is as old-fashioned as it is modern; food without additives, foreign protein, and delicious in the way it used to be before ‘modern science’.
Without a cheesy, cutesy gimmick name, it is simply called the Burger Lounge and has 6 in LA [2 more coming soon] and 8 locations in SD [1 more set to open soon]. OC and LV, you’re next.
You will find plenty of items that are appealing, including some temporary sandwiches like the lamb burger, which is being featured currently.
The modern styled, hip restaurant serves old-fashioned food, that is non-GMO, grass-fed beef, sodas that contain no HFCS with free refills, and cook their sides in 100% GMO free Sunflower oil. Even the ketchup used there is listed as having no HFCS.
Besides the delicious food and drinks available from the Burger Lounge, the staff, all young and bright-eyed, are eager to explain what’s available and proud of the quality food served, as they should be.
Being a simple man, I had the “Classic” which consisted of organic American cheese, organic ketchup, mustard, pickles, chopped onion, and the grass-fed, single-sourced, delicious beef in a sandwich that looked like it just came off the picture menu unlike the bait ‘n’ switch menu pics at junk food national eateries. It was superb and very filling with bread baked fresh daily from dough made fresh daily. [See lead photo]
But taste isn’t the only thing that comes from eating the ‘no junk – all food’ menu items. It is how you feel after you finish. Real food fills you up with less and you stay full longer. The burger I had at lunch kept the hungriness away the rest of the night, except for some chocolate I snacked on just before bedtime to soothe a scratchy throat.
