Lucky Devil

A friend wrote to me yesterday, "Do something that makes you smile." Well, ordering the larger than life toasted pecan shake at Lucky Devil on Hollywood Blvd. certainly did just that. My friend compared it to eating a pint and a half of Hagan Daaz butter pecan ice cream, only better and, at $4.50, cheaper. Served in a large chilled metal malt shaker with a mound of fresh whipped cream and toasted pecans it instantly became one of my favorite desserts in the city. Served by our sweet and sassy server, she explained that they used a frozen custard with Madagascar vanilla bean as the base. The Kobe burger for $12.50 topped with caramelized onions and a garlic aioli and an optional Vermont white cheddar for $1.75 was delicious; and the accompanying fries had the right requisite saltiness and crunch. My friend had the same burger and enjoyed the Spreger's root beer on tap. We finished with one of the gigantic vanilla cupcakes in the display case which left us understandably full. We even saw the devil himself polishing glass and keeping a watchful eye on his lair.
