Astro Burger, SM west of La Brea. Stopped in on my way home from TJ's; (couldn't wait the 6 blocks to home). Thought I'd just have the fried zucchini, but somehow also asked if they could make a cheeseburger rare, real rare.
The woman said sure; I rolled my eyes and crossed my fingers...ended up with one of the best burgers since I've lived in LA (8 months). Really rare, juicy, not from frozen meat and incredibly tasty.
Maybe not the $9. burger from the Beach Cafe that I love, but hey 1/2 mile from home. Now, if only they made it 2 inches less in diameter and an inch taller...well I can wish.
