The Counter

1/3 pound beef burger with gruyere cheese, hard boiled egg, black olives, roasted chiles, honey cured bacon and caramelized onion marmalade on a toasted English muffin.

For the past six months or so, burgers have been on our minds. Not just eating burgers, but exploiting them. About bringing a new class of burger joint to the denizens of Baltimore. So when we zipped by The Counter in Marina del Rey, we had to go back and check it out.

I really wasn't hungry, but I had to taste it and ordered it "to go." It took quite awhile to get the burger and then we drove it home to Hermosa Beach and waited for Un-G and Christine to arrive before tearing into it so it had cooled down quite a bit. But the flavors were good and it's got the mind churning for new ideas for our Project Burger.
