Ms. Foodie loves living on the Eastside of Los Angeles, if for nothing else, the unique food offerings. The Oinkster is the go-to place for gourmet fast food. Don’t doubt me–it does exist.
Chef Andre Guerrero whips up “high-quality American classics”, and he does a good job of it. Every year, the Oinkster has a “Burger Week” with unique and awesome offerings for seven days. There’s even a contest for free swag if you are able to come in all 7 days and eat all 7 burgers. Unfortunately, Ms. Foodie was only able to sample two–but they were well worth the trip!
Wednesday’s Burger was “Burgerlord of the Rings”: One burger to rule them all. Five ounces of beef patty, homemade Onion Rings, Sriracha Cream Cheese, Pineapple Ring & Teriyaki Sauce on a Bagel Bun.
It was the bomb-diggity!
On Thursday, Mr. Foodie and I hopped on over for “The Weed Eater”: a half pound Burger, Jalapeño Bacon, Cheddar, Funyuns, Garlic Aioli and seared Pulled Pork (in Mosh Pit BBQ Sauce).
Mr. Foodie gave it a 9.5 out of 10.
Unfortunately, once Burger Week is done, so are those particular specialties. But fear not Burger Lovers, the Oinkster offers a specialty burger every month, as well as their signature burger, “The Royale”: a 1/3 pound Nebraska Angus patty cheeseburger with bacon, chili AND pastrami, plus dill pickles, onions, tomato, lettuce and 1000 Island dressing. You can choose your cheese: American or sharp cheddar. For another .75 cents, add some gruyere.
Well worth the caloric intake.
