Little Fork

The Boy and I are still plugging away at the Burger Quest (which began in 2011!)  But it seems that every time we check another burger off our list, a new burger joint opens claiming to have "the best burgers in Los Angeles."  Thus is our siren song.  Faced with such a bold statement, we have no choice but to add the burger to our conquest list.  It's a tough job, but someone has to do it, right?

The latest in the Burger Quest saga is Hollywood's Little Fork.  A really cool joint over on Wilcox, Little Fork has an east-coast style menu, with delicious fish dishes, fresh ingredients and creative cocktails, all lovingly presented in a casual, laid-back atmosphere that was perfect for a late Sunday brunch.

The burger is actually a part of their brunch menu, and I don't actually know that it's fair to rate this against our other burgers, because this was altogether different.  Aptly named the Good Morning Burger, it's served on a bun of flapjacks, with linguiça sausage, a runny egg, and maple syrup.  So the sausage doubles as the meat patty, and with the flapjacks and maple syrup, this burger seemed more McMuffin than Big Mac.  And that's not a bad thing.  

The Good Morning Burger at Little Fork is delicious.  Hands down one of the best breakfast combinations I've ever tasted.  But it's not, for our quest purposes, a traditional burger.  What I do like about it most is that it challenges the definition of a burger...It takes the concept to new, innovative heights and that in itself is worth congratulating.  But because it's in a league of it's own, it's very difficult to score this particular burger.  (We did any how, because the Boy insists we score everything!)

Because of it's particular qualities, this was not the best traditional burger in LA, but it is a burger I want to have again.  Feel like brunch?  Go to Little Fork and try it!
