Yesterday I got a sneak peek of a new burger chain, Burgerim, that will be opening up in Hollywood in about two weeks.
The chain hails from Israel, and they are serving up some DELICIOUS mini burgers with high quality meat and ingredients. I know you’re probably thinking great; just what LA needs another burger chain, but having tried these burgers I really think they bring something different to the table!Located in Hollywood on the corner of Melrose and Western, the restaurant has a very open space with open exposed ceilings. There’s a huge island type bar right in the middle, and they will be serving beer and cocktails in about two months. The restaurant also plans to be the only burger restaurant in LA that will be delivering, and they won’t be going through a third party delivery service. Instead all orders will be delivered by their own in house staff.
“Always more than one”.
For me what sets Burgerim a part from any other burger restaurant that I’ve been to is the focus on the patty! They have 11 different choices of meat, and they are all charboiled! ELEVEN! And because of the mini size you can order them in pairs or triplets and get whatever patty you like. Each patty is about 2.8 oz of meat so you’re getting more than enough. Did I mention that it comes with fries and a drink as well? This made my combo dreams come true! Seriously! I love a place that allows you to mix and match.
I’m not ashamed to admit that while I didn’t try all 11 patty options, I did try about 5 or 6! My favorite patty hands down was the Merguez. The merguez is a spicy beef patty, and it gave me some true Mediterranean vibes. I don’t know how they get so much flavor into such a tiny little patty. Coming a close second was the chorizo patty. I got it with cheddar cheese, and it was delicious! They also have a vegan/veggie patty that’s made with lentils, carrots, squash, and seasoning. The patty is held together with breadcrumbs and it was super moist.
Look out for official opening in about two weeks!
