Let's not start talking about pastrami again.

I'd keep expectations in check for Apple Pan. It's decent but I'd try it only if I happened to be in the area.

Ok, I'll give it a shot or have Get Smart proxy the burger taste test for me. The pastrami was too vanilla for me; either go "A#1 Burgers Pastrami #3" greasy style at some place somewhere along the 10 or go Langers. I don't really care about the size as long as it tastes good and stays together.

I'd say that it tastes nothing like In-N-Out, but it is definitely a more traditional, old school burger. You're not going to get a rare burger with high grade meat there - it's nothing like Umami, Golden State, etc.

It's worth going if it is not out of the way, if only because the burgers are good for what they are, and the diner - counter atmosphere is interesting. They serve their drinks in little cone shaped paper cups that come with a metal stand. It has some nice touches. It doesn't hold a candle to most of the burgers mentioned in this thread, but I still like it.

I think their pies are shit, though.

Anyone get a ticket for the gilt warehouse sale? Is it just left over stuff they couldn't sell in the online sales?

Any recs for someone that can do a good job cleaning a wool jacket (and also some alterations?), preferably on the westside (Santa Monica to mid-city/fairfax). I just came across my grandfather's pea coat from the coast guard in WWII. The fit is great except the sleeves are real short, and its got some mold or mildew that needs to be taken care of. Otherwise seems to be in good condition though.

as an aside, I pointed Jason, one of the owners of Golden State, to this thread--he got a real kick out of being called SF-approved for his choice in denim.

I'll have to agree with Rob that the burger at Oinkster was pretty solid. no frills and nothing fancy about it, but solid. +1 on the pastrami being underwhelming

Do we get a discount from Golden State if we mention SF or cuff our jeans?

Unfortunately, I don't think anyone gets a discount there. And Jason doesn't cuff. Still a cool place tho. Anyone gone on Tuesday for the pulled pork? I thought it was pretty quality. Adding some of the jalapeño coleslaw really amped it up.

That's a shame. Steve Arroyo cuffs...

Hate to derail this thread from burger talk, but I've been screaming at the top of my lungs to everyone that will listen about this place in K-town called Ham Ji Park. There are two locations and they specialize in pork ribs, but their cook-it-yourself pork belly, stone pot kim chi rice and pork neck stew are also worth noting. It's on 6th west of Vermont.

If I had some korean friends still I'd go there (0).

Where is the best in-store selection for Aldens in the Los Angeles area? I live in Redondo Beach so it would be nice to find something in the South Bay area, but I would drive pretty far for a particularly outstanding store.

Thanks.
