Anybody hit The Tripel up yet (Playa Del Rey)?
I'm no burger connoisseur like some of you fellas, but I feel they have a pretty solid burger - The Tripel Burger (Duck confit, pork and aged beef, onion brioche bun, truffle pecorino, arugala, house made apricot jam). The apricot jam kind of overpowered the burger and made it extra sweet, but I really like sweet + meat.
With the burger, I also got:
Baked Potato Dumplings (Chimay Grand Cru sauce, tangy oyster mushrooms)
Country Duck Pate (House pickles, fig mustard, grilled bread)
Sweet Potato Tots (w/ smoked almond chimichuri and spiced aioli)
What I ordered and they never got out to me (just to give you another example of what they serve):
Red Curry Cocnut Milk Buscuits (Orange blossom honey and clotted cream)
And no, I didn't memorize all this. I grabbed a menu on the way out.
Pretty enjoyable experience. Beer selection was kind of small compared to other places, but everything I tried was good. I just wish the space was bigger (as far as seating goes)...think Santa Monica Father's Office.
