We kinda just found this restaurant, since our stomachs were growling. I kinda wish we came at night, since we were part of the daily lunch crowd. After scanning the lunch menu, I knew I had to order their signature burger special, which came with a beer. How could you go wrong with beer, burger, and some fries? My friend ordered Gnocchi. My burger, not especially small, had the sweet onions falling off. The sauce was dripping as I was trying inhale it in one breath. I could barely get a good grip - meaning that the burger was so juicy, and not dry, or that the burger was too messy for me to hold. I think both . . . From someone who had had hundreds of burgers over his lifetime, and a body to show for it, this burger did standout. As I continue to document this experience whilst glancing at the pictures of the grilled and gounded dead animal flesh on bread - I remember the tanginess of the sauce. I slightly noticed my friend eyeing the handheld feast with envy, while she stared at her colorless Gnocchi. She tried to keep her composure and pride by declining the bite I had offered her . . . too bad for her.
Anyways. . . who would have thought this little date place would have pretty good burgers? I also just found out that the Counter is opening another restaurant in Pasadena soon on Lake avenue.
