eats - plan check

stopped by plan check - a relatively new gastropub located on the japanese-centric section of sawtelle - for dinner tonight and had a hell of a meal. started things off right with an IPA from san diego's green flash and an order of their stuffed mushroom, which consisted of a roasted portobello, swiss cheese fondue, crispy kale (melt in your mouth unreal) and steak sauce.

but the revelation of the night belonged to the chef's favorite burger, which was seconded by our server. try to picture cheese two ways, bacon two ways (regular and in a bacon jam spread on the top bun), ketchup leather (picture a fruit roll-up, except made out of their homemade ketchup), sunny fried egg and hot sauce. and it's served in a mini cast iron grill, so one gets to sop up the remains of the burger with the spillover of the runny egg.

the FO burger at father's office has remained my perennial #1 in southern california, but the chef's favorite has vaulted past short order's nancy's backyard burger and golden state's colorado lamb burger into the #2 slot, it's that good.
