Where to go for BURGERS with 'Hot Pepper Relish'?
Back in the 80's (some) Burger places/joints used red
Sweet/Hot Pepper Relish. The Burgers were sooooooooo good!
Any places still out there that uses (red) 'Hot Pepper Relish'???
Please tell meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee where????! (smile :~)
Big Mike's, the excellent Philly cheesesteak place on Main Street in El Segundo, cooks up either sweet or hot peppers for the cheesesteaks. They also make a burger. I'm sure you could combine the two there. And by the way, they also serve fantastic onion rings in a light batter.
At Bay Cities Deli on Lincoln in Santa Monica, one of the things that makes the Godmother special (besides their incomparable rolls) is the pepper relish. I get a mix of the sweet or medium and the hot. I'm sure they would sell some by the container. I've asked them whether their pepper relish included olives, as I suspected, but they insist that it does not.
Yes, I had these Burgers in L.A.
The name 'Hamburger City' all
around town was a Hot Spot for the best burgers.
There's still a place in the Hood on 51st and Central
I can't rememeber the name of the place,
but I'm afraid to go on that side of town these days.
(lol! Well, sorry!).
But I've heard when some want a quick fix, they'll still go
for a homemade 'red hot/sweet relish burger. (maye I will too?).
Thanks for the info link!
It's on the South East corner. (It's a small burger joint).
Owned by the original owners.
It's been there for years. Back when my Mom was in school.
(the 50's) I think I might go by there this weekend and get the exact
address and name. I'm sure it's on Central Ave- It's North of Slauson
in the low 50's block. I believe 51st street?
(If you happen to stop by there before I do-
just ask before you order if they still use the Hot Relish?
It's soooo GOOD!
I'm back with no visible bullet holes. The place that Pineapple099 is referring to is called Snack Shack and is on the North / East corner of 57th and Central. According to their signage, they've apparently been there since 1941, have hot relish and the original owners have returned for a grand re-opening. I've been curious about this place for a long time but, have never stopped. I was there a 1/2 hour before they were open today so, I was not able to partake. Next time thru though.
Seriously, the hood isn't nearly as bad now as it was during the peak of the crack epidemic.
I beleive it is called Jamaican relish. 26 Beach used to do a burger with the stuff years ago. I actually was talking to the owner back in the summer and he said he had some new/old burgers coming back, he was going to try to mix things up every few months. I think he is about dues since his last overhaul in october.
