Best Tukrey Burger, and WHY

Hello. I am an incredibly spoiled turkey burger eater. I just moved here from NYC where I lived 2 blocks from Westville (the best turkey burger I've ever eaten). What makes their turkey burger so great is that its made from ground white meat turkey, and they make it at the restaurant.

I know that there are several turkey burger threads already, but no one really seems to discern the burgers themselves. I'm looking for a thick juicy turkey burger that is made in-house preferably from white meat, or a blend of white/dark. None of these weird thin grey patties. I want somethng more like a softball and less like a frisbee.

I went to Umami burger on Vine, but i wasn't really impressed. Their offering was less a turkey burger, and more a flavor concoction utilizing a turkey burger as the main ingredient. I get what Umami is about, but I need the kind of turkey burger that I can eat 2 or 3 times in a week.

Any recommendations or insight are greatly appreciated.

  1. Recently had a very delicious turkey burger at Urth Cafe. It was thick and very juicy. I was impressed. First time I had that burger and would definitely return just for that.

    1. I like the turkey burger The Kitchen in silverlake. It was juicy and a large portion.

        1. I really like the turkey burger at Umami Burger - because it is so juicy and flavorful.

            Is this the one on their menu? Because last time I went (SaMo), they told us about a turkey burger off menu that was a BLTA (I believe), and my friend loved it.

              Their online menu shows a "Turkey Miso Burger" for $11

          2. I like the Burger Stand on Crenshaw in SW Los Angeles because it doesn't taste like turkey--none of that gamey, almost bitter taste. Juicy, too.
