Belcampo Cheeseburger

Do it.

$12.50, no fries. 1/3 lb ("5.5" oz), grass fed, dry aged (21 days) from cows grow (hopefully) in Cali, on a 10K acre ranch, run by an ex Slow Food ED. Topped with some caramelized onions, 2 sheets of butter leaf, cheddah, sesame brioche bun (which wasn't too sweet). Comes with a side of aioli, which it didn't need. It leaned towards the salty and loose side

It's a steakhouse burger, served at a nouveau deli counter (or to-go! not that I'd recommend that).

Out of the non hood burgers I've had in the last 3-4 years in LA, this one is easily... the most morally righteous. And nearly as tasty. Please don't respond with complaints regarding price, location, hipsters, parking, gentrification, Bay Area, etc. Otherwise, if anyone has more Belcampo burger porn, please attach. I'd like to keep this thread as a master Belcampo burger spank bank for when anyone's hungry.

  1. :DDDDD WILL be by this weekend... Thanks for the thumbs up. The Burger at Egg Slut is always over cooked! :PPPP


    1. Sold. This looks beautiful.

      1. Was just featured on Tasting Table. The one in this link is too raw for me but, Tony's above looks fine.

        1. I forwarded a copy of the Tasting Table piece to the non-carnivorous Mrs. O, and she in turn sent me two photos of the pork, beef and lamb on display there from her iPhone. One advantage of working just down the street … she did offer to pick up something for me, but I'd actually rather deal with traffic and parking and do my own shopping.

          That is a perfectly acceptable price for a burger with those qualifications; I've paid more for worse. I would want a bit more cooking than either photo shows, but everything else about it looks sublime. Yay, Grand Central!

            the GCM transformation is nothing short of amazing.

              ns1, I'd been sharing J. Gold's trepidation about gentrification kicking out the good old stuff, but it's beginning to look like whatever changes is more likely to be an honest improvement than a rude hipster-related displacement. Hope that continues. I'm overdue for a trip down there anyway …

                some call it gentrification, others call it progress.

            2. re: Will Owen

              FWIW, mine was stamped "medium rare" -- it came w/ a doneness flag. I assume Synder @ TT ordered his "barely dead". The medium rare was done just about perfect in every single way.

              The $12 Nick & Stef HH (fries compris) was downright pathetic compared to this.

            3. A perfect way to chase an Eggslut...
