Food Porn: The Best Burgers in L.A.

pie n burger

Hungry for a little local food porn? The idea of a "Best Burgers in L.A." list seems a little tired -- haven't we already seen dozens of web sites take a stab at such a roundup? But what makes this list, from Refinery 29, work is the photography. Erin Yamagata does a great job capturing the delicious essence of each burger.

The Refinery 29 list includes all the usual suspects -- with one or two unexpected (well, for me at least) ones: Original Tommy's, Pie n Burger, The Counter, The Apple Pan, Black Hogg, Father's Office, Pier Burger, The Spice Table, Egg Slut Truck, The Oinkster, Little Bear, Umami Burger, Five Guys and In N Out.

The appearance of chain shops on the list may ruffle some feathers; I can let most slide -- including In N Out, Umami, The Counter and Tommy's, all of which originated here. But including East Coast-based chain Five Guys on the list is bordering on offensive.

I don't know if Hawkin's Burger off Imperial Hwy. in Watts is still open. They had the best burgers. It was the burger of my childhood, like Remembrance of Things Past madelines.
