The other day, I woke up late, jumped in my car and drove down Sunset intent on finding myself some good eats. I was at Sunset and Micheltorena when what to my wandering eye should appear but the Patty Wagon! They are the newest addition to Los Angeles’ fleet of food trucks offering mini burgers made from grass-fed beef. So, I got behind the truck and followed it all the way to the Trader Joe’s in Silverlake.
I decided to get the “You’re My Everything” (sweet peppers, onions, garlic and swiss cheese) with a side of rosemary and garlic fries. I never knew how much tastier grass-fed beef is than regular beef. It actually tastes like meat! The patty was perfectly cooked and juicy without being greasy. And the toppings all complimented each other and the meat perfectly. The one thing that I failed to realize is that these are mini burgers, so I probably should have ordered more than one.
The unfortunate thing is that the Patty Wagon’s current list of locations doesn’t include Echo Park, so I think we need to encourage them to come to our neighborhood. Maybe they and Grill ‘Em All could have a grill-off!
