Unless you happen by North Shore Burgers in the La Canada Flintridge movie complex at1929-B Verdugo Blvd. Named after a windswept isle, at the inviting spot they start with a choice of USDA Prime beef, cooked medium, a turkey patty, chicken breast, or vegetarian patty on fresh buns served with your choice of a dozen tempting toppings and sides in pleasantly tropical indoor or outside seating areas.
Depending on my mood and the extent of my hunger pangs, the Palate savors either their basic 5-0 burger with lettuce, mayo, tomato, and pickles, $5.95, or Dani’s fancy burger with Portobello mushrooms, grilled eggplant, onions, roasted red peppers, goat cheese, and a creamy dressing, $7.95.
Make a side of island sweet fried onion rings a must, $3.25. Wash it all down with a soft drink or a pint of Blue Hawaiian Hefeweizen beer, $5.50. The energetic young service staff delivers your meal to the table hot and tasty.
