So several years ago I was alone for the first time in the big city of L.A. More specifically Marina Del Rey which is a stones throw from Venice Beach. I finally ventured down to the beach by myself and I was starving. I stopped at this place on the beach and got a burger. Little did I realize it was going to be the best burger I had ever eaten in my life!!!
I know, I know, it was because I was starving and there was no one else there to be a witness so it probably didn’t even happen.
Years later, partly because I was so hungry to have this burger again, Jake and I finally ventured all the way to Venice Beach and we got to the spot where I remembered it being. We looked around and all we saw was this place called The Wings- Famous Chicken Wings. I suddenly felt like perhaps I’d experienced a “How I Met Your Mother” moment when Marshall can never find the place in New York where he had the best burger in the world. Feeling panicky I decided to walk into the chicken place. As soon as I walked in the door I smelled the smell,recognized the decor, and even think I recognized the cook.
Apparently when I was so hungry the first time I had never realized it was a chicken place. ANYWAY, yes, Jake agreed, it was the best burger ever. I can’t even explain why. I remember it being juicy with a toasted bun but beyond that all I can say is: It was perfect!
