Starting Sunday August 23rd, we will serve beef and vegan burgers on the DL--the counter inside Duc Loi supermarket (18th and Mission). Duc Loi has graciously agreed to donate $1 from the sale of each burger to the San Francisco Food Bank. Lunch service begins at noon and continues until we run out of food. We'll open every day but Thursday.
Beef Burger: 1/3 lb of aged harris ranch brisket, short rib and chuck, granulated* and seared in beef fat. Served with monterey jack, caramelized onion and caper aioli on a griddled acme bun - $8
Vegan Burger: maitake, shitake, roasted kale, edamame, scallion, sesame seed and fava-chickpea patty. Served with avocado and miso "mayo"** on a griddled acme bun - $7
Fries - $2
* granulation is our term for the process popularized by Heston Blumenthal, a michelin 3-star chef based in London. Blumenthal combines strands of ground meat to create a loosely grained "meat column" (not Blumenthal's phrase), then slices the column into patties. The result is, well, a delicacy.
** like traditional mayonaise this is an emulsion, but we're using seaweed instead of egg yolks.
