Based on my recent posts I feel like I am writing Super Size Me, unfortunately it appears I just crave burgers on a much too frequent basis. Thus, here goes another entry chronicling my burger binge.

Blue Plate -
I ordered: the burger (obviously) with sharp cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions. I requested it medium-rare (my standard) and it arrived looking beautiful on the outside, very picturesque - I had high hopes . . . which were quickly dashed. The burger was a thin patty, a uniform drab grey on the inside. It was dry and flavorless. I normally love Blue Plate (I usually order the Turkey Club on La Brea Bakery wheat bread), it isn't haute cuisine, but it's good and consistent and this meal left me disappointed. My dining partner ordered the breakfast quesadilla which includes a hearty helping of cheese with eggs, bacon, tomato, salsa and avocado. It was perfectly tasty.

For dessert we couldn't resist a heaping slab of Susie Cake's red velvet cake. I hate to be a naysayer, but I tried SusieCakes ages ago and was disappointed. In spite of my past experience, this red velvet looked so enticing that I thought I'd give it another go. Once again, disappointment. It wasn't very cocoa-y and it was overly fluffy - almost the texture of angel food (exaggeration) as opposed to the proper dense cocoa-y confection it is meant to be. Verdict - I like Blue Plate but this was sub par.
