my post about their pastrami sandwich on their homepage. A reporter from the Wall Street Journal contacted me and wanted to ask some questions. (It turned out he just wanted to talk about McDonald's McRib - something I hated.) But nothing compares to the excitement of today when, while cruising down Lake Ave, I spotted a "Fatburger Coming Soon" sign.
It's on the west side of Lake, almost immediately across from The Slaw Dogs. When I was in high school it was a Taco Bell at which my friends and I used to grab cheap grub on our way to Dodger Stadium. In recent years it was a place called "Pearl's Kitchen," a fast food Hawaiian takeout spot that did not look good. I've never met anyone who has eaten there; I've never met anyone who has even heard of it.
But now it will be a Fatburger. This pleases me.
