Just a few brief words of comfort & taste on this tasty Tuesday.
I associate with a 1-2 handfuls of like-minded friends from the local area every 2-3 months. Centered around eating. I meant, of course, around experiencing Los Angeles & Hollywood history! Now, Pasadena history is my primary interest but I think it’s wise I know some unique & old stuff of my birthplace.
I sort of tag along. Following closely behind my elders (LoL) who are writers/authors/whatever/entertainers/historians who happen to be well-known in the LA/Hollywood history field. Btw, I’ll let you know when one of these individuals will soon be giving a talk here in Pasadena.
Anyhows, you know from the Pasadena meet-ups I’ve been a part of it is important to include a food eating chapter. Fortunately, the same food philosophy is honored at these local history get togethers. Either before or after we make it a priority to feed our stomachs.
This month, prior to our historical purpose, we first gathered at the Astro Burger near Paramount Studios – one of the better fast-food joints! Although I’ve eaten here several times in the past it was the first time to actually eat inside. It’s clean, bright, and comfortable.
Lemme get the downsides of this joint out of the way: NO free drink refills and there isn’t an Astro Burger within 15 minutes of Pasadena. 😦
My order of the day was a Turkey Burger with Onion Rings. Most of our group included Onion Rings with their orders. The Turkey Burger was good but Fat Burgers is better. But the main point of this writing is to recommend the Astro Burger Onion Rings! I love Onion Rings and often choose them over French Fries.
They may be the best I’ve had. To the best of my recollection. Unlike most Onion Rings, these weren’t greasy, thick, and over-battered. The Onions actually made up most of the Onion Rings! What are your thoughts on Onion Rings?
Believe It or Not!, except for this photo I didn’t take a singe shot of what we ate. I think I was too occupied in Onion Rings, conversation, and, looking through a film related art book someone brought.
If you appreciate Onion Rings you can understand the significance of this posting..
Gotta Go Eat!! Stay Thirsty My Friends
