Time to celebrate a month of great burgers – and let’s get started with one of the newest – AND BEST – burger bars in LA:

“Plan Check” opened in 2012, and now has three locations om Los Angeles, I checked out the Sawtelle restaurant near work, which is always packed with people eager to bite down on this:

Bring On The “Ketchup Leather!”

“Plan Check” has half a dozen burger options, plus pastrami and chicken sandwiches…I tested the tradition “PCB” – and yes, they all come with ketchup leather! See it there?

It tastes like a ketchup fruit roll up, and a nice chewy addition to the soft bun and juicy burger….there is so much going on here it’s almost impossible to capture it!

Here is the PCB:

PCB (PLAN CHECK BURGER) $12.00
americanized dashi cheese, ketchup leather, schmaltz onions, mixed pickles, crunch bun

You can see the “schmaltz onions” and the pickles as well:

I also tried another one of Plan Check’s specialities:

The “Beef Tallow” Fries!

Plan Check serves fries up two ways:


FRIES $5.00
beef tallow, smoked salt, fresh ketchup

SWEET POTATO WAFFLE FRIES $6.00
beef tallow, peach ketchup

Of course, they can all be “suppressed” with schmaltz onions and cheese, which we did:

“Plan Check” is packed to the rafters for a reason: a great menu that is well executive, and fun stuff like “ketchup leather” make it a memorable bite…oh, and since it’s National Burger Month, let’s remember a few more “memorable bites”, like this one:

And when you celebrate burgers, it’s more than just an appreciation of the taste…I love that burger can also be works of art:
