LA Dreams: Wishing Upon a Burger

I just got back from a trip to LA—a city I wish I could somehow fuse with San Francisco to make what might be a perfect city. To this city I'd like to add LA's warm weather, amazing ethnic eats, al fresco dining culture (see: warm weather) and real respect for salads and burgers.

I feel a burger wave coming to SF (the new Super Duper in the Castro—which I have yet to try—will definitely be followed up with other all-burger spots), but LA has long been known for their burger culture. I'd been highly advised to try out the newish Umami Burger in LA of which there are a few outposts. So on a sunny Saturday, I stopped by the Santa Monica location with my family to try out pretty much every burger on the short menu.

The Best Burger Under $10? You Tell Us!

Jessica and I have done our duty—scouring the city for the best high-end burgers until our stomach's ached. But this does not mean every burger in town has been unturned. There's a world of cheap burgers out there waiting to get their due.

We're leaving this one to you: What is San Francisco's best burger under $10? (For hometown pride, please don't say In-n-Out.)

Leave your opinion in the comment box and be eligible to win burgers for two at our number one choice for best high-end burger!
