After taking a break from burgers for last week’s blog, I felt compelled to take one more week off before returning to the Burgering Adventure.
I wanted to return to a place I hadn’t been for quite some time: Sweetsalt.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been to this little shop on Riverside, but it looks like business has been good as they’ve expanded the seating area inside.
I had originally planned to get the Duck Confit sandwich that I had gotten on my last visit but perusing the menu led my eye to the Short Rib sandwich.
Now I’ve had short rib sandwiches before (here and here) so this wasn’t anything new, but would it be able to hold up to my previous experiences?
The short rib on this sandwich was delicious. Shredded, sweet and at the same time a little spicy, from the beginning it’s noticeable that this is a standout. Topped with goat cheese, braised onions, roasted garlic and a handful of wild arugula, which added a mild mustard flavor to the mix, this is a top short rib sandwich. it is definitely a contender for one of the best in the area.
Also knowing what the rest of their menu is like (especially the outstanding Lavender Duck Confit), Sweetsalt is now even more of a must-visit place in Toluca Lake.
So now, for real, I will return to reviewing the Burgers of Burbank again next week. I have so many more to tell you aout, and Bryan and I are about to take on some more again very soon.
Until next week…
