Hapa Burger at The Standing Room

We have for our random meal of the day an order of the Hapa Burger. This restaurant is quite unique as the original location started unassumingly in shared space within a liquor store. It had considerable following on yelp. The funny thing about this is that even though the food that they served was fantastic, I just wonder how photogenic the random meal will be. It was one of the places that if I was out to photograph the random meal specifically, I would bring my own plate. Fast forward a couple of years later, they actually opened a full sit down restaurant. Finally I had the opportunity to dine at the restaurant.

The Hapa burger starts with a half pound burger patties. We then top it with onions, scallion, sesame leaf and a spring mix. We then top the burger with a fried egg and finish it with Gouchu-Q & Korean Aioli. The funny thing is that I actually still did not get a plate for this random meal.

Found at The Standing Room in Hermosa Beach, California.
