Dining in LA-My Best Bite of the Week: The Apple Pan


Even though I have a long list of restaurants on my must-visit list, every now and again I love revisiting an old favorite.  In my quest to see every movie nominated for Best Picture for the upcoming Academy Awards, I visited the Landmark Theatre on Pico Boulevard, that is part of Westside Pavillion.  The movie ended at 6:45pm, just in time for dinner in the nearby area.   I was accompanied by a friend visiting from Florida and when I suggested burgers at The Apple Pan, she was all over it.

The Apple Pan has been serving great food since 1947.  They have a limited menu that never changes, and that is truthfully part of the charm.  Every time you go there, you know what you’re going to get: a burger or sandwich, French fries and pie.  And don’t forget a soda (my choice is always Root Beer) in one of those old-fashioned paper cups.  When we walked in just before 7:00pm, we immediately got seats at the counter (which doesn’t always happen, especially on weekends) and were happily munching a plate of crispy fries in minutes.  Our Steak Burgers were just as I remember, hot and juicy and full of flavor thanks in part to their trademark hamburger relish.  Almost passed up dessert, but when Terry suggested splitting an Apple Pie a la Mode, who was I to refuse?  My dinner at Apple Pan on Pico Boulevard is being declared my best bite of the week!
