Torrance is a laid-back beach town where you can spend a day at the beach and sample some of the best cuisine on the central coastline. In many ways, Torrance is SoCal’s best secret. Despite the numerous places to eat, shop, and play, this city’s beaches remain mostly uncrowded and it still has that simple “locals only” vibe that is nearly impossible to find on the California coast these days.
If you’re lucky enough to live in Torrance year-round, you have probably already heard about the new burger joint coming to West Knox Street in June 9th 2017 (Grand Opening Celebration). Tourists may have even heard the rumors flying as this new burger restaurant seems to be creating some serious buzz in recent weeks. Burgerim will make its first debut in Torrance later this month and people are already excited to try the world famous burgers that put Burgerim on the map in 2011.
Burgers might seem like an awfully mundane concept for people to get so excited about, but Burgerim isn’t serving up ordinary burgers. The US-based restaurant has managed to come up with a completely unique concept where people build their own customized burgers with mix and match buns, patties, and add-ons. Think of those build your own sub sandwich places that people love, but make it all about slider style burgers (2.8 ounces per burger) and you’ve got a good look at the driving concept behind Burgerim.
This restaurant also makes an intentional effort to serve up quality, gourmet food. Forget greasy, bland burgers at the fast food drive-thru. At Burgerim, you’ll get to order delicacies like Wagyu beef or lamb. Skip the boring ketchup and mayo. With quality ingredients, you want to taste your burger. If you want to add toppings, go for something special like slices of avocado or a sunny side egg. It’s the Burgerim approach to making fast food classy again.
The casual, quick service setting that Burgerim provides is expected to be a big hit in Torrance. Beachgoers can stop in for some dinner after an afternoon of surfing and building sand castles. Anglers can grab a box of burgers “to go” and chow down while they spend a day fishing. Burgerim will even cater to local businesses with delivery options that make company lunches easy and delicious.
The new burger joint is just one more reason why Torrance should be at the top of California travel destinations this year. This little jewel on the SoCal coast is the perfect place to escape from the stress of daily life and soak up some sun in quiet, uncrowded stretches of Pacific shoreline. On your next visit to Torrance, take time to drink in all the experiences the locals love best. Visit the breweries, browse the local art galleries and shops, and take a sunset walk on the beach. When you’re ready for a break, stop in at the new Burgerim and grab a bite to eat while you watch the big game, chat with locals, and enjoy the tiny burgers that are creating big buzz in this SoCal beach town.
