As a burger aficionado, it’s a little insulting I hadn’t thought of this before. Not to mention, never tried it. It’s two comfort foods, come together, to make one super comfort food. The former singer (and home cook) Toni Malone’s burger concept called Soul Burgers, is quickly becoming the talk of burger lovers all over LA. Soul food on a bun.
Toni’s love for cooking goes back about 25 years when she opened her first burger joint not far from her current location. But her love for music was too strong, she closed her restaurant and hit the road. Now, after all those years, she’s returned to Inglewood with her soul burger. But this time, instead of classic beef, she’s combined something that her son loved the most; turkey burgers and southern cooking.
And sure, it makes sense. Combine two comfort foods into something that sets so cal apart, soul food and hamburgers. Open for nearly a year, Soul Burgers features a selection of tender turkey burgers infused with southern soul cooking. Like the Luscious Yam Burger; a turkey patty layered with turkey bacon, egg, cheese, and special spicy sauce. Get it extreme and go for a turkey burger layered with turkey bacon, cheese, egg, greens, yams, dressing, and that special spicy sauce.
The soul food doesn’t stop at a turkey burger. Try the Heavenly Chop Burger with a seasoned lean pork chop topped with turkey bacon, egg, special spicy sauce, cheese, and your choice of greens or yams. They also have veggie, fish and fried chicken on a bun.
Their sweet potato fries, lightly fried, are sprinkled with just a dusting of sugar. They also feature a smattering of sides like mac-n-cheese and a selection of home made desserts. Keep on eye out for them on an upcoming episode of Food Network’s Outrageous Food, featuring their Outrageous Extreme Soul Burger.
I’m a soul man.
