Today JP and I did a mini Fat Tour. It only counts as a full fledged one if we go to three or more places. This time we went to two spots that were new to us. The first was Golden State on Fairfax between Melrose and Beverly. She mentioned this place a little bit ago but with my weird ass schedule it was hard to find time to hang out let alone get our food on. We were able to find parking pretty easily considering it was Fairfax Blvd. around lunchtime for folks that work regular hours. We got a seat at the booth after ordering and stared at all the weirdos standing in line in the heat to look at shoes.
For drinks she got a mint lemonade that was good because as she said, you could taste the mint and lemonade. I got an Arnold Palmer. Both were good. Our food came in less than ten minutes which shocked me. I got a bacon cheeseburger with sweet potato fries and garlic aioli sauce. These were some of the best fries I have ever had. No exaggeration. Just amazing. The burger was great and juicy. Though this place was not huge they made good use of the space available. It didn't feel like we were on top of one another. Her hot dog was good and not a plain ass hot dog like I was expecting. Her fries were good too. We will be coming back here for sure to try out some more stuff and get those sweet potato fries again.
Part two of our mini Fat Tour involved wadding our asses to ICDC on Beverly Blvd. Now, when I say we had the best donuts we've ever had in our lives we are not joking. I have been on this planet for close to 40 years and had enough donuts to kill a horse and have never had a donut that made me want to dance, cry, and make love. JP got the chocolate pretzel donut which was good. The chocolate partied on my mouth roof. The pistachio vanilla was good and ha actual chunks of it on top, not just dusting. But then we got to the ones I had and we had to reevaluate our lives.
I got the salt and pepper caramel. Sounds weird as hell, I know. But trust me. The next was a butterscotch toffee. This one was filled with light butterscotch and topped with toffee. The inside was not thick like I was expecting similar to custard. It was super light. I know these sound like something you would think is too sweet but somehow they were not. As much as I love sweet things I know when something is too sweet. I don't have pictures but we both got coffees with ice cream in them too. We both ended up with mad it is but we persevered.
