You’ll have to check their Instagram to see where they’re popping up next - right now, they’re at the old Beer Belly space in Koreatown on Thursdays and Saturdays, and Smorgasburg every Sunday - but Love Hour is worth seeking out. This smashburger spot keeps it simple - you choose between a single or a double (the double has the best meat-to-bun ratio), and then add your own toppings like you’re at a cookout. The edges of the burger get nice and crispy, but unlike other smash spots, it’s not overly greasy, so the bun stays intact... and that’s tougher to pull off that you think.
