Stout Burgers & Beers in Santa Monica

Dish With Trish is having a burger kind of day!

Stout’s Truffle Shuffle burger hit the spot along with sweet potato fries and a big giant pretzel (off the menu) served with our choice of 3 sauces: Horseradish (my favorite), Chipotle Ketchup, & Bell Spread.

After all that yumminess, the great thing was being able to walk it off and sight see while in Santa Monica. Location is in the heart of everything from the beach, 3rd St. Promenade, SM Pier and much much more!

TRUFFLE SHUFFLE (Sauteed Mushrooms / Brie / Truffle Aioli)

THE MORNING AFTER (Rosemary Bacon / Egg Over Easy / Aged Cheddar / Chipotle Ketchup)
