The excellent 24th Street sandwich shop Pal's Takeaway is branching into burgers. We've gotten word that a new menu will debut Thursday, and will then be offered on Wednesdays a couple of days a month at La Movida, the sandwichery's newish home.
The burgers themselves -- made with a blend of Marin Sun Farms brisket, chuck, short rib, and a few more secret ingredients that proprietor Jeff Mason wouldn't disclose -- that sound pretty fantastic. The Pal's burger comes with house pimento cheddar, roasted cherry tomatoes, greens, and secret sauce; there's also one with French feta, spring onion, greens, and secret sauce, and a version with just greens and mayo ($11-$12).
Along with burgers, diners can order sides like broccolini with chili flakes and reggiano cheese. Non-carnivores will be able to get a veggie burger and a deep-fried cod roll -- two more variations on the Pal's Takeaway "exploration of good stuff between two pieces of bread."
