DTLA: Chili Cheese Fries at Cassell’s Hamburgers
Cassell’s has opened a location in Downtown Los Angeles. The DTLA location is right across the street from the Freehand hotel and it takes over the old Pellicola pizza spot.
I visit the one in Koreatown quite regularly and my order is always the patty melt. However I was swayed to order the chili cheese fries which were great. They came topped with plenty of cheese, pico de gallo and a lot of avocado! Yum!
My friend had the DFC fried chicken sando with the “crack” sauce on the side. If you like fried chicken sandwiches, this is a good one. It’s super crispy and I liked the tangy slaw.
Why do I love patty melts? Well, this one is 1/3 of a pound and it’s so pure beefy goodness. Plus the cheese (I always get cheddar) gets crisped up like a giant cheese chip. It’s simple but so very good.
The only thing I wasn’t into were the sweet potato waffle fries. They get dusted with sugar and that was a bit weird for me. That’s okay, we had lots of chili cheese fries!
I’m really enjoying this block around the Freehand. Not only do they have great bars and a restaurant but now there are other places to nosh around it. That’s a plus for anyone staying at the hotel. Or for nearby office workers looking for more lunch options.
