Petit Trois | 718 Highland Ave., Los Angeles, CA | petittrois.com

Every year, my pescatarian best friend decides to indulge in a birthday burger. This year, we chose to attack the Big Mec at Petit Trois, and boy, did they deliver. The online menu shows a Petit Mec, just a single patty cheeseburger, but it was not an option on the menu that day. So we were "forced" to order the double cheeseburger Big Mec.

This thing was a flavor bomb straight to the brain. The juicy patty, mixed with the melted bechamel based cheese sauce, and I'm sure theres some foie gras in there somewhere, was the perfect combo to make you love your life. We even sat at the counter to watch all of the other dishes being prepped - from the escargot to the omelette, everything was coming out in beautiful form.

What you will soon learn is that I'm a dessert guy - a meal is not a meal with a dessert. 

If you're going to have a big boy lunch, you better have a big boy dessert. And if you're going to do something wrong, do it right, right? 

In comes the Napolean. This Napolean dessert met everything I expected from a French brasserie, and then some. I saw previous pictures of this thing, and they were so perfectly prepared and cut, but this one was prepared by the order, and it was messy, rich, and all-over-the-place delicious. The cream was perfectly prepared, and to top it off, there was fresh vanilla bean in there. Such a great touch. I wanted to smear the cream all over my face. Needless to say, I pretty much downed this thing on my own and seriously could have had another one.
