Aside from In-N-Out’s crispy, griddled patty, the most celebrated burger in Los Angeles has to be Sang Yoon’s juicy, extra-cheesy signature at beer mecca Father’s Office. Inspired by his favorite flavors to pair with beef, Yoon created a powerhouse mix of toppings: caramelized onions, Gruyère and Maytag cheeses, applewood-smoked bacon compote and arugula. After years of notoriety, Yoon doesn't scoff at his burger's enduring fame. “I don’t think any chef gets to decide what they’re known for,” he says. “That’s left to the audience. You’re lucky if you get to be known for anything.”
