You like your co-workers just fine, but some lunch hours are for staring in silent defeat at a burger and a giant bowl of fries in hopes of a personal resurrection. When this is your current state, go to Psy Street Kitchen. This order-at-the-counter Kosher spot inside a giant strip mall on Ventura has solid burgers all around, but you need to concentrate on the lamb burger. Topped with the regular fixings and house-made aioli ranch, this is as good of a lamb burger as you’ll find in LA. You also get the choice between a brioche bun and pretzel bun, and you’re definitely getting the pretzel bun.
