It’s no secret that I love Smish Smash, a smashburger pop-up operating out of Neptune’s in Alameda. They make some of the best burgers I’ve had in recent memory, with crispy, caramelized beef patties smashed super thin and sandwiched between soft potato rolls. Smish Smash also drops creative weekly specials on their Instagram - like an uni burger topped with yuzukosho and ponzu aioli, or the pho-inspired Dac Biet with jalapeño and bean sprouts. If you spun around ten times and threw a dart at the menu it would always land on something great - but when in doubt, get the Signature with two beef patties, house sauce, cheese, pickles, and grilled onions. If the specials are Andre 3000, the Signature is Big Boi - less flashy, but equally brilliant. Check their Instagram for the latest on how to order.
