Jewel City Diner

I had me one of those mother-daughter shopping days at the Americana in Glendale, Ca. Actually, it was getting several items that I will be bringing with me to the Philippines later this month, but still I love spending quality time with my mom. It was also really lovely day in LA. A mild break from the crazy winds we've been having lately. There was a nice breeze, which made it nice for going to the beach or simple a day out in the park.


Jewel City Diner. Located next to Cheesecake Factory and H&M at the Americana. Most of the outdoor seating was taken, so I opted to eat inside the diner area.   But it did have that diner feel even though the inside had limited room. But you do get counter service, which was pretty neat. They had some of the usual selections. Sandwiches, burgers, hotdogs, salads, desserts.

I order the turkey burger with swiss cheese and a side of onion rings. Look at those tick battered onions rings. It was a mix of crisp with a touch of soggy as the oil it was deep fried it soaked up into the fresh fried rings. Ooo...That's one thing I haven't done on B + B yet...good ol' fashioned onion rings.

Anyway...I had these with some lemonade to wash it all down. The burger had your usual trimming of tomato and lettuce, pickles with may and mustard. Served on a wheat bun, I believe. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It wasn't the best burger I've eaten, but it was good enough to keep my hunger down for a few hours. It was just enough to fill me. Not to the point where I need a nap right after. It was the "ok now I'm full and let's keep shopping" feeling. They do offer to slice your burger in half. That's was pretty neat, in case you can't finish the whole thing. As how I always eat my burgers, I like like to go for the veggies first, then eat up the meat and bun after with maybe a load of ketchup per bite.

I love the Americana but I don't get out there often because of the distance/traffic. Thanks for the review though because the next time I feel like getting stuck on the 134 for hours I will have a good meal waiting for me. :)

Love mother-daughter afternoons!
