Highlights from the Rogue 99 ~ Apple Pan

[dropcap size=big]A[/dropcap]pple Pan opened in 1947, and it is one of L.A.’s most beloved institutions. It’s a tiny place with a tiny menu, and it’s cash-only, something that went from standard to old-school to a political stance, even if the owners don’t know it. People stand by the door until a stool opens up at the u-shape counter, which can be slightly stressful, but is part of the experience. The menu includes ham, tuna, egg salad, and cheese sandwiches (do those ever get ordered?), but more importantly, two burgers: original and hickory, which presumably just has a little liquid smoke in the mix. French fries are separate and soda is served in a paper cone. There are also three pies to choose from: apple, pecan and a daily cream pie. Should you come across the Apple Pan’s banana cream pie, absolutely take one home.
