Hamburguesas Punta Cabras is Now Stacking Burgers to the Ceiling Downtown

The tiny shop is only soft open, but already getting inventive with their menu.

Ever so softly, Hamburguesas Punta Cabras has opened downtown. Meant to be a sandwichy follow up to Santa Monica’s Tacos Punta Cabras, the hamburger spot first dropped news of its Spring Street takeover earlier this month, but only recently began cooking for the occasional customer inside.

The location, between 6th and 7th in the old Mai’s Mexican Kitchen, is a perfect little nook for the Punta Cabras guys, especially considering their diminutive westside destination. They’ve spruced up the place a bit, including a wall of succulents to one side, but mostly it’s going to be just as crowded, loud, and exciting as their sister restaurant. Expect parking to be equally as terrible.

Once up and running officially, Hamburguesas Punta Cabras hopes to fuse quality ingredients with a fast food sensibility, in part by doing outrageous things like marinating beef in bacon fat before cooking. The team is also looking to work up some chorizo-cheese sauce for their fries, and who knows what other delicious fast food snacks. Owners Joshua Gil and Daniel Snuka have been showcasing a few dishes in progress over on the Tacos Punta Cabras Instagram feed, but a full hamburger menu (for now, at least) can be found right here.
