Downtown beef and bun star Easy’s Burgers has moved on from Far East Plaza, owner Jeremy Fall confirms. The lunch-only takeaway option sat inside the former Amboy window next to Unit 120 for ten weeks, but is heading now for all new digs.

As with Amboy and every other concept to inhabit that window, time has always been short for Easy’s. The owner of the space, Alvin Cailan, is keen to keep new options rotating in and out, which is in line with his ethos of making the Amboy window/Unit 120 an incubator for concepts and menus that can then stretch into standalone locations.

That’s certainly the case here, as Fall says Easy’s Burgers will eventually head west with a standalone location in the general Fairfax/La Brea area, though the official address and timeline aren’t set in stone just yet. In the meantime, he’s rather busy opening up Tinfoil Liquor & Grocery in Highland Park as a multi-use concept, complete with a full deli.

Expect more on the Easy’s front sometime down the line, including an official location and expanded menu. Until then, you’ll either have to sit back, eyes closed, and remind yourself how great those burgers were — head to Burgerlords if you’re looking for a Chinatown burger.
