Haché LA, a new steak sandwich shop, held their soft opening last night in Silver Lake.The promise of free food and drinks packed the new spot, which will have its official grand opening in location of Tarascos at 3319 W. Sunset Boulevard on September 18. Founder Michael "Mick" Schepers (who owns Mick's Karma Bar in Irvine) has some pretty strict parameters when it comes to what qualifies as a true Haché sandwich.

According to a release, the ground beef should be four hours old or less and of steak quality. It should be seasoned only after forming, and only on the outside-like a steak. Once formed, the patty must be cooked within a half hour.

The result is a fresh, high-quality burger-esque steak sandwich on a soft bun. The bun is attached in the back, holding in all the juice and toppings. We tried the Habanero Burger (chiles, queso fresco, garlic mayo) and the signature offering, the Karma Burger (american cheese, karma sauce, leaf lettuce, tomato, red onion). We washed them down with draft Pacifico and house made strawberry basil lemonade.

The restaurant's open patio style dining area connects to a busy kitchen where you can watch the chefs at work. There's a street side counter that looks directly into the kitchen as well. If you're looking for a classier, but still cheap, alternative to your fast food runs, this could be the place.
