Openings: Custom Burger

The burger craze is officially arrived.

Custom Burger is now serving lunch and dinner on the corner of 7th and Howard in SoMa. As seems to be the requisite with new San Francisco restaurants these days, all ingredients are locally sourced, from meat from Golden Gate Meat Company to buns by Bay Bread (say that five times fast).

Rather than a traditional menu, Custom Burger has a five-step guide to creating “your perfect custom burger.” First you select your patty (Angus beef, American “Kobe” beef or Veggie). Then, you encounter a bevy of options, some free and some not. And there are a lot. Uncommon toppings vary from grilled pineapple and hoisin glaze to a fried egg (a la Fat Burger, we presume). Also, an interesting twist comes with the inclusion of one free sauce, and like the toppings, the sauces are very … eclectic: ketchipotle, peppercorn ranch, Spanish romesco, cucumber raita and more.

Yelp reviews have been pretty positive so far. Anyone have further details to share?
