The Flying Dutchman from In-N-Out Burger

Clockwise from bottom: Flying Dutchman, Cheeseburger, Double Double, and Cheeseburger

That patty at the bottom might look like somebody had made a mistake, but it was intentional. It was an off-menu item at In-N-Out called the Flying Dutchman, which was pretty much a Double Double in its purest form.

Yep - that meant double meat and double cheese, but nothing bun, lettuce, sauce, onions, or anything. They just threw it onto a Double Double wrapper and gave you a plastic fork to eat it with (not even a knife). I'm not sure how it got its name.

Well, it was much richer than I thought it would be - perhaps because the cheese now came in direct contact with my tongue without any of that lettuce and bread getting in the way. I probably won't get this again - in fact, the freshness of the veggies is precisely why I like In-N-Out so much, and this kind of defeats the purpose. But it was good to try at least once.
