The art of mastering California Adventure Tours is knowing things that would almost never cross a person’s mind. An example would be the Guinness Milkshake that is served at 25 Degrees located inside of the historic Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. The name refers to the temperature difference between a medium rare and well done burger. Clever! 25 Degrees describes their concept as playful with a “Bordello meets Burger Bar” attitude.
I was intent to eat at 25 Degrees solely to find out what this Guinness Milkshake was all about. Truthfully I was only willing to except that it would be awful. I happen to like Guinness; but Guinness + Milk must equal awful right? Well, I was wrong. It is basically a vanilla malt shake with hints of chocolate and a small amount of Guinness blended into it that creates a unique flavor. What I am trying to say is; OMG it is awesome! In addition to that, everything on the menu was a treat. Building your own gourmet burger from the ground up is the way to go; selecting from sirloin, turkey or veggie burger with scrumptious toppings and gourmet cheeses as your building blocks. You can not walk out the door without trying the sweet potato french fries too. Wow!
So I am here to tell you that 25 Degrees needs to be on your hit list. Do not be intimidated by the Guinness Milkshake. Just order it.
25 Degrees is also located in the City North Center in Phoenix Arizona, and the most recent location in Downtown Huntington Beach California.
As they say, 25 Degrees is not just another spot to grab an ordinary burger.
