Maurice Mikel has spent years trying to create the perfect hamburger. Call it something of an obsession for the Jordanian immigrant, who recently opened Petaluma’s Slamburger. Featuring big flavors influenced by the aromatic herbs and spices of his homeland, these are burgers with some serious bite. Our fave, however, is the fungusladen ’Shroomaluma with Cremini mushrooms, lettuce, Swiss, peach barbecue sauce, tomato and house pickles. Don’t miss the Slam Fries, a hearty plate of fries smothered with garlic aioli, red onions and a fried egg.
