Kettle Settles on New Burger Name

"The Highlander" has mades its way onto The Kettle's menu.

The Kettle has broken ties with another famous burger joint, and they've done it in style.

After In-N-Out restaurant requested that The Kettle, a Manhattan Beach eatery that has been in existence for nearly four decades, change the name of its Double-Double burger, The Kettle held a contest to see who could come up with the best name alternative.

And former Manhattan Beach resident Vannesa Hricik has been named the winner, now famously dubbing The Kettle's 2x2 burger, "The Highlander."

"I am so excited that I won that contest," Hricik said, now a resident of Sonoma, California. "I submitted the name "Highlander" for obvious reasons and because I love The Kettle. I am a huge fan."

Hricik, who said that she was a regular at The Kettle during her time in Manhattan Beach and came up with the name because of the restaurant's location on Highland Avenue, was awarded with 100 Kettle bucks, equivalent to $100.

Surprisingly, In-N-Out's request was met with little resistance from The Kettle, as employees commented that they were "flattered" that In-N-Out recognized a Double-Double burger outside of their own.

Hricik, who makes her living as a blacksmith and a jeweler, said that she plans to spend the Kettle Bucks in the near future.

"My favorite things are the Honey Bran Muffins with the egg white omelette and brown rice with that sweet teriyaki sauce," Hricik said. "Also, the chinese chicken salad and the chop salads are to die for!"
