It's safe to say I didn't know what to expect when I heard The Vulgar Chef and Slater's 50/50 Burgers decided to collab on a exclusive item for FOODBEAST's upcoming meat festival, Meat Street Presented by the Makers of SPAM Brand at Main Place Mall.
But, when I saw what these two masters of burger architecture built — it was more amazing than I could have imagined.
Enter The Totcho Burger. Think part nachos, part carne asada fries, part bacon burger. Every aspect of this Vulgar Chef x Slater's 50/50 collab is a detailed and focused on the all-meat theme of MEAT STREET — even the roll has bacon in it.
Slater's signature 50/50 patty with pepper jack cheese, carne asada marinated bacon, loaded with TATER TOTS, then topped with nacho cheese, real chorizo crumbles, and sliced jalapeños. And all's served up on a bacon-infused telera roll with guacamole and a cilantro lime dressing.
It wasn't too long ago we reported on the The Vulgar Chef calling out big names like Burger King for stealing his recipes, so hopefully the corporate trolls will just sit back and enjoy the show.
I know I will — as long as I can grab a Totcho Burger.
MEAT STREET is on Saturday April 22. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit www.eatmeatstreet.com.
