There’s A ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Pop-Up Restaurant Coming!
By Cooking Panda
Do you have a thing for clever burger puns and the misadventures of a certain quirky, off-kilter animated family? Head on over to Los Angeles’ Chinatown on Dec. 1, where you’ll find a Bob’s Burgers art show and burger collaboration.
Bob, Tina and the rest of the Belchers are coming to the City of Angels, where they’ll stay until Dec. 10, reports Eater Los Angeles. We hear that the actual Bob’s Burgers artists will be showing off their art in Chef Alvin Cailan’s restaurant and “concept shop” Unit 120’s dining room space, while you’ll have the option to pick up one-off burgers from a daily guest chef. While the artwork is going to be the event’s focus, and you won’t have the full-on restaurant experience, we can’t imagine anyone not getting excited to try out some creatively named, punny creations that use a few odd ingredients here and there. And we’re pretty sure that Unit 120 is going to have some delectable culinary treats in store for us, considering Cailan’s excellent history of supplying us with top-notch burgers, just like he did with restaurateur Jeremy Fall, who started Easy’s at Unit 120, which became so popular that he’s now preparing to set it up in a proper brick and mortar establishment.
If you can’t make it out to Los Angeles but want to eat some of Bob’s uniquely titled creations, stock up at the grocery store and check out the Bob’s Burger Experiment blog, where Honda engineer Cole Bowden has done the dirty work for you and turned all the best burger puns into actual recipes and given them a taste so you don’t have to go through the whole process of making shrimp gumbo, only to find out that it’s actually disgusting stuffed into a hamburger.
If you’re not sure where to start, why not try the Bruschetta-bout-it Burger, which is an angus beef patty topped with bruschetta, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and mozzarella cheese on toasted French bread? It’s Bowden’s favorite.
