Free Turkey Burgers from Bistro Truck and Jennie-O JUL26-30 (updated)

L: The crew, R: Brooklyn-Style Turkey Burger (Thurs)

RECAP: Lines up the wazoo, as expected. We were at 312/500 free burgers in the queue at 12:20pm. Roughly a 20min wait amounted to…? We’re going to tell it like it is: the burger was straight up bland. I tasted no cumin or oregano in the burger AT ALL. The potato bun, while soft and chewy, was way bigger than the patty and totally overshadowed the star of the show, the turkey. We enjoyed the cool wraparound wrapper though. Free tees (all sz L) were handed out to those who posed with a turkey burger, with a release form signature so they could post pics up on their site. If you are not swayed by our feedback, feel free to check it out for yourself, as there are 2 days remaining to claim your free burgers! PICS HERE

L: Red Carpet Opening, R: Duck bite

RECAP: Red carpet treatment was given, but attendees acted more like a bunch of savages who just got out of jail, as people were going gaga over the sushi and small bites. Red and white wines were plentiful, but the savory bites were the star of the show. A cross between CO-OP meets Megu, the food did not disappoint. We are keeping our eyes glued to its progress. PICS HERE

Event – Taste of Korea NYC @ Social Eatz JUL20 – we’ll be there (updated)


RECAP: 170 guests came hungry and eager to watch hunky Chef Angelo Sosa work his magic by going Korean, with the usage of gochujang, a Korean bean paste as well as liquid nitrogen. We were impressed by both the savory and the sips, as we not only left full, but there also was a superfluous amount of Bibimbap sliders going around, voted ‘Best Burger in America’. Sponsored by the Korean government, generous goodie bags were handed out, including Taste of Korea DVDs, a tee, a metal spoon and chopstick set for 2, and even a box of Jinro Soju.

Event – NY Truckcrawl JUL20 – we’ll be there (updated)

L: Wall Street Burgers Truck, R: Wall Street Burgers slider w/ curly fries

RECAP: DishcrawlNY presented their first TruckCrawl, starting off at USQ West & 17st. Green Dishcrawl pins (below) were handed out to identify those with the group.  Regularly $26, a special free code was given to Elite Yelpers in hopes of gaining exposure on this new venture. There were roughly 20 with the group, but none looked like the paying kind. Th

The first pit stop was the Wall Street Burgers Truck (above). The owner told us he quit his Wall Street job to start this truck with his wife, thus the name. Slider portions were handed out to us with curly fries. They claim to use grass fed angus, but we felt the burger was overdone. We like the concept of empowering ‘foodies’ with what’s considered good vs paid critics doing so. However, we disliked the constant filming of ‘DishCrawl TV’ without prior notice/waivers given.
