Congratulations is in order to the Legendary rapper, Bun B!! I have been following this burger competition on "Good Morning America" alllll week, so when Bun won this morning I was SUPAhype!! I have always followed Bun B's cooking since they had "Trill Meals" on You Tube, so this was a BIG WINWIN!!
Trill Burgers received three out of the five votes from the judges, which included celebrity chef and TV personality Gina Neely,G former NFL running back Tiki Barber, former NBA player Jalen Rose, WWE wrestler Titus O’Neil, and ABC anchor Sam Champion.
Mike Pham (Hou Chef) went head to head against the other finalists, including Philly's (Lucky's Last Chance), (The Companion) in Atlanta, & (Babes Meat & Counter) in Miami.
Pham is a Houston chef with 14 years experience. He said his first job was in a burger restaurant, so he's long held a desire to create a signature burger business. "With this burger, we wanted to hit on sweet, salty, bitter, sour and savory," he said. "I wanted to bring some southeast Asian influence. But we knew if we could do hit those five things, we'd have an all-American burger." (Hou Chron)
Bun added, "This burger was created to specifications that I like. We worked on it, perfected it, and I knew if I liked it, other people would, too." (Hou Chron)
The Trill Burger is made from 44 Farms beef, a secret "Trill Sauce," caramelized onions, house-made pickles between two halves of a Martin's potato roll bun.
I can't wait for the store front to open!!! #SoTrill
