Sexy Angelo winning!
Sexy Chef Angelo Sosa, a “Top Chef” and “Top Chef: All Stars” alum, and his Korean-inspired Bibimbap burger win the title of “Greatest Burger in America.”
Angelo Sosa, now the executive chef and co-owner of Social Eatz, is famous for fusing Asian flavors with American comfort foods. The restaurant is an American-Asian (not Asian-American!) restaurant and bar, which offers American comfort foods with an Asian kick.
The Bibimbap Burger
The name, Bibimbap, is Korean for “mixed meal”, a combo of ground beef with a slow cooked egg, covered in lettuce and served with pickled carrot and cucumber.
The Bibimbap burger is Super Round with the egg and veggies, and Shaped Round with the burger and bun. Eat a meal like this once in a while, and no guilt when you do.
Free Cocktail at Social Eatz
To celebrate their burger victory, Social Eatz is offering a free cocktail with each Bibimbap burger order for the month of May!
Chef Angelo Sosa
Angelo describes his culinary creations as if he is talking about a woman. His vegetables are luscious, his entree’s are sexy and he confesses that he ‘makes love” to his food. This could all sound ultra cheesy, but somehow this Asian-inspired chef pulls it off.
Angelo is my pick to win, and I do admit it is partly due to his charm that makes everything he creates appear like a passionate romantic kiss — I mean dish. He’s won a bevy of challenges, showing he’s worthy of his sexy chef ways.
This half Dominican and half Italian, passion fruit drinking, simplicity-seeking chef is a fusion of cultures in the modern kitchen — and I want to eat in it. As he says, “The soul of his cuisine is ancient but reincarnated as an adventure that is young and daring.”
