Fresh Off The Boat w/ Eddie Huang [Season 2 Trailer]

In Fresh Off the Boat season two, Eddie takes you on a global excursion examining cities in transition. From the abandoned Packard Plant in Detroit to migrant Kyrgyz workers in Moscow to the yurts of the Gobi Desert, we see the wreckage that global capitalism has left behind and get a glimpse of what could be its next meal in the Mongolian steppes. From high-powered meetings with the pandas of Chengdu and pasta with self-proclaimed celebrity gangster Dave Courtney, we ask the people on the ground whether the changes we’re seeing and the progress we’ve been promised are actually helping the every day man in his pursuit of happiness. Of course, this all happens through the lens of food, across a table, on a plate. Fuck with the kid.

The Douche Burger | The World’s Most Expensive Hamburger

New York City food truck 666 Burger unveiled a devilish new menu item last week, a $666 burger that is either ridiculously blithe or a genius marketing ploy. Either way, their concoction is, by many accounts, the world’s most expensive food truck hamburger. Think Kobe beef, covered in gold leaf, topped with everything from foie gras to lobster, and all wrapped up in three hundred-dollar bills. The “Douche Burger” is so pricey your wallet may spontaneously fold in on itself in protest. Your stomach might, too.

Sizzling Bacon Candy

Sizzling Bacon Candy not only tastes like bacon, it also turns your tongue into a frying pan. As soon as you douse your mouth in candy, the sizzling sound makes it seem like you’re cooking bacon over a campfire. Except it’s in your head and the campfire is your burning passion for bacon (and your saliva which is what activates the candy). The crackling will continue until the candy dissolves into nothing. Lots of things taste like bacon, but how many sound like bacon? You get two .34 oz. packets of carbonated candy, for a total of .7 oz. in each box.

Now in the East Village, it’s just down the street from Stuy-Town, the tree-lined, private “white people projects” where Eddie and Evan share a one-bedroom apartment.
