Bob’s Burgers Review: Bet it All on Black

It’s Sunday morning, and that can only mean one thing: last night, I made and ate a hamburger. Specifically, a burger featured on the hit series, Bob’s Burgers.


The Bet it All on Black Burger [S5:E5 “Best Burger”]

About the Episode

Bob and Linda compete at the “Warf it Down Food Festival” in the Best Burger Contest against local semi-famous Pakistani chef Skip Marooch and Bob’s archenemies, Jimmy Pesto. But when they discover they’ve forgotten the key ingredient, it’s up to Tina, Gene, and Louise to navigate the specialty food store, avoid the novelty food vendors, and save the day. All in twenty minutes or less, because the clock it ticking.

About the Burger

For the first time in a long time I’m back to a cookbook recipe, having found black garlic at a local store.

The burger is a basic burger topped with a slice of mozzarella cheese and a homemade spicy black garlic mayo, served on baby spinach.

The Response

The burger was good but did not live up to the hype of the show. If I were entering a burger contest and I had to choose one of Bob’s Burgers to make, it wouldn’t be this one.

Come back next week when we’ll try a new, as-yet-to-be-determined burger!
