It’s the holiday season, and while most of us may be thinking about the extravagant homemade meals we can look forward to pretty soon, Los Angeles abides by different rules. Sure, you can think about that experimental casserole you want to surprise your family with, but do that while you chow down on prestigious grub from some of L.A.’s finest chef’s! With just days to go before everyone has officially checked out for the holidays, there are only 4 days left of Cassell’s Hamburgers’ 70th Anniversary celebration featuring pop ups and collaborations — and only one day to experience the otherworldly talent of Chef Chris Oh.
This Sunday, December 8th, at 3 p.m., Chef Oh will work in collaboration with Chef Christian Page, K Pop Foods, and Cassell’s to feature their delicious monstrosity of a creation, the K Town Burger Extravaganza. A house-made beef patty topped with galbi jjim (braised beef short ribs), flame-torched mozzarella, sweet & salty pickles, and red onions — all resting upon a savory layer of K Pop Foods’ very own Kimchi Mayo — and sandwiched between a black and white sesame-riddled bun. In the food world, this is the ultimate K Town rep, but it won’t be around forever!
What’s even more exciting about Cassell’s 70th Anniversary Celebration is that the restaurant will donate $1 for every anniversary menu item sold, and $3 for every bottle of wine sold to No Kid Hungry. Eat good, do good, and feel good, all at once. It’s the perfect holiday event to get you out while also giving back, and supporting a good cause. Though this Cassell’s Hamburgers, Chef Chris Oh, and K Pop Foods collaboration will only be around for one day, the anniversary celebration doesn’t end until December 10th. You’ve got plenty of time (or a lack of it) to stop by for a delicious meal that simultaneously supports children who need delicious meals of their own. CO-WRITTEN BY ANTHONY C. STAFFORD
