7 Original Burger Recipes with Chef Alvin Cailan for Bob's Burgers

May 01,2021

Teaming up with Chef Alvin Cailan to Create 7 Unique Burgers of the Day!
One of the most exciting parts of the DC X Bob’s Burgers collaboration was creating the unique Burger of the Day recipes that can be found throughout the animations in the collection. Coming up with the burger names inspired by actual skate tricks was the easy part—Wes Kremer and Ish Cepeda helped out with that. But making sure the burgers were actually tasty was a little harder. Luckily, we had Chef Alvin Cailan of Burger Show fame to help out with that part.

We sent Wes and Ish to meet up with Alvin at his butcher shop, Amboys, to assist in creating the burgers. And when we say “assist”, we really mean that they got to watch him cook, and then eat, all seven burgers. And when we say “all seven burgers”, we really mean that they ate all seven burgers in the matter of a few hours. Not a bad gig. 

So if you wanna learn from a world-renowned burger chef and take your burgers to the next level, check out the videos below.


Meet Chef Alvin Cailan

Chef Alvin Cailan’s rise to prominence began when he opened his own food truck in Los Angeles. Playfully named Eggslut, the truck served affordable yet mouthwatering egg sandwiches, often drawing lines over two hours long and now has 5 US and 7 international locations—from London to Kuwait. Chef Alvin is also host of First We Feast's The Burger Show, and has recently taken Los Angeles by storm with his latest restaurant Amboy, selling some of the city's best burgers and offering high end meats and other goods. And if that's not enough, in 2020 he put out his first cookbook, Amboy: Recipes From the Filipino-American Dream.

But, Chef Alvin’s success story is an unlikely one. As a young Filipino immigrant in East LA, Alvin had to find his own path to success. He got his first job washing dishes at a retreat house at the age of 15. By the time he graduated high school, he was the kitchen manager. But Chef Alvin’s skills in the kitchen are only matched by his ambition and entrepreneurial attitude.
