Then, Rahm heads west to San Francisco where he bites into a juicy Bison Tejano Burger at Roam Artisan Burgers, an all-natural twist on the American classic. Finally, at Lindy’s on 4th Avenue in Tucson, Rahm gets meat-drunk on a rock and roll Peek-a-Boo burger, a duo patty creation served up between double grilled-cheese sandwiches made with thick Texas toast.
Premiering Monday, May 16 at 10pm ET/PT “Meat on the Go”
Rahm Fama introduces viewers to some of his favorite meaty meals on the go. He begins his journey in Seattle at Tat’s Delicatessen, where they serve up their famous Tat’strami, a savory West Coast spin on the classic pastrami sandwich. Next, Rahm visits CeeDee’s Jamaican Kitchen in Tucson, Ariz., and digs into their rich and zesty Oxtail Stew. Finally, Rahm enjoys a masterful mobile meal at Le Truc, a gourmet bus-taurant in San Francisco where they cook up a savory and tender Fennel-Ginger Beef Braise that re-defines the meaning of takeout.
Meet Rahm Fama. Actually, Meat Rahm Fama! A chef and meat nerd originally from New Mexico, Rahm combs the country for the choicest cuts. He obsesses over meat with fellow chefs, local foodies, and passionate chowhounds across the United States, making several stops in each episode to sample their meaty fare. From mounds of meatballs in New York and chicken-fried steak in Texas to loaded gourmet hotdogs in Chicago and monster beef patties in Oregon, Rahm’s carnivorous curiosities uncover the most mouth-watering meats and the side dishes that so perfectly complete them. Rated “M” for Meat, vegetarians beware.
