Slater’s 50/50 Las Vegas’ Whale Burger will be featured on Netflix’s new culinary show “Fresh, Fried & Crispy” premiering June 9 exclusively on the streaming service. Daym Drops, the Grandfather of Food Reviews on YouTube with more than 250 million views, travels all around the country to find the best unknown fried dishes coming from the streets, fancy restaurants and home kitchens.
“The Whale Burger, our tribute to the secret echelon of Las Vegas high rollers, was the perfect item to share with Daym on ‘Fresh, Fried & Crispy’ as it’s topped with incredible ingredients like fried lobster tail, wagyu beef and gold dusted bacon,” said Cindy Sun, co-owner and general manager of Slater’s 50/50 Las Vegas. “This not-so-secret menu item honors the wonderful city of Las Vegas, and we’re excited to share it with viewers from around the world.”
Available only at the Slater’s 50/50 Las Vegas location, The Whale Burger features a fried lobster tail, one pound of wagyu beef, three slices of gold dusted “billionaire’s” bacon strips, truffle cheese, arugula, bacon jam, and roasted garlic aioli, sandwiched between a gold-dusted brioche bun. This $100 special menu item is served with Slater’s signature fries with bacon ketchup and includes a 375ML bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut Champagne. Just like a Casino Whale, the Whale Burger menu is hidden in plain sight. Guests can find the Whale Burger menu by touching NFC tags placed throughout the restaurant or by pointing their QR scanner at the whale tail mosaic.
