Why Anthony Bourdain Had Major Beef With Kobe Sliders

Anthony Bourdain favored good quality beef in his burgers, but there was one particular burger trend that he absolutely could not get on board with: Kobe sliders.

The issue for Bourdain was that grinding such an exquisite steak to make a burger meant it was impossible to appreciate the quality of the beef's original texture and taste.

If you see Kobe sliders on a menu, the chef advised on his show "A Cook’s Tour" to "turn on your heels and leave". The quality of the beef is simply not appropriate for a slider.

Bourdain thought that ordering Kobe sliders was more about "bragging rights" and "bro culture" than enjoying the experience of eating the luxurious meat (via Town & Country).
