Three years ago, Taiki Tsubota went viral for making “perfect” burgers that famously drew a 1,000-strong waiting list. Now, his new brand Bun Meat and Cheese ups the game and pays homage to the greasiest, guiltiest of pleasures the world has to offer.

His just-announced Bun Meat and Cheese World Tour is a gastronomical tour of the world’s landmark hamburgers starting with a tribute to New York City’s Shake Shack.
