Bachi Burger: Where East Meets West

Posted on

By Gregory Escolta

What better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with a classic American Cookout? This year we decided to try something a little different, however.  While Executive Chef Marcos Belfiore was searching for some inspiration he found exactly what he was looking for: Hot Dogs with different themed toppings from the Vietnamese style Banh Mi Dog to the Hawaiian Dog.  To take it a step further, he envisioned the same hot dogs being accompanied with our signature homemade burgers to make everybody happy.

Understanding his vision I suggested he look into a small burger joint in Las Vegas that I frequented regularly called Bachi Burger.  Their unique twists on the classic burger were unforgettable.  You could smell the traditional Habachi grill cooking their signature Wagyu beef from down the street.  You can order from an assortment of burgers or customize your own.  My personal favorite is the Simple Wagyu Burger with Gruyere cheese, swiss fried onion rings and some ketchup.  We hope that you are able to find some inspiration through food as we all have here at Catering Central.  For more information about our customizable menu’s feel free to ask us anytime by phone or email.

Healthy Snack Choices in Your Company’s Kitchen

Posted on

It has been said that sitting is the new smoking – yet the majority of American adults work jobs where they sit all day long. Along with taking frequent breaks, the addition of standing desks, and basic chair exercises, office workers can improve their overall health by sticking to nutritious snacks. But, are healthy snacks available in your office? Here’s how you know:


  • Go as natural as possible
    Can you pronounce all the ingredients in a packaged food? If you want to eat healthier snacks, get used to reading labels. Look for items with few ingredients, and ones that you can say out loud.
  • Limit sugar
    The American Heart Association states that men can safely eat 37.5g, and women can eat 25g of sugar per day. When choosing a snack, try to keep the sugars as low as possible – remember – added sugar is highly addictive.
  • High protein/Low carb
    Fill up on protein rather than carbohydrates, and you’ll fuel your body in a more efficient way. Excess carbs turn into sugar – if you don’t burn it, it becomes fat.

If your company is planning an upcoming corporate event, let Catering Central take care of the food. We believe that food can transcend simple nourishment, harnessing the power to connect people.
