Mall Food Court Hacks Taste Test

Today we hacked the mall food court Let's talk about that

(upbeat music) (flame whooshing) Good mythical morning! We're going on tour to bring our comedy and music to your town with shows in September and November all over the southeast, southwest, and a few other spots Get your tickets now at RhettAndLinkLivecom before they're gone Yes Now, there are roughly 47,000 shopping malls throughout America and as the ancient Reddit proverb goes, "If you've seen one mall, you've seen them all

" Yeah, and the same goes for the food courts inside of those malls, but where you may see a bunch of tired food franchises, circling gloms of angsty teens with AirPods dangling out of their earholes, we see an opportunity There's arguably no place more right for menu item cross-pollinization That's a tough word to say Cross-pollination Right, cause that's how it's said

Menu item cross-pollination, than the food court It's time for 'These Mall Food Court Hacks Are So Insane They'll Mince, Bake, and Fry Your Brain' Today we're gonna give you some reasons to go back to the food court Yeah, we're gonna be creating completely original dishes using only food from the most common and popular food court fast food chains, and also the ones that were available to us here in LA Let's hack it up

(lively music) Breakfast is often overlooked in the food court so this first one is for those nine am senior citizen speed walkers This is our version of the All-American Slam breakfast, the Mall-American Slam Oh, I get it

Rhett, you're gonna do the honors while I'll walk you through it, okay? Okay We're gonna wanna make an omelet with some bacon and some hash browns on the side Oh yeah And some OJ to wash it down Now, first, you're gonna wanna go over to the Panda Express and get yourself some fried rice

'Cause this is the only place you can get eggs in the food court And I have once asked the people at the Panda Express to just make me an egg and I was asked to leave the mall I was escorted out by security So you gotta do it this way Which you need to take those chopsticks and you need to meticulously pick out all of the scrambled egg bits

Easy Go for it Take your time We got all the time in the world There's one piece

If you get a little bit of rice, that's fine – [Rhett] I'm gonna shake the rice off That's two pieces That's gonna take a while Josh already did this

We do wanna save this rice We're gonna be dumping a lot of things into this giant bucket Now, this is not any normal bucket, or at least this emulates something that's not a normal bucket This is from Hot Dog on a Stick Now, they use this thing to make their lemonade

We know about this because our very own Matt Carney used to work at Hot Dog on a Stick and he told us that if you go to any Hot Dog on a Stick and just say "I know Matt Carney" you're gonna have your way with Hot Dog on a Stick And so we went to one and we got one Link, why don't you throw all the rest of that rice Basically, what they would do, they would just put lemons in there Yeah, they made their lemonade that way but we're gonna make something later, so just put it in there

But in the meantime, I'm just gonna stamp this down to try to create some kind of– You wanna create the egg part of the omelet that can then be folded over If you're gonna push that hard, I gotta push up on the desk so you don't break it Good gracious, man! (Rhett grunting) Okay, okay (metal clanking) Oh, hey, that's a good technique Let's see what you've got

As you can see, it's turning into a flat omelet – [Rhett] The same thing it was Okay, so, and then you wanna go over to Sbarro Yeah, you are And get yourself a slice of sausage and pepperoni pizza

And in our omelet, we're gonna want cheese and sausage so you just pull those off Man, don't put it on the ground! (Rhett grunts) Gosh! It's gotta stay sanitary! That was a test, Link You passed I'm just gonna take– There's a lot of picking involved, you know? I washed my hands It's like you're sitting in the middle of the food court picking off things

All right so you got that in there so now you're gonna wanna take that omelet, as you do and just gently fold it over Gently fold it over Just sort of push it into an omelet Look at that that's a beautiful omelet All right what's next Link? Great, now on the side we want some hash browns and some bacon

So first you're gonna go to Charlie's Philly steaks and you're gonna get their fries and then you're gonna stomp them down into a hash brown form now I'm creating a little bit– Oh, a lattice? A crosshatch pattern Yeah, that's nice It's just kind of an approximation There you go

You don't want to hit your omelet You don't want to unfold that omelet Push your omelette just to the side (Rhett grunting) Oh, that's actually kind of working Yeah it is

But we knew it would work because(laughs) Yeah we talked to Carney All right so then you've got your hash browns on the side Then just slide the hash browns over here Go over to Dairy Queen

Order yourself a chicken bacon ranch sandwich Done And then take off the bacon as your side of, guess what? – [together] Bacon First of all not a lot of bacon on this so you just set it down there next to the other ingredients That bacon is very sad

It seems a bit undercooked as well Throw that in there for later And now we'll just need a side of orange juice Now they don't sell orange juice at Orange Julius, they sell this like sugary concoction of orange sugar water So what you're gonna do is go get some mall fountain water

It's clean and– – [Together] Water it down Just to make it palatable And you want to take one of your chopsticks and stir that up, go get that I'm on board That's a good idea All right and then grab your fork which you brought from home because I don't eat with plastic You're just gonna just grab, you know? Just get as much of it as you want

That's really good And there you have it you've started off to a great day of spending the rest of your time at the food court That's breakfast (upbeat music) Okay, spending that whole day of the mall You've worked up an appetite for dinner and we're going to show you how to make a fine dining experience in the mall food court by making a Beef Wellington

Cause you deserve it That's right or as we call it a Beef Maul-ington Okay So we're gonna be doing a couple of things here we're gonna have steak, ham, mushrooms We got to have pastry 'cause that's all part of the Beef Wellington, but we're gonna start with the meat

So you're gonna head over to Charlie's You're gonna order yourself some Philly cheesesteak sandwiches with extra mushrooms– Okay and some club sandwiches I've got some ham here then I'm gonna get down to the bottom of and this Philly cheesesteak has steak and extra mushrooms as you've said So I'm just placing the ham over there for you, Link

And you want to keep the meat in separate piles because they're gonna be doing different jobs in this final product I got a lot of meat and I got a little bit of mushrooms here, but okay Okay so you got your individual piles Now you're gonna head over to Wetzel's Pretzels and get yourself a Wetzel Dog And you're gonna take that, and Link, if you could de-wiener

Oh, well you can de-wiener it, and I'll look away I didn't know it was gonna be like that Just grab it and pull Okay, Got it So I've got what they call a mess over here but I think I've succeeded at making a meat pile

It's all of this sub-topping goes in the bucket Okay, now you're gonna head to Cinnabon You're gonna need to order four cinnamon rolls and while you're at it go ahead and order yourself a side of icing because you're gonna need that later for some gluing Now you're gonna wanna unroll That is a dream

You're gonna be tempted just to eat them but, – [Together] Don't! Don't lose sight of the Holy Grail Okay You can use this tray I need, I need some saran wrap Oh, here you go use this tray

Yeah That's where that tray comes in Now you're gonna take these and like you're gonna unroll all four of those side by side You know what, I can help you because this is, this is a job for buddies So they put an outer layer that you don't need Throw that in the bucket and then it exposes this, this snail roll

Oh yeah, look at that You just throw that out then when it gets to the end, that part right there Good, yeah, you want to take that middle part and just eat it Mm-hmm And throw the rest in the bucket

Okay so now you've got a bed and you know what they actually even though this is pretty good, actually made one that's even more rollable Right here Oh, wow! You mean we could have just grabbed that this entire time? Yep, okay, so now what do I do with all the meats? So where's your mushrooms? There's the mushroom pile They went really light on the mushrooms Yeah

(offscreen laughter) So throw some mushrooms in there Like just in here? Yeah, and now take the ham Ham just creates a blanket across the whole thing That's like, that's a full layer there Oh yeah

Now you're gonna take all that steakum Now just keep in mind that you're sitting in the middle of the food court doing this and everybody's watching It's like people gathering around someone playing an 80's arcade game And now you're going to take the wiener and just rest your wiener down into your meat, okay? Okay Okay and now Link, I'm gonna let you do the honors so you're gonna take this and you're gonna roll it into a beautiful final product Okay, so like that? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And then and as you're doing it You gotta release it– You've got to release it from the wrap a little bit Oh yeah Yeah, we've got this extra icing here, Link Right when you get to the end, I'm gonna create a little bit of a glue layer

Oh, you are? You gonna glue it up Right here you just– This is when you have to whisper You've already been using your fingers We're instinctively whispering (offscreen laughter) There you go

And just– That's very appetizing Just get it in there And I'm gonna give it a nice loving squeeze Now, they didn't really have faith in us so we have another one of these to– I mean you wanna compare? But I got to say You want to compare? It's pretty good So here's one that they made beforehand

I think ours looks better (laughing) Look at that Okay, I'm gonna create a cross-section here All right I'm gonna cut the, the 'hero one' we call it Oh yeah

Everyone's gather around the food court and then you show 'em the goods You show 'em the goods! It's grabbing on to the bottom You just show em the goods Whoa-ho-ho-ho-ho! Yeah, slice it up Look at that okay, here we go

See and there's gonna be a line of people who've been watching and now you just, you slice it up and dole it out This is kind of hard for this to remain together Okay, just throw it on a plate (clock ticking) There we go And do you pick it up and eat it like a sandwich? Nope, no, this is fancy town! But I am, but we're still at the mall, so I'm gonna eat it like this

Eat your heart out Gordon Ramsay Fancy [Upbeat music] All right, you've had breakfast, you've had dinner and now you want to leave the mall, right? No, you want to stay at the mall food court and make dessert Yes How about some cake pops? So we're gonna make Paul Blart mall pops

Whoa All right so you go to Mrs Fields, you get yourself some chocolate chip cookies Spatter those things up Bam, bam, bam, throw them down on there

Get some icing from Cinnabon, and then– When they start coming through you know you're ready You're gonna take that and make a cake pop dough using that and the Cinnabon icing That looks good Okay, and now for the pop part of the cake pop, you get these from Hot Dog on a Stick, of course so there is one stick and here's the other one

Okay so you're gonna get this all together Of course these go in the bucket Divide it into two equal sized portions And then you're gonna wanna ball it up Put it on there, I'll ball mine up

Look at that Now I'm gonna make a sweet option and you're gonna make a sour option I'm a savory man For the sweet option I've got some Popcornopolis caramel corn I want to create a coating– Look at that

The stomper is– Yeah, you gotta just get all the meat that has been acquired so far Is there any on the bottom? No, it's clean Oh, good I mean there's a little bit of something but, you know It'll all come out in the wash

(smashing) I'm gonna roll my cake pop in this stuff Okay, and for the sour version what you're gonna want to do, is you need to go back to Hot Dog on a Stick because it's the only place you can get straight-up citric acid because they put this in their lemonade, again, "Matt Carney sent me" That's your keyword, you'll get in It's two words, Matt and Carney You're gonna wanna get some sweet and sour sauce from the Panda

Oh yeah (offscreen laughing) I don't know what you guys are laughing at back there, but Maybe what's happening over here And if you want some chocolate drizzle you can go over to Baskin Robbins Ask for some of that and then I'm just gonna– Yours looks really good

Drizzle that on the cake pop I think if I had to choose one I might choose the sweet version (laughter) I'm gonna go ahead and eat this Oh god (offscreen laughter) Ugh! This is a good idea

I'm loving this Hmmm Okay, I need to take the rest of that popcorn drop it back in your, drop it back in there, and again, in good Mythical More, we're gonna stop all this down and create something magical with it because that's what Matt Carney would do Mm-hmm, a stir fry Thank you for liking, commenting and subscribing
