Segment 2, beginning 26:33: Kansas City chefs opt for pop-ups and ghost kitchens when they want to try something new.
The food is very real, but it's only available for delivery or pick-up. There's no restaurant to dine in at, even if you wanted to. In addition to helping established restaurants survive the golden age of take-out, it's also a way to explore different menu ideas, without the pricey overhead of opening a separate restaurant. The Food Critics offer their favorites so you can try them too.
The "Big Slick Virtually Talented Show" streams live on Saturday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. on the Big Slick YouTube and Facebook channels.
