What is this? Veggie burgers? It got plant root
coming out of it. Oh, frog legs. I’m disgusted. Woo! Welcome back to Basic
to Bougie, the best- BB! … in the whole wide world. One of y’all ate something bad. Bougie. I’m Justina Valentine,
your guest host for the day. So, we have the basic
to the bougie, so it’s sort of like when you
(beep). They might have to cut
that whole part. Whole thing. You know what it is,
Basic to Bougie where we try three different
kinds of two different foods and figure out that,
you know what? Sometimes basic food
can be bougie. Or the bougie food can be basic. I hope you guys are hungry. Hey- Because this is Basic to Bougie. To Bougie.
Ding. Basic time, guys. Mandela! I probably shouldn’t say that
for my people. Coming up. What is this? What is it?
Chicken fingers. No, that’s bread. Sliders? Yeah, it feels like a burger. Oh, oh.
What’s in the burger? What’s in the middle?
I almost got it. Do you smell it? Is this tofu (beep)? Veggie burgers?
Oh. Okay, I could do veggie burgers. As long as it wasn’t
no tofu (beep). Now I finally have buns. Oh, I get it. Yeah, get it? Like-
Like her butt. You guys are like
really slow today. No, man, like look at this
(beep). That’s a big piece of something. This last one looks
kind of fire, though. I want to get this out
of the way, because it has blue cheese
crumbles and I hate blue cheese. Yeah, mushroom (beep) Hey, let’s get this out the way.
Okay, okay. Oh, wow. Is it good? No, it’s green.
It’s like all the way green. Not bad. You ever take a (beep)
that looks like this color? Yes, Justina, we’ve taken a (beep)
this color before. Yeah. I don’t think
it’s that bad. It’s just real healthy. Yeah, it tastes like health. It got plant root
coming out of it. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Like it’s
a lot of plants in here. It looks like actual grass. Like spinach and (beep). Yeah. That’s not very good. It wasn’t good at all. No.
Now we go on to this avocado- Yes. … corn chip burger? Please. When you flip it upside
down, Tim, it tastes better. Oh. When you flip it upside down,
it tastes better? Because the air oxidizes
and hits it from the back. This tastes like
an oatmeal cookie. Am I bugging? I can’t taste the patty at all. They’re trying to hide it
in guacamole. Whatever that sauce is,
it’s saving it. Got a little sweet,
tangy something something. Yeah, yeah, it’s the sauce. There’s a lot going on
in the burger, though. There’s like beans. Yeah, there’s beans
all up in this. That’s not bad.
It’s not bad. You about to go vegetarian? No, hell no. Hell no,
let’s not be ridiculous. I’m just ready to get to the one I think is going
to taste the best. Woo! Here we go. Okay, now this looks
like a real burger. Flip it upside down.
Yeah. Okay, fine I’ll go upside down. Now, this tastes
like a real burger. Look at that bun. This might be one of those
impossible burgers. It’s tasty. Y’all think we’ll be upset when
we find out what this (beep) is? It’s a veggie burger, dog,
it’s not going to be no animal. What veggies can you fake
to taste this good? Science, dog, science
is crazy. Yeah. Let me tell you something,
this was cooked on the grill. It might be veggie, but it was
cooked by a black man, and that’s a for sure
you right on. Is it?
Mm-hmm. If I could get a veggie burger
like this, I’d eat it. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a really good substitution,
and it tastes good, but I could tell
it’s not real meat. I think if no one told me,
I wouldn’t be able to tell. Let’s rank.
This is the most expensive.
You don’t agree? I was going to say,
the best tasting one is probably the cheapest. Yeah.
You think so? Because I feel like you
got to do a lot of (beep) to it to make it taste like meat. But this (beep) ain’t cheap.
Look at this! It does have
these little blue … Is this blue cheese? Yeah, blue cheese crumbles. No, it’s fake. So, then that’s probably
the most expensive. Yes.
Man, possibly. This burger tastes great,
and I feel like- It’s going to be
the cheapest one. It’s also on an expensive bun. Oh, because did you see
the shine on it? Compare the buns. Yeah. You want this on your burger. You pay a little bit more
for that. But then what’s the meat though?
And don’t forget it has avocado. This is tough, man. I’m going like this, that’s my
vote but you two, you know- That’s hers. What you got?
I’m agreeing. I’m with Justina. All right,
I’m with the team. Harry! Potter. Let me read it. You guys ready? Cheapest, $14.00, guac burger.
Gluten free and vegan- Damn. … from a fast food
vegan restaurant. This one, huh? Mm-hmm. Second place, $16.00, falafel
burger, with hummus and feta. Oh, it was some real cheese
on there? And the most expensive one,
$20.00 Silicon Valley-developed veggie burger.
Damn. You were right when you said
it takes a lot. Silicon Valley, bro. You got to trust your gut. I know! I don’t mind letting
someone else lead, bro, we needed you
to step up, bro. I’m just really insecure. Oh, that came back up. I guess you didn’t want to go
against us because you didn’t want
to have any real beef. That was nice actually. All right, well,
only one thing left to do. Bougie round! We’ve got to save ourselves,
yo. Stephon! Marbury? No, Arkell. Hm. It’s gushy. Why do I have to reach so far? Feels like a breaded
chicken cutlet. Oh, oh it’s a crab. It’s a- Is it a soft-shell crab? It’s a soft-shell crab, yeah. You know, if I felt it
I would know. What is this?
Oh, frogs legs. Ah! No! Cheers. Frog legs, how y’all feel? I mean, it smells great.
A lot of seasoning. I’m disgusted,
I’m not going to lie. It’s like the butt
and two legs. See that? Probably jumped
a good two feet. Before someone snatched it. Before someone snatched it. He said, “Hey, guys. Well I …
Did you know that I … Well.” Aw, Kermy! Let’s leave
the thick mama for last. You want to try the little
buffalo sauce in the middle? No, I want to try this little
teriyaki situation of frog legs. Is a frog an amphibian? Yeah. Yes. One of the very few. Oh, that’s good. “Oh, I was a jumper. I’ma jump” “Not right now, Ms. Piggy, I-”
Oh, (beep)! That’s the leg for real!
I thought they took it out. That’s not bad. I just wasn’t
expecting the bone. Very chewy. Got a little …
It’s like mad garlicky. That’s really good. I think
it’s just the way it’s seasoned. I was so disgusted
at first to try it. No, it’s bomb, I’m telling you. They all say it tastes
like chicken, right? Tastes like chicken/fish/ Yeah. Not going to lie,
pleasantly delicious. So, we eating frog thighs? Mm-hmm. Yeah. I’m good. I had two bites. Not bad. The whole bone-in thing
was freaking me out. Yeah, be careful. “It’s my-” Now, hold on now.
The buffalo is where it’s at. I mean, you throw buffalo sauce
on anything. On anything. Yeah, you can’t go wrong. You could tell
when I like something. My voice change.
You put the expert face on now. Let me tell you something
right now, put a little buffalo on that
thing, come back to you, huh? I say, when it jump
out in the cage, the buffalo jumping back in.
That’s what I said. When I said it.
And let me tell you something, and that’s a for sure
you right on. I like the buffalo but I like
the scampi sauce one better. I’m a fan of the buffalo. What do you think? I don’t know, I’m still hm. Buffalo.
“I.” See what this deep-fried guy
talking about. Is it a bone in the fried one?
I don’t think so. This is a big frog. Wow. Hm. Really good.
Mm-hmm. Tastes like a chicken cutlet
breading over frog. This-
Is good. … is good! Yeah.
Mm-hmm. Look at you.
You bougie now, bro. I didn’t expect to like it
this much. I’ll kill a Kermit, and that’s
a for sure you right on. You know they eat 160 million
frog legs a year in France? You are just a fountain
of useless information. [French language]. Ah, [French language]. That means, “Would you like
to touch my butt?” Let’s rank.
I recommend frog legs. Yeah. You’re an expert now. How are we going to rank this? You think this one is more
just because it’s bigger? Anything breaded and fried
going to cost a little bit more. You think so? Oh, got a bone.
Got a butt cheek. I would think this one’s
the most expensive. Because it’s fried? It just seems like it took
the longest to prepare. Yeah, this is more than fried. Yeah.
This is more than fried. Yeah. They did some care
with that batter. Yeah. Buffalo cheapest?
I think so. And then the lemon
pepper garlic- Yeah.
Yeah. In the middle.
And fried most expensive? If that’s what we’re doing,
that’s what we’re doing. Montrell! All right. Montrell! Montrell.
Switch it up. What we do? Shoot, man. Off off, huh? Off off.
Wow. $8.00 Cajun fried frog legs
from New Orleans-style restaurant. Damn.
You know when you’re wrong? Yeah, but you’re not mad at it. I’m not mad at it.
Yeah. Because I went with my gut. I’m a little mad because my gut
was telling me different, but I wanted to go
with the team. If
the frog, you’re sleep. I don’t get it. $15.00 buffalo from a bar.
Oh, (beep). Yeah, no, we got it
all messed up. Yeah. We got it all wrong. Damn. Mm-hmm. $45.00 French-sauteed frog legs from a fine
dining French restaurant. Well, that’s disappointing. I mean, frog legs is not
something I eat all the time, so I don’t feel bad about it,
but however, I did enjoy these frog legs. I loved them all-
Surprisingly, yeah. … they were all really tasty. I mean, I’m telling you. I’m not upset
about none of them. How you guys feel? Froggish. You saw what I did. You killed those frog legs. You went in.
I had to hop into it. Mm-hmm (affirmative).
Jump right on it. You know what?
That joke was a tadpole- -Ler opposite of what I thought
you were going to say. Okay! Okay. Ah! Justina’s pretty fly but she’s also a fly catcher. Toad-ally! Hey, man, when I’m thirsty,
I want to … When the bullfrogs, brr. Well, hey, guys.
Thanks for watching. Basic to Bougie. To Bougie.
