Australian foodie travels to New York just to try burger from a popular TikTok chef – before revealing if the epic journey was worth the effort

  • Shared a clip of the sandwich including layers of  ramen, meat, cheese and veg
  • Sandwiches come from  Rahim Mohamed who became TikTok famous last year

An Australian man has revealed how he travelled all the way to New York to try a TiKTok famous burger.

Adam Naaman from Sydney, flew to Brooklyn to buy an ‘Ocky burger’ from the Red Hook Food Corp,  which has become a viral sensation on TiKTok.

The 20-year-old student shared a clip of the sandwich including layers of meat, cheese, ramen and vegetables.

Writing in the now-viral clip, Adam said the burger was ’10 out of 10′ and he’d recommend it.

The sandwiches are the brainchild of Rahim Mohamed, a 32-year-old bodega manager, who became TikTok famous for whipping up wild sandwiches.

He became particularly known for putting unusual items into his creations –  including mozzarella sticks, Rice Krispies Treats, cotton candy, and pop-tarts.

The humble shop has become a tourist attraction with Rahim making up to 100 sandwiches a week – on what he calls ‘the Ocky Way’.

Speaking last year to the New York Post, Rahim explained that customers come in asking for wild concoctions including  bacon, egg and cheese between two danishes with cotton candy and a classic breakfast sandwich with gummy worms.

The name ‘Ocky way’ comes from Rahim’s nickname, ‘general Ock’ which is an anglicised way to pronounce ‘akhi’ – an Arabic term of endearment meaning brother.

Rahim, who moved to the US from Yemen in 1999, started running his family’s bodega in 2007 and soon started whipping up his sandwiches.

In June 2020, he started posting the recipes on Tiktok and Instagram.

The sandwiches are certainly a hit with Adam’s fans, with many sharing their excitement on TikTok.  

‘Bro I’d love to try one of his burgers ay they look so bomb,’ said one.

‘Did the same thing in January brother the man is a king,’ added another.

‘Bro living my dream,’ commented a third.

‘Going all the way to nyc to go to red hook love it,’ joked a fourth.
