There is a new burger princess in town and her name is Miss Harlem Shake 2021. The competition was tough, but the iconic Harlem burger joint crowned Toe Whoppin’ Tina.

Toe Whoppin’ Tina received the official Golden Cup award, free burgers for a year and a $1,000 gift. Additionally, she received a $500 donation to her favorite charity. She chose Food Bank for New York City, 116th Street Pantry in Harlem.

Toe Whoppin’ Tina is 32 and works as a children’s mascot entertainer, a promoter and a restaurant manager. Tina says she enjoys dancing, singing and parties. In her words, “I love people with a good sense of humor. I’m funny.”  

Tina’s favorite Harlem Shake meal is the Hot Mess burger and she believes she personifies a chocolate shake. When asked why she loves Harlem, Tina responded with a question, “Who doesn’t love Harlem?” We completely agree.

Congratulations Toe Whoppin’ Tina and Harlem Shake. Thank you for keeping the spirt of community and togetherness alive and well.
