Famed Quesadilla Maker All Flavor No Grease Will Debut New Food At This Festival

All Flavor No Grease has become a household name to foodies in Southern California. Although there’s a slight kitschiness to the name, the hype around one of Los Angeles’ premiere quesadilla makers is reaching monumental heights.   

What started out as a small quesadilla operation in the front yard of a house in Watts, California, has grown into a booming food truck business, specializing in ultra savory shrimp, steak and chicken quesadillas, thanks in part to more than 100K Instagram followers, a community of die-hard fans willing to wait hours for a taste, and – of course – delicious food.

Now, as All Flavor No Grease prepares for two upcoming food festivals, Hansen’s Natural Sodas Fresh Coat Mural Fest on Saturday, Oct. 7 and OOZEFEST 3 on Saturday Oct. 14, LA’s famed purveyor of quesadillas is making something that’s never been on the All Flavor No Grease menu — and never will be again.

The Flava Bomb, an original one-time only AFNG creation starts with a flour tortilla, filled with a three cheese blend of Colby Jack, cheddar, and mozzarella, then stuffed with steak and bacon. The final result is the equivalent to a money bag emoji of savory, crispy decadence that provides a seemingly endless cheese pull.  

“The next time I make this, it will be for my family,” Keith Garret, owner and operator of AFNG explained to FOODBEAST.

This melty, cheesy and crispy creation is exclusive to Hansen’s Natural Sodas Fresh Coat Mural Fest, at The Container Yard in DTLA’s Arts District, and OOZEFEST 3 at the MainPlace Mall in Santa Ana, Calif.

If you’re already salivating — there’s still time to plan ahead and get yourself a spot in line — you won’t find it anywhere else.

Ever Had A Cheesy Dumpling? This Food Truck Is Making It Reality

The Mad Dumplings Food Truck has attracted large crowds thanks in part to a robust menu of Asian-inspired dishes like Longanisa Dumpling with pork belly – a sweet, succulent longanisa sausage dumpling, topped with a sliver of grilled, marinated pork belly and a fresh strip of jalapeño.

Mad Dumplings has been gearing up for two major upcoming October food festivals, equipped with a Shrimp and Pork Stuffed Cheesy Dumpling that will give you serious FOMO if you happen to miss it.  

Starting with pan-fried cilantro and jalapeño, these four-cheese shrimp and pork dumplings are cooked and then topped with shredded melted Monterey Jack cheese – in case there wasn’t enough cheese on here.

On October 7 you’ll find Mad Dumplings serving up their exclusive Shrimp and Pork Stuffed Four Cheesy Dumpling at the Fresh Coat Mural Festival in DTLA’s Arts District, presented by Hansen’s Natural Sodas.

However, if that’s out of your way, there’s still one more chance to lock down this cheesy combination at Oozefest III – Foodbeast’s 3rd Annual Cheesy Food Festival, on Oct. 14 at the MainPlace Mall in Santa Ana.  

Get these cheesy dumplings while you can!

Take BBQ To The Next Level With This Massive Root Beer Glazed Pulled Pork Hot Pokket

Mess Hall Canteen is like a rolling fortress, serving hungry meat-lovers across Southern California.

Now, Mess Hall is gearing up for one of its most rigorous battles yet – Hansen’s Fresh Coat Mural Fest happening in DTLA’s Arts District on October 7.

Later, Mess Hall will be slinging at OOZEFEST 3, FOODBEAST’s third annual premiere Southern California Cheese Festival on October 14.

However, don’t think for one second that Mess Hall isn’t bringing heavy artillery to these culinary showdowns. If there’s one thing you should know about the purveyors of Giant BBQ Meat Shanks, it’s that they nothing they do is small.

So, in true oozey fashion, Mess Hall has reimagined a Hot Pocket, but in the cheesiest way possible.

Mess Hall’s Hansen’s Natural Soda Root Beer Glaze Hot Pokket is stuffed with Hansen’s root beer glazed pulled pork, aligot potatoes, and pickled cherries all stuffed inside a deep fried dough roll.

 

To make this dish even more unique, Mess Hall is serving it with a side of Hansen’s root beer glaze to dip in.

So, if you’re ready to battle with Mess Hall, we’ll see you at Hansen’s Fresh Coat Mural Fest, and OOZEFEST 3!

Deep Fried Cheesy Ramen Hot Pockets Are The College Food Mashup You’ve Been Dreaming Of

The Pho King Awesome Truck is one of Southern California’s most recognizable Asian-inspired food trucks, thanks to their delicious original creations like Spamusushi and Spicy Asian Tacos.  

Thanks to a partnership with Hansen’s Natural Soda, Pho King Awesome is getting ready to show off its cheesy side with a deep fried cheesy ramen patty you can only find for a limited time.

On October 7, Pho King Awesome Truck will be one of the many vendors at Fresh Coat Mural Festival in DTLA’s Arts District, serving up their limited-time item, which is a deep fried cheesy ramen patty, mixed with diced ham, Gouda and brie cheese.

Served with a crispy outer shell, Pho King Awesome’s ramen-based creation is  intensely creamy, and the perfect snack for any cheese-lover.

The Pho King Awesome Truck will also be serving up their deep fried cheesy ramen patty on October 14 at FOODBEAST’s OOZEFEST 3 event.

However, that’s not all. The deep fried cheesy ramen patty is taken to another level, as it is served on a bed of creamy cheese sauce made of feta, parmesan, cheddar cheese, sliced cherry tomatoes, Chiffonade basil, and – of course – crispy bacon bits for extra flavor and texture.

Be sure to come check out Fresh Coat Mural Festival October 7 in Downtown LA, or swing by FOODBEAST’s 3rd annual OOZEFEST on October 14.
