King’s Hawaiian Created Limited and Exclusive Menu Items With Hot SoCal Restaurants

There is no better way to kick off the hot summer season than with even hotter dishes coming out of Los Angeles and Orange County’s coolest eateries.

Foodbeast has partnered with the legendary loaf makers at King’s Hawaiian® to bring the Taste of Aloha to a restaurant near you.  Earlier this month, six must-visit restaurants debuted some exciting, limited time dishes featuring everyone’s favorite King’s Hawaiian®’s buns. Here’s a rundown of what these awesome restaurants threw down to get the summer started: 

If you didn’t already know, the birria hype is real and here to stay! The lovely folks at Birrieria Guadalajara got us hanging ten with their birria stuffed King’s Hawaiian® sliders with melted monterey jack and mozzarella cheese, onions and cilantros served with a strong helping of savory consomé sauce for dipping. 

Dog Haus brought the heat to the party, then tore the house down with their Honolulu hot chicken tender sando on King’s Hawaiian® Pretzel buns, doused with miso aioli and sweet chili sauce, topped with pickled carrots, onions, and wasabi furikake. 

Sampa might have stole the show with the tasteful Filipino spin on the classic Philly favorite.  The hot, new restaurant out of Los Angeles created a “Fili” cheese steak in King’s Hawaiian® rolls using bistek filet mignon, peppers, onions and a signature queso de bola sauce.

The Huntington Beach House set the summer mood right with a classic Monte Cristo on french toasted King’s Hawaiian® bread, mesquite turkey, smoked ham, and swiss cheese with strawberry preserves and powdered sugar.

Love Hour is always here for a good time — this time with an aloha appropriate Hawaiian plate, featuring one of LA’s best smash burgers on a King’s Hawaiian® slider, tasty macaroni salad, fried rice and a juicy chicken skewer.  

Go Go Bird came through and created a handheld fit for a Foodbeast, debuting a fried spam and Jidori chicken sando using King’s Hawaiian® buns, wrapped in nori, tangy pineapple kimchi, and topped with creamy cheese sauce napé.  Every dish featured above is wonderfully unique and absolutely tasty. Better act fast, because everything in the King’s Hawaiian® Taste of Aloha collaboration is available now at each respective restaurant, but only for a limited time.

Do not let these Summer nights slip away without getting your hands (and mouth) on all of Knott’s Berry Farm’s refreshing new night time treats. On select evenings between now and September 5, 2022, you and your fellow Foodbeasts can soak in all the goodies Knott’s Summer Nights has waiting for you.

Knott’s Summer Nights festivities begin at 5:30pm until park closing time, so there is plenty of time to fill your appetite, and then some. While everything can be ordered a la carte, the best way to get started is by purchasing an exclusive Summer Nights Tasting Card at the park so you can feast on six of their excellent offerings.  

As usual, our resident Foodbeasts took the time to experience Knott’s Summer Nights for themselves, to guide your mouths toward a feast worthy of your Summer memories.  Some of our favorites included corn on the cob with lemon butter dusted with Old Bay seasoning or ranch and buffalo flavor, waffle chicken sliders with honey mustard coleslaw, Cowboy Stew chili with Kielbasa and a waffle biscuit, Boysenberry Dippin’ Dots ice cream, and the peach and pineapple shaved ice.

An assortment of exclusive, refreshing alcoholic/non-alcoholic beverages are included in the tasting card, like the sparkling watermelon lemonade, raspberry mojito, blood orange michelada, mango smoothie and much more. 

If all of that doesn’t already scream “Summer!”, building your own s’mores and roasting them around the fire pits located near the Calico Mine Stage may do it for you. Aside from the dozens of food tasting opportunities, Knott’s Summer Nights also has an assortment of lawn games and three main “party” zones with live musical performances to keep you entertained well into the evening.

Spring is here once more, which means the Boysenberries are back at Knott’s Berry Farm for their annual Boysenberry Festival. A brand new menu awaits you, with some returning favorites that are guaranteed to tickle your taste buds. Between now and April 24th, you can grab unique dishes with Boysenberry flair while enjoying all the entertainment the park has to offer.   

With your exclusive Boysenberry Festival Tasting Card, you’ll be able to enjoy some one of a kind dishes, including: Boysenberry Cowboy Chili with macaroni and cheese with Fritos, Meatballs in Boysenberry BBQ Sauce, and even Boysenberry beers, cocktails and seltzers.  

If those dishes don’t completely satisfy your palate, there’s a bountiful harvest of treats to enjoy throughout the park. Be sure to bring a friend or two— or six, because you’ll need some help chowing down the Foodbeast sized a-la-carte items like: the Monster Boysenberry Pulled Pork or the Grande Nachos with Boysenberry Salsa. You can’t end the day without dessert, so we have to mention the massive “Boy Oh Boy, Now That’s a Cookie” deep fried chocolate chip cookie with boysenberry jam and ice cream.

Knott’s Berry Farm is transformed into a Boysenberry paradise only a few weeks out of the year, so make sure to bring your appetite because there are a lot of drinks, dishes and delights to enjoy throughout the park. Be quick, these goodies go away on April 24th.

Chipotle adds a new protein option to their menu, just in time for the changing seasons.

Starting on Monday, September 27, the tender and delicious Smoked Brisket option will be available at all Chipotle locations for a limited time, fresh and ready to be burrito wrapped, or topped with guac in a bowl.
