Knott’s Berry Farm’s Summer Nights Just Made Your Evenings At The Park Even Tastier

@yungfoodbeast Whole squad devoured the menu at @Knott’s Berry Farm ♬ original sound – Foodbeast

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’s Plant-based Chorizo Just Debuted Nationwide

Chipotle has long been at the forefront of fast food vegan options and now they’re looking to boost their plant-based offerings with an all new Plant-Based Chorizo. The Plant-Based Chorizo at Chipotle is a tantalizing new vegan option that captures the deep, rich flavor of chorizo, without compromise.

This latest option is sure to bring nothing but the good stuff, which means using ingredients you can actually pronounce: Spanish smoked paprika, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, chipotle chili peppers, extra virgin olive oil, and tomatoes. The delicious result is a charred and grilled Chorizo with a bold, smokey flavor that just happens to be 100% vegan. Best of all, it contains 16 grams of plant-based protein in every serving.

Foodbeasts Elie and Oscar had a chance to try the Plant-Based Chorizo and were not disappointed, giving their nod of approval to just how booming its flavor was and how well it stayed true to the original.

To help celebrate the launch of Plant-Based Chorizo and to help get our new year started off right, Chipotle will be offering $0 delivery fees from January 3 to January 9. This should be an additional incentive to try for yourself Chipotle’s newest plant-based innovation that packs nothing but robust Chorizo flavor.

Here’s How To Plan the Perfect ‘Eat-cation’ in Costa Mesa, California

For most foodies like me, travelling consists of an itinerary that’s dictated by what I want to eat at that particular destination. Call it an “eatcation,” if you will. And for this eatcation, my appetite leads me to Costa Mesa, California.

The charming Orange County city is a host to a wide variety of restaurants that cater to all types of cravings and palates. Whatever cuisine you’re in the mood for, Costa Mesa has you covered. Trust, because I have my personal favorites in the city that always satisfy. And since we’re all friends here, I’ll share them with you on my eatcation through Costa Mesa.

First stop on this eatcation is a hearty breakfast at Paragon Café, where they’re serving up creative takes on the most important meal of the day. If I’m yearning for something sweet, I go with the wild Strawberry Flambé French Toast — the combo of sweet and tart jolts my senses in the most delicious way possible. Now if I’m feeling savory, for sure I’m crushing a Chicken Katsu Breakfast Sandwich. Gratuitous yolk pops are always a crowd pleaser, however, this sandwich also has ideal crunch and stimulating spice locked in.

Next, it’s time for a comforting bowl of udon at Marugame Udon. Nothing beats their Curry Nikutama, featuring a rich curry sauce that has a deep flavor that clings to every last of your tastebuds. Pair that up with some perfectly crisp tempura from their wide selection of tempura choices and you’ve got lunchtime tamed.

The last, but certainly not least, is dinner at 2145, where the food is so good that I wish I’d be eating there 24/7. Do try the insanely delicious and unique duck carnitas pizza, where a house made chili oil crowns this savory achievement. The duck carnitas are fork-tender, to the point of unforgettable, so for sure it’ll be on your mind the next time you think about pizza. Besides that perfect pie, a robust bowl of Elote Rigatoni will have you obsessing over your next visit to Costa Mesa.

Foodbeast and Pieology Link Up to Create A Western BBQ Pizza

In the long history of fast food, few burgers have had quite an impact and unique flavor than a Western BBQ Cheeseburger. The tangy hit of barbecue sauce, the scintillating crunch of fried onion rings, and the luscious ooze of melty cheese make for one memorable burger — each and every time you order it.

Foodbeast recognizes the legend that is the Western BBQ Cheeseburger, but since we always take pleasure in amping up our food experiences, we thought, ‘How awesome would it be to have a Western BBQ Cheeseburger in pizza form?’

We must have been thinking out loud because custom pizza innovator, Pieology Pizzeria, seemingly heard us and said, “We got you fam.” The result: The limited-time Foodbeast Western BBQ Pizza. This pie is loaded in true Foodbeast form, boasting a one-of-a-kind bbq sauce and ranch base, melty mozzarella cheese, crispy bacon, juicy meatballs, crunchy French’s fried onions, and topped with a zesty bbq sauce drizzle. Yee-freakin’-haw.

Pull up to your local Pieology and ask for the Foodbeast Western BBQ Pizza starting October 12 and see for yourself just how deliciously crucial fusing a Western BBQ Cheeseburger with a Pieology pizza really is. Available at all locations nationwide for a limited time.

Chipotle Adds a Bold, New Smoked Brisket to the Menu for a Limited Time, Starting This Fall

Chipotle adds a new protein option to their menu, just in time for the changing seasons. The new Smoked Brisket at Chipotle takes a distinct, purposefully different approach to smoked meat, and stays true to the authentic Chipotle taste. The tender brisket is seasoned carefully with Mexican spices, roughly chopped and hand-mixed in a unique sauce, delivering a bold, new flavor profile to the Chipotle dishes you know and love.

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. If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, Chipotle’s new customizable quesadilla is a wonderful way to be introduced to the flavor — complete with perfectly paired sauces.

For Los Angeles’ Best Filipino BBQ, Look No Further Than Tony’s BBQ

“The sauce is the secret,” divulged Tony with a sparkle in his eye, followed by a hearty laugh. You could just tell right off the bat that this man loved to serve his food to people. I don’t blame him. If I made Filipino-style barbecue as good as Tony does, then I’d have my own popular joint like him.

He’s right, though. The sauce really is the hook. The all at once deep, flavorful, and sweet glaze is a major feature on most of its grilled items like pork and chicken skewers and grilled liempo (pork belly). And though pretty much every item at Tony’s West Covina restaurant is worth a try, you really must start at his grilled tuna collar.

Foodbeast Costa Spyrou describes its uniqueness with accurate eloquence, as Filipino chef Ralph Degala took him for a visit to Tony’s Barbecue and Bibingkinitan, to put him on to this delicious wonder. And while you’re watching the latest Foodbeast adventure above, take note to make room for all the other goods that Costa and Ralph ordered, trust.
