Mess Hall Canteen — SPAM Bomb

Brace yourselves, Mess Hall Canteen is about to set off the SPAM BOMB: a crispy, and cheesy take on Spam musubi. Imagine melty mozzarella and pepper jack cheese, with sliced HICKORY SMOKE SPAM wrapped in a tempura battered nori, and deep fried until golden brown.

Slater’s 50/50 x @The Vulgar Chef

@TheVulgarChef and Slater’s 50/50 Burgers are teaming up to create The TOTCHO Burger exclusively for MEAT STREET. This carne asada burger is ready to wreck ALL appetites at MEAT STREET.

Ninjas With Appetite — SPAM Fries

It’s a new take on Spam Katsu. These “SPAM fries” are thick-cut pieces of Spam, battered and deep-fried in panko flakes, then topped with a healthy heap of teriyaki aioli drizzle. This is what it would look like if your beloved chicken katsu were replaced by Spam.

The Milky Way —  Ice Cream Taco with a Bacon Shell

This colorful and crunchy treat is a handmade waffle shell made with bacon inside. Layered with vanilla maple ice cream, topped with chocolate sauce, bacon bits, then Covered in Fruity Pebbles Cereal. Save room for these bad boys. 

Marketplace: Buy-As-You-Go

Burger Monster — The Godzilla Burger

Get Ready for The Godzilla Burger, an all-angus beef patty DRENCHED in gojuchang BBQ sauce, with a slice of fried Korean BBQ marinated SPAM added for good measure. Topped with marinated cucumbers, and pepper jack cheese and Burger Monster’s Bacon Jam. 

Dos Chinos — Calamari Carne Asada Fries

The calamari is beer-battered and fried to a golden brown before being topped with cheese, avocado crema, Angus carne asada, and a Southeast Asian salsa that brings some fresh flair to the affair. Together, it creates a version of Carne Asada fries that is totally suited for Meat Street.

 

Hobo Co. Pizza — Shawarma Pizza

Hobo Co.’s pizza is an exotic mashup of shawarma and pizza. It’s got some righteous pizza dough coated in both tomato and tahini sauce, shawarma beef, and fresh mozzarella cheese. After being baked to a golden brown, the Shawarma pizza gets topped with fresh chopped parsley and pickled turnips, giving you a mix of rich, beefy, cheesy, and pickled flavors for a well-balanced pizza.

Mad Dumplings — SPAM Scallion Pancake

The sandwich gets its name from the eight slices of pan-fried Spam that get loaded into it and the GIANT handmade scallion pancake that serves as the base. It’s also drizzled with an aioli sauce and topped with a kaleidoscopic assortment of veggies: pickled radishes, carrots, red cabbage, and a healthy amount of cilantro, give you a symphony of flavors that can only be had at Meat Street.

Mess Hall Canteen — Giant Beef Shank

To create this two-fisted bovine bonanza, Mess Hall sous vide the shank for 18 hours, battered it, deep-fried it, and drowned this hefty masterpiece in barbecue sauce and a scintillating drizzle of chipotle sauce.

Hobo Co. Pizza — SPAM Musubi Calzone

Using white rice, fried Spam pieces, nori, pineapple, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and Sriracha drizzle, this bad boy will either make you feel like you’re grubbing in Hawaii for one bite, then Italy for the next bite.

Meat Up BBQ — Texas Chop Sandwich

Meat Up is upping the ante in their sandwich by cramming brisket PLUS three more meats into their version: crispy pieces of bacon, smoked beef bratwurst sausages, and shreds of juicy pulled pork.

The Viking Truck — 3 Headed Devil Dog

The Three-Headed devil dog is The Viking Truck’s spin on a classic corn dog.  It’s made with Chicken apple, bratwurst and polish sausage. Stuffed with cheese and bacon bits and dipped in Lingonberry sauce. DAMN! 

So, if you don’t want that day after MEAT STREET FOMO, be sure to grab your tickets!

This list will be updated as we hear about more vendors and dishes leading up the event.
