One of the biggest tournaments in sports is now live, meaning it’s time to gather up the crew and watch the games. The Foodbeast squad just did that for one of the first matches, and we added an epic food twist into the mix.
Foodbeasts Elie Ayrouth and Marc Kharrat got everything they needed for the watch party at Northgate Market, an emporium of Mexican foods and essentials. Since most of the contests air during the morning in our area, breakfast was the name of the game for the festivities.
The party was elevated to Foodbeast status with this MASSIVE 30-pound breakfast burrito. The above picture shows what went inside, but doesn’t do the full size complete justice.
Yea, it was massive.
There was also a custom fondue using a plethora of different cheeses and a literal sheet of chicharrón.
To drink, there were jugs of watermelon and cucumber lime agua fresca infused with tequila and vodka.
Finally, for dessert, there was a cake and plenty of cupcakes themed around association football to celebrate the big tournament.
Elie and Marc made the most of every part of Northgate to make each of the items happen. Nearly the entire breakfast hot food bar, including huevos con nopales and chile rellenos, went into the burrito, alongside an entire log of chorizo sausage and piles of marinated Mexican meats.
The fondue contained almost every cheese Northgate had to offer, and Elie and Marc went and bought entire jugs of agua fresca to mix some alcohol into for the watch party.
They even managed to snag a ton of jerseys, balls, and flags to ensure that the decor and attire were as on point as the food.
Bringing everything together made for an epic watch party that was as much about the food as it was the beautiful game. I know that in the weeks to come, we’re all gonna be talking as much about the tournament as we are that behemoth of a breakfast burrito.
