This Carne Asada and Tater Tots Burger Is Ready to Wreck All Appetites At MEAT STREET

It’s safe to say I didn’t know what to expect when I heard The Vulgar Chef and Slater’s 50/50 Burgers decided to collab on a exclusive item for FOODBEAST’s upcoming meat festival, Meat Street Presented by the Makers of SPAM Brand at Main Place Mall.

But, when I saw what these two masters of burger architecture built — it was more amazing than I could have imagined.

Enter The Totcho Burger.  Think part nachos, part carne asada fries, part bacon burger. Every aspect of this Vulgar Chef x Slater’s 50/50 collab is a detailed and focused on the all-meat theme of MEAT STREET — even the roll has bacon in it.

Slater’s signature 50/50 patty with pepper jack cheese, carne asada marinated bacon, loaded with TATER TOTS, then topped with nacho cheese, real chorizo crumbles, and sliced jalapeños. And all’s served up on a bacon-infused telera roll with guacamole and a cilantro lime dressing.

Damn.

It wasn’t too long ago we reported on the The Vulgar Chef calling out big names like Burger King for stealing his recipes, so hopefully the corporate trolls will just sit back and enjoy the show.

I know I will — as long as I can grab a Totcho Burger.

MEAT STREET is on Saturday April 22. For more information or to purchase tickets please visit www.eatmeatstreet.com.

Brace Yourself For Mess Hall Canteen’s ‘SPAM Bomb’

FOODBEAST’s upcoming meat festival, Meat Street Presented by the Makers of SPAM Brand at Main Place Mall, is about to turn the wildest dreams of SPAM lovers and meat aficionados into a never-before-seen experience that will showcase unique, MEAT STREET exclusive recipes you won’t find at your local county fair. (Get your tickets here!)

One of the vendors at the festival is Mess Hall Canteen, who has become a model innovator in the mobile food industry, creating share-worthy gourmet dishes that push the limitations of what can be accomplished in a food truck. And they’re bringing plenty of that artillery to MEAT STREET.

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.

Get your cameras ready, because the SPAM BOMB is about to blow up on social media.

Earlier this month, the world was introduced to Mess Hall’s other MEAT STREET item — The Beef Shank, a deep-fried sous vide beef shank, smothered in chipotle barbecue sauce. But, you know that’s wasn’t all the ammo they were packing.

As MEAT STREET gets closer, stay tuned in and you’ll get a chance to preview all the juicy exclusive items that will be available for those in attendance at MainPlace Mall in Santa Ana, Calif., April 22.

Earlier, the world got its first look at Doner Saltado, a MEAT STREET specific recipe created by So Cal-based Doner G Turkish & Mediterranean Grill.

FOODBEAST’s first-ever meat festival, Meat Street Presented by the Makers of Spam Brand at Main Place Mall, is right around the corner and because we’re super hyped about what’s on the menu. Let’s take a moment to admire what VIP vendor Doner G is bringing to the show.

Orange County-based Doner G Turkish & Mediterranean Grill is a local favorite, having specialized in Doner Kebab dishes and authentic Turkish cuisine for more than two decades. With two locations in Irvine and Anaheim, Doner G is ready to wow the hometown crowd with its Doner Saltado topped with special aji sauce.

This Doner Saltado starts with a sautéed onions, tomato and red peppers, mixed with French Fries and Doner Kebab. Served on a bed of white rice, it is then topped off with a fried egg and Doner G’s special aji sauce. You might want to grab a fork — and a napkin. And maybe a friend.

If you consider yourself a meat lover, then you’re probably already dreaming about the juicy varieties of meats that will be on the menu. With an All-You-Can-Consume food and beer VIP section and a Pay-As-You-Eat Marketplace section, MEAT STREET is about to bring the carnivore out in all of us.

Satisfy Your Inner Carnivore With This MASSIVE Beef Shank

You may know Mess Hall Canteen as the food truck that gave the world those glorious Panhard Soft Shell Crab Mac and Cheese Tater Tots. Now, their menu just got a lot more beefier.

The Meat Street Beef Shank is set to debut at Foodbeast’s upcoming meat festival Meat Street Presented by the Makers of SPAM Brand at Main Place Mall. Trust, it’s definitely something to keep an eye out for.

Imagine walking around a meat festival with a giant cow leg in hand, cooked to perfection. We’re calling it now, this might be one of the most Instagram-worthy items at the event. Just prepare to have your phones coated in BBQ sauce.

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.

Though Mess Hall says you can easily share this with more than one person, there’s just something so satisfying about conquering a mountain of meat all by yourself. Think of the sauce stains on your shirt as badges of honor.

You can find the massive Beef Shank, along with tons of other dishes that will make a meat lover blush at Meat Street on Saturday, April 22.

If you’re looking for a medium to channel your inner carnivore, you can purchase your tickets to the event here. Early bird tickets for Marketplace is $5 (buy as you eat) and VIP is $50 (all-you-can-consume). After April 10, prices go up to $10 and $60, respectively.
