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.

Anaheim, CA-based Slater’s 50/50 Reveals New Bacon-Filled Quesadilla Dish

With bacon a common theme in many of Slater’s 50/50 dishes, their new Papas Quesadilla dish is no exception. Revealed via their social media outlet at the start of this weekend, like a majority of their new dishes are, this Quesadilla is highlighted by mash potatoes, pepper jack cheese and thick bacon cuts pouring out of every possible tortilla seam.

Slater’s 50/50: The Flamin’ Hot Burger

Slater’s just keeps bringing the heat, no pun intended. Fellow Foodbeast crew member Giovanni sent me this after his first trip to Slater’s 50/50. This is the Flamin’ Hot burger which is made up of their signature fire beef burger, onion strings, fire roasted green chili’s, pepper jack cheese and chipotle mayo. I’d say that Slater’s is on fire, if you have yet to try this spot you’re missing out.


El Pollo Loco’s New Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

El Pollo Loco’s New Grilled Chicken Sandwiches look beastly! They come in two different versions, one with guacamole and the other with jalapeños, Pepper Jack cheese and spicy Southwest sauce! Ether one you choose, they both start off with a citrus-marinated chicken breast, an authentic grilled telera roll (Mexican style soft bread used for traditional torta sandwiches) and topped with shredded lettuce and fresh Pico de Gallo sauce! They are both around 550 calories and go for about five bucks each!


Arby's: Fajita Flatbread Melts

Available for a limited time at participating Arby’s locations, are their new Fajita Flatbread Melts! Arby’s brings to the table a new bold southwestern flavor, with oven roasted beef or chicken, then a mound of melted pepper jack cheese, grilled peppers and onions, fajita seasoning, and red jalapeno sauce all in a flatbread wrap. Sounds delicious! (Thx GrubGrade)
