When you are a food blogger who doesn’t eat pork and loves her Meatless Mondays, you end up turning down a lot of invitations. Sorry Bacon Fest! So when I received the invitation to preview and attend Meat Street, I was ready to pass… until I saw Foodbeast was putting it on, and I KNEW I would have to make it work for the food fam! And as you can see below in the pics and the recap video, I’m SO glad I went and tried as much as I could! Yay for stretchy pants!
At the preview, I got to try a lot of the dishes like the RIDICULOUSLY good BBQ Burnt Ends & Bacon Sundae from Lucille’s BBQ above and the crazy Totcho Burger from Slater’s 50/50 below since they were lovely enough to take out the bacon out for me. They were still SO good, and I’m sure the pork-lovers loved the OG versions!
As for the event itself, take a look at the recap video below. I attempted to capture everything with ALL the food (tacos and burgers and ribs, oh my!) and all the fun, including dancing bacon, a giant SPAM Musubi, the cutest lil’ piggy mascot, and even yours truly on a throne made of SPAM!
As you can imagine, I was TOTALLY stuffed by the end of the event! I can’t wait until next year, but in the meantime I’ll have to reminisce about some of my fave dishes like the Bruxie Waffles’ Spiced Fried Chicken Drumstick with Angry Mac N’ Cheese. Sooooo droolworthy!
P.S. – I have a giveaway right now on BOTH my Instagram & Facebook pages. Enter ASAP to win one of TEN massive meaty burritos from Miguel’s Jr.!
