Last Sunday’s Meat Street Meat Festival was a resounding event. The Festival, which took place in Santa Ana’s Main Place Mall, brought thousands of foodies together to eat meat, meat and more meat. Items such as Bruxie’s Angry Mac and Cheese topped with a fried chicken drumstick and applewood bacon, the Mad Dumpling’s Loganisa Sausage Dumpling topped with Grilled Marinated Pork Belly and Fresh Jalapeno; and the DogHaus’ delicious Italian Stallion Sausage Sandwich tempted guests to try many excellent food treats.
The Dog Haus’ Chef and sausage expert as well as Food Network TV personality, Chef Adam Gertler, was there to greet the crowds. Over at the Mess Hall Canteen Truck, Chef Jake McPeck filled hungry gues’ts stomachs with the food that won him the Food Network’s Food Truck Face-Off. On stage, chefs were working on the world’s largest SPAM Musabi, the popular Hawaiian delicacy. Overall, the event, put on by Hormel Foods and Foodbeast, the popular Orange County food publication was a major success. Foodbeast’s many shows such as Oozefest have become popular fixtures of the local food scene. A portion of every ticket sale went to support Inspire Artistic Minds. This is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that provides scholarships to people in the hospitality industry, to attend events or experiences that will inspire them.
