If you haven’t already noticed, I love my food and a good cocktail- so when I was offered sweet JD honey marinated meat and free Jack Daniels beverages, I wasn’t going to turn it down! So along I went to the premiere of the first episode of the new Munchies and Jack Daniels collaborative BBQ Road Trip series.
If you haven’t heard of Munchies, it’s Vice‘s food channel. The series is a culinary journey around the globe in search of ‘the most magical fire infused meat around’. To be honest, I didn’t have the best view of the screen since I was right over the other side of the PACKED bar, but what I did see I enjoyed. I’ll definitely watch the episode properly when it airs on 16th October. Here’s the trailer;
The event was held at MEATmission in Hoxton – the only London restaurant in the MEATliquor chain (one of my favourites!) I hadn’t yet visited. We were served plentiful, delicious Jack Daniels cocktails. My favourite was the Dust Up (JD Honey and dry sherry blended with fresh lemon juice, homemade raspberry syrup and egg white).
As expected, the food was excellent. You can look at the menu for yourselves, but on offer were MEATmission favourites like a smaller version of the cult Dead Hippie burger (mustard fried beef patty, Dead Hippie sauce, cheese, pickles, lettuce, mustard and ketchup) and fried pickles (I LOVE fried pickles but hate regular ones – go figure!) as well as special creations with a JD Honey twist like the honey mustard chicken wings and the Jack Palace burger (beef patty, cheese, grilled JD butter onions, pickles mustard and ketchup) pictured.
Pro tip: Make friends with the waiting staff! The waitresses at MEATmission were not only super friendly, but they were really knowledgeable!
This is Becky pictured – she talked me through all the drinks she served me and I was really impressed. With service like this I’ll definitely be going back to MEATmission.
