Fear not flavour fanatics – no longer must you aimlessly wander the streets of London in search for your latest foodie fix, as The Meat Lust Bare Bones Bus has arrived courtesy of street food-inspired flavour-junkies, Meat Lust and top chef, Ben Spalding.

A tricked-out BBQ joint on wheels, The Bare Bones Bus will serve up mouth-watering, Meat Lust-infused taster plates from Ben Spalding and exclusive off-menu dishes from London’s most lauded restaurants and street food vendors – including blasphemous Holy F**k Rib Meat Rolls from Mark Gevaux (A.K.A Rib Man), a Trio of Chicken from Haggerston fryer-fiends Clutch, miniature twists on Bleecker’s award-winning Bleecker Black, tender meat from Foxlow and a variety of meaty balls from The Bowler Meatballs.

The double deck, half-open top bus has been completely stripped of its mundane interior and transformed into a haven for any meat lover, featuring dining booths, a large Primo XL400 Grill manned by former Aqua Shard and Jon Salt Exec Chef, Ben Spalding and a downstairs craft beer bar from Gipsy Hill Brewing who will be on hand to pair up all the dishes with one of their conversation starting brews.

Meat-loving Londoners can hop aboard the Bare Bones Bus by booking one of eight tours on the 4rd, 5th, 11th and 12th February. The £30 ‘taster-ticket’ will provide each guest with x4 taster plates smoked on-board by Ben Spalding, off-menu dishes at each stop (RibMan, Clutch, Bleecker, The Bowler Meatballs and Foxlow), x4 Gipsy Hill Brewing Beers and live Q&As with the folk behind the flavour.

Spreading the Meat Lust, Ben and the Bare Bones team will also be smoking-up some tasty meats for eagle-eyed passers-by. Flavour-fans that use the hashtag #MLBBT or flag down the bus will also be offered a lip-smacking reward straight from the Primo Grill.

Scott Dixon, Director of The Flava People and third generation flavour fanatic, commented: “Meat Lust is all about diverse, memorable and hard-hitting flavours, so when we first discussed the Bare Bones Tour it was important for us to work with the very best – uncompromising talent from the thriving London food scene who share our passion for bold and unforgettable dishes. We couldn’t be happier with the London line-up and we’re already excited by the thought of hitting the road and discovering incredible dishes in cities across the UK.”

Launched in April 2016, Meat Lust’s street food-inspired sauces: BBQ Mop, Chinese BBQ, Buffalo and Green Sweet Chilli are currently available in around 1,500 stores across the UK including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, ASDA and Morrison’s as well as all good butchers and independent retailers. All flavours are available at Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Co-Op, ASDA stores, and all good butchers.
