This place is a junk food connoisseur’s heaven. When Guy talks about going to flavor town, he was NOT kidding! I love you Guy because you and me are on the same wavelength about junk food. I know what everyone’s thinking. It’s just glorified bar food, but hey, while most people think you can’t really screw up bar food, you can definitely up the ante on it and make it even more gluttonous.

Bacon Mac-N-Cheese Burger 2 Bacon Mac-N-Cheese Burger - Close Up Mexican Churros

Bacon Mac-N-Cheese Burger – This was my favorite of the night. With so many ingredients in one burger, I thought it would be difficult to eat and the ratios and textures right and would be all wrong for me (too much meat, bun too soggy from sauces, etc.) However, this is BOMB. Flavor town to the max and the textures were all there in a very chomp-able burger that held it together. I hate it when the burger is constructed poorly, and bits and pieces start sliding out.

Mexican Churros – This was standard. Sweet, warm, tasty. I did find the dips too sweet for my liking, but my two eating partners had no complaints.

Conclusion: Guy Fieri, you did not disappoint me. Your food was everything I imagined it would be. It may not be “gourmet,” but it’s dang tasty.

Tip: Bring eating buddies to share and conquer multiple items!

Just when you thought you’ve had it all and what could possibly be THAT different with yet another ice cream. Welp, Gelato Messina sure showed me!

The run down: This company awesomely Australian and they couldn’t be more nice and down to earth. Declan one of the owners personally presented to us fellow food bloggers and writers (shout out to Amber and her guy Bronson at cheerupwithfood.com!). His marketing team was also awesome. Ok, ok, back to the food. Because food has gotten so commercialized, it’s really nice to see the company brings back the passion and the love for quality food, and you could really tell that love is put into everything. Ingredients are all made in house (except for two type of biscuits). They’ve got an army of staff back there. Flavors and textures are incredible! Tiramisu has all the textures of creamy, cakey lady fingers, and hint of alcoholiness (yes, I made up “alcoholiness”). How are the fruit sorbets so creamy? The salty sweet combination of salted coconut and mango blew my mind. Pistachio gelato? I can taste real pistachios! It is true that it is “So Wrong Its Right” with cream cheese, caramel gelato smashed with white chocolate potato chips and smothered in duck fat caramel. So many delicious flavors, but if I had to choose one, the winner of the day is salted caramel with white chocolate. I guess my tastes are changing – salty sweet is gaining favor in my world.

Gelato Messina is not only offering an amazingly unique spread of gelato flavors, but also on top of that, they offer beautifully constructed gelato cakes and coffee.
