    Before you go on, I must warn you: this post contains A LOT of food porn. Not that it's ever a bad thing, just you might want to have a slice of toast before reading this one because I promise it'll make you hungry.

    Here's just a little taster of what you're in for...

    See, I did warn you! Just don't blame me - blame Ben at Ben's Canteen because he's created two incredible new specials which I'm SO excited to share with you!

    I can't believe it's almost been a year since I first told you about this place. Do you remember they did that incredible burger & wine pairing menu ? Well, they're continuing to deliver on the alcohol and food front with this latest offering, starting up with the incredible Summer Frose. 
    It's a gorgeous frozen blend of  Rose wine, strawberry purée, lemon juice, sugar syrup, cranberry juice and sweet vermouth. So summery and SO refreshing!

    Make sure you order a round of those before tucking into your starters. Ben's Canteen is all about the laid-back vibes so you'll love getting hands on with the DIY Guacamole.
    It comes with all the essentials (avocado, jalapenos, salt and tomatoes) so you can make it exactly as you like!
    But if playing with your food isn't your thing - you can go for the ready assembled pulled pork nachos
    They're piled up with layers of cheese, tomatoes, guacamole and smokey pulled pork. The ultimate hangover food and so incredibly more-ish you'll need to reign yourself in for the next course. 
    And this you really don't want to miss - introducing the Ben’s Canteen x BrewDog Burger. A double beef patty tower stacked with twice-smoked cheese, streaky bacon and barbecue sauce spiked with BrewDog’s s Punk IPA - PLUS crack fries (which are eseential chips fried in BrewDog’s Kingpin batter) to give it that extra height and crunch.
    Honestly, just take another look at that beauty...
    It's the ultimate blend of juicy beef, salty bacon and you'll need a shed-load of napkins but it's SO worth it. You can only get hold of her for a limited amount of time (she's a special remember) so I highly recommend hot-footing to Ben's Canteen or one of Brewdog's pubs before the end of August! It'll be the best £12 you spend this month!

    I did promise you two specials though so brace yourself for Ben's next offering: The Juicy Lucy. 
    This majestic creation is Ben's National Burger Day entry and she's a beaut. They've taken a fragrant goat Patty (made using cabrito goat meat no less) and stuffed it with creamy Goats Cheese then topped it all of with curried Onion Marmalade, Lime, Coriander & Mint Yoghurt and Pickled Scotch Bonnet.
    It's got a real Caribbean vibe to it with one hell of kick and it's super tasty too! This one is available from now untill Mid September so you don't want to hang about on this one either! 

    Don't worry though, not everything is limited edition! I haven't even started to tell you about the Loaded Fries yet - and these beauties are a meal in themselves!

    The Buffalo Fried Chicken Fries are my favourite thing EVER. Loaded with chunks of crispy fried chicken and tossed in Ben's homemade Buffalo Sauce with lashings of Ranch dressing and chunks of Blue Cheese. The dreamiest combination.
    The Korean Chicharrones Fries are topped with deep fried Pork Belly, heaps of Kimchi, crispy seaweed, and lashing of garlic mayo and Korean Hot Sauce. It's the perfect blend of salty, spicy, umami flavours and totally different to any fries I've tried before!
    And finally, the Cheesy Chips are topped 4 different types of cheeses AND Nacho Cheese Sauce, plus a dusting of Paprika and a handful of Jalapeño.
    Feeling hungry yet? There's two Ben's Canteen in Battersea and Earlsfield - I promise you, it's well worth the trip south of the river!
