Apparently, due to my first article on The Social Feed's delicious dinner at Nelson the Seagull, Dine Out approached them to do a special pop up dinner at Save on Meats butcher next door to its diner.

The idea of the night was food served in a social fashion as the food was prepared. We dined on the special pop-up "Noise-to-Tail" menu.

I hoofed it solo to Hastings on the end of Gastown to the new Save On Meats for a special pop-up dinner served in the butcher shop after hours, sipping on one of my favourite beers, Phillips Brewing Blue Buck Ale.

My stranger dining mates and I munched on some fresh brioche bread loaf and head cheese with pickled winter veggies to break the ice.

For appetizers, we gobbled up some tasty pork shoulder sausage with boozy prunes and buttermilk whipped mashed potatoes.

Keeping with the different cuts of meat and part of the pig, we were served roasted pork belly, apple compote, sunchoke and spot prawn salade with bisque sauce.

The main attraction was some ridiculously large portioned cuts of pork roast that was really thick and meaty. After our fill of white meat, I ate some salty sweet and decadent pieces of bacon chocolate.

The honey panna cotta dessert was very tasty and delicious. Its candied pork crackling accompaniment was really harsh and well, crackly. It was a meaty, epic five-course dinner at everyone's favourite neighbourhood butcher shop. The social communal dining experience was again one of a kind.
