Pork of July is back at Zea

Special menu items benefit pediatric cancer outreach services

New Orleans, LA (June 26, 2017) – Most festival-goers in the Big Easy are well aware of Hogs for a Cause, New Orleans’ premier BBQ competition serving as the major fundraiser for pediatric brain cancer outreach services in the U.S. But for fans of Zea Rotisserie & Bar, opportunities to amplify the cause go beyond the weekend-long event – for the third consecutive year, all Zea locations are offering special menu items that benefit the organization throughout July.


Last year, Zea raised nearly $10,000 alongside other Taste Buds Management restaurants. Zea guests have two options to support Hogs for the Cause– more specifically, the “Piggy Stardust Team.” During their visit, diners can drop any amount of cash into a special piggy bank and, while they’re at it, fill out a registration slip for a chance to win a $250 gift card  They may also order one of the limited-time, highly coveted dishes described below, all available at any Zea from July 1 – July 31:

  • Korean BBQ Pork Tacos: Spicy Korean BBQ pork, flour tortillas, lettuce leaves and homemade kimchi slaw; served family style, four per order
  • Pork Quesadilla: Smoked pulled pork, sharp cheddar cheese, and house-made chipotle mayo, layered between two flour tortillas and served with house-made guacamole
  • Country Fried Pork Ribs: Zea’s signature St. Louis style ribs, slow roasted, breaded & fried, tangy BBQ sauce for dipping (three per order)
  • BBQ Potato Chips, Thick house-cut sea salted potato chips, drizzled with a white queso, topped with a pecan smoked, pulled pork and a charred jalapeño honey BBQ sauce and pickled red onion
