Aloha Kitchen’s Tokyo honey toast. Forget funnel cakes and get ready for the new craveable festival bite. Vanilla ice cream, honey, whipped cream and berries bury buttery, warm, chewy mocha bread. Something tells us people will be hitting Aloha Kitchen’s booth again and again.
Bronze Café’s Tree of Life. Downtown’s favorite pita will be a great fit with a crowd looking for more interesting (and healthier) festival food. The conveniently wrapped combo of crisp greens, tomato, avocado, roasted peppers, cashew cream and lemon vinaigrette will wake up your taste buds and keep you fueled for the next set.
José’s Solar Tacos. Superchef José Andrés will man the Sunny Day solar kitchen across from the Huntridge Stage, serving up all kinds of taco fabulosity created with clean, efficient cook stoves powered by that big shiny thing in the sky. Going green never tasted so good.
Lao Sze Chuan’s Crispy Lemon Shrimp. The new restaurant at the Palms has reimagined the classic American-Chinese dish honey walnut shrimp into this bright, tangy, crispy, creamy creation, sure to be one of the most addictive bites at any booth this year.
Truck U BBQ’s Pulled Pork Sandwich. Mike Minor’s Mexi-Cue approach has yielded the best pulled pork sandwich we’ve ever tasted, sweet smoky meat piled on brioche with ancho-honey barbecue sauce, coleslaw and duck fat fried potatoes. Drooling yet?
