It is that time of year! The L.A. County Fair is in town from August 30th- September 29th.
My family and I attended the media preview and we ate until we could not eat any more. We literally spent hours tasting everything. I was okay with it because that is the reason I go to the fair.
We tried everything!!!
Our first stop was Chicken Charlie. I had the chicken kabob and later made my way back for a fried Twinkie after I saw my daughter eating one.
I guess at the fair anything goes. While eating her fried Twinkie my daughter was in the Tasti Chips line ordering their gluten free chips. It was like she had struck gold, because she is a vegetarian and thought she would not find anything to eat. I was a little worried about her, because she also made a stop by Fresh Fries. They have freshly baked fries with a variety of dips and sauces for a tasty vegetarian treat. How many potatoes was she going to eat?
My son on the other hand had his eyes set on other things. He feel in love with Cornucopia Café. He ordered a pretzel, smoothies, a churro and cinnamon rolls. He felt grown up because we were sitting directly in front of their booth and was allowed to walk up and order.
We all liked 10-pound Buns. I could over hear the kids debating about ordering Nutella on a Sourdough bun. Mind you one was eating a pepperoni one and the other was eating a veggie. Had they lost their minds. I walked over and placed my order for a bbq chicken on sourdough. Let me warn you, the line was long, but worth the wait.
I do not drink, but I stopped by Skinnygirl Bar and Food. They did not have any food, but offered me an apple cider after I told them I do not drink. I asked them several times what was in it and they kept telling me apple cider. I could taste liquor. Then finally the young lady tells me it contained 5% alcohol. I guess that is what I get for ordering a drink at a bar.
I was excited to see Harold & Belle’s to Geaux. I grew up eating Harold & Belle’s. I was just there last month for lunch with my Godfather. If you are looking for the rich, fragrant flavors of New Orleans cuisine Harold & Belle’s is the place.
I know many of you attended the fair over the weekend, but for those of you who have not, you are missing out on some great food so hurry to the L.A. County Fair.
