While many are here in near Sahara desert temperatures to hear outstanding musical talent and check out innovative art pieces the food scene should not be overlooked.
Head to food truck alley and the vendor’s marketplace and try something new. Food trucks are popular for a reason; they offer creative and delicious bites. It’s not just the weather that’s heating up. Look past the norm and make your WayHome experience the perfect trifecta; music, art and food.
Best Tacos (cause Tacos)
You can’t walk past a row of food vendors and not expect tacos. As you can’t expect to not try them. Rancho Relaxo has got you covered with fish, pork, chicken, yam and cauliflower
Best Messy Hands Meal
You already have dirt in your you-know-what so why not get slathered in sticky icky hoisin BBQ sauce with this crazy Vietnamese fried chicken sandwich from Heirloom as well.
Best Not-Your-Mother’s Mac n Cheese
Everything is better in balls. Go to Food Dudes for Mac n Cheese balls. Also their fish tacos are pretty good too!
Best Fries Covered In Anything
Poutine is also another one of those must have dishes. Get a bit of a kick from Curbalicious and their butter chicken poutine.
Best Alternative to a Burger/Taco/Sandwich
Chimney Stax offers probably the most refreshing sandwich in the whole park. The Caprese is a light and fluffy stack stuffed with lettuce, tomato and cheese with balsamic glaze.
Best “We are on a Budget and Need to Share with my Crew” dish.
This massive pile of matchstick french fries from Fit to Grill goes a long way especially since they are so addictive. Pair it with their pork belly sandwich and next year your crew will be treating you.
Best Thing on a Stick
Yeah there are corndogs on a stick but in this heat why not have a nice cold pickle from The Saucy Pierogi.
Best “It’s Too Bloody Hot to Eat” Alternative
Rose and Sons seem to have the monopoly on intelligent food choices during this extraordinary hot weekend. Giant watermelon,fork. Brilliant!
Best “I Paid Extra For VIP” dish
For those who dug into their pockets a bit deeper to pay for the VIP experience have a choice of three separate Drake Hotel Pop ups. The Chilled Asian Shrimp Noodle Salad is delicious.
