The Los Angeles County Fair is coming to Pomona this Friday September 4, 2015! Our neighbors at the Fairplex are preparing for a whirlwind month of fair fun. There’s always plenty of attractions at the fair, but there’s always plenty to eat, too. If you find yourself at the LA County Fair this month, be sure to check out some of these extravagant eats.
There will be no shortage of deep-fried foods this year. You’ll find the standard deep-fried Twinkies and deep-fried Oreos, but there are some new options also. You can try a Funnel Cake Hot Dog or a Deep-fried Peanut Butter Pickle. The names are self-explanatory, but you’ll have to try them to fully enjoy their uniqueness.
Ribs, chicken, smoked sausage, turkey legs – There’s no doubt you will be able to get your BBQ fix at the fair. If you’re feeling brave (and hungry) you may want to try the Pig Trough. BBQ pork rinds are topped with pulled pork, ranch beans, and coleslaw. Or you may want to opt for the Cowboy Fries – French fries topped with BBQ Tri-Tip and shredded cheese.
Food vendors at the fair are adventurous, to say the least. When it comes to burgers, you’ll find some interesting sweet and savory combinations. The Funnel Cake burger sandwiches the typical cheeseburger between two pieces of funnel cake, while the Spicy PB&J burger features chunky peanut butter spread, strawberry preserves, Sriracha bacon spread with a half-pound Angus Beef patty on a brioche bun.
Aside from the usual fair food, find a great selection of ethnic cuisine, including Pad Thai, kabobs, tacos, and more. The Mexican curly fries are a sight for sore eyes. Curly fries, beans, jalapenos and cheese are served together in the form of a giant ball. This one is definitely shareable.
For more health conscious eats, you can head to the Farm, where they are growing fresh, produce and vegetables. The Farm Kitchen serves wood-grilled flatbread made to order and topped with their fresh, organic produce. In addition, the Harvest Table will host Farm To Table dining through the year.
