Red Bell Pepper, Carrot, Red Onion, Baby Bok Choy...Chicken is optional, so is the Sriracha. Thanks to DelawareNorthSportservice Chefs for answering my many questions and posing with your food. And, I should add, this Chef was eating these noodles when I approached- they're that good.
Thankfully I got into a conversation with SNY's Ted Berg before walking out of Citi Field Fantasy Food Day II. Otherwise I might have missed the *new* Fried Chicken that's part of the Cafe Hanover / World's Fare Market (Field Level, right field corner).
They call it KoNo Chicken and they'll be selling 3 pieces for $7.50 and 5 pieces for $10.50. Any pieces you want (wings, legs) and Hot Sauce or Soy Sauce flavoring. They'll have bulgogi beef and bibimbap too. Like.
They are the creation of Shannon Yates. He was the chef at Cru in Fort Myers closed December 2008 (Yates was already gone to focus on his catering and retail operation).
The night I tried them I stood on line with a woman who purchased two orders. She said, "After three times of trying to get a cheeseburger, I'm skipping everything else and getting the spring rolls. they're the best thing in the ballpark."
What happened with the cheeseburger, I asked?
First, the cheese was cold. Second, she got mustard instead of mayo. Third, there was no cheese. She likes hot dogs too, but loves the spring rolls.
The vendor dropped the rolls into a mini deep fryer, waited a few minutes, removed them, sliced them, dropped them in a styrofoam cup, slathered them with a 'spicy' creamy sauce, sprinkled chopped green onions on top, and voilà: the volcano roll.
"Hey, Charles, how do you like the shrimp?" "It's moving, and it's got eyes on it." "That's the best part."
Dwyane Wade and Charles Barkley deciding between pocket and napkin (for disposal of uneaten food) is fantastic. I love this commercial, and the All-Star game is so fun to watch. Maybe I have to try to get to Dallas next year. How can I make that happen?
These first photos (left and right) are the menus at the big left field food concessions area.
Hopefully this doesn't take too long to load. I made the pictures smallish. Third picture (left) is from the same concessions area - it's the Goya stand, the only place in the ballpark where you can get juice (not including kids meals, also sold in this area).
There's Chinese food there too. I never get food from that stand - haven't yet craved fried rice at a game - but other people do.
I can't find my picture of the grill down there. You'll have to come back for that. Beers of the world is there too. And Carvel...
