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.
Southwestern options like Rubio’s fish tacos and Randy Jones’ BBQ may be the PETCO Park food base, but you'll also find veggie dogs, veggie burgers, vegetarian burritos, veggie sushi, edamame and fresh fruit salad to eat at the game. Not to mention hot dogs, bratwursts, and veggie-topped Diego Dogs.
An 8-piece California roll costs $12.50. A Spicy Tuna roll, also 8 pieces, is $12.75.
PETCO Park’s new loaded ticketoffers fans the best of everything – with ticket options ranging from all-you-can-eat concessions included – to tickets with a stored value of $20 for purchasing concessions and merchandise.
who eats sushi at a ballgame, a number of people asked? well, this girl, for one. and she's not alone. the super friendly sushi guys at Yankee Stadium told me they sell about 100 rolls/game. California is their most popular roll, so we're clearly talking about the world's least worldly palates. but so what? branching out is fantastic. All rolls - CA, Spicy Tuna, Tuna-Avocado, Salmon-Avocado - are $9.75. Edamame and Seaweed Salad (green) are $6. Sushi platters have 9 pieces and cost $14. Sashimi platters cost the same but have 9 pieces. So...have You had sushi at the game?
