Food at Giants game

Hello -- I am going to the GIants game tonight, and wondered what the best non-sausage options at the ballpark are. (Sausages sometime set my stomach a-rumblin'.) Gracias!

  1. The Cha-Cha bowl from the Orlando's stand behind the bleachers, and the carne asada tacos from the little stand next to the Cantina behind section 104. Also, the garlic fries from the stand across from the Cantina in the same area are better than the other garlic fries in the park and are on an uphill swing. Don't expect miracles, however.

    1. Fish & chips at Murph's and their Irish coffees are great on a cold, foggy night; if you're on the Club or Field Club level -- the beef brisket sandwich or roast turkey sandwich from the person who carves the meat (forget the name of the vendor), strawberry shortcake, Ghiradelli's hot fudge sundae. Enjoy the game!

        Those hot fudge sundaes do indeed look pretty good...but it has been too cold for me to want to order one...! (I am not sure where you order them, but you don't need to be on the Club Level to get one: at Wednesday night's game the woman next to me had two she got somewhere near our section (102)...

          The sundaes are under the bleachers in center field.

          I second the fish and chips. I like the chips better then the garlic fries.

        3. Be advised not all "options" are available to all fans.

          I also recommend Orlandos, but the sandwich, not the bowl, costs ~$10.

          I can not recommend an Irish Coffee, the cups are plastic with a hollow stem, the sugar stays in the hollow stem, the coffee isn't very good, ~$8.

          The "carved deli sandwiches" look good, though lack quality control, I occasionally see them, but don't know where they are sold. Last one I saw, was roast beef au jus, the bread disintegrated from the jus, another one I saw, the slice of beef was ~1 inch thick, and was tough.

          They sell Compadres Burritos at the park.

          1. I take in my own food - usually Banh Mi from Saigon Sandwiches.

              that's exactly what i did for wednesday's game!

            2. We visited for a giants game some time ago, so I don't know how accurate this still is. We were in the upper deck, left field side, and had the most amazing garlic fries. I'd never had anything like that before and the H and I both left with tremendous garlic breath! It was worth it. :)
