Conan! What is best at the fair?

Diana Sep 12, 2008 02:00 PM

Besides the lamentation of their women!

I'm going next weekend, and I can only scarf so much without ralphing from the top of the ferris wheel.

What are people eating that makes the grade this year?

I gotta have my little bag of kettle corn and beer form the beer tasting bar-maybe some roasted corn, but beyond that?

Extra fair barbarian points if it's new. Super barbarian points if it is nut free (allergies, you know)

    There are several oak fired barbeques that offer heavenly tritip and even pork loin roasts. Roaed corn on the cob is usually nearby. Truly heavenly and one of the few things that taste better at the Fair than in a restaurant. Avoid the ubiquitous kettle korn, Indian bread, and funnel cakes unless you're doing research on American obesity and gallstones.

      churro in a bag.

      Freshly fried, not the prefabricated sticks.

      I go with BBQ and thick-skinned egg rolls.

      This year, there's deep fried cupcakes. I'm curious.

        How very overkill. I imagine they frost them after frying.
