Dodger Stadium Chow


#1

Headed to Dodger Stadium tonight, and it’s been two years since I’ve been. Anything new and Chow-worthy?


#2

At Dodger Stadium? Or on the way there?

If the latter, I’d be tempted to stop off at House of Bao in Chinatown.

Pan-fried buns for the win!

House of Bao
Caesar Chavez Ave (X-street Grand Ave)

Is Little Jewel relatively close (and open)? I think the place has gotten pretty recent reviews.


#4

Buns sound awesome, but we’ll be dining at the stadium.


#5

FYI, current Stadium concessions are crap. There was a period there where there was decent variety: Canter’s, King Taco, Gordon Biersch, Carl’s Jr. No more. It’s all in-house stuff. Exemplifying the homogeneity: The “LA Taqueria” that replaced King Taco has exactly one type of meat–carne asada–and if you can believe this, no hot sauce. None.

Beyond a Dodger Dog, it’s slim pickins there anymore.

(this excludes the Tommy Lasorda joint…too far away from our seats to bother.)


#6

Always Langer’s berfore 4pm and you can do curbside pickup when you call ahead…


#7

I don’t know about the rest of L.A., but I have to be there for the first pitch. And I’m always running late. Which means, I NEVER have time to stop somewhere en route.

Sadly, this dooms me to Dodger Dogs or a dinner of Nachos In A Helmet.

Would that it were not so.

If coming from West Hollywood or Mid City a bag of Ink.Sack sandwiches travel wonderfully. Same with Bay Cities Italian Market in the Santa Monica area.


#9

I was disappointed in House of Bao.


#10

For Chinatown, you have to lower your standards.

Certainly not as low for points west of La Cienega, but still lower.

I seriously think we Angelenos are spoiled. No, actually, I know we are.

Spending time in SD, for example, will make you envy what is available outside the 626.

Yep! So do some Orleans and York Sandwiches. They have a new place on Spring in DTLA for easy pick up.

–Dommy!


#12

Jesstifer–im in agreement with most folks here that there’s not much but i got no problem with nachos yellow cheese and pickled jalapenos and good beer…after three or four the dodger dogs aren’t so terrible!


#13

Texas Frito Pie Dodger Dog and it was not bad…


#14

I had the Big Kid Dog last Friday. The Mac and Cheese was a bit Bland, but the Fritos and smokey/salty hot dog saved the day. It wasn’t awful. But for the price, I’d rather bring in a O&Y Roast Beef and Onion Sandwich.

–Dommy!

playoffs make them taste better!


#16

That’s definitely not finger food.
