I'm nervous about where it says "the Terrace is now the main food hub" in the venue. I like how there is food basically all around the perimeter of the festival, so I never have to walk too far or wait in lines that are too long if I don't want to. The thought of a centralized food area makes me nervous- I don't want to be walking back and forth all day... I wish we had a venue map already.:confused:

How much do you eat?

Will there still be the vegan food? Not a vegan, but that's some good eats, and frankly, will not leave you wanting for a porta-potty shortly thereafter.

Hopefully there will still be a few food vendors near the outdoor and across from the sahara this year

Kogi is excellent, and definitely worth a visit!

^^I didn't consider this before, I hope it's still spread around the perimeter as well.

Can anyone ID this vendor from last year? I was annihilated off my ass, so I don't remember the name of the place, but I got this GIANT plate of Chinese food for like $8....it had noodles, egg roll, veggies, and an entree too I think. Saved my life on Saturday last year and I still remember it's yummy energy-fueling power fondly :)

The steak sandwiches from Ruth Chris' were filet mingon sandwiches. $12 each, fucking worth it.

Last year my wife and I really enjoyed Cowboys and Turbans.. and there better be Cookie Pie!

Where was this info posted? I haven't seen many official announcements this year.

a. What is Cowboys and Turbans? I don't remember seeing that last yr?

b. I second that, where is that announcement?

EDIT: Nevermind on the Cowboys and Turbans...actually ate there last year and didn't pay any attention to the name.

Not sure of the name, I think it might just be titled as "Chinese Food" or something generic. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I have eaten from this place every single year though. Probably one of the best values imo

Yeah, after going to Cowboys and Turbans at Coachella last year, my wife and I ended up going to the one in L.A. It's a good mexican/indian food combo, and the tiki masala burrito was fairly inexpensive for festival food.

Didn't see Ruth Chris last year, I will be looking out for it this year. I'm a steak fiend and love Ruth Chris'.

That's exactly what I had..it was excellent! Didn't know they had a location in LA..I have to scout that out.

I used to live in LA and had Cowboys and Turbans a couple of times. Really good stuff, and the owner's a cool guy. Glad to hear they might show up at Coachella.

Edit: Yeah, it's connected to El Rey. Nice way to grab food between sets when you see a show there.

There is nothing on the website about it

Cowboys & Turbans used to be attached to the El Rey but they're gone now. I think they just have one location in Silverlake now.

Yes, we went to the C&T in Silverlake. There was a Groupon for it recently. I wish I would have bought it, because I think it was a pretty good deal.
