The whole idea of standing in a line and then finding a place to sit down and eat, seems absurd to me. Just knowing that there are sets to see, fields to cross, and a bladder to empty, curbs my appetite enough to settle and be fine with either a Pretzel w/salt and a spot of mustard, or a Churro for each hand. If I'm starving at the end of the night I might go for a slice of Spicy Pie, or those Pulled Pork Sandwiches to eat back in the campground.
I remember a few years back, they had Ceviche in the campground that was pretty damn good, but I haven't seen it since. Other than that, it's all about WATER! (Well, that and tequila... ;)-)
Spicy pie was pretty damn good. They had a gouda and spinach a couple years ago that just hit the spot.
Dear Spicy Pie merchants... PLEASE look into this technology.
The ultimate way to make deliciousness portable.
OMG! I am from the UK and went to Coachella last year and the whole experience was amazing! My fav food there was the Kogi Sliders! I onlt discovered them on the final night and they were awesome and I think I must have had about 6 on my final night! Gutted not going this year! Best experience of my life :D
How do you stay so happy
I almost never eat while I'm there. Between the (normal) heat and all the walking around I'm just not hungry during the day, I eat a big meal before going into the fest and then eat after leaving. The only vendors that really get a sizable grip of my money are the Fresher's frozen lemonade stands.
THere was a place selling the most delicious tri-tip sandwiches I've ever eaten. I forget the name, but I hope they are back.
And of course Spicy Pie. Nothing is better at 11pm than a slice of pie.
Was it Ruth's Chris?
Does anybody know if it's The Hudsons (LA) first time vending at the festival?
They have the best short rib grilled cheese and tomato soup.
The Vegan pizza place in the VIP was awesome
In 09, in the campgrounds, some truck was making ice cream sandwiches with freshly baked cookies......
they were obscenely delicious....
I have looked for them every year and they have never been back....
Spicy Pie is a staple. had Pinks once. had the worst gyro i've ever had.
ate at the breakfast buffet twice, definitely horrible, but for $10, if you're not hungover, you'll appreciate it.
100000000% the breakfast buffet
To this day, that breakfast buffet at the campsite was the worst quality food I have ever had the misfortune of digesting. My buddy still gives me shit about making him to go there instead of the breakfast wrap stand a couple doors down, which by the way was five star Charlie Trotter gourmet in comparison.
And the coffee was undrinkable swill.
I've never tried the breakfast buffet, always a long line and crowded. This is the first year we'll be taking a grill and propane. And a french press. Suck it breakfast buffet.
It's been a few years, but my wife (at the time) ended up in an ambulance and sent to the Indio E.R. after eating a Greek Salad that went bad. When it gets blazing hot, you gotta be careful how the vendors are handling the food. And on top of everything else, we missed Massive Attack.
there's a guacamole stand in the main food area (near main stage) that makes the perfect guacamole. best food for festival crackheads without appetites.
attila the honey's 3-day festival pussy
D, don't do this.
