Shrimp Pimp King was amazing
The Indian 'Combo Plate' was delicious
I liked the Spicy Pie but i think they'd added extra artery clogging oil this year....ouch!
Where was Ben & Jerry's?
I loved the Freebirds burritos!
And I also had 2 Tiger Blood shaved ice each day!
1/2 pound italian sausage
This ain't no middle of the mall shit.
I really liked pie for the people (or something like that). It was a pizza joint with a pizza called "David Bowie" I think. Really good stuff. There was a burrito stand by the Outdoor stage that sold steak burritos with rice, black beans, and cheese. They were huge and only $8. Reminded me of chipotle.
Also the garlic fries were great. My favourite was a stand over by the pie for the people -- I think they mostly sold greek food, but they just put huge chunks of garlic.
Spicy Pie was great, i also think i ate about 10 fish tacos over the weekend from the pot over in lot 8....
I love the gyros there. Only problem is they didn't give you forks on Saturday or Sunday, so it was kind of gross trying to eat them.
Spicy Pie and Pinks were shit, the Colbi truck and Johnny's or whatever it was, the sandwich place, were awesome.
I had my usually hippie wraps this year, but they really LAGGED this year, Friday, no wraps! They must have had some difficulties with their logistics this year. Pretty poor setups at the campgrounds and by the outdoor stage. Hopefully it gets improved next year. I want my fucking hippie wrap god dammit.
Worst was the burrito stand (there were a few) but one of them advertised a "Chicken Burrito" that was basically chicken in a tortilla. Just dry chicken. No rice, no nothin'! Just dry-ass chicken. Yuck.
I had the garlic fries with the crab on Saturday night!
Gyros tasted yummy. Short line too.
FOUR TET. HOT CHIP. SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO. BOOKA SHADE. LEE SCRATCH PERRY. BEACH HOUSE.
Richie Hawtin. James Blake. Loco Dice.
Spicy pie really disappointed me this year. I got a pepperoni slice with only 4 pepperonis. The johnny Maguires sandwich place was so good though.
Honestly I have never been that impressed with the food at Coachella but I did like the Pizza from the place across from the Sahara this year

have to agree with a few others in saying the Ruths Chris steak sandwich was so good!!! I felt guilty standing in line, about to buy from a large restaurant food chain, instead of supporting the little guy. Until I took my first bite. So fucking good. No regrets.
even though I live in LA, I still think Pinks was the best
Who made those crab fries? I didn't get to see what the name of the place was. Andddddd the lemonade vendor was also delicious. Crab fries and lemonade was all I had that weekend.
Chicago pizza and Breakfast Burritos!!!!!
Four months later, I still have dreams about this. <3

They added mustard. Mmmmmm. Not many people like mustard on their fries.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
I got a gyro in the venue that was fucking delicous, spicy pie was always a safe choice but ill forever avoid the disgustingly bland breakfast burritos w/ even worse salsa

Coachella is fueled by Spicy Pie.
2012 will be my first year back since 2006, but spicy pie has been part of my plan since then. I need to find those fries though.
I would never defend the quality of spicy pie; however, there is just something about being at Coachella and eating a big slice that makes me very very happy.
Spicy Pie was great.
There was a burrito place in the beer garden - it was up against the fence where VIPs could enter - and they had these really good chicken burritos. I ate one every night.
I only discovered Freshers Frozen Lemonade on the last day, next year they will be getting my business more than once.
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
City Wok. Always a treat.
