It’s that time again, the Orange County Fair is back for it’s annual summer fun.
We took advantage of the $2 admission on Sundays and headed out to the fair around 11am. This weekend was opening weekend so even though it was packed, it wasn’t as crowded as usual.
Ironically, most of the food I ate were similar to the ones I had during our honeymoon. Go figure!
We had these fried potatoes served on a stick called Twistix at the beach in Boracay. They were really flavorful and we ate each chip one by one savoring the barbeque seasoning and cheddar cheese on the other half of the stick.
Today at the fair, we ate the same thing with cheese but without the stick or the beach
Street vendors sold roasted corn in Boracay right along the beach. They were simple and meant to be eaten as is.
But today’s corn was more complicated. Not only was it juicy, there was a self serve bar for all the toppings you can add to it.
Along with butter and cheese, lime juice and cayenne pepper were added to the corn. Complete with everything Chris added on, in the end, it was probably a seven layer roasted corn special.
We are doing our part eating local food. “Be Californian. Buy California.”
I also ate falafel and gyro dishes, which I shared with my friend Caroline.
In the sea of deep fried this, deep fried that and deep fried kool-aid…there were also some healthy food available. You can also request to have these covered with chocolate if you wish.
Or you can have this too if you want.
We had a wonderful and very hot day at the fair. I loved this year’s theme “Let’s Eat” because it included an area where you can walk around fruit and vegetable gardens, which I enjoyed every much.
