A Taste of Knott’s Berry Farm

Knott’s Berry Farm has more food to offer than funnel cakes

 I was recently invited to a media preview of “A Taste of Knott’s” to highlight their food from around the park. I will be perfectly honest with you, I have grown to think about food at Knott’s Berry Farm as only fried chicken and funnel cake.

I learned that they actually have much more good food then you may realize. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the options. If you are going to Knott’s for the last days of summer, let this be a quick guide on where to eat! This blog post is largely a photo journal of where to eat, but here are a couple of my favorites:

The one item that I liked, but didn’t get a picture was the Hawaiian Ahi Poke. Although definitely not as good as the real thing from Hawaii, I was pleasantly surprised that they made a respectable Ahi Poke Bowl.

Just the like Pink’s in Los Angeles, but with no lines!

Aside from the restaurants at the Knott’s facilities, you might be surprised that the Knott’s campus was grown it’s footprint to include a Pink’s Hotdog and a TGIF at the California Marketplace ,located outside the park. On Sunday’s Knott’s also does a Sunday Champagne brunch. I have not attend this brunch myself, but I hear that the food is good.
