L.A. County Fair Free Ticket Giveaway

O.K. I will admit it, I am a County Fair junkie. Even though I was burnt out from Fair Food at the OC fair, the L.A. County Fair is drawings me back in like a siren to the rocks. The L.A. County Fair is perhaps the mother of all county fairs on the West Coast, with a larger footprint and more importantly more foodie choices.

For those who don’t know, some of the best vendors travel the county fair circuit. Throughout the county fair season, they  test recipe and experiment with new concoctions. In addition, every fair brings out unique vendors to that fair, often from local restaurant. I recently visited a preview of the L.A. County Fair and got to taste some of the vendors who will be there. It is full of our favorites like Chicken Charlie to some other vendors exclusive to the L.A. County Fair.

This is from Last Year’s L.A. County Fair, I was ready to eat

Chicken Charlies – All of your favorites from the OC Fair will be at the L.A. County Fair, including the deep fried Twinkies and chicken skewers. Although the new item they are introducing at this year’s L.A.County fair is their Krispy Crème burger.

Tasti Chips– For anyone who suffers from gluten allergies, Tasti Chips offers a nice treat for you. California potatoes are deep-fried in Allergen free peanut oil to a puffy crisp. Their newest item this year is their Chipotle BBQ Beef “Dirty” Chips.

I love their new creation, just for the L.A. County Fair. Their standard house made chips still have a special place in my heart

Fresh Fries – Although this vendor excels with its fresh baked French fries, I really liked their BBQ sundae, made with BBQ beef brisket over mashed potatoes and topped with a cherry tomato.

For example there is a full wine and craft beer tasting bar that you can taste some of California best brews. If you are properly stuffed, you might consider visiting the Live Shark Encounter, where you can come face to face with sharks. If you eat enough fried food, you might just become more appealing to our point tooth friends.
