Must-Read: Ballpark Delicacies
Baseball is great. We love baseball. There is no better sport, I don’t care your various arguments. Hell, even now during the NBA playoffs, which are admittedly amazing, we still follow baseball games on a nightly basis WHILE the NBA and NHL playoffs are going on. Because, like we said, baseball is awesome. But also awesome, is baseball FOOD. Going to a game is an excuse to spend about $50 on about two beers, and then get yourself the biggest and silliest piece of food in the stadium. But the trick is knowing what’s out there before heading to the ballpark to know just how long you should go without eating before the first pitch.
So today, just for the hell of it, we’re heading to Bleacher Report in order to take a look at their list of the weirdest ballpark foods in America. Among the craziest of the crazy that they highlight are these pieces of work:
“Gilroy Garlic Fries”: AT&T Park (San Francisco Giants)
No joke, while sitting at a coffee shop typing this article up, a guy next to us realized the topic we were doing, turned to us and said, “I’m from San Francisco. If you don’t put the Giants’ garlic fries on there, your list won’t be complete.”
This led us to two conclusions.
1) We need to do a better job disguising our computer screen.
2) These things must be pretty damn good.
Hearing that they’re covered in garlic and herbs makes my mouth water—and mind loathe about what my breath might smell like afterward.
We can certainly attest to the glory of these fries. So head on over and get yourself some next time you’re checking out a game in San Francisco. But also, head on over to the link above and check out the rest of the crazy ballpark food in your area.
