Weekend Food Getaway: Outside Lands
by Harrison Reilly
The annual Outside Lands music festival was held in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park this past weekend and I was lucky enough to attend all three days. In between watching bands like Radiohead, Third Eye Blind and Duran Duran, I was able to try food from vendors across the Bay Area. It was a SacFoodie’s dream!
With help from my lovely sisters, I complied this list of the best food we tried at Outside Lands.
Spicy Tater Tots from The Japanese Pantry.
These tater tots were the perfect snack on a cold and foggy afternoon.
Rambenburger from Nombe.
This burger included 50/50 pork belly & Kobe patty, blue cheese, buttered shiitake, pickled onions, and Miso Sauce.
Porcini Doughnuts with Raclette Cheese from Rich Table.
These doughnuts were a pleasant surprise and a great combo of sweet and savory.
Fried Chicken Sandwich from Proposition Chicken.
The “Best Damn Cheeseburger” from 4505 Meats.
This burger is well known across the city and can be found at the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market in San Francisco.
Brunch at Zazie.
As a post-Outside Lands recovery, we decided to get brunch at Zazie in Cole Valley in San Francisco. This popular brunch spot is famous for its pancakes, scrambles and eggs benedict dishes.
If you’re looking for a unique festival experience that boasts some of the best food San Francisco has to offer, make sure to buy a ticket to Outside Lands next summer.
