When people talk about the infamous Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California, they’re usually talking about the non-stop music or the inspiring art. Many, however, don’t take the time to really appreciate something else Coachella does a great job at…the food. From street vendors to food trucks to even renewed restaurants, Coachella deserves an A+ for their delicious, though rather expensive, festival food. If you’re thinking about going to Coachella next year, you need to try these foods you missed.
1. Lamb Gyro
With lettuce, tomato, lamb and a yogurt-based sauce, this lamb gyro was definitely number one on our food list.
2. Asian Salad Wrap
The Asian Salad is good enough on its own but wrapped inside a tomato tortilla wrap it was even better. With just the right amount of sesame dressing and a lot of salted peanuts, this wrap is definitely one you don’t want to miss
3. Brie-Pear Melt
Instead of ordering a traditional grilled cheese sandwich, you definitely need to try this brie-pear melt, found in the Sandwiches and Wraps booth. Two slices or artisan bread with brie-cheese, sliced pear, fig jam and arugula will have you adding this wonderful sandwich to your to-do list.
The taco booth is one of the least expensive food booths, plus, it is the one with the widest array of options. From Tacos al Pastor to chicken tacos to even shrimp tacos, you can order almost anything – and with that extra lime juice, it will taste perfect.
As opposed to the Ultra, which is much about enjoying the music, Coachella has more to offer than the amazing music. The art, chill atmosphere and wide array of food make it a festival you definitely don’t want to miss.
