In just 10 days the 2016 LA County Fair opens! That means deep-fried dinners and afternoon treats almost every day in September for us. Take a look at just a few of our newest Fair foods:
Deep-Fried Nachos
la county fair food They’re gooey. They’re crunchy. They’re delicious. We tried them the other day and plan on having them at least a couple times during Fair season.

This is one of our top dessert picks this year. Creamy, cold gelato paired with a shot of espresso means a sugar AND caffeine high. We sampled it when we visited the San Diego fair earlier this year.
Deep-Fried Hot Sauce
Every year Chicken Charlie creates a new deep-fried food, just for the LA County Fair. This year it’s Deep-Fried Hot Sauce. He gave us a sample to try and all we have to say is, YUM. This is definitely a must-try. 
Of course, we’re not all batter, cheese and sugar. We’re also serving up harvest bowls, salads, and vegan nachos, tacos and burritos, along with a number of other healthy options, if that’s what you prefer!
We want you to try all these food for yourself, which is why we’re hosting a Fair Food Giveaway!
