Holy bejesus! When people wonder why we're fat, this is why and we're extremely happy to oblige. In anticipation of Tuesday's home opener, the Dodgers today announced salivating news.
Fans will be happy that the spicy Picante Dog will be back on the menu throughout Dodger Stadium. Officials say it's due to "overwhelming fan demand," including the presence of a Facebook page dedicated to the cause.
The other big news is a new item. The Victory Knot is the traditional soft pretzel on steroids. "Enough to feed about four hungry fans, this giant pretzel is made with two pounds of dough, topped with sea salt and served with three dipping sauces - chipotle honey mustard, sweet cinnamon crème and beer cheese - in a full-size pizza box," explain the Dodgers. The item will be found at Campy’s Corner stand (stand 204) on the Field Level.
Dippin’ Dots will be back, available at portable carts on the Field and Reserve levels, as well as beer-battered fish tacos at the Camacho’s stands
And the Kaiser Permanente Healthy Plate Carts will continue with an expanded menu. New items this year include Curried Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Spicy Shrimp Cocktail and sushi. For vegetarians, the veggie dog is still available and found at three different stands: Field Level 222, 223 and Reserve Stand 738.
The All-You-Can-Eat Right Field Pavilion will continue and this year tickets will be $5 cheaper if you buy in advance. The My Town Nights will also continue with USC and UCLA (April 29th and 30th, respectively, with Pastrami sandwiches as the special item), Taiwan (May 22: Shacha sauce spiced pork, Jasmine steamed rice and Lychee), Venezuela (May 23: Pabellon Criollo, shredded beef and black beans served over white rice, and plantain chips), Cuba (June 6: Sandwich Cubano and plantain chips), Japan (June 21: Teriyaki chicken, steamed jasmine rice and edamame), Korea (August 18: Spicy Korean style BBQ chicken and Kim chee) and Mexico (September 19: Carne asada tacos and elote a la parilla).
