Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival

0
The Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is a music festival held annually in San Francisco, California, at Golden Gate Park and this year’s event was held this past weekend.

This year marks the 10th Outside Lands.  There were an impressive 81 restaurants, 41 wineries, 30 breweries, and 6 cocktail bars in all this year! There were also some new restaurant partners on my to-visit list: Tartine Manufactory with morning buns and toasted mortadella hoagies (!!), Dabba (so tasty, check out their “ethnic confusion” burritos), spicy fried chicken sandwiches from Sorrel, Shanghai lumpia from FOB Kitchen, slices of deep-dish pizza from Little Star, Marlowe’s bacon burgers (thanks to this year’s food curator Anna Weinberg), and Black Cat’s lamb burgers.

You can warm up with jambalaya (or gumbo!) from Alba Ray’s when Karl the Fog is hanging around too much, and I’m sure Fearless Coffee’s olive oil-fried egg sandwiches will come in handy one hungover morning. Ditto doughnuts from Johnny Doughnuts (coming to Hayes Valley over Labor Day!) and coffee from the Lady Falcon Coffee Club (mmmm, mochas with Mexican vanilla whipped cream). Humphry Slocombe served Secret Breakfast Sundaes and Bourbon Coke Floats.

Of course there are some OSL classics like fried chicken and waffles from Little Skillet, chicken curry nachos and lamb sloppy joes (so good) from Azalina’s, porcini doughnuts from Rich Table (bring on the raclette!), momos from Bini’s Kitchen, and then Stones Throw is making monkey-bread chicken Parm melts and Italian-style tater tots that sound wicked (last year’s meatball sandwich was a winner, so I am all over that Parm).

Ramen from Itani Ramen will warm you up (and I plan to check out their fried chicken gyoza at Wine Lands), while crab rolls from Fine & Rare and pastrami cheese fries from Wise Sons Deli will fill you up and give you energy to walk and dance all over the park. Don’t forget Outside Clams! I love the OSL puns. LOL.
