Top 5 El Paso Downtown Street Fest Foods
If there is one thing fatties, I mean, foodies, like me love, it’s the Street Fest. A myriad, a mind-boggling array, yes, dare I say it, a plethora of fabulous street food all laid out in neat little carts and tents, and all we have to do is buy a ticket! And the best thing? There are a zillion other people wandering around eating, too, so no one is watching how much you’re putting away!
Each year, I always get my favorites, and the funny thing is, I hardly ever eat them throughout the rest of the year. It’s like Thanksgiving, only in the summer!
So, without further ado, here are my Top 5 El Paso Downtown Street Fest Foods!
5. Gorditas – Oh my, is there anything more wonderful than perfectly fried gordita shells filled with tasty ground beef and potatoes? No, I tell you, there is not.
4. Turkey Legs – Turkey leg in the left hand + cold beer in the right hand = Street Fest nirvana!
3. Elote – Whether on the cob or in the cup, elote is one of my favorite Street Fest foods and the one thing I absolutely will not share with anyone.
2. Kettle corn – Get the big bag because popcorn is good for you. It’s a grain, right? And the cool thing is you can watch them make it fresh and marvel at the carmelization process.
1. Tropical Snow – A zillion flavors, a zillion colors. It’s refreshing, it turns your tongue unnatural colors, and if your eyeballs pop out of your head when you crunch the ice, you’ll know you have a dental issue. No need for expensive x-rays!
Join us June 17 & 18 for the El Paso Downtown Street Fest, but be warned, I plan on getting there very early – and I eat a lot!
