Coachella is exactly 16 days away and here's to hoping that weekend one is NOT freezing as it so happened last year. So far so good. Anyway, let's talk Coachella + festival grounds food. From traditional to vegan and veggie to gluten-free, we've got you covered on what to expect. As usual, Coachella is placing an emphasis on local, fresh ingredients and biodegradeable serviceware. There will be Certified Organic Farmer's Markets (located next to the clubhouse and open for 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. that will also feature a breakfast buffet), Kogi is back in the VIP, meanwhile outspoken and colorful New York chef Eddie Huang is bring his Taiwanese street food restaurant Baohaus to the desert. Quite interesting, really.
Also new this year will be two on-site restaurants — one in the campgrounds called Campground Café (think Johnny cakes, eggs Benedict, hangover hash) and one in the lobby area of the festival site, an air conditioned Cantina Restaurant.
Within the centrally located F&B area known as The Terrace one will find a beer garden and offerings from area restaurants like Ruth Chris Steakhouse, Las Casuelas Quinta, Baohaus (known for Huang's Taiwanese Chicken), Pink's Hotdogs plus Jamaican Vegetarian, Wood Fired Pizza, Just Tossed Organic Salads and Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Inside the VIP area, next to the Ferris Wheel and in the campgrounds, notable trucks such as Kogi, Border Grill, Green Truck, Coolhaus and The Lime Truck will set up camp. Non-truck related food will also come from The Hudson, The Churchill, and Clover Juice.
Finally, over in the campgrounds expect early morning hot coffee from Drip Mobile Espresso, fresh pressed juice from the Juicebox Food Truck and breakfast fare from Epic Burritos. Spicy Pie will also offer late night slices. GET. READY.
