The Los Angeles Dodgers are back in the postseason for the sixth year in a row, kicking off the National League Division Series at home in Chavez Ravine tonight. And as tradition now dictates for the Levy Restaurant Group’s culinary team that operates the baseball park, the one-off food creations for this series are ludicrous.
This postseason the team is offering more than half-a-dozen new menu items at various bars and levels, including some that are inspired by the opposing team Atlanta Braves and their home state of Georgia. That’s certainly the case with the so-called Rib Bundle, which is basically just a big paper cup filled with fries, macaroni salad, and bone-on ribs with just a hint of peach. Yes, it’s all just kinda sitting in one bowl, and can be found at the King’s Hawaiian on the Reserve level.
In in a similar vein, the stadium crew is also offering smoked bbq wings done in a peach sauce, and served at the Jim Beam bar. Other fine options include a carne asada nacho bowl served in a plastic helmet and available at several stands along the Reserve level; a hot link with barbecue sauce and slaw from King’s Hawaiian Grill; and a meat-lovers pizza with meatballs, pepperoni, and sausage found at Lasorda’s, and at Loge and Reserve level.
The coup de grace is the below mac and cheese hot link burrito, an otherworldly concoction that puts actual macaroni and cheese inside a tortilla alongside as full hot link, a bunch of pulled pork, and a grip of baked beans. If anything it looks awfully similar to the popular burrito available at Ray’s BBQ in Huntington Park, though it’s unclear if that’s where Dodger chef Ryan Evans got the idea. Again, this one’s available from the King’s Hawaiian Grill.
All of these monstrous new food items are available starting tonight and for game two of the series on Friday at home. Should there be a need for a game five in the series, that will mean a return for these menu items on October 10. Go Dodgers.
