The OC Fair in Costa Mesa continues through August 14th. What’s new in Fair Food? We’ll chat with “Chicken Charlie” Boghosian, a pioneer in fair food favorites. You just might call him the “King” of fried fair food! He invented the deep-fried Oreo, still his favorite deep-fried creation.
In the just concluded Fair Food Competition, The Concessionaire’s Cup, Charlie was awarded Gold medals for his bacon-wrapped fried chicken leg (Best Fried Food) and for his Maui Bowl (Ethnic Category.)
New for Chicken Charlie this year is the clever Chicken In a Waffle On a Stick, and Escargot and Caviar Doritos.
Away from the Summer Fair circuit “Chicken Charlie” Boghosian has a year-round restaurant in San Diego. It’s Chicken Charlie’s FryBQ.
