The 2022 OC Fair opened the gates on Friday, July 15th. Outrageous Fair Food is always a mouthwatering highlight. What crazy edible will they next put on a stick? One of the all-star, Fair Food personalities is the well-traveled Midway Gourmet, Chef Dominic Palmieri of Biggy’s fame on the RCS Carnival Midway.
Chef Dominic has noticed a taste trend in addition to the continuing appeal of spicy flavors. The creative minds at The Midway Gourmet have found spicy inspiration and now perfected a line of chicken sandwiches including the Hot Cheeto Chicken Sandwich, Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich, and Cap’n Crunch Chicken Sandwich (topped with cereal.)
Also a juicy, Flaming Hot Cheeseburger topped with Hot Cheetos with premium Angus beef. It’s a flame-grilled charbroiled burger sandwiched between a toasted buttery bun dipped in melted cheddar cheese then rolled in ground-up hot Cheetos. The burger is then topped with melted cheese and whole crunchy hot Cheetos.
In the new, and (possibly) over-the-top department is a Hot Cheeto Float which is a lemon-lime float topped with Hot Cheetos. The fresh whipped cream tames it.
Think there is nothing new in the proud Fair tradition of funnel cakes? How about a warm Cap’n Crunch Funnel Cake?
We’ll find out what other indulgent deliciousness Chef Dominic is cooking up now through August 14th with Chef Dominic himself.
