For Arizona Diamondbacks fans who like to adhere to the fundamentals at home games, peanuts, popcorn, and Cracker Jack stay evident alternatives. Be that as it may, for those whose game-day taste borders on absurd, Stephen Tilder, official chef specialist at Chase Field in Phoenix, has a few alternatives.
People can get 18-inch bratwursts enhanced including tater tots to fried eggs.
Chase Field is among the arenas across the country that currently tout menus brimming with outrageous edible novelties.
“We are always trying to create, basically, restaurant quality food in a ballpark,” Tilder says. “When people come in we want to blow their mind.”
In March, Tilder — as a team with a Sports Illustrated correspondent – made three new gigantic dogs for Diamondbacks’ fans. One of those, the SI Cover Dog (named after the magazine) is topped with jalapeño-apple coleslaw, barbecue aioli, fried mac and cheese, house restored lager pickles and green onion. It’s everything served between an onion bun.
There’s additionally Reuben Some Dirt On It Dog, which highlights fried pickles and a secret sauce and All-Day Breakfast Dog — with hash browns, nation sauce and fried eggs.
Tilder said the Tot Dog, which has tater tots and chili, is one of his top merchants.
“It’s a little spicy from the chili, you get the crunch from the tater tots, you get the coolness of the sour cream — so there’s so many layers that go really well with each other,” Tilder says.
The last element of every one of Chase Field’s specialty dogs? A $30 sticker price.
This baseball season, NPR’s Morning Edition found that Chase Field is a long way from the main arena reexamining the game’s culinary wheel. From the Atlanta Braves’ Blooper Burger to the D.C. Nationals’ Bulgogi Hoagie, across the nation, insane mixtures are enticing fans to abandon the traditional ballgame snacks of the past.
