Best Eats at this year's OC Fair?

Das Ubergeek | Jul 12, 2008 04:45 PM

It's that time of year again.

I headed in today to enter my cheesecake in the fair, but due to an absurd lack of signage and a shuttle driver who hit an SUV and every bollard in OCC's Adams lot, I had only 15 minutes to go eat before the judging began and so I ended up at the Greek place near the OC Building (stunningly mediocre with laughably stupid workers -- I had to total up my own bill because the machine was wrong, and the kid didn't know that the "vegetarian combo" I ordered from the picture was the "veg combo" on his register. Fortunately for them, I'm scrupulous and paid my correct amount).

I'm going back in two weeks to enter a pie in the pie and pastry competition, and now I've got my bearings... so what are the best eats this year at the OC Fair? The only rule is that I must eat green vegetables at every meal. (They can, however, be fried.)

Normally I get a date shake when I go to the fair, but that will have to wait -- the nice thing about competitions in the OC Fair is that when the judging and awards are done, you can eat the competition.
