What’s New to Eat at Dodger Stadium, 2022 Edition (Eater LA)

From cocktails to desserts to chicken taquitos, these new dishes have something for everyone…

Dodger Stadium boasts plenty of fan food favorites to choose from, like the beloved traditional or plant-based Dodger Dog, garlic fries, the $21 michelada, or nachos in a mini baseball hat. Fans (who follow a few key rules) can even bring in outside food, either packed at home or picked up from local restaurants nearby. During the 2022 season — depending on the section — some new items are available for fans sporting Dodger blue or any team gear; let’s dig in.

I do have to give the Dodgers credit for revamping their food options in recent seasons. What once was just peanuts, Cracker Jacks, and soggy Dodger Dogs, now stadium concessions has really leaned into local gastronomy, embracing cuisine from Mexico, South Korea, and, uh… California Pizza Kitchen.

Food-wise, what’s happening at YOUR stadium?

I'll be making my first visit to DS in three years this coming Wednesday, and will report back.

One of the closest spots to my 10-game package's seats is the "Fenway Test Kitchen", which has had some fun things that occasionally get added to the rotation but mostly don't because they tend to have more steps than a hot dog or sausage (plus, I swear, that's where Aramark puts the least-efficient people on staff). The last game had a chicken and waffle sandwich with maple-marinated pork belly. Not bad, although by the time I figured out the best way to hold it my hands were a bit sticky. My favorite thing they tried was pulled-pork sandwiches and burgers on King's Hawaiian buns.

They had loaded fries ("Stax") for a few years before Covid, but they were kind of "we think we can do poutine better by changing a few things" and it didn't work out so well.

Souvenir cups seem to have taken a hit in size this year, too.

Afraid to ask, but what things?

Someday I’ll get over my intense aversion to people putting an ‘s’ on Cracker Jack. I should probably just shut up and eat my pop corns.

#4 That's one of my pet peeves too, so you are not alone.

Yeah everyone should know that the proper way to pluralize it is "Crackers Jack".

The BDC Dome has dead-plain generic food concessions with cutesy names like "Slugfest Sandwiches," "Bullpen BBQ," "Backstop Burger," "Go Deep Fried" … almost as if they think nobody has ever previously considered food in baseball-park contexts, or perhaps that they feel they have to keep reminding people what sport they are not watching as they go get food.

The Ballpark had all sorts of weird items named after Ranger players (the Beltre Buster burger, the Choomungous kimchi dog), and food based on the Texas State Fair custom of deep-frying random stuff, and a chicken-&-donuts stand, and a popcorn wagon and beer taps that pumped the beer up through the bottom of cups using magic magnets, and it was very stupid and probably some of the options were money-losers, but it had evolved a unique dizzy culture. The new dispensation seems to be designed by robots starting from a blank screen.

Beer selection is much sparser than BITD, mostly Karbach – a perfectly OK Houston brewery. I guess it did not help that the biggest Arlington craft brewer, Legal Draft, just went bankrupt. Legal Draft beers, not as good as Karbach but at least local, were in the Dome last year.

And after posting 4 I clicked through on the $151 Braves burger article and was smacked in the face by the lyrics to Take Me Out to the Ballgame with the gaffe. This is my cross to bear.

3 - It's been a couple years, but the shredded cheese didn't mix with the gravy as well as curds (or mozzarella, in a pinch) do, or they'd use cheap barbecue sauce in stead of gravy, and then there was this absolute monstrosity where they more or less dumped clam chowder over fries. It's actually kind of impressive how well classic Montreal poutine works for something that was legendarily just throwing crap together.

For a brief period of time in 2003, I insisted that people should use the more correct RsBI.
