A Season of Ballpark Food

Citi Field, Queens, N.Y., home of the New York Mets

Citi Field food

Pat LaFrieda filet mignon sandwich. Delicious. But costs about as much as an upper deck ticket.

the classics

Pulled port sandwich

Blue Smoke pulled pork. Tastes much better than it looks in this picture. This was a late inning buy. The staff had lost interest in presentation.

TD Bank Ballpark, Bridgewater, N.J., home of the Somerset Patriots

Burrito Bowl

Burrito bowl with beef brisket and roasted tomato salsa

TD Bank ballpark beer stand

and for a chaser

Healthy plate

Considering that I ate all this other stuff, I didn’t think a stop here would help that much.

Arm & Hammer Park, Trenton, N.J., home of the Trenton Thunder

Palisades Credit Union Park, Pomona, N.Y., home of the Rockland Boulders

Japanese in Rockland

Chicken teriyaki and dumplings. One of the best ballpark meals I had.

Skylands Park, Augusta, N.J., home of the Sussex County Miners

hot dogs

The best straight-up hot dogs I had were at Sussex County

cookies

Best deal of the summer. (And they’re every bit as good as they look.)

Miners sausage

Italian sausage with peppers and onions. In a state where there is an Italian deli on ever block, they could do a lot better than this. By the way, I went to several Miners games. I didn’t eat all this at one game.

Yogi Berra Stadium, Little Falls, N.J., home of the New Jersey Jackals

Gelotti

Jackals gelotti

funnel cake

Yikes! Look a the sugar on this one.

  3. I am salivating, yet almost in heart-attack mode from thinking about the nutritional content of the food pics 😉 I’m in the process of cleaning up my diet to help prevent cancer recurrence and will be cutting down on many “good” things like butter, mayo, and meats.

  4. Hmm…. some of these snacks looked so delicious, others were basically flattened roadkill in buns…. a very interesting culinary journey, Ken. It certainly beats the hot dogs and burgers we get served at soccer stadiums here. Thanks for writing and sharing this!
