A hotdog bun filled with pulled pork, bacon bits and purple slaw might just be the perfect twist on America’s favorite ballpark food.
This is perhaps my favorite new food at Coors Field this season. It’s not really a taco, but it’s also not really a club. Confused yet? So was I, but once I took a bite I honestly could not go back. Seasoned ground beef, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried jalapenos and avocado sour cream on a roll is what your taste buds will experience when taking that sweet, fulfilling first taste.
The Chicken and Purple Slaw Taco Trio, a new concept on the taco according to Arp, is of course, made up of flour tortillas (otherwise it wouldn’t be a taco - believe me, I grew up in Mexico) and features chicken topped with salsa verde and purple slaw. You’ll be able to find the taco trio in the Captain’s Deck.
Available in the Mountain Ranch Club, the Rockies Triple Berry Fritters are topped with a sweet rum glaze sauce and silver sprinkles (or “pearls” as Arp called them), to make it “uniquely Rockies.” Get them and you’ll see why.
Anyone who claims to be from Colorado knows what a Rocky Mountain Oyster is (hint: they’re not oysters at all). If you’re feeling like you want to go all out on Opening Day, this Po’Boy might just be for you. The dish is loaded with garlic slaw, green chili ranch, guacamole, cojita cheese and pico de gallo all on a po’boy roll.
What would a ballpark be without mac and cheese? Certainly not a ballpark at all! The Mile High Mac and Cheese is what you would expect, but in order to be considered “Mile High,” the creators behind the meal added green chile, chorizo and pico de gallo to the dish to make it truly Colorado.
The name might be confusing, but fear not – it’s not just a salad. The Chicken Salad Sandwich is filled with chicken (duh), lettuce, tomato and bacon – all under the comforting texture of a croissant.
The Purple Yogurt is just one of two options for dessert at Coors Field this year.
Do you really need an explanation of what a Colorado Lamb Burger is? We didn’t think so – but the dish does look very appetizing, so if you’re not up for the Triple Play Dog, perhaps this should be your Plan B.
The banana pudding is just one of two options for dessert at Coors Field this year.
If you’re looking for something a bit more traditional for the ballpark, then you might want to go for the Braised Short Rib Nachos. This is a build-your-own toppings food item only at the suites, according to Arp. It includes jalapenos and is topped with a variety on the traditional pico de gallo salsa along with purple coleslaw.
The 25th Rockies anniversary beer is a lager made from European-American hops and comes directly from a microbrewery housed at Coors Field.
For those who want something a little sweeter, you can try the 25th anniversary cocktail, an alcoholic infusion made from Smirnoff vodka, blue carousel and grenadine lemonade.
