Coachella Arts and Music Festival had every kind of festival foodie covered. Whether you’re a cheese fanatic, meat lover or sugar-free vegan, Coachella had it all. Here’s the delicious dish on the festival eats that food-bombed your Insta feed and still has everyone raving.
1. Not Your Average Grilled Cheese
From gruyere to double cream brie, the Grilled Cheese Truck puts a new spin on the childhood classic in a big way. Think, gooey-mac ‘n’ cheese-between-toast big. The cheesy goodness doesn’t stop there — let’s talk dessert melts. Craving a nutella and marshmellow on sweet brioche bread? We bet you are now.
2. Bowl of Paella
What could make a day of rad beats and 90+ degree weather any hotter? Gerard’s Paella, a spicy Spanish dish cooked with rice, saffron, chicken and seafood in a humongous shallow pan. Full of mouth-watering flavor, this bite is worth the extra kick of heat.
3. Buffalo Mac ‘N’ Cheese
3. Vegan Jamaican Cuisine
Coachella did not skimp on vegan grub. With soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, nut-free, raw, organic and non-GMO options, Strictly Vegan was every plant-based festival rager’s food wonderland.
4. Reggae Wrap
Bursting with flavor and color, this crowd pleaser was complete with curried tofu, beans, avocado, veggies, and mango salsa wrapped up in a tortilla.
5. Pad Thai
Inspired by Bangkok-style street food, this Los Angeles vendor whipped out heaping bowls of Pad Thai guaranteed to fuel even the most enthusiastic of dance moves. A classic dish made all the better with an incredible soundtrack.
6. Ice Pops
Whether remedying a lost voice or trying to escape the desert heat, these popsicles were a hot commodity as Coachella’s tastiest accessory.
7. Chopped Fruit
Because is it really a festival without sliced watermelon?
6. Midnight Burger and Fries
Most would argue there’s nothing that satisfies a late night craving like a classic burger and fries run — some things just don’t change, whether you’re at a trendy festival or not.
