Some people historically come to the Orange County Fair in Costa Mesa to taste the newest deep-fried cuisine. This year was no exception as thousands crowded the fairgrounds on Saturday, searching for the latest culinary offerings.
New to the fair is the "Bacon A-Fair" stand, which stands on the site of the former the Deep Fried Butter Stand. The re imagined stand now attracts foodies and fair goers alike who come for their favorite bacon-inspired dishes.
In addition to crowd favorites like chocolate covered bacon, owners Mike and Brittney Peterson have added more unique items to their menu.
First off, their deep-fried, beer-battered, bacon-wrapped hot dog comes in regular and jumbo sizes. The dish is 100% beef, beer-battered, wrapped in bacon, deep fried, and then served with nacho cheese sauce.
"I thought it was going to be a lot greasier, but it's not. It's really good," Kimberly Peterson, manager of the Bacon A-Fair stand said. "I was surprised."
