Dodger Stadium Adds Horchata Ice Cream Churro Cakes To New Menu

Dodger Dogs and nachos have always been the basic go-to eats at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, but over the last few years, they’ve stepped up their game, hoping to change your perspective of stadium food.

Dodgers’ Executive Chef Ryan Evans is not holding back on the food selection this season, adding an array of new foods, including an Horchata ice cream-topped churro cake.

About 47 percent of Los Angeles is made up of Hispanics, or Latinos, and this sweet dessert shows that the Dodgers are in tune with their city.

The warm churro cake is placed inside a Dodger helmet, similar to how their nachos are set up, then topped with their horchata-infused ice cream. They finish it off with a caramel drizzle that tasted like cajeta, a thick Mexican syrup.

While we thought the churro cake was the highlight of the new food items, we put together the 11 other new items you have to try this season.

From street corn completely covered in crushed Hot Cheeto dust, to a spicy fried chicken breast sandwiched between a couple of Belgian waffles, the eats at the stadium could be just as fun as the game itself:

Spicy Chicken and Belgian Waffles

This sandwich debuted in the postseason last year, as the Dodgers fought for a World Series title and debuted a few new menu items for the occasion. With spicy chicken and candied bacon inside, this Belgian sammich has a mix of sweet and spicy, creating different sensations in your mouth.

King’s Hawaiian Lobster Roll

This guy was also introduced in the playoffs last year and was enough of a hit for them to add on the full-time menu this year. The lobster is made New England-style, meaning there’s a mayonnaise base mixed in. The fact that it’s served in a soft King’s Hawaiian roll is always a plus.

Carne Asada Torta

This one’s completely new, and the Dodgers really did the asada justice, being nicely seasoned and cooked to medium rare. The torta is definitely a welcoming addition to the menu.

Spicy Chicken Sandwich

These breaded chicken strips are tossed in Buffalo sauce, then joined by a jalapeno slaw, umami aioli, and pickles on Texas toast. If you’re the type of person who orders chicken strips wherever you go, here’s a spicy version for you.

Hot Cheet-O-Lote

The Flamin’ Hot Cheeto-covered street corn was obviously a hit when it debuted at the end of last season, and will now be a staple at the stadium. Covered with Hot Cheeto dust, Tajin powder, cotija cheese, and a dangerously delicious chili-lime mayo, this roasted elote is sure to be a 2018 favorite.

Orange Chicken

Shades of Panda Express, the orange chicken bowl is served with steamed broccoli and rice. That’s the only Chinese-inspired dish that debuts this year, but it’s a nice way to add variety.

Veggie Burger

It’s 2018, and the stadium world is incorporating more veggie options to its menu. The new veggie burger will consist of a pique pepper aioli, smoked gouda, Portobello mushroom, and arugula on a brioche bun.
__________

Pretzel Chicken Croissant

You can throw anything in a croissant and it automatically becomes 10 times better. Filled with chicken, sundried tomato, an herb aioli, Swiss cheese, and leaf lettuce, the pretzel croissant is a nice change of pace from the standard sandwich offerings.
__________

Nopal Torta

If you’re not a fan of meat, you can forego the asada torta and munch on a nopal torta. Nopales are a Mexican-style, fully cooked cactus, and the torta adds refried beans, jalapenos, cilantro, crema and pickled onions.
__________

Chicken Sausage Banh Mi

For a bit of Vietnamese flair, the Dodgers will be adding a banh mi. The chicken sausage is dressed with pickled carrots, onions, shredded cabbage, jalapeno, and cilantro.

Churro Cake

This is definitely going to be a crowd favorite. The warm cake served with cold horchata ice cream is everything you’d want from your ballpark food. (Note: The cake is bigger than the sample pictured above.)
