For a food lover, going to the fair can be a blast. Everything’s either deep-fried or wrapped in bacon. However, eating all that fried stuff really takes a toll on your body. That’s why we were delighted to discover the best tasting thing at this year’s LA County Fair was, in fact, a vegan dish.
This year, a booth called Plant Food For People shocked us with one of their dishes: a carnitas-style taco made with shredded jackfruit. It was arguably the tastiest dish there.
We tried a bite and honestly could not tell the difference between the taco and its porky counterpart. The shredded jackfruit are specially seasoned and thrown on the grill. Afterwards, the jackfruit is dressed up with a vegan Chipotle mayonnaise and coleslaw.
After ingesting a ton of fried foods on premises, this was a welcome surprise.
Owners Jeremy and Genise Castaneda said that they plan on opening a stand in Venice sometime in the near future. For now, you can find them slanging these delectable vegan jackfruit tacos at this year’s LA County Fair.
