not taipei/california: OC County Fair 2010
For me, summertime in Southern California means time to go to the OC Fair for Mexican funnel cake! Ever since I tried the sugary, crispy confection last year, I had been counting down the days until I returned this summer and could get my hands on it.
It's always fun to see the dizzying array of food stands available- from the standard corn dogs to chicken and waffles to grilled corn.
It's amusing to see the cupcake trend has even made its way here.
I didn't have the urge to try all the deep fried craziness like the zucchini weenie or the deep fried smores, since I had sampled it last year. So instead I settled on some taquitos from Noel's since I spotted an open table nearby.
I was happy to see it slathered in guacamole.
I also tried corn dogs from a couple of stands and if I came back next year, I'd pick Hot Dog on a Stick over the others.
I was waiting for some friends to come to share the Mexican funnel cake with them, but they bailed last minute. It comes in a jumbo size only, so I wasn't able to finish it and it became a sugar overload by the fifth bite or so.
But if you're craving some deep fried butter (SHUDDER!) or chocolate covered bacon, this is your one stop shop to make sure to hit up- but only until August 15th!
