Although the Los Angeles Dodgers season 2022 officially started last week, Thursday’s home opener against the Cincinnati Reds will still feel like the actual kickoff for LA baseball. This four-game series marks 60 years of baseball in Elysian Park plus the 75th anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s MLB debut and comes just two years away from the Dodgers’ historic World Series victory in 2020. This year, one big question looms above all else. . others in the minds of many fans: What’s good to eat at Dodger Stadium?
Dodger Stadium boasts plenty of fan-food favorites to choose from, such as the beloved traditional or plant-based Dodger Dog, garlic fries, the $ 21 michelada or nachos in a mini baseball hat. Fans (who follow a few key rules) can even bring food from outside, either packed at home or picked up from local restaurants nearby. During the 2022 season – depending on the section – some new items are available for fans sporting Dodger blue or other team equipment; let’s dig in.
New dogs at field level, reserve level and LA at the tire circle
Dodger Dogs are easy to find during a game, but there is more than just the usual hot dog to try this year. In 2022, fans can score a Louisiana hot link, bratwurst, Italian sausage or a plant-based bratwurst option for those who avoid meat.
Potato and tequila time at reserve level
The Twisted Tatoes Stand at the reserve level has everything there is to spud, including spiral potatoes seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, mesquite, Tajín, cotija cheese and chili lime aioli. There is also a grilled potato with “burnt ends” cut into barbecue seasoning, chipotle aioli and pickled red onions. Also at the reserve level is Herradura “Dodgerita”, one of the new cocktails in section 11.
Aguas frescas and taquitos at field level Hornitos Cantina, centerfield and LA Taqueria at reserve level
Dodgers are inextricably linked to LA’s Mexican-American culture and vice versa. It’s a long and complex relationship, but impossible to miss with 1970s Fernandomania, fans with blue and white sombreros or the loving local brand “Los Doyers”. Traditional aguas frescas – mixed fruit drinks with water, lime juice and sweetener – are available this season at Hornitos Cantina / field level, midfield and reserve level LA Taqueria. Flavors range from mango to horchata, strawberry kiwi or a pineapple agua fresca with a tamarindo edge.
Try the newly added taqueria plate at Hornitos Cantina at field level or LA Taqueria at reserve level. It’s a great option with chicken taquitos, jalapeño poppers and cheese quesadilla. The right field Hornitos Cantina also has new tequila cocktails on the deck for 2022.
Dessert on the court, reserve and lodge levels
In 2021, Dunkin ‘Donuts signed a multi-year deal designating the chain as Dodger’s official donut and coffee place. For 2022, funnel fries sprinkled with powdered sugar and chocolate or raspberry syrup topping are available at the Dunkin ‘stand.
Not to be outdone by the salty options, fans can also find dessert nachos, with tortilla chips replaced in favor of fried dough fritters buñuelos topped with soft-serve ice cream, strawberries and chocolate sauce. Try these at Dunkin ‘Stand at field level or Sweet Spot at lodge level.
Dodgers Deli at Lodge Level
Sandwich manages the day at the Lodge-level Dodgers Deli with the addition of a caprese sandwich with mozzarella, basil, tomato with balsamic glaze on French bread, a cold cuts sub or roast beef dip sandwich.
Group eating and drinking
Those who enjoy the stunning views at the newly renovated stadium club level can also take advantage of the group package, which includes free food and alcohol from match to match, with menus rotating throughout the season.
Nashville tenders, Korean short rib bowls and a grill plate
Also new for 2022, the field-level Sweet Chick stand offers Nashville-style chicken tenderloin with french fries. The field level is where the Korean specialist in bowls with short ribs Base Bowls is located. If you’re near the Think Blue Barbecue at Centerfield Pavilion, there’s a new combo dish with roasted ducks, cornbread, pulled pork and coleslaw with smoked picante.
CPK throughout the stadium
California Pizza Kitchen introduces its mushroom pepperoni sausage pizza with crimini mushrooms, pepperoni, spicy Italian sausage, basil, mozzarella and wild Greek oregano this season, which is available throughout the stadium.
