1) The Carpe Diem, The Rabbit Hole, International Bazaar

This looks like the sundae of our dreams. A buttermilk-miso waffle cone filled with balsamic-roasted strawberry compote, vanilla ice cream, graham cracker crumble, and fresh strawberry. (Aug. 25-Aug. 30 only)

2) Paneer On A Spear, Hot Indian Foods, International Bazaar

You can’t go to the Fair and not eat deep-fried cheese, but Hot Indian’s paneer might make you skip the curds. It’s deep-fried Indian-seasoned paneer cheese coated with a local craft beer batter and served with tomato garlic chutney. (Aug. 31-Sept. 5 only)

3) Spicy Pork Bowl, The Blue Barn, West End Market

The Blue Barn has gained a stellar reputation in their first couple years vending at the Fair. This year, their new offering is a mix of adobo pulled pork, rice, black beans, spinach, charred salsa and fried onion strings.
