I don’t remember ever seeing anyone posting about music festival food, but here goes…We attended our 5th Solid Sound this past weekend (2nd one for spring onion). We ate almost exclusively at Good To Go and Umami Bites.
Good To Go is from Burlington VT and their specialty is dumplings and man, are they good. No veggie ones so I “broke down” and got chicken with a killer spicy curry sauce. Once the 8 little dumplings were gone, there was jasmine rice at the bottom to soak up the sauce. Second time around, the dude manning the window made his own concoction spooned over the dumplings. I told him that whatever he created, he needed to put that into regular rotation.
Umami Bites does Asian tacos. Once again, I had a weak moment (not really) and got the bulgogi tacos. 2/order and perfectly constructed. A tad sweet but B and I quickly polished off 2 orders.
Slice of cheese pizza from Woodbelly that spring onion couldn’t finish had nice char and chew to the crust.
One lunch at Public in town hit the spot. B devoured his burger though it was cooked past medium. My falafel wrap was awesome - the great puffy pita bread made the sandwich…but so did the tahini sauce and pickled red onions. Really good French fries. Delightful and bone dry sparkling rose quenched my thirst nicely.
Got take-out spaghetti and meatballs from Grazie (next door to the refurbished Mohawk Tavern) one night as spring onion requested meatballs. A very nice waiter took care of our order…and talked to spring onion as he was getting rambunctious. A huge order of pasta and the little boss man loved the meatball. Very good marinara as B and I polished off the leftover spaghetti.
The current exhibits at Mass MoCA are stunning. Thanks as always to Wilco and North Adams.
