Watch: The Real Cost of Going to Coachella
1. Marlowe's Marlowe Burger
"I may be biased, but Jenn Puccio is a mastermind when it comes to the Marlowe Burger. It's perfectly juicy, every single time. And you can't beat the topping combo: caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, horseradish aïoli and, of course, bacon."
2. Rich Table's Porcini Doughnuts
"Believe the hype! Rich Table's perfect savory golden puffs are crisp on the outside, light and airy on the inside, and a true match made in heaven for the side of gooey raclette cheese that comes with them for dipping. Always dip!"
3. Tartine Manufactory's Morning Buns
"Imagine if a croissant and french toast had a baby, then you rolled that baby in cinnamon, sugar, and orange zest- that's Tartine's Morning Bun. They sell out at the bakery almost every day, so it's a real treat to be able to get them at Outside Lands. Bonus points if you can get one while it's still warm!"
4. Tacolicious' Baja-style Fish Tacos
"These are my idea of the quintessential fish taco. Fresh, locally-caught cod in a crunchy beer batter topped with shredded cabbage, homemade cumin-lime crema and a squeeze of lime, served on a good, quality tortilla. What more could you ask for?"
5. Guittard Chocolate's Liquid Chocolate Bars
"Guittard has converted a shipping container into an interactive chocolate workroom where people can learn about the chocolate-making process, and selling the end product in melted form. You can choose from a variety of different toppings to dress any cup of their warm, liquid chocolate... it's heaven!"
