Minute Maid Park Baja Fish Tacos - Recipes

Super tiny and margaritas were ok. Chips and salsa we're good. Queso was good. Avocado tacos had fried avocado in them. I didn't eat them. They were not good.

I often stop here on my way home to pick up queso and chips. Very friendly staff and great queso. The best part, when you ask for extra chips, they always include them at no additional charge.

Ok, so I haven’t been in to this “original brick & mortar location” in yeeeaaars! But passing by while in town on biz, I couldn’t resist! Pulling in to the parking spot, I’m hoping the fish taco are still exactly the same as when they opened this spot a gagillion (or so it seems) years ago. (Like, how old was I when they opened? I either don’t remember or don’t want to say . or both!) Nonetheless, I walked in, ordered my 2 Fish Tacos, yes, fried not grilled, small queso, and of course something that didn’t exist back then, a skinny margarita, with salt!

Waiting at a little table in the corner for my order. Here is comes. Bam! Ok so it looks the same! Yay! Sink my pearly whites in. Bam!

Yessssss! Exactly the same way I remember. Yaaaay!

This is by far one of the best hole in the wall joints inside the loop. The food is great, friendly service, and a pet friendly patio. If you are in the area needing a bite, drink, or both. this is the place!

Play Ball

There&rsquos nothing wrong with peanuts and Cracker Jack, but ballparks around the country are stepping up their concession game, serving local favorites and creative spins on classics. We&rsquove gone coast to coast, rounding up great choices you could eat alongside new favorites you definitely should eat at the stadiums. Play ball &mdash and eat well.

Angel Stadium (Los Angeles Angels)

You could eat: The stadium serves LA-approved healthy acai bowls, as well as the cleverly named Buffalo-style Angel Wings.

You should eat: A ballpark outpost of local taqueria Chronic Tacos pays tribute to Southern California&rsquos Mexican food scene. Though the line can get long, the reward is two corn tortillas with your choice of filling (choose the marinated, grilled carne asada), topped with cheese, onions, cilantro, lime, crema and salsa. There's also a choose-your-own tostada bowl.

AT&T Park (San Francisco Giants)

You could eat: An on-site garden &mdash how very Northern Californian &mdash yields produce for dishes at Garden Table and Hearth Table, including smoothies and salads.

You should eat: Head to the Centerfield Wharf, in the Scoreboard Plaza for a sandwich that combines several San Francisco influences. The Crazy Crab presses creamy Dungeness Crab between slices of buttery, grilled sourdough with slices of tomato.

Busch Stadium (St. Louis Cardinals)

You could eat: There's plenty to try in St. Louis, including several variations on nachos and tater tot-based nachos.

You should eat: St. Louis residents are rightfully obsessed with Gioia's &mdash it even topped the list of our iconic Missouri foods. The deli has been around since 1918, winning countless awards and accolades since then. Grab a taste at Busch Stadium, where the Gioia's Hot Salami Sandwich stands in for any standard hot dog. The salami's stacked on Italian bread with pepperjack cheese, diced onions, sliced pepperoncini and deli mustard. Grab one at the Gioia's Deli stand by section 151.

Chase Field (Arizona Diamondbacks)

You could eat: Game Seven Grill is a wing-lover's destination, with spicy wings made with ghost peppers. They're as intense as they sound, and a great way to break a sweat in the desert heat.

You should eat: No strangers to good Mexican food, Arizonans sneak Southwestern accents into plenty of dishes at Chase Field, including the new Asada Dog. A locally made 18-inch hot dog is tucked into a telera roll - similar to a French roll - with fries, queso blanco, salsa, guacamole and carne asada for double meatiness.

Citi Field (New York Mets)

You could eat: There&rsquos an outpost of Shake Shack, with predictably great burgers, but the lengthy lines mean missing at least an inning. For beer fans, 2018 marks the opening of the Mikkeller's brewery and restaurant within the stadium. There are 60 beers on tap, along with a menu that includes a falafel, bulgogi fries and even a kale-quinoa salad.

You should eat: "Magician of Meat" Pat LaFrieda is making magic here, with a one-dish kiosk selling filet mignon sandwiches. Order one and you&rsquoll get chopped, fresh-off-the-griddle Black Angus beef with Monterey Jack cheese and sauteed Vidalia onions, served au jus on a toasted local baguette.

Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia Phillies)

You could eat: There are plenty of odes to the cheesesteak at the Phillies' park, including sandwiches at Campo's and Tony Luke's, and a cheesesteak-nacho hybrid. The Schmitter, a trademarked grilled steak-salami-onion sandwich from McNally&rsquos Tavern in Chestnut Hill, has its own dedicated stand, too (section 141).

You should eat: Nab a taste of one of the city&rsquos best sandwiches with the Federal Fried Chicken Sandwich, made by Federal Donuts (section 140). The boneless breast is tangy from buttermilk ranch seasoning, and is topped with American cheese, a pickle and Sriracha, all on a potato roll.

Photo courtesy of Federal Donuts

Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers)

You could eat: Detroit's famous for its puffy pizzas, and Comerica Park is home to several locations of Little Caesars, for that cheesy fix.

You should eat: The Ode to Detroit Dog. There's a lot of meat going on with this dog, which smothers a classic ballpark frank in brisket chili, topped with fiery habanero queso under a cascade of scallions.

Coors Field (Colorado Rockies)

You could eat: Rocky mountain oysters. The deep-fried bull jewels are a rite of passage, and a big draw at the stadium.

You should eat: Wazee Market sandwiches. Named for a bygone Denver market, the Italian-style sandwich shop makes pizzas, gelato and panini, as well as hearty sandwiches like the Rockies Corned Beef Sandwich, topped with onion rings, slaw and a blanked of melted Swiss cheese, making it the perfect pairing for some local craft beer.

Photo courtesy of Aramark

Dodger Stadium (Los Angeles Dodgers)

You could eat: Baseball means hot dogs, and no hot dog is quite as legendary as a Dodger Dog, preferably grilled and topped with diced onions.

You should eat: It&rsquos hard to justify vegetables at a ballpark, but elote &mdash Mexican-style grilled corn &mdash is perfect on a hot summer day. Slicked with mayonnaise, dusted with Mexican cheese and spiced with chile powder, the corn (available at Think Blue BBQ) is perfect for gnawing beside a backdrop of palm trees. Even better, step up the spice with the Cheeto-lote, dusted with Flamin' Hot Cheetos, cotija cheese & tajin seasoning, available at Elysian Park Grill.

Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox)

You could eat: The park&rsquos namesake Fenway Franks sizzle on Yawkey Way.

You should eat: Those with access to the EMC level should partake in the EMC Club, whose nightly changing menu uses ingredients grown in the rooftop garden. Beyond the standard Fenway Franks and burgers, New England classics are served throughout the stadium. Legendary Boston Globe columnist Dan Shaughnessy weighed in: "I&rsquom partial to the lobster roll," he said, also citing sliders and a wedge salad. The mayo-slicked rolls are available on the Concourse Level at Home Plate Marche and at the EMC Club.

Globe Life Park in Arlington (Texas Rangers)

You could eat: There's plenty of Tex-Mex at Global Life Park, including brisket-topped nachos and several sausage creations.

You should eat: For a strangely appealing mash-up of tangy, fried and meaty, go for the Dilly Dog, which features a jumbo hot dog stuffed into a hollowed dill pickle - from locally beloved Best Maid - all battered and fried.

Great American Ball Park (Cincinnati Reds)

You could eat: The Great American Ball Park food scene has gotten into the social media frenzy, including cotton candy clouds with a waffle cone wrapped in cotton candy and filled with soft serve (under a cascade of sprinkles).

You should eat: Cincinnati's beloved Queen City Sausage makes a few sausages specifically for the stadium. Try some of meaty goodness in the Fried Garlic Bologna sandwich, served on a massive bun with the usual toppings, including spicy mustard. Grab one inside the Scout's Club.

Guaranteed Rate Field (Chicago White Sox)

You could eat: The Irish Nacho Helmet piles fries into a little green souvenir vessel with cheese, bacon and sour cream, a nod to Chicago&rsquos Irish heritage.

You should eat: The Bases Loaded Baked Potato, an even better variation on the theme, has become a fan favorite, packed with beef barbacoa, cheddar, broccoli and chives. Anyone lucky enough to land box seats should follow up with something from the legendary dessert cart.

Photo courtesy of Chicago White Sox

Kauffman Stadium (Royals)

You could eat: There&rsquos a healthy helping of barbecue inside Kansas City&rsquos ballpark, including various takes on pulled pork, but the burnt end cheesesteak is the winner. The sauce-slathered combo, available at Farmland Grill (section 239), is smoky, meaty and a great local take on a game-day sandwich.

You should eat: Is it a corn dog? A deep-fried German sausage? Boulevard Grill&rsquos bacon-wrapped, tempura-battered footlong dog (section 206) defies all categorization. It&rsquos sweet and spicy, thanks to its chipotle ketchup and slightly sweet cabbage slaw, and packed into a soft pretzel bun that can barely contain the big-league flavor.

Photo courtesy of Aramark

Marlins Park (Florida Marlins)

You could eat: When in Miami, tuck into a Cubano. The Marlins&rsquo version doesn't skimp this griddled rendition is packed with thin-sliced ham, cheese and pickles.

You should eat: Get a little salsa flavor into your baseball concessions with the Miami Mex Taco Dog. The spicy love child of a taco and hot dog, this footlong frank packs in flavor, with braised chili con carne, cheese, slaw, charred-jalapeno-lime aioli and fresh salsa, all wrapped in a flour tortilla.

Miller Park (Milwaukee Brewers)

You could eat: When in the cheese capital of the country, go for fried cheese curds (at Hot Cheese). They&rsquore a very addictive alternative to peanuts, and good to snack on after a grill-out at the park&rsquos epic tailgates. Throughout the park, concessions can read like a state fair showcase, with options like the Ham-Stuffed-Into-A-Doughnut Sandwich (at Smoke Shack) or Bacon on a Stick (at Specialty Sausages).

You should eat: Anyone not hungry by the seventh-inning stretch will be swayed by the Klement&rsquos Sausage Race. Make a dash from there to the brand&rsquos grill stand for the hefty Wisconsin Beer Brat, a step up from a standard hot dog and the perfect pairing for brews from the entire Miller portfolio.

Minute Maid Park (Houston Astros)

You could eat: Texas barbecue abounds at the Astros&rsquo home stadium. Grab a brisket-loaded baked potato from Texas Smoke or pulled-pork sliders from Little Bigs. On the Club Level, The Butcher serves racks of barbecued ribs.

You should eat: Tex-Mex makes a mighty alternative to standard burgers and dogs. The Chipotle Pescado, available from Street Eats (sections 126 and 409), has coffee-rubbed salmon wrapped in two layers of corn tortillas, all topped with mango-jalapeno ranch dressing and squiggles of spicy aioli.

Photo courtesy of Aramark

Nationals Park (Washington Nationals)

You could eat: Starting in 2018, Nathan's is the official hot dog of Nationals Park. Find the classic and foot-long along with an even larger jumbo dog at concessions stands throughout the stadium. There's also a snappy corn dog, wrapped in a golden coating of batter that's ideal for mindless eating during riveting plays.

You should eat: Washington, D.C. knows quite a bit about good hot dogs and sausages &mdash one of the most-beloved foods is the half-smoke, a spiced take on the hot dog, best served smothered in chili with cheese and onions. Grab one from the Ben's Chili Bowl counter at the park.

Petco Park (San Diego Padres)

You could eat: Sure, there are solid, well-battered fish tacos at this Downtown San Diego stadium &ndash and they&rsquore great.

You should eat: The best food for a summer evening at the park is a perfectly greasy California-style burger. Hodad&rsquos, a favorite of Guy Fieri, has an outpost here in a converted trailer by the outfield. A cheeseburger will get you a puffy sesame-seed-topped bun with a well-griddled patty, a slick of cheddar, shredded iceberg, dill pickles and onion. It&rsquos perfect to pair with the park's unrivaled list of microbrews from Stone, Ballast Point, Mission and beyond.

PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirates)

You could eat: PNC Park has an outpost of superstar sandwich shop Primanti Bros., with a scaled-back version of the full menu, including cheese fries and capicola with cheese.

You should eat: Wings, and lots of them. The Pirates borrow a page from the tailgating playbook with an outpost of Quaker Steak & Lube, home to the city&rsquos best wings, with more than two dozen sauces.

Suntrust Park (Atlanta Braves)

You could eat: Open since 2017, the Braves' stadium has plenty of great food, including hot dogs and sausages from Hugh Acheson, and a Waffle House, with waffles, hashbrowns and chili.

You should eat: For name and creativity alone, try the Spec-Tater, a potato stuffed with a jalapeno-cheddar sausage that's wrapped in bacon and, in true Atlanta fashion, slow-smoked. It's topped with cheese, sour cream, scallions and more chiles.

Target Field (Minnesota Twins)

You could eat: Minnesota is renowned for its meaty and cheesy dishes, which are plentiful at Target Field. Opt for a bowl of cheese curds or pretzels with beer cheese. To reverse the meat mania, try a vegan sausage from the Herbivorous Butcher.

You should eat: Andrew Zimmern's AZ Canteen reinvents classic stadium fare with globally inspired flavors, including a kimchi-topped sandwich and a za'atar-spiced chicken skewer, served wtih flatbread or a rice bowl, with roasted eggplant, tomato, cucumber and herbed yogurt.

Tropicana Field (Tampa Bay Rays)

You could eat: Florida is renowned for its seafood, and Tropicana Field is no exception. The Fish Shack offers fried seafood baskets and sandwiches, with fries.

You should eat: The stadium is rife with Cuban-influenced concessions. Try a creative mash-up on a classic Cubano with the Reuben Cuban, which combines pork, pickles, pastrami and hot dog for a pressed meat grand slam. Nab one at Pressed, which has two locations in the stadium.

Wrigley Field (Chicago Cubs)

You could eat: Giordano&rsquos is the official pizza slinger at Chicago&rsquos legendary park, serving 6-inch personal deep-dish pies that are an excellent &mdash if messy &mdash taste of the city.

You should eat: Wrigley has excellent hot dogs, including Chicago-style dogs and fan favorite Vienna Smokies, but the stadium's biggest draw may be the Hot Doug&rsquos options, available in the bleachers. Go for the Barry Foote, a corned-beef sausage with Swiss cheese, Louie dressing and sauerkraut, ideally paired with Wrigley&rsquos beloved Old Style beer.

Photo courtesy of Levy Restaurants

Yankee Stadium (New York Yankees)

You could eat: Nolita favorite Parm operates a stadium outpost serving its namesake sandwiches, like the chicken and meatball Parms. They&rsquore gooey, tangy and everything a hero should be.

You should eat: New York butcher Lobel's operates two carving stations, serving sliced-to-order steak sandwiches packed with medium-rare beef rich with its own juices on a fluffy bun. They&rsquore on the extravagant side at $15, but they&rsquore impossibly tender, well-seasoned and so much better than the usual ballpark burgers.

Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup beer
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced capers
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 quart oil for frying
  • 1 pound cod fillets, cut into 2 to 3 ounce portions
  • 1 (12 ounce) package corn tortillas
  • ½ medium head cabbage, finely shredded

To make beer batter: In a large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt. Blend egg and beer, then quickly stir into the flour mixture (don't worry about a few lumps).

To make white sauce: In a medium bowl, mix together yogurt and mayonnaise. Gradually stir in fresh lime juice until consistency is slightly runny. Season with jalapeno, capers, oregano, cumin, dill, and cayenne.

Heat oil in deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Dust fish pieces lightly with flour. Dip into beer batter, and fry until crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Lightly fry tortillas not too crisp. To serve, place fried fish in a tortilla, and top with shredded cabbage, and white sauce.

What to Eat at Minute Maid Park, Home of the Astros

Minute Maid Park, home of the Astros, is about to be packed with fans, not only because today is the first day of the 2012 baseball season, but because there's lots of fun changes happening this year.

If you must eat in Minute Maid Park, here's where you should go.

Minute Maid Park's Five Standouts

El Real Tex-Mex: Astros and fajitas go together like NASA and shuttle launches. Well, at least since cheflebrity Bryan Caswell's old school Tex-Mex cafe opened up concessions in Minute Maid. They're cooked and carved to order. [Section 132]
Prince's Hamburgers: Prince's is a hamburger institution and they've got an outpost in the stadium with burgers (duh) and their signature milkshakes. It's an American trifecta. [Section 134, 418]
Larry's Big Bamboo: Anything that's a favorite of former Astros manager Larry Dierker must be good, right? Try the fish tacos or the wings. Bonus points for having the coolest name in the park. [Section 118]
Little Bigs: Look, it's more Bryan Caswell-inspired fare, but this time it's tiny burgers, also known as sliders with beef or pork. He's taking over Minute Maid Park one booth at a time. [Section 110]
FiveSeven Grill: More substantial dishes like ribeye steaks, roasted chicken and fish, desserts and "premium cocktails." There's also a pool table and the name is a reference to two Astros greats, Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell. [Section 156]

Honorable Mentions

Main Concourse

Astros Sizzling Extreme Grill: Exactly what it sounds like, depending on your definition of "extreme." Chicago, Cincinnati, Coney Island, Georgia (?) and New York style dogs. [Sections 125, 154]
Goya Latin Cafe: Build your own burritos - check. Grande nachos - check. 18 oz. margaritas - check. [Section 119]
Dining Car Grill: They've got veggie hot dogs for those who need one and all the rest of the regular baseball stadium-y treats like peanuts, bratwurst and the ubiquitous French fries in a cup. [Section 125]
Green Fork: Made to order salads. Like, for real. [Section 116]

Club Level

Sam's Bistro: Sandwiches, baked potatoes and even salads. The menu changes frequently as do their entree selections. [Section: 224]
Dining Car Grill: Same as the one on the Main Concourse, just the club level version. [Section 232]

Upper Concourse

Blue Bell Ice Cream Parlor: Homemade vanilla. No need to say more. [Section 423]
Maverick Smokehouse: Texas BBQ, well, Texas BBQ made in a stadium kitchen, so take it as it is. Brisket, loaded baked potatoes, chopped beef sandwiches, smoked turkey. [Section 409]

Chicken & Waffle On A Stick with a maple Sriracha drizzle, served with a broccoli and cabbage slaw (Toronto Blue Jays, Rogers Centre, Toronto Street Eats, Section 134)

Beer, soda and hot dogs will always bat 1-2-3 in popularity, but Minute Maid Park will have a dozen new menu items for the 2016 Astros season. The home opener is Monday night against Kansas City, which gave the Astros a Royals pain in the playoffs last year.

Aramark, which operates the food concessions for the Astros, invited the media and about 75 fans to taste-test some of the new items Thursday.

Take a look through the gallery above for a look at some of the tasty new treats.

Sweet Potato Waffle Chicken Sandwich: Homemade waffles with sweet potato puree in the batter, grilled chicken breast, Greek yogurt, baby spinach and sliced tomatoes.

Irish Nachos: Kettle chips smothered in jalapeno queso, picadillo ground beef and assorted nacho toppings.

Hand Dipped Corn Dogs: Freshly deep-fried. No more heated-up, store-bought frozen corn dogs.

Loop Artisan Pretzel: My favorite in the bunch. Loved the German-style pretzel with lager mustard dipping sauce. That'll clear your sinuses. Also available with 3 cheese sauce.

Andrew Zimmern, star of "Bizarre Foods" on the Travel Channel, will have a concession booth this year at the ballpark. He will introduce four items throughout the season. Leading off: Korean Fried Pork Belly Sandwich. It's a battered and deep-fried slice of heaven, I mean pork belly, with grilled pineapple, gochujang sauce and chili lime salt on a toasted potato bun. Nothing says Americana and baseball like grilled pineapple and gochujang sauce.

Nolan Ryan Beef will supply the hot dogs again, adding a Jalapeno Cheese Dog and Steak Fingers to the roster.

Last year's most successful new item, the Chicken Waffle Cone, will be back.

"We sold more Chicken Waffle Cones on opening day than I thought we'd sell all year," said Mat Drain, the Pharoah of Pheasant for Aramark.

Recipe: Thai-One-On Fish Tacos with Creamy Peanut Sauce

Prepare the peanut sauce and the slaw ahead of time, so all you need do at serving time is to quickly fry the fish and warm the tortillas.

Juice of 4 to 6 key limes

½ cup organic creamy peanut butter

1 teaspoon chile-garlic sauce

2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger

3 tablespoons agave nectar

¼ head green cabbage, slivered

¼ head red cabbage, slivered

1 jalapeño, seeded and slivered

½ cup slivered daikon radish

10 to 12 basil leaves, rolled together and cut into chiffonade (Thai basil preferred)

2 tablespoons agave nectar

2 pounds speckled trout (or other mild, flaky white fish) fillets, cut into ¾-inch-thick strips

2 cups organic rice flour

1½ cups sparkling water (I like Topo Chico)

1½ cups panko-style bread crumbs

8 fresh corn tortillas, warmed

½ cup salted peanuts, chopped

Instructions: Prepare the creamy peanut sauce: In a small mixing bowl, whisk all the ingredients together with 1 tablespoon warm water and transfer to a small serving bowl.

Prepare the Thai slaw: Using clean hands, toss all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving time.

Prepare the fish: Rinse the fillets and pat them dry with paper towels. Sprinkle 1 cup of the rice flour in a shallow dish. Heat the peanut oil in a deep-fat fryer to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 cup rice flour, the salt and the sparkling water.

Pour the bread crumbs into a pie pan or shallow dish. Dredge the fish strips in the rice flour, dip them in the tempura batter to coat, dredge them in panko crumbs and fry in the hot oil for 3 to 5 minutes.

To serve, place several strips of the fried fish in a warm tortilla, top with a spoonful or more of slaw, drizzle with peanut sauce and sprinkle with peanuts.

The Best Ballpark Food in the U.S.

Tri-Tip Sandwich
Raley Field, Sacramento
At Raley Field, fans of the minor-league River Cats are loyal to the tri-tip sandwich. Marinated beef is slow-cooked on-site to medium rare, hand-carved, and piled onto a French roll with a smear of horseradish aioli.

Dungeness Crab Sandwich
AT&T Park, San Francisco
The folks at Crazy Crab'z lightly dress fresh local crab with mayo, pile it onto classic San Francisco sourdough, and serve it in full view of the bay across from Scoreboard Plaza.

Fish Tacos
Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles
Beer is a popular option at Dodger Stadium, and once your whistle is wet, try Camacho's beer-battered fish tacos served up with corn tortillas, pico de gallo, chili lime crema, and cilantro slaw.

Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia
The question of which of the four Phillies aces is actually king will be resolved long before this ballpark debate ever is: Tony Luke's or Rick's? At the Bank, both purveyors pile the evidence high on fresh rolls. Confession: We're Team Tony.

Cheese Curds
Miller Park, Milwaukee
Sure, you want brats and brews in the ballpark famous for them. But for a true taste of Wisconsin, bite into these fried chunks of mild cheese.

Turkey Leg
Target Field, Minneapolis
Baseball doesn't have the bone-crushing cachet of football. Gain some caveman cred by brandishing a smoked, grilled, Target Field turkey leg&mdashinstead of, say, a nest of cotton candy.

Elote Corn
U.S. Cellular Field, Chicago
South Side Chicago fans go south of the border by pairing their dogs with a side of Mexican-style elote, corn tossed with butter, lime, chili powder, mayo, and cheese.

Pulled Pork Sandwich
Citi Field, Queens, NY
The succulent pulled pork sandwich from Blue Smoke's Danny Meyer will have you back in your seat before first pitch&mdashunlike the folks in line for his more famous Shake Shack burgers.

Pickle Dog
Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park, Charleston, SC
At Charleston RiverDogs games, you can stick to a no-carb diet with a no-bun dog. Vendors hollow out a huge dill pickle and top it with a grilled hot dog and a pile of coleslaw.

Minute Maid Park, Houston
Bryan Caswell, a onetime Next Iron Chef contender, will bring his chicken and beef fajitas to Houston's ballpark this season. Look for his El Real Tex-Mex (which shares its name with the restaurant he's opening downtown).

The Ichiroll
Safeco Field, Seattle
Sushi at a ballpark? Sounds suspect, but Ichiro Suzuki's fans swear by the Ichiroll, a spicy tuna roll with daikon radish sprouts and black sesame seeds.
