Sports fans will have a lot more outrageous food options to choose from at BC Place.
How about butter chicken, Cheetos-dust-topped macaroni and cheese, or the Outrageous Hamburger, with hot dogs and chicken strips on top of the beef?
“Fans can look forward to enjoying some of the most creative and delicious menu items when they come to BC Place - options that can’t be found at any other venue in North America” said general manager Patricia Jelinski in a news release.
Plenty of options for vegans, vegetarians and gluten-free eaters. You can even order without having to leave the stands, with “in-seat ordering technology.”
Marc Dos Santos, the new head coach for the Vancouver Whitecaps, was asked what was his favourite of the new options at a media event on Friday.
He said the Outrageous Hamburger, but that “it is the one I can’t have.”
Here are some of the highlights available starting Saturday, for the Whitecaps first home against Minnesota United:
The Outrageous Burger
The largest of the new delicacies, the Outrageous Burger features three house-made beef patties, hot dog, three chicken strips, six strips of bacon, three cheddar cheese slices, fries and a house recipe sauce.
