Best Foodie Option: Kogi Food Truck
Music isn't the only thing to be psyched about at Coachella. Unlike many big festivals — where funnel cake is often the most gourmet dining option available — Coachella has turned its V.I.P. area into a foodie paradise, with booths representing acclaimed Los Angeles eateries like Alma, Eveleigh, Umami Burger, Orsa & Winston and Baco Mercat. Hoi polloi ticket holders, however, aren't shorted. This year, Coachella created a new food court area accessible to all called "The Terrace," which featured Salt & Straw's artisanal ice cream, a Stumptown Coffee bar, gourmet Thai flavors via Night + Market and Beer Belly's high-end, artery-clogging comfort food. The continual culinary star, however, remains the legendary Kogi food truck, with its filling and flavorful Mexican-Korean fusion (insider tip: get the kimchi upgrade for your short-rib burrito).
