The Electric Daisy Carnival is a mere week away, and now comes word that the whole dining scene was revamped for the EDM festival coming to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway June 20-22. Stuff your face with fare from local restaurants, food trucks and on the VIP dining deck.
First up, the food trucks. Look for Bake My Day Cupcakes, Can't Dutch This, Dragon Grille, Lobsta Trap, Oming's Kitchen, Sausagefest, Sin City Dogs, Sully's Taste of Chicago, The Hummus Factory, Truk-N-Yaki and Wa Da Pho spread all over the grounds of the festival. Local restaurants including Desnudo Tacos, District One, Nacho Daddy, Naked City Pizza Shop and SkinnyFats also plan to be on hand for the festival.
Now if you were lucky enough to get VIP tickets, head to the VIP Dining Deck for a seated multi-course dinner from Keven Lee, the executive chef of My World on a Plate Catering & Events as well as the former chef at Lutece. The three-course meal here includes a choice of an appetizer such as the Electric fruit bowl and Graffiti tacos. The main, and final, course will feature four options including a Kobe Kong massive meatball served with grilled garlic broccoli, white cheddar, barley and polenta cake that can be swapped out with tofu as a vegan option, Furamaki ahi tuna, or a turkey burger on a brioche bun.
Reservations are available in two-hour time slots between 8 p.m. and 4 a.m. Book up to eight guest per table for $75 each here.
Also on hand, the VIP Café with dishes from local food trucks Dragon Grille, Quality Food Service and That's Amore as well as tastes from Lee. The menu here includes beef brisket, Asian-marinated chicken, pork dumplings, meatball sandwiches, sausage and pepper sandwiches, carne asada fries and the PLUR smoothie that mixes pineapple, lemonade, ume plum and raspberry from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. and will allow guests to choose a specially curated meal from one of the gourmet food tucks. This will cost you $60 but you can stop here all three days for one meal.
