Summer wouldn’t be summer in Vancouver without a day at the PNE spent eating your way through the 4 main food groups. You know: deep fried delights, foot long hot dogs, bbq ribs, and mini donuts…

The Fair at the PNE is returning to Vancouver this Saturday, August 19 and running until Monday, September 4 for two weeks of games, rides, free concerts, and so much more. But, most importantly, the PNE is really pushing it in the food department this year. Take a look at some of the unique delicacies you’ll be able to enjoy this year at the PNE…

Oreo Rice Pudding at the PNE Vancouver

Oreo Rice Pudding

Oreos and rice pudding, together – for the first time! Available at Wok this Way, this Oreo and rice pudding remix is made with coconut milk to give it a sweet and tropical Asian twist. Then, Oreos are placed into the rice and mixed up to add an East meets West flavour…

weird food at the PNE 2017

Deep Fried Jello

In the category of why not?!, Funnel Cakes has added to their lineup of deep fried delicacies (which also includes deep fried oreos and deep fried jelly belly beans…) to include Jello. Yes, Jello. Although, thinking on this – isn’t it pretty similar to a jelly donut? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Deep Fried Pizza Bites

Located at the Crazy Italian, these pizza bites actually sound really delicious! Mozzarella, pizza sauce, and pepperoni are hand battered and deep fried until crispy and golden. Yum!

Waffle Taco

Your two favourite things, together! Thankfully, this waffle taco does not include Guacamole. Instead, it’s everyone’s favourite summer treat with a fun new twist. Not only is the ice cream rolled and mixed with your favourite toppings like Oreo, Skor, Strawberries, and many more… it’s also in a waffle cone shaped as a taco shell, to make the delicious and new WAFFLE TACO from Steve O’s Public House.
