US Open Food Village
Chef David Burke serves up a flavorful Mexican street food menu. Menu items include carne asada beef tacos, pescado tacos, nachos; chips and guacamole.
Based on the name alone, many will gravitate to the chipotle chicken taco or carne asada beef taco. And that’s not a bad thing, since you can’t go wrong with either pick, especially with three tacos per order. But the chipotle chicken nachos – crispy tortilla chips with chicken, Mexican cheese sauce, pickled jalapeno, pico de gallo and crema fresca – are an underrated and overlooked option and the salads also come highly rated.
Traditional cuisine including chicken tikka wraps, kati rolls, and lamb handi.
At the very end of the Food Village closest to the new Louis Armstrong Stadium, Curry Kitchen has two huge things in its favor: great food and short lines. All four curry options, chicken tikka masala, lamb, tandoori chicken and vegetarian, are solid picks when it starts to get a little cooler in the evening. Get one with a naan bread and a mango lassi and you’ll be set for dinner.
Featuring lobster rolls, shrimp cocktail, poached salmon salad, and shrimp and lobster salad created by Chef David Burke.
Either option including lobster is the go-to pick at Fish Shack. The popular cold Maine lobster roll, which comes served on a New England bun with cole slaw, diced celery and lemon mayo, is the big draw, but the lobster and shrimp salad is an equally tasty pick. Come for the fish, stay for the veggies to offer color and crunch to make it a more healthy option.
The fried chicken sandwich shop returns this year with their signature fried chicken sandwich.
Two new options at Fuku will fight for your attention: the knockout sandwich – spicy fried chicken with seasoned cabbage – and the 110 Burger – a double-pattied bacon cheeseburger. Pro tip: add a spicy habanero thigh to your chicken sandwich for $7 and you’ll be free to roam around the grounds without ever going hungry.
Straight from Texas, Hill Country brings authentic barbeque to Flushing Meadows with their chopped brisket sandwich, pulled pork, and Texas tenders. Don't forget to try a homemade pie cup.
The chopped brisket sandwich is the pick of the plates at Hill Country. The pit-smoked meat is complemented with house pickles and sliced onion. Don’t leave the window without grabbing a pecan pie cup – for $6, it’s a steal for those with a sweeter tooth.
Returning for 2018, Korilla features rice bowls served with caramelized kimchi, beansprouts, fire roasted corn, garlic spinach and choice of bulgogi (marinated ribeye), braised ginger sesame chicken, slow roasted pork shoulder in gochugaru (Korean red pepper flakes), and organic tofu, with choice of Korilla’s signature sauces.
You can get the bulgogi – thinly sliced ribeye steak – spicy pork or roasted chicken thighs in either rice bowls or Korean tacos. The chicken is perfect if you’re looking for something hot. Get it in the bowl, it’s easier to eat with the sticky rice and it comes with homemade kimchi.
NYC’s comfort-food haven introduces several of its classic melted sandwiches and sides in Food Village.
The loaded tots – bacon, jalapenos and herbed parmesan – are a great choice if you’re looking for cheesy goodness but not looking for extra bread. But if you do go for a sandwich, the classic grilled cheese with American and New York cheddar is a simple take on a delicious lunch staple.
