The 6 Best Things We Tasted at Outside LandsBy Zagat Staff | August 11, 2014 By Zagat Staff | August 11, 2014
Outside Lands 2014 is on the books. Over the past three days, we sampled from over 200 foods, dozens of Wine Lands' stellar wines, Beer Lands' beers and cocktails from numerous local bars in Golden Gate Park. This year also marked the test drive of GastroMagic, an "interactive culinary stage," where bands and food-industry types teamed up for various forms of entertainment. We'd love to see this stage return next year (pictured above and more highlights in the slide show).
On the food front, some bites stayed consistent, like Rich Table's dreamy porcini donuts. Others went downhill, like Azalina's nachos, sadly served over stale chips, and Namu's awfully bland quesadillas, made from grocery-store tortillas, melted cheese and minimal "salsa" on top. On a brighter note, here are some highlights from the weekend that was.
