Whether or not you can attend Taste of Fort Collins, we’ve got food and drinks you can try this weekend and beyond.
Take your pick from these hearty, spicy or light options, which you’ll find throughout the rest of Taste of Fort Collins and northern Colorado after the festival ends.
Whiskey BBQ Burger
Where: Fork Yeah food truck
Fancy a hearty bite? Try this whiskey BBQ burger from Fork Yeah Food Truck from Northern Colorado. Topped with pepper jack cheese, mixed greens and – the star of the show – local whiskey barbecue sauce. Fork Yeah is a regular at Fort Collins breweries and can often be found at the Tuesday night FoCo Food Truck gathering in City Park.
Iced chai latte
Where: Ethiopian Cafe Konjo, 3701 Le Fever Drive
Need a helping hand on a hot summer day? Try an iced chai latte or spiced iced coffee at Konjo Ethiopian Coffee, which is a regular at the Larimer County Farmers Market and a brick-and-mortar newcomer to southeast Fort Collins.
Spice up your summer with a cup of fresh-cut Mexican fruit drizzled with chamoy and sprinkled with Tajin from Nieves y Botanas del Bajio north of Fort Collins.
Where: Mama Pistilli’s Meatball House, 167 S Madison Ave, Loveland
Looking for comfort foods? Try classic Italian dishes – including honkin’ meatballs – from Mama Pistilli’s House of Meatballs in Loveland.
A Scoop of Churn
While Old Town Churn was headquartered in an ice cream trailer during Taste of Fort Collins, the ice cream shop calls Old Town’s The Exchange – and a giant bucket of antique wooden ice churn – home. Looking for a recommendation? Try their salty Oreo ice cream, a twist on a classic that also has a vegan option.
