Food Vendors @ Fanime 2010
« on: January 27, 2010, 03:16:01 PM »

I'm always randomly thinking about food and I'm surprised no one has asked about what our possible Food Vendors at fanime will be like?

I think If my memory serves me correct. In Previous years we've adapted and evolved to having late night Drink/Snack stations which REALLY helped out those who are up all hours of the night during Fanime...

I think I remember a bubble Tea/ Drink Station. --- I think we even has limited Sushi -> Japanese sytle - Food cart vendor type meals too.
So I figure in the spirit of making sure out Fans are sustained by good tasty food. Maybe we could rant, Discuss, request or talk about Food Vendors that you wished could possibly make it to Fanime in 2010 and possibly beyond.

My Vote for 2010?  Japanese style Crepes. Woot.  :D

I love Japanese-style folded crepes! There is a kiosk that sells them in the local amusement park here, my favourite is the one stuffed with frozen tiramisu. <3

If they are available at Fanime, I will definitely buy at least one.

I totally agree with crepes! Did they have little bento sets last year?

There was some kind of fried food being served near Stage Zero last year.  It was greasy, and fattening and I'm sure it took years off of my life.  But by golly if they have it again this year I'm eating it every day!  So good.  I wish I remembered exactly what it was.   ::)  I try to eat good food on a regular basis, but at the convention I throw the rules out the window.  So greasy / too sweet / bad for me foods are at the top of my list for foods I want at Fanime.   :D

^^;

Just a quick caveat... we have next to no control over the food vendors in the convention center. Food is strictly and exclusively controlled by the convention center, so the most we can do is say, "bring crepes, they'll sell". And then they laugh at us and resume their business.

Seriously, it took three years of saying something as obvious as "bring Japanese food, it will sell" for it to happen.

That said, I'm watching this thread very closely.

Well, I totally forgot about that part of the equation >_<  ugh.

Though again I'm sure all the fans & con-gers will echo the appreciation of having ANY food/drinks/snack sales on the concourse - and even more appreciation for extended hours for late night as well as addition of the recent Maid cafe :)

So with that I think we'll need to drum up more support / request for additional types of foods that we wish to see @ Fanime.
C'mon readers/posters!

What else ---as far as food--- would you like to be sold for [hopefully reasonably prices] at Fanime Con?
More Suggestions and support!

Woot.  8)

Sorry :(
*hides in the corner*

I have no idea if they have portable stands, but I'd love to see something like a Jamba Juice. I'm sure a lot of people would prefer a nice fruit smoothie to keep hydrated and keep their energy up, instead of paying four dollars for a bottle of coke from a vending machine. There's a company here in Quebec called Jugo Juice that is very much like Jamba and they have a traveling unit for events and things, so it wouldn't surprise me if Jamba does too.

Juice places (like Jamba, Jugo, etc.) as well as Frozen Yogurt have been suggested. I also would like to see them eventually make an appearance at FanimeCon, but a bird told me that space is the most likely issue as the reason why a lot of more stands aren't being added.

Also, you can partially thank me for the boba. ;)

We definitely appreciate the Boba drinks, Woot to that.  :D

 - and yeah I have to admit the concourse is pretty packed as is... Too bad there isnt a Taco Truck [aka Roach Coach] equivalent filled with Japanese food that could just park by the convention center. That would be pretty cool, I wonder if such a thing exists?  :P

Delica in SF makes great and authentic Japanese food and caters, but they're a bit on the expensive side.

Banana Crepe in SJ Japantown is great (and closer than Sophie's) for crepes. I can't personally attest to their quality but IMO Sophie's has gotten worse over the years.

Dont forget that Downtown SJ does have tons of options for food during regular business hours during the Convention.

I'm gonna regroup my thoughts and possibly talk to upper executive staff about possible options for keeping the con-goers properly nourished.  :) 

The random ideas are appreciated, but I'm gonna lock this thread for the time being.

Thanks everyone!  :D
