Top Things to Eat at the PNE 2016

Mac N Cheese Stuffed Burger

This hand-made beef burger is stuffed with delicious and creamy Mac N Cheese and then topped off with classic burger condiments.

The Hercules Burger

Bring your appetite (and some friends) to help tackle this monster of a burger. The gourmet burger is a whopping 10 lbs!

Biggest Baddest Brat

A foot-long hot dog that won’t disappoint. The locally-crafted bratwurst is served in a soft baked pretzel bun and topped off with beer mustard and fried onions.

Big Pickle Corn Dog

If you love dill, then this is for you. A deep-fried pickle stuffed with a wiener. Need I say more?

The Godfather

A gourmet take on the classic Mac N Cheese, this dish tops it all off with meatballs and spaghetti sauce.

Sponge Bob Square Cheese

This one is for the kids (or the kid in you). Out of This World Kids Food Truck serves up some delicious kid-friendly options that are as tasty as they are fun.

Butter Chicken Fries


A south Asian inspired poutine that takes crispy French fries and tops them off with Indian butter chicken sauce. Savoury with a bit of a kick, this one is a must try!

Teriyaki Chicken Perogies


A dish that adds a Teriyaki twist to bite-sized cheddar and potato perogies.

Nutella Glazed Mini Donuts

Sure the mini donuts are a fair classic. But how can you turn down mini donuts that are glazed with Nutella?

Mini Donut Ice Pop


A more refreshing option for fair-goers on a hot Summer’s day. This treat combines the mini donut with frozen dulce caramel cream and cinnamon.

Korn on a Stick

Taking food on a stick to new heights with this one! It combines three Canadian favourites: Kettle Korn, maple and bacon.

Bacon Candy Floss

For all of those with a sweet tooth, try this bacon-flavoured treat!

Oreo Lovers


Granny’s Cheesecake will be serving the Reece-Oreo—a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup sandwiched between two Oreo’s and then cooked into a decadent chocolate-lovers delight. Of course there will also be a deep-fried Oreo milkshake, Oreo funnel cake, Oreo churros and Oreo rice pudding.

Deep-Fried Tequila Shot Bites

This unique dish takes fried tequila flavoured cake bites and tops them off with icing sugar.

Salted Caramel Deep Fried Coffee


Deep-fried coffee treats that are drizzled in caramel and then topped off with Himalayan sea salt. A perfect blend of sweet and salty with a bit of a kick.

The PNE starts August 20th and goes on until September 5th. In addition to food, guests can look forward to a wide variety of attractions and shows, as well a concert every night during the fair. With the frenzy Pokemon Go has caused in Vancouver, it’s fair to say the Nintendo Festival at the PNE will be among the most popular attractions.
