Last time I went to Fenway Park, I was almost late to the game because of crazy thunderstorms and ran right into the stadium and ended up getting a pulled pork sandwich inside the stadium, which we went over in a previous “Chowin’ Down”. I wasn’t going to miss a second chance at the steak tips just outside Fenway Park sold by the street vendors. I solicited help from steak tips connoisseur and ESPN “Baseball Tonight” host Steve Berthiaume on Twitter.
With that information I set off to the corner of Landsdowne St. passing by “Sausage Connection” and “All-American Sausage”. I needed to meet the “Sausage King”, but it wasn’t sausage I was looking for (though those looked amazing too) I wanted steak tips. $8.00 got me a sandwich topped with onions and peppers. The sandwich was cheaper than similar food inside Fenway. Steve, if you read this, the Sausage King says hi and can’t wait to see you again.
The steak tips were absolutely, mouth-wateringly, delicious. They are proof that the best ballpark food isn’t always IN the ballpark. I’m heading out to California next month to go to Oakland, Anaheim, San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco in that order. Any ballpark food recommendations?
