Yankee Stadium is packed with out-of-the-cracker-jack-box food options, from logo waffles and egg creams to bacon-stuffed grilled cheese sandwiches. Plus, there are plenty of new vendors making their debut this season. New for 2018: steak and rotisserie chicken specialties, Hawaiian-inspired ballpark grub, decadent milkshakes at Grand Slam Shakes and more. The Bombers’ crosstown rivals, The Mets, have already turned Citi Field into a foodie paradise of sorts, offering dishes from the hottest chefs and buzz-worthy desserts. Here are some of the stadium’s highlights, starting with the newest options: Taquitos Photo Credit: Yankee Stadium Want easy-to-munch Mexican fare? The newest Taquitos stand offers several "cups," including a "Black Bean Taquito Cup" pictured above, that stuffs spiced black beans into a hand-rolled taquito, served with chili con queso and pico de gallo. For the meat lovers, the stand also offers up a similar item with braised chicken. Where: Section 127 Noodle Bowl Stand Photo Credit: Yankee Stadium Mixing traditional American fare with Asian-inspired flavors, the newest addition to Yankee Stadium dining boasts bacon cheeseburger crispy dumplings, with a side of pickles and Thousand Island dressing; and the "General Tso's Crispy Chicken Sandwich," including a fried chicken patty infused with a sweet, tangy glaze reminiscent of the Chinese staple, topped with Sriracha slaw on a sesame seed bun. Where: Section 127 Rotisserie Chicken and Steak Stand Photo Credit: Yankee Stadium A new stand serving flat iron steak and rotisserie-style half chicken over a bed of shoestring fries promises gourmet game-time grub for those so inclined. Visitors looking for a more conventional option can grab the charbroiled burger topped with American cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion, which keeps the menu rooted in traditional stadium-dining fare. Where: Section 105 King's Hawaiian Photo Credit: Yankee Stadium The national bakery and restaurant chain that began as a small sweet bread shop in Hawaii introduces traditional Hawaiian twists on game day staples. Pictured above is the Sweet Pineapple BBQ Kalua Pork Sandwich, with red cabbage slaw infused with soy sauce on the famed King's Hawaiian bun. Other offerings include a split top hot dog with BBQ brisket, macaroni salad and pepper jack cheese; pork nachos with pineapple and sweet BBQ sauce; and a crispy chicken sandwich doused in the restaurant's very own Big Island Lava BBQ sauce with pickle chips on a toasted bun. Where: Sections 105 and 334 Yankee Stadium Grand Slam Shakes Photo Credit: Yankee Stadium The new milkshake stand hits a home run with milky, gooey goodness dressed up in huge glasses with the Yankees' logo. Two vanilla-based shakes go all out with layers of cotton candy, churros, Cracker Jacks drizzled with caramel in the "Pinstripe," and "Celebration," which boasts birthday cake frosting and mini vanilla cupcakes on top. For the chocolate lovers, "Smore's" with toasted marshmallows, candy-coated pretzels and a graham cracker dust does the trick, and so does the decadent "Chocolate All-Star," which pulls out all the stops with a chocolate chip cookie, fudge brownie, M&Ms and crushed Oreos piled on top. Where: Section 125 Mighty Quinn’s Photo Credit: Olivia Cheng The joint with spots in Brooklyn and Manhattan brought its barbecue eats to the stadium last year with offerings, like these seasoned brisket sandwiches, as well as chicken wings and pulled pork.
