The Arts in the Heart Hotdog Stand is a popular eating spot for kids of all ages. Vincenzo’s Italian Ice returns to help cool things off and feed the sweet tooth.
There are also lots of kid-friendly options in the Global Food Village like Indian Bread, a deep fried wheat bread served with chickpea curry that is very popular with children. And of course the Filipino Banana Turon is a must have for kids.
No meal is complete without a scrumptious dessert and Arts in the Heart has lots of sweet goodness to choose from.
It might be the baklava ice cream from Greece that melts your heart, ice cream cannoli from Italy, or a taste for Karanji, a pastry filled with shredded coconut, nuts and raisins – which can be found in the Indian booth. Or you might want to cool off with Hsalo-halo, a Filipino shaved ice dessert.
Perhaps it’s the award-winning Irish Whiskey cake that you absolutely must have every year at the Festival. We promise, no matter what your sweet tooth is begging for, you’ll find something to delight it!
