    Default Beer cheese and pizza-sized pretzels: Dodger Stadium's new menu items for 2010 season

    Beer cheese and pizza-sized pretzels: Dodger Stadium's new menu items for 2010 season | Daily Dish | Los Angeles Times

    Few things about sporting events make me giddy. I mean, I like the cheering, the good-natured rivalries, the spirit colors -- but the part that really makes me swoon? Game food. So when it comes to baseball -- where it is completely acceptable to hang out with friends and guiltlessly down hot dogs and beer -- I say count me in.

    Dodger Stadium understands that the food gets (almost) as much attention as the game. So Executive Chef Joseph Martin and restaurant partner Levy Restaurants have made sure that when the Dodgers play the Arizona Diamondbacks on Opening Day next Tuesday (April 13), fans will be able to munch on exciting new food while warming those bleachers.

    New on the menu is the giant Victory Knot pretzel with beer cheese dipping sauce, gourmet Niman Ranch sausages and the spicy Picante Dog, back by popular demand (literally -- it has its own Facebook fan group which was dedicated to bringing it back from menu dormancy).

    The new pizza-sized Victory Knot is made with two pounds of dough, topped with sea salt and served with three dipping sauces -- chipotle honey mustard, sweet cinnamon crème, and beer cheese. The calorie information wasn't available when we wrote this, but we can surmise that it's best not to try and eat one by yourself -- it’s supposed to serve four.

    If hot dogs and beer cheese don’t sound like something you want to stomach for nine innings, three Health Plate carts serve healthier fare: spicy shrimp cocktail, fresh seasonal fruit salad, curried chicken lettuce wraps and sushi. Spicy tuna rolls at a baseball game, though? I might just stick with my $5 Dodger Dog.

    (Keep reading about Dodger Stadium's new grub after the jump.)

    But for those who care about such things, a Dodger Dog with a bun reportedly weighs in at 410 calories, the Niman Ranch sausages (like chipotle cheddar and apple gouda) range from 190-210 calories on their own, and the curried chicken wraps go down easy at 290. Gluten-free beer and snacks (like California Chips and gummy bears) are available at the Health Plate carts.

    My Town themed nights are also back. On select nights, special tickets include ethnic cuisines like traditional Venezuelan pabellon criollo (beef and black beans over rice), creative twists like a Black Diamond polish sausage sandwich for Mammoth night, and good ol' cheeseburgers for Facebook night (maybe all that Farmville and Restaurant City playing makes you crave a cheeseburger?)

    Each ticket to My Town ($45 individual, $47 with a group) includes a Dodgertown T-shirt and the all-inclusive themed menu, plus Dodger Dogs and other goodies. Several nights, including the Star Wars themed night, sold out last year. Find other My Town night menus and details here.

    All this talk of junky, delicious stadium food raises the question: Does anyone really even pay attention to the actual game?

    Oh, that’s right: our Dodgers blog does (and so I do, most of the time). Play ball!

    That giant pretzel sounds mighty tasty - unhealthy and artery-clogging as hell - but tasty.
