The new season is firmly underway and just like the teams on the ice have bolstered their rosters with new additions, the Scotiabank Saddledome has added to theirs to make this the best season yet, on and off the ice.
From a speakeasy bar to food from afar, here's what you can find at the 'Dome this season.
'Lost in Tijuana' Mexican street food. You read that correctly, you can get food truck inspired traditional Mexican grub right on the concourse. Skip the pre-game search for new and trendy eats and head straight to the 'Dome. Featuring beef burritos, chicken quesadillas, all the hot sauces your heart can desire and, of course, it wouldn't be complete without a margarita! Churros are available around the building but you're going to want to stop here for the caramel sauce -trust us.
If you're still feeling adventurous, each month an outside restaurant takes over the Saddledome Test Kitchen and serves a different themed menu. November's menu takes a trip 'Down Under' with a menu featuring Aussie Burgers, Hand Pies, Hokey Pokey ice cream and more items coming soon.
Sidecar is the new speakeasy bar, located at Section 219 on the concourse. A full bar in a quieter space is the perfect spot to take your client or date to chat over drinks. The menu includes the namesake Sidecar, along with classics such as the Negroni, Aviation and Midori Mad cocktails, all priced at $9.75. In addition to their rotating cocktail list, you can enjoy a variety of wines and craft beer - new pre-game ritual anyone?
Any truly great team features a balanced roster covering every sneed. The 'Getting Veggie with It' menu is meat-free and mouth-watering. You can enjoy concession classics in vegan-friendly fashion, from hot dogs, Italian sausage and burgers to nachos topped with vegan cheese sauce. Or how about a vegan chilli with sweet potato and smoked cheddar or a delicious Bibimbap rice bowl. It's vegan and gluten-free made with pickled carrots, cucumbers, roasted shiitake mushrooms, wilted spinach, tempeh, finished with gochujang sauce.
Last, but not least, there are the classics, your go-to favourites you enjoy on repeat like a Johnny Hockey highlight reel. Satisfy your mid-game cravings with popcorn, pizza slices and hot dogs on the concourse. Need a full meal? Head over to the King Club for breaded chicken wings, nachos or try the new signature flatbreads with your choice of Taco or Margherita flavours. Wash it all down with an ice-cold Budweiser and you're game ready.
