Levi’s Stadium unveils more food choices for Packers game and beyond

San Francisco 49ers fans heading to Sunday’s home opener better arrive early — and hungry.

Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara and its hospitality partner, Levy, have unveiled more new food selections starting with the game against the Green Bay Packers — including Pacific Island favorites from the Hula Truck, a Santa Clara family business; creative tacos from the Puesto restaurant group; and a themed special for any cheeseheads in the stands, Cheese Curd and Andouille Nachos.

New to the concession stands this year is Puesto Santa Clara restaurant. The taco specialists will serve Birria Tacos, Baja Fish Tacos and Bang Bang Margaritas. (Photo courtesy of Levi’s Stadium) 

Hula and Puesto join more than a dozen other vendors already announced, and the emphasis is on chefs with local roots. Fans will find booths from the Smoking Pig BBQ, The Shop by Chef Baca, Iguanas, Konjoe Burger, Blue Line Pizza, the Chairman, ChurWaffle, Starbird, Sandi’s Soul Food, Chicken Guy, Nathan’s and Skip’s Fish & Chicken. (Learn more about these menus in our Kickoff magazine food roundup.)

Executive chef Jon Severson, whose wide-ranging duties extend to dreaming up opponent-themed specialties (hmmm, what’s a quintessential Indiana dish for that Oct 24 game?) created the cheese curd nachos for this game as well as a fun new array for the stands and the suites.

At the concessions you’ll find the “Big Kid” Dog, a foot-long hot dog from Gilroy’s Silva Sausage Co. topped with macaroni and cheese, drizzled with chile-lime crema and sprinkled with Flaming Hot Cheetos dust; the Loaded El Pollo Pastor Nachos, a chicken riff on a taqueria favorite; and the opponent dish of the week.

For the suites, Severson’s big addition is the Porterhouse & Seared Ahi Tuna Board, served with charred and pickled vegetables, miso-ginger sauce and chimichurri. But traditional green chimichurri doesn’t fly here in the land of red and gold. So Severson has created a red chimichurri with Calabrian chiles, onions, smoked paprika and other spices. (Let us be the first to suggest the team make this available commercially. Call it 49ers Red Zone Salsa.)
