High end “Food Courts” seem to be growing in popularity. FoodParc takes this to the next level, with a super modern interior where you order (only somewhat successfully) on computers.
After you order food (or beer from BeerParc), you walk out to a lovely outdoor space in the middle of the city (with a giant screen, that on this day was showing the US Open).
We decided to sample from a few different stands in FoodParc. But first, we found out that with a FourSquare check-in, you can get a free drink. I got a watermelon lemonade that was awesome.
We started with Fornetti where they serve their pasta on flatbread. We got the rigatoni bolognese with veal, pork, beef, tomato, garlic, onion and basil. This was delicious, with big chunks of meat and surprisingly crispy flatbread. I’m not sure WHY someone would choose to serve their pasta on flatbread, but after eating this, I am surprised more people don’t. For fast food it was great.
We also tried the burger from 3Bs (bacon, burger, and beers). We got the Special, with American cheese, secret sauce, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles and crispy onions. It was good… but nothing great.
Lastly, we tried the roast duck bun from Mr. Wong’s Noodles. It was fine, but lacking in flavors. I wanted the taste of more duck and it just wasn’t there. It was fine, but just not great.
Summary: Get the pasta on flatbread. Yum Yum
