Taste of Chicago will be in its 39th year this summer, but the city hopes to keep the food extravaganza fresh and tasty with 37 new vendors.
Newcomers announced Thursday will include 90 Miles Cuban Café, Hakka Bakka Indian Kati Rolls, Luella’s Gospel Bird, Pink Taco and Whadda Jerk.
Eighty-two eateries will be serving their specialties at Taste from July 10-14 in Grant Park.
The vendors will include 24 pop-ups and 17 food trucks.
The cuisines will span barbecue, Brazilian, Chinese, Jamaican and Thai, among many others.
Admission to Taste is free, but tickets for food and beverages must be purchased in strips of 14 tickets for $10.
The food fest also will continue its nightly concerts at the Petrillo Music Shell along with local artists at the Goose Island Stage. The music and entertainment lineup will be announced next month.
