The fair’s website has a list of all the food booths, arranged by trail, so you can navigate your gastronomical adventure. Working from recommendations from longtime fairgoers and following my nose, here are some of my favorites from this year.
The Hungry Chum: A definitive guide to Anchorage doughnuts
If you ask my family, I’ve never been too shy to say what needs to be said. I won’t sugarcoat it — I have found the best doughnuts in Anchorage. As I write, there is sugar coursing through my veins. Some people talk about being able to feel adrenaline move through your body, but I […]

The Hungry Chum: Kava’s is more than pancakes, it’s aloha
The red vinyl covering the seat of the booth groaned as I reached for my yellow mug of diner coffee. Suddenly, my weekend morning (OK, early afternoon) was interrupted by a wave of recollection: driving in a white Jeep on a road that hugged the ocean, windows down and music up. Much to the dismay […]

The Hungry Chum: Fresh new flavors meet old school soul at City Diner
A three-part harmony, a good burger and a cold milkshake are part of what made America great. Not so common anymore, diners call us back to a time of bobby socks, a good jukebox and leather-topped stools where one could belly up for some grub. My grandfather used to tell me that as a bachelor, […]

The Hungry Chum: Savor Homer in the shoulder season
Fall in Alaska is on its way out. Kids are back in school and tourists have (mostly) gone home. The short, fall shoulder season is the perfect time for Alaskans to explore the state, especially a place like Homer. In June, while the beaches and boardwalks were full of tourists wearing the classic sandals-and-tube-sock combo with […]

The Hungry Chum: Gallo’s, a tale of two cantinas
There are various divides among people: Democrats versus Republicans, cat people versus dog people, early risers versus night owls. In Anchorage, there’s another set: Old Seward Gallo’s versus Arctic Gallo’s. Gallo’s Mexican Restaurants and Cantinas have been operating in Anchorage since 1981, according to their website, when the restaurant was founded by Abraham Gallo. Since […]

The Hungry Chum: Thai food truck brings city flavors to Girdwood
It was like a treasure hunt, with hand-drawn signs every few blocks that eventually led us between two buildings, past a rhubarb bush and a large, lazy husky. Then we found it — in a little courtyard sat the small pink and blue trailer. Known as Cheech & Nong’s Aroy-D Thai food truck, or any […]

The Hungry Chum: How one man creates a world inside a Greek cafe
Sometimes a place isn’t so much about geography or what’s inside. Its significance lies in the people who are there. On one of the first warm days this spring, Blue Eyes and I rode our bikes in search of adventure and something yummy. We ended up not too far from our Midtown abode. Painted a […]

The Hungry Chum: Pipers serves classic Alaska with a great view
With its distinctive totem poles and old Alaska charm, one eatery and watering hole tells the tales of Alaska’s past.

The Hungry Chum: Harvest pop-up restaurant is a foraged feast
We sat beneath a chandelier made of wine bottles in the middle of the bar. I was eagerly awaiting our eight-course feast. I was skeptical. The tickets sport a $110 price tag, yet I reserved judgment.

The Hungry Chum: Here’s where to find the best oysters in downtown Anchorage
Oysters remind me of my father. He was, and still is, a blue-collar man. He would eat them out of a can, with hot sauce and saltine crackers, sitting at the kitchen table. Which is not far from where the filter-feeders got their start — among the common folk. It wasn’t until their increased popularity […]

The Hungry Chum: Top Bop is Korean food with training wheels
Foreign food has a tendency to make people uncomfortable. I can’t be the only one with a family member who avoids whole gastronomical regions because they are daunted by chopsticks.
