Review: Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Pizza

170314 Knott's Berry Farm Boysenberry Pizza 1

In the beginning the Knott’s family created the fried chicken and boysenberries. The park was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of Ghost Town. Today the boysenberry reigns supreme and is highlighted by the #BoysenberryFestival, running April 1-23, 2017 at Knott’s Berry Farm.

As the event has grown in popularity, so has the extraordinary menu, with Knott’s chefs working on creating new concoctions each year. One of the new 2017 menu items is Boysenberry Pizza, and we were fortunate enough to sample this new item during a preview event.

The boysenberry pizza features a boysenberry cream sauce, chopped black forest ham, goat cheese, slivered almonds, caramelized onions and arugula, with a Boysenberry/Sriracha drizzled on top.

The boysenberry pizza provides a nice array of flavors from the creaminess of the goat cheese, to the crispy ham, to the little bit of heat from the sauce.

Review: Mrs. Knott’s Chicken-to-Go

160417 Knott's Berry Farm Chicken-to-Go (1)

On our family’s frequent visits to Knott’s Berry Farm, we try and fit in as much as we can see, do and eat within a short period of time. That involves typically eating a lot of different food items. Yet we do not always have time to sit down for a full meal at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Restaurant. That is why we are always happy to visit Mrs. Knot’s Chicken-to-Go storefront located outside the gates of the park.

After a long day of running around the parks, and returning to our Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel for the evening, it is often ideal to walk over to the Knott’s Marketplace and grab some quick dinner or a snack from Chicken-to-Go.

The Chicken-to-Go storefront offers a lot of the same menu items you can get inside the restaurant. Get your favorite biscuits with boysenberry butter, chicken noodle soup, and of course the famous fried chicken! Plus you can get boysenberry punch to go in the Knott’s Marketplace. Score!

The Mrs. Knott’s fried chicken really is amazing, and something you will be yearning to have again when you spend time away from the park. Thus why eating the chicken in some form is always a requirement on our trips to Knott’s Berry Farm.

Review: Knott’s Berry Farm Fireman’s BBQ Flank Steak

161004 Knott's Berry Farm Firemen's Brigade Flank Steak

During all of our visits to Knott’s Berry Farm, having the All-Season dining plan has allowed us to eat a variety of food options around the park. However, the variety in years past was rather limited. It was actually quite sad when so many good food options are available around the park but they were not available on the meal plans.

So on such a visit, we elected to step up our food for the day and purchase the Fireman’s Brigade BBQ Flank Steak meal in Ghost Town.

The flank steak is marinated for 24 hours and then grilled over an open flame. The sandwich is served on a fresh bun baked at Knott’s, and topped with Roma tomatoes, lettuce, and BBQ sauce. The meal includes a bag of chips.

The Knott’s Berry Farm Fireman’s BBQ Flank Steak is phenomenal! We really enjoyed this sandwich, as the meat was very flavorful and well cooked, and the bread was just perfect with the barbecue sauce.

Now we are also even more excited to learn that the flank steak sandwich is on the 2017 Knott’s Berry Farm Dining Plans. Save us a space at the picnic tables adjacent to the Firemen’s Brigade BBQ, as you will surely see us there on our next visit to Knott’s!
