• Donut Philly
    Behold: The Philly Cheese Steak Donut Burger (doughnut or donut, you decide.)

    It’s not the South Florida Fair without some fun, fried and funky foods. (Preferably on a stick.)
    Here is how food vendor Larry Sivori, who specializes in doughnut burgers, described it to fair officials: “It consists of Philly steak meat (shaved rib-eye) with a fresh, never frozen, burger topped with two different cheeses, grilled green peppers and onions, all between two Krispy Kreme donuts.”

    Who’s got the Lipitor prescription?

    But that’s not all.

    Angela’s, a food booth, will offer “giant mozzarella cheese sticks” — four ounces of cheesy goodness stuck on a stick, dipped in a batter and bread-crumbed before being fried.

    The vendor Bianco’s Foods will offer waffle hot dogs, along with chicken and waffles.

    A healthier alternative, but still cheesy good: The vendor Hot Wisconsin Cheese has specially made cheese from Wisconsin, all natural and not frozen. Fair officials say this is the only place you can get this in Florida.
