“These specialty food festivals provide a great opportunity for our small business, food vendor partners to get creative and try out new items.” Johnson said. “Of course, I am excited to try out all of the classic Mac n’ Cheese dishes but I am also very interested in some of the more fringe offerings our vendors are talking about like Mac n’ Cheese Pierogies, Mac n’ Cheese Calzones, and more.”

The Yellow Cab tavern recently hosted Dayton Birria Fest featuring all things Birria tacos and Birria-inspired dishes.
