Imagine a baseball game and it is impossible not to think about the food.

And although the Major League Baseball stars are the main attraction at London Stadium this weekend, the food is just as exciting as the food they bring.

Not in the last place the Boomstick, a 24-inch hot dog that has been regularly in the US in recent years.

It weighs 1.5 pounds and is covered with cheese, beef chili, jalapeno peppers and comes with a calorie count of more than 2,000 – or the recommended daily intake for an adult.

Although it is designed to be shared by four or five people, it is not difficult to see a person chowing on the £ 24 meal.

There are also the Boomstick nachos, a large part of the nachos covered with the same toppings as the hot dog.

That costs £ 19 for every gambler at the London Stadium.

To prepare for a weekend in which they expect to shift 150,000 of each Boomstick product, the chefs prepare 3,000 pounds of pepper.

The chefs have also worked with Mondo Brewery to make a special beer for the series. It is a pale IPA.

Two unique cocktails are also served. They are the New Yorker, based on gin, and the Bostonian, a Caribbean dark rum drink with chai tea.

Also available to eat are the main burger, the vegetarian dirty beet burger, the chicken of the fat chicken and the nachos of the house plate, plus a selection of sausages.

In the weekend, fans are expected to receive 25,000 hot dogs and sausages, 15,000 chicken burgers, 6,000 chicken bids, 27,000 hamburgers, 650 kg of bacon, a ton of peanuts and two tons of nacho cheese sauce.

On Saturday and Sunday, as expected, peddlers walk through the stands and offer a range of food and drinks – meaning people don't have to leave their seats for some items on the menu.

This weekend the first regular season games are ever played in Europe. In the London Series, the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees play two games.
