Coachella is obviously known for the music and art but what a lot of people don't know is that the festival brings in some of the best food from LA and OC.

We decided to go around the festival and taste test the featured food so you guys wouldn't have to. After your 3 mile, okay maybe like 1 mile, walk into the festival, we promise you are going to work up an appetite. 

Start off with some fried chicken and donuts at BIRDIES in the main VIP area. It's the perfect mix of sweet and savory.

Before you head to watch your favorite artist, grab a drink from the bar. Beer can be a little heavy so make sure you try the fan favorite, Paradise Mule.

After you get your afternoon fix of music, fuel up with some "Ramen Hood." If you're still on that Coachella diet (tbh let loose this weekend) don't worry, their food is vegan friendly... and delicious. 

After filling up on the ramen, cool yourself off with ice cream from McConnell's ... you won't regret it!

Pro tip: sea salt cookies and cream is BOMB.COM.

If you start to crash before the last artist of the night, get a pick-me-up espresso at the Caravan Cafe and you'll be ready to go! 

Well, there you go! There's our food recap from Day 1 at Coachella.
