If you live in Orange County you’ll probably know about popular food halls such as Anaheim Packing House and 4th Street Market. Well, get ready to add another name on that growing list, McFadden Public Market, which is set to open early April 2017! Less than two blocks away from 4th Street Market, this two-story food hall will introduce new food concepts, bars, and a retro arcade all under one roof!
As you can see, the inside is not exactly prepped and ready to go yet, but the first floor has all the food concepts (the second floor has the bar/arcade). Each concept has bar style seating with some tables in the middle of the hall. Towards the very back, there will also be a designated area for outdoor seating.
What food concepts will be there?
Rooster Republic – will be serving up traditional soul food with their signature item being the Fried Chicken served with either White BBQ or Hot Honey sauce.
Milk Man – serving up scoops of ice cream with flavors varying from classic Strawberry to Peanut Butter and Jelly, along with their house made toppings such as their mini cones
Tacos En Tu Boca – serving up items such as their nachos topped with Sisig/Chicken Chipotle and other burritos, tacos, etc.
Bone Stock – this asian fusion cuisine will be serving items from traditional Pho to a Spring-ception creation (shrimp spring roll with eggroll inside). The actual item they’ll be selling will be more like a massive burrito, with 3-4 EGGROLLS stuffed inside! Served with a side of peanut sauce, it was actually my favorite item there.
Solid Coffee – will be serving up their cold brew coffees, house specialty coffees, and other delicious drinks. Unfortunately, their store wasn’t set up yet, but they roast their own coffee and have another location in Cerritos if you’d like to check them out early!
Under Control – the bar located downstairs will be serving up signature drinks
Mission Control – located upstairs, is the barcade that will be serving up drinks as you play on their retro arcade machines.
If the portions look small, have no fear, these were just samples of the actual items to come. In regards to parking, there is a a small lot located directly behind the McFadden Public Market but you can always park at the 4th Street Market at 50 cents for the first half hour and $1 thereafter. Again, they’ll be open early April 2017 so keep an eye out for this new food hall!
