Choomongous Challenge

Baseball season means big ballpark food for Texas Rangers fans, and this year is no different with the launch of yet another 2-foot monster from the newly renamed Globe Life Park in Arlington. The Choomongous, named for the Rangers’ new superstar outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, is a gargantuan sandwich topped with soy sauce and teriyaki-marinated skirt steak and a spicy Asian slaw. Sesame oil, garlic, Sriracha sauce and Mae Ploy-brand sweet chili sauce combine to add a piquant kick. Find it with all the other massive menu items at 24, the concession stand located behind home plate where everything is either 24 inches or 24 ounces. “It’s $26 and meant to serve two to four people,” says ballpark food operations manager Casey Rapp. “But I’m sure someone will try to eat it by themselves.” 1000 Ballpark Way, Arlington, 817-273-5222, www.texasrangers.com.
