The recent Big Tex Choice Awards gave us a peek at some of the new dishes at this year's State Fair of Texas, but those 10 dishes are by no means the only newcomers you'll find scattered around the fair. Yesterday, the fair released a list of other new dishes, and while it didn't include descriptions, it's safe to say that many of these dishes speak for themselves. The fair begins Sept. 29.
