The Chowhound posts about Salinas street food ... many by Melanie Wong ... have made Salinas a destination for me next time I'm in that area.
Here's a map for others who I know are interested in these wonderful and delicious vendors.
Sadly these unique food vendors might soon be gone because Salinas wants to ban street vendors. It was my main reason for exiting the freeway and stopping in Salinas. I've already seen the Steinbeck Museum. and been to the rodeo. I haven't tried all the interesting street vendors in town.
Anyone trying new street vendors, link your topic to this post and I will add to the map. You can also let me know of additions by using the email address on my profile (My Chow) page. There's an email address on the map link, but I won't check that as often.
In the first reply of this topic there is a cheat sheet of all the information in the map as of this original post. It is subject to change and the best place to check is the Google map for the most current info.
