street food Santa Rosa Downtown Market

ellen roberts | Jul 3, 200302:08 PM     2

Wednesday nights on downtown Fourth St is an opportunity for the often lamented street food.
There is a good variety and some of it is quite good.
We sampled: vegetarian dosas with a homemade fresh peach chutney --the evening winner they also had fresh
ginger lemonade and while wonderful not cheap $7.00 for the dosa a variety of chutneys and a salad.
At the tamale lady's we had the corn, chile cheese but there is a wide variety of traditional and non traditional very good and a good price $3.00. From the Thai Taste booth a combination plate for $5.00 was the best buy and also tasted good -spring roll, noodles, slaw type salad , a kufi (?) sort of pastry shell stuffed with vegetable and an egg roll type of thing. Also tried a Greek snack -chicken kabobs with yougurt sauce 4.50 and last but not least gumbo 5.00. Almost forgot bbq oysters 2.00 each 3/$5hmmmm. There were three of us and we were quite happily stuffed. Places we didn't try included Mary's Pizza, Johnny Garlic's, Thai House, Willie Bird -grilled legs, Pasta King, Mexican, lot of baked goods, Cold Stone creamery and Mom's Apple Pie. The folks with the oysters also had some relatively healthy looking plates. There is produce for sale and lots of samples. There is also cotten candy and kettle corn. And a hotdog cart. It is the regular Court House Square vendor. At least on Wednesday you can walk and eat in Santa Rosa.
