Street Food Extravaganza !

In honor of Sara's 30th birthday we decided to celebrate and treat SSP's foodie to lunch at the Ferry Building.

Thursdays from 10am to 2pm local street food and produce vendors take to the sidewalk outside the Ferry Building and set up booths giving you a chance to taste the best of the Bay Area. This was the perfect opportunity to satisfy our taste buds with a variety of cuisine choices.

The Ferry Building has plenty of communal tables set up outside... but Heather and I decided to bring our own decor complete with an adorable yellow checked table cloth, smart candles, and a few sunflowers for Sara's special day!

First stop, Tacolicious where Merideth, Danielle, and I enjoyed some wonderful "shot and a beer braised" chicken tacos, house-made chips, and a roasted tomato and mint salsa...yum ! Tacolicious also has a selection of three fresh sauces for you to choose from. My personal favorite was the "Green Goodness." Next to them are the pluot hibiscus and melon drinks which were super refreshing on a hot day.

We also tried out Pizza Politana which serves amazing wood-fired pizzas. Samantha tried the Margherita with tomato sauce, fresh basil, and mozzarella.

Check out the line at RoliRoti ! This vendor offers sustainably - farmed meats and organic produce. Heather's favorite was the pork sandwich but we will have to make another trip to try the roasted chicken and other specialty meats.

Sara made us all a little jealous when she made her way back to the table after stopping by 4505 Meats. She definitely enjoyed her birthday meal with the main course being one of their famous Golden Dogs.

Dessert time! Danielle stopped in at Miette and snagged us some amazing treats. For the birthday girl, a tasty little carrot cake followed by chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, a banana tart, and a slice of chocolate cake with vanilla creme frosting. Happy Birthday Sara !

Can't make it to the Ferry Building on Thursday? That's ok!  Serious Eats has created a list of street food vendors in the Bay Area and beyond who are using Twitter to let customers know exactly when they will be in your area so you can get your street food fix.

Happy eating !
