Mitote Food Park, Santa Rosa
In the middle of a journey through wine country, I came to myself in a dark sort of mood—you know the feeling: sad and hungry, craving a pile of food so massive it just may start to fill that black hole-sized pit of woe in your stomach.
Then I saw it, a shining beacon in the distance promising a smorgasbord of satisfying snacks. I cannot say exactly how I entered Mitote Food Park but, as I passed through the gates of this Santa Rosa Shangri-La of street food, I knew I had found the perfect place to eat my feelings.
The smell of churros wafts through the air. To my left, birria tacos. To my right, a bar (open seven days a week…am I in heaven?). Surrounded by a one-man feast, I sit alone in the darkest corner of this bright and festive outdoor food park and sip my drink—a single tear falls from my eye. Bliss, I think, to eat your feelings at Mitote Food Park.
