Ice skating in Santa Rosa tomorrow--new, exciting lunch rec's?

I haven't been to Santa Rosa in a while. But I'm heading down for some skating and hopefully some good chow after. Anything new and interesting? Or just standing out in your mind as good! I've enjoyed Cafe Japan and Cafe St. Rose in the past. I like pretty much any cuisine.

  1. I don't know what would be new & interesting for you, but these are some local favorites for lunch (in no particular order):

    > Monti's Rotisserie (Quail, Fig & Cabrales salad)
    > Antojito's La Texanita (Pozole)
    > Simply Vietnam (Pho)
    > Thai House (Roast Duck with Pumpkin Curry)
    > Taco Max (Fish Al Pastor Tacos)

    1. Thanx--that sound's good! I know Monte's. What areas are Pho Vietnam and Thai House in?

        I love Santa Trata, an Eritrean place. I can't remember the address, but it's been mentioned on this board before.

        One of my favorite Mexican food places is called "La Texanita" on Sebastopol Road.

          Pho Vietnam is on Dutton south of College... and Thai House is near Railroad Square (close to the Omelette Express place).

            Thai House is on 4th Street, next door to and above Sonoma Coffee Company...I think the Thai food place you meant is Khoom Lana which is across the street from Omelette Express.

            Santa Trata and Pho Vietnam are next door to each other. I think you maybe meant Simply Vietnam? That is on Dutton...near the corner of Dutton and West 9th.

              Thanks for Khoom Lanna.. that IS the correct Thai place on 4th... I did mention Simply Vietnam (I wasn't the one that mentioned Santa Trata).
