Strolling through this food festival made for a great evening. You can carry your alcoholic drinks on the street as you check out all the food options, live music, and social scene. Buskers entertained, and the people watching is great.

South Fortaleza street has a great variety of restaurants. These, during SoFo, offer some of their light plates or specials for the day in a casual atmosphere. A great way to experience a taste of their flavors. Our favorite this year, Dragonflys noodles.

If you crave for ambiance, food diversity and a variety of music. Visit Sofo Culinary Fest. Around 40 different Restaurants, about 5 music bands, and many local arts and crafts.

I used to like this festival--it was fun, casual, had great food, and outside. Perfect! But as a resident of Fortaleza Street (yes, people do live here) I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to have to leave town every time this event occurs....More
