Taqueria Mal Pan
Visited Thursday right as they opened (11 am). I was greeted/seated right away. People were gradually flowing in - by 12 the restaurant was nearly full. I would recommend calling/making a reservation for evening dining. The decor/ambiance was super cute!!! I ordered: $43.30 - Guacamole, Salsa and Chips - $11.00 (they do not offer complimentary chips and salsa) Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita - $14.00 California Burrito - $15.00 The California Burrio had glowing reviews, so I had to give it a try. The steak was delicious - however I wasn't a fan of the fries in the burrito. The cucumber jalapeno margarita had the refreshing taste from the cucumber then a heavy kick from the jalapeno! It was good - just kept my water handy!! All-in-all ... I enjoyed my meal. I plan to come back and try different menu items. A parking garage is available - however there is a time limit.
This restaurant has excellent food. I went with a friend yesterday. I had the pork Taco and Tommy's Margarita. The margarita was flavorful and had pink Himalayan salt on the side, a nice touch. The Taco was delicious. I would recommend getting 2, I only got one and they are small. I also had the Tres Leches which was different than the usual, lots of cinnamon flavor, very good! The only reason I did not give this place 5 stars is because the tea my friend had was weak and the fact they only had 1 dessert. The service was very good also. I recommend this restaurant!
Believe all the hype on this one, it's been on my list to try and Mal Pan does not disappoint. First, I have to say the tortillas house-made are so fresh and delicious! The Cameron Royal taco was fantastic and everything on it blended just perfectly. It was by far my favorite thing! The queso, steak taco and esquites were all flavorful, plated beautifully and delicious. I really liked the vibe from the playful floral wallpaper to the natural elements. You could feel that Mal Pan was really putting their heart into everything they do and it shows.
Pleasantly surprised!! Cool vibe and great food & drinks. Slightly on the more expensive side and $$ vs. $ that was seen online so be prepared to pay a little more. Great service and convenient parking in the free parking garage in southpark! Highly recommended!
This place will not try to become your favorite-and-usual Mexican restaurant. It has it own flare and theyre doing it right. Different take, yes, but good. Very good I'd say.
