Good Food at a Mall?
Serious Pie, a suggestion I got on Twitter from Bubby Roses Bakery. We got there and it was packed out so we wandered around looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled on Mexico Cantina y Veracruz in the Pacific Place mall. Pacific Place is not a normal mall, but a high end shopping place and this means no Arbys or Orange Julius, but decent restaurants.
Mexico Cantina y Veracruz is well styled and seems to serve authentic Mexican cuisine. The tortilla chips were still hot when they made it to the table.
I had a slow roasted pork dish. The pork was covered in a green chili mole and served on a bed of rice. It had the fixings to make a couple of small tacos. The pork was melt in my mouth good. All in all it was a unique Mexican dish that I had never had before.
Sheila ordered a tamale, she had never eaten a tamale before and did not know what it would be like, it ultimately was not the sort of thing she liked. The tamale was well done with a nice mole, but I am not a fan of them either.
Max had non Mexican food and Stephen had a basic beef enchilada. The boys also got churros which were still hot when they arrived at the table.
Speaking of dessert, on the way out I saw a tray of desserts and they looked like they belonged in a serious up scale restaurant. It made be regret not ordering dessert.
I would go back, but since I am in Seattle only rarely I am unlikely to try the same restaurant twice.
