The invention of refried beans opened up a host of culinary possibilities, from twice-baked potatoes, to reheated take-out. Get culinary double-vision with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of authentic Mexican and Colombian fare at Plaza Fiesta in The Hispanic Shopping Center. The plaza contains four kiosk-style eateries: La Fonda Paisa, Pollos Mi Tierra, Yami’s Pizza Gorditas and Wings, and Churros Calentitos.
Plaza Fiesta blends Mexican, Colombian, and American cuisine across the expanse of The Hispanic Shopping Center's international-food court dotted with four eateries. Dig into a Colombian lunch special like an archeologist with a tool belt full of forks at La Fonda Paisa, which slings a rotating menu of authentic south American favorites such as Bandeja Paisa and carne asada, each side kicked with a canned beverage, and soup ($7.50), for a meal more Colombian than eating a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel. For comestible delights in triangle format, guests can caper across the court to Yami's Pizza to grab two slices, a canned drink, and fries ($6.99). The hub of Latin-themed commerce keeps sweet teeth from turning sour with south of the border sweets, including plain ($1.75), chocolate, strawberry, or caramel-flavored churros ($2). Flush with arcade games, clothing stores, and a central fountain for clans to gather around, make wishes in, or reenact Horatio Nelson's famous battle against self-doubt on, Plaza Fiesta fosters a family environment.
