When the shopping spree wears thin and hunger pangs hit, the mighty malls of America, Africa, and the Emirates offer a delicious detour from retail therapy. From international flavors to local specialties, these megastructures are culinary havens waiting to be explored. So, grab your appetite and wanderlust because we’re embarking on a gastronomic globe-trot, mall-style!
Mall of America: A Melting Pot of Flavors
The Mall of America boasts an array of international cuisines under one roof. Craving Thai? Head to Mai Thai for fiery pad Thai and fragrant curries. Feeling Italian? Olive Garden beckons with hearty pasta dishes and cheesy goodness. Or, take a trip to Japan with Benihana’s teppanyaki theatrics and sizzling hibachi grills.
Remember the American classics! From juicy burgers at Wahlburgers to finger-lickin’ good BBQ at Famous Dave’s, there’s something to satisfy every craving. And for a sweet ending, stop by Hershey’s Chocolate World for a Willy Wonka-worthy experience.
Fine Dining Diversions
More than All of America will be needed to palate with upscale options when a casual meal doesn’t suffice. Twin Cities Grill serves succulent steaks and fresh seafood, while Mitchell Road Social House offers a modern take on American comfort food. For a touch of elegance, побалуйте себя (treat yourself!) to Russian caviar and blinis at Tsar Nicholas II.
Mall of Africa: A Safari of Savory Delights
Immerse your taste buds in the vibrant flavors of Africa. Spur Steak Ranch offers hearty South African fare like grilled boerewors and melktert, while Moyo Restaurant’s Ethiopian curries and injera flatbreads are a delightful explosion of spice.
