Mall Of America, Minnesota

Venturing out this weekend and landed at the Mall of America. It wasn’t nice weather so what better place to get some walking in! There are always changes being made to the restaurants and shops and this time we found Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville had opened up. Not that busy for a Saturday so we were seated right away. After that the service was slow.

The menu was not that big: 4 burger choices, 4 sandwich choices, 4 salad choices . . you see the trend? Sometimes not having that many choices makes it harder to decide what to order! I went with the fish sandwich described as that Catch of The Day (whatever that was). For $15.99 it had no flavor, no zip, nothing special. BORING!

My husband ordered the fish tacos, again with the Catch of the Day, which was a surprise since he is a burger guy. The plate looked really good, but he, too, said it was tasteless and boring. For $16.99 you would think it would have something to say for it! He also got a strawberry lemonade that was actually pretty good, had some bits of fresh strawberries in it.

The overall impression was BORING! There you go . . . another celebrity who has no business being in the restaurant industry.

Flew off to Dallas, Texas to visit family over the weekend. Yes, it was hot but it was hot at home and I don’t have a pool! Fabulous visit and fabulous food!

Lunch time! The choice for lunch was a kitchy place in Little Elm called the Hula Hut. Offering a mix of Mexican and Polynesian cuisine in a restaurant on the banks Lewisville Lake. Who would have imagined a fusion cuisine of tacos, fajitas & luau platters plus tropical cocktails under a thatched-roof pier with lake views, and erupting volcano and a waterboard park?

Not having any idea what to order the menu can be overwhelming. With the guidance of family I chose the Veggie Tubular Taco, with chicken of course. The platter was more than enough for one person but I managed to eat it all. For $10.99 it was well worth it!Hula menu

There is endless homemade chips and salsa. The chips were nice and thin and crunchy. The salsa was okay since I do like a hot salsa rather than a mild. Finished off with a really tall glass of lemonade for that 90 degree day. The Hut is extremely family friendly with garage doors that open up to let the breeze filter through.

If you are ever in the Dallas area do take a drive to the Hula Hut. I highly recommend it.
