Just like walking thru a market in mexico! Authentic mole, fruit drinks, tacos and hand made tortillas. No tourists the day we went. Get the popsicles-paletas. Try the guayaba fruit or the chile pepino, perfectly salty. The shops are welcoming and this would be a good place to get your cowboy boots. There is something for everyone.

I have wanted to visit Plaza Fiesta for years and it was never the right time. Finally stopped there with my daughters on a girls day out and it was everything I hoped it would be. It reminded me so much of the mercados of the Mexico border towns I have visited. There were several restaurants in a food court plus a few more in tucked away spaces. There were several snack vendors as well. Then booths and vendors selling just about everything imaginable along with a couple big discount stores. We can't wait to return and sample more of the food vendors.

Shopping is a bit like a flea market, but dive right in and have fun! They offer a whole range of everything Latino, so go and immerse yourself and feel like you've gone to Mexico for the day.

Every time our family goes here, it is like taking a trip to a whole new world. The language and culture is very reflective of Mexico, and seeing all of the items sold in the booths is so much fun. Besides getting a good deal, you'll have so much fun. There is also a HUGE indoor play structure for children that is entertaining in and of itself. If you can dodge going on a weekend, you'll avoid the bigger crowds and can spend more time soaking in the atmosphere. It really is a fun activity,

One of my favorite things about Atlanta, is its pockets of ethnicity and charm. A distinct element of any culture is their food and Americans have come to embrace the foods of other cultures as we do its people. My lunch buddy Angel and I, had a wonderful experience going to Plaza Fiesta for lunch and then returning again for more. I love this place, because it is a part of the story that makes up America. When I grew up in Atlanta, Lenox was the only mall that I remember. Northlake Mall came along, followed by Perimeter Mall and a whole host of other, smaller shopping malls sprouted up too. Unfortunately, for many malls their lifespan is often cut short. The overall economy has a huge effect, but also local economic and demographic changes take their toll as well. Plaza Fiesta, in the spirit of Atlanta, is a phoenix that rose from the ashes as is now a model of gentrification for today’s shopping centers. Today, Plaza Fiesta is a vibrant epicenter of the Hispanic community proclaiming the tagline “El rinconcito de neustro pueblo” which means “The corner of our town”. Combining shopping, fun activities, and dining; Plaza Fiesta brings the mall experience with a distinctly Latin flair. If you don’t speak Spanish, don’t let that stop you from going! Much of the signage is in both English and Spanish (but not all), and merchants generally speak enough English to allow you to make a transaction. Angel and I made a quick walk around Plaza Fiesta before making our way back to the food court. I should also add as part of my research, I found a brilliant article on Creative Loafing, A newbie’s guide to eating at Plaza Fiesta by Brad Kaplan. Thanks, Brad! Your article helped us tremendously. We got started at Je Mar Cevicheria. If you aren’t familiar with ceviche, you’re in for a real treat. Served cold, the seafood of your choice is cooked by the acidity of either lemon or lime juice. Mixed with cilantro, sliced tomatoes, and avocado, it’s a real delight and this ceviche is some of the best! At $3.75 each, its also a fantastic bargain! Enchiladas Enchiladas Carnitas Carnitas Carnitas Michoacan Carnitas Michoacan Next, we ventured to the outside of the mall to Carnitas Michoacan where I ordered the Enchiladas Michoacan which is served asada and fried potatoes. The asada is a thinly sliced steak, difficult to prepare correctly because its so easy to make this thin steak though. This was done nicely though – very easy to chew and eat, with a nice flavor. I enjoyed the potatoes as well, not greasy and done thoroughly. I was disappointed in the enchiladas though as they didn’t have much flavor. I should have paid closer attention to Brad’s article. #smile Finally, we stopped at Squisito Pastelería & Café (pastelería means “pastry shop” in English). I spotted a Chocolate Oreo cake on our travels and had to go back for dessert. One thing I might add to our visit is to bring your VISA card because many places do not take American Express. Plaza Fiesta is an absolute blast! This is about as close as you can get to going south of the border without boarding Delta. Viva Plaza Fiesta! Guten appetit!
