Taqueria Mal Pan is a modern Mexican experience. Our chef-driven menu is a combination of both the modern and classic Mexican kitchen. You’ll experience a menu with inspiration from Baja to Yucatan and everywhere in between. In step with the theme of our kitchen, the beverage program at Mal Pan is also inspired by the old and the new. Our back bar is filled with a curated list of artisan spirits from the US, Mexico, the Caribbean and beyond. All of our craft cocktails are concocted with housemade syrups, fresh squeezed juices, shrubs, bitters and instagram worthy garnishes

    I was disappointed with Mal Pan last night. The good: Our waiter was very courteous and was doing the best job he could under the circumstances. My tacos were delicious (although my husband said his bowl wasn't good). The bad: we had a reservation for 7:45 and were only seated by 8. The place was very full, basically at capacity and It's understandable that we'd be seated a bit later than expected. However, our food took a very long time. I believe we only started eating at around 9:35 pm. And the restaurant ran out of rice. My dish was supposed to have a side of rice and beans. The waiter told us, and I asked to substitute the rice for vegetables. He offered to substitute with plantains and I accepted. Then the plantains didn't come with the dish. When asked about them, the waiter said he'd have to charge extra for them... Honestly at the moment I didn't think too deeply about this, but if they ran out of rice and he offered to sub rice with plantains, why was he charging extra? We paid and left, but it made no sense. It's too bad this happened, as it left us with a bad experience. Because I actually really like their home-made tortillas. But from now on I'll think twice about going there on a busy night.

    The margherita's were excellent! The guacamole was very good too. I had the Mal Pan Bowl and added chicken. It was delicious but the chicken could have been added as a topping in slices instead of cubes. Great ambiance and seating outside. My dog was welcomed and we all had fun.
