Mayan ‘Taste of the Tropics’ Restaurant Is Now Open
Check out what’s ‘cookin’ at the NEW Zoo!
Bring your ferocious appetite with you the next time you pay a visit to NEW Zoo-the Mayan ‘Taste of the Tropics’ restaurant is now open and the menu is something to roar about! After a summer of construction and a fall filled with careful menu planning and item selection, visitors are raving-about the food and the facility. A great deal of attention was paid to ensure that prices were kept affordable and healthy food options where offered including salads and wraps in addition to the scrumptious staples like monster hamburgers, hot dogs, loaded nachos and mozzarella monkey tails. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy a slice our own fresh, homemade pizza either-it’s amazing and a new feature for the restaurant.
The zoo’s Master Plan included the provision for a Mayan-themed eatery within the center of the park. And, that’s precisely where you’ll find this majestic 4,500 sq ft building which features seating for 100 indoors and ample outdoor tables peacefully perched next to the trumpeter swan pond. Harkening a Mayan temple and boasting ceilings as high as 30ft in the dining area, the building beckons visitors from just about everywhere. Better yet, diners have a gorgeous panoramic view of many exhibits including the giraffes and their feeding platform, the Great Plains area, the African wattled cranes and the river otters. It’s the perfect way to enjoy the zoo!
The Taste of the Tropics will be a great place for corporate meetings, after hour rentals and, of course, general admission visitors to sit a spell and enjoy a new experience at their zoo.
