There’s 3 New Food Options Inside the Maine Mall
Coming out of the pandemic, there were portions of the Maine Mall that began to look a little bleak. One of the hardest hit spots in the mall was the food court. Several restaurants have closed in recent years, from national chains like Qdoba and Arby's, to less notable local joints like Kamasouptra and Linda Bean's. Those vacancies in a busy section of the mall weren't going to stay empty for long, and now there's three new food options for shoppers to enjoy.
The Fries Shop
The Fries Shop is located next to Panda Express and doesn't leave any guesses as to what they serve. They offer up Maine potatoes turned into Belgian fries. They have signature menu options including turning your fries into traditional poutine, nacho style fries, or even Korean street fries. They also offer a la carte options where you can smother your fries in everything from Mac and cheese to fire grilled hotdogs.
Tacos La Poblanita
Located in between Soul Food Paradise and the Fries Shop, Tacos La Poblanita opened in late July. The brick-and-mortar location is an extension of the popular food truck and offers up a menu filled with authentic Mexican cuisine. There offerings include a signature shrimp taco, a California burrito, two enchilada options, as well as quesadillas. Don't sleep on their desserts, either.
Boba (Coming Soon)
Opening in front of Round 1 where Linda Bean's Lobster Boat Cafe once existed, Boba serves up a mix of casual Vietnamese and Thai fare. Their location in Lewiston has become extremely popular, and their mall kiosk will carry some of their best-selling items. That includes bubble milk tea and some smaller street food quick bites.
