Unlimited Everything for $40
Pomergranate guacamole, tres leches oatmeal, al pastor pad thai, liquid cheesecake, chorizo migas, margaritas and mimosas. For two hours, I gorged on continuous and unlimited small plates, desserts and drinks at the Asian/Mexican fusion restaurant, Sumo Maya, in Scottsdale. I knew that this would be a marathon session of eating so I prepared accordingly. Comfortable clothes with a loose waist (check). Staying hydrated (check). Not filling up on bread (check). Not taking up valuable real estate in my stomach with a dish I didn’t particularly care for (check).
The atmosphere is super relaxed, and I loved that the servers don’t push you to wrap it up so they can flip the table. You can graze and lounge while you eat, order as much or as little, and taste this or that. I tried a Michelada for the first time and hated it. I’m not a fan of Bloody Mary’s either, as they taste like the old ketchup packets you find under the seat in you car. Euckkk (Pusha T voice)!
The pomegranate seeds were a lovely complement to the creamy avocado in the guac and we ate three bowls of it. Contrary to popular belief, this is one dish that was elevated by white people adding raisins (insert joke here). Also, I would have never thought to put al-pastor pork with pad thai but it was a winner! Spicy, sweet and slightly acidic, with perfectly textured noodles. By the end, I waddled out of the restaurant in a food coma and went to Neimans (and felt like my best self and all my chakras were aligned).
