Maya Way

Maplewood's Maya Café harks back to another Loop's heyday

On our first visit, only the sopaipilla was available for dessert, but on the return trip flan had been added. We found the Maya version a bit disappointing, primarily because the caramelization had gone on too long, resulting in way too much bitterness for our taste.

About 13 wines are available, as well as a house-made sangria that was a fine fruity complement to the full-bodied and often spicy dishes, although I would have preferred it colder, perhaps even served over ice, than the (slightly less than room) temperature at which it arrived.

The Maya Café's interior, designed by local artist Bill Christman, is part Latin American, part '60s throwback.

So there are a few flaws in the new Maya Café, but the values on the menu outweigh most of them, and the Bohemian atmosphere (Hispanic music on one visit, an old Steve Miller album on the other, coupled with political discussions at adjoining tables) certainly keeps things lively. Los Mayas unidos jamas seran vencidos!
