I got a message from Candy 2 days ago about the small Mexican food cart in Shangri-la’s 4th floor closing down
It’s been around for 18 years, I knew it back then as Tummy Ticklers. My siblings and I would go there after spending an afternoon at the old Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum. Fun times!! Shangri-la has always been my family’s go-to mall since we were little kids. Tummy Ticklers/Taco Cabana/Mexicana Food Corner has been a big part of our mall experience all these years. I immediately messaged Maxx and we decided to go with Clara. I met up with them at my mom’s condo near Shangri-la.
The three of us walked to the mall and went straight to the food stall.
It sold more than just Mexican bites – they’ve got imported chocolates and candies and even a few cosmetic products.
The food stall doesn’t even serve exceptionally great Mexican snacks. I guess there’s just a sense of nostalgia and comfort in their corn dogs, cheese puppies, and “natchos”
When I asked why they were closing down, they said they would no longer be able to pay rent at the mall. Oh well. It was great knowing ya! An Instagram follower of mine commented that they’ve extended until May 10 but I can’t confirm that. From what I know, today’s their last day so if you share a bond with the food stall like we do, I suggest you go today and tickle your tummy before it closes down!
Mexicana Food Corner is located at the 4th floor of Shangri-la Plaza Mall, right beside Sabrett and Toys R Us.
