VISITING a LUXURY MALL in MEXICO ! PLAZA ANDARES- GUADALAJARA (Gringo in Mexico Vlog)
What is going on members of the Barrio It’s Jon coming to you from Americana Our neighborhood in Guadalajara And today instead of a travel/tourism style video We’re just going to go the mall instead There’s a mall I’ve really wanted to check out A few people suggested I head there It’s called Andares It’s on the other side of the city So we’ve got to call an Uber And we’re going to find out what are malls like.. In Mexico? Is the mall your favorite place in Mexico? No.. Definitley no But we heard a lot of things about this one I want to check it out Definitely Anything you want to buy? I heard there is a Farmers market And I really want to see that Because I love farmers markets Our Uber is here Hola We’ve just arrived here And my first impressions.. are This is a seriously luxurious place This is what I would imagine a mall Somewhere like Dubai would be like. Just really widespread And they have all these.. Premium brands Burberry.. Hugo Boss And we haven’t really even gone inside yet Is this is a lot bigger than you expected to? Yes definitely.. It’s like two sides Stores and restaurants It’s to big.. It’s kind of overwhelming yeah.. I don’t know what direction to go.. I don’t know where to begin either.. This is what you wanted to come here for The farmers market until 2 PM I’ve never seen a farmers market.. In a mall food court before Me neither.. It’s the first time.. I think i’m excited I want to see it She’s been here two seconds And already she sees something That she wants to eat What a surprise I just sampled empanadas Brownies.. These really nice breads I don’t know how you could possibly go to the food court here When you have this amazing farmers market.. right over my left shoulder There are some really really cool booths here The food court actually has quite a few chains You’ll find in the United States Like Carls Jr. Sbarro Popeyes down there Burger king Really nothing that exciting for me in the food court We’re going to eat lunch we’re going to eat something at the farmers market for sure I got tacos al vapor Which I don’t know what that means But they look good so.. They’re with mushrooms Two mushrooms and one meat.. I’m really excited for these empanadas Because I used to eat these all the time When I lived in Buenos Aires for a couple of months The guy who sold them is from Argentina About 25 pesos each I got one vegaterian And one carne Delicious guys.. delicious Go find the empanada guy.. tell him I said hi We’re leaving the farmers market And if I had to make one complaint It’s a silly complaint Is that.. It was so healthy Almost too healthy I was looking for a regular brownie And all I saw was gluten free stuff I wanted a gluten full brownie I could not find one But outside of that It was really really cool Guys I finally found something I’ve never seen At a mall in the United States At least not in the New York area A casino I just don’t know how happy they’d be if I filmed inside of here You’re used to seeing casinos at the mall? Yes.. I mean not all the malls But i’ve seen them before Is that how it works? You gamble and then you go spend your winnings on clothing? Yes.. It’s a good idea. Definitely I want them all I have to say this is probably the least Mexican thing I could be doing with my Saturday Going to a mall.. In fact this is definitely An influence from the United States But as far as malls in the U.S are concerned This is one of the best malls I’ve ever been to For sure.. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate A store full of candy It smells so good Whoever designed this mall Knew exactly what they were doing Because they put all of these relaxing Little pools of water everywhere Plenty of places for kids to run around And then.. You realize oh yeah.. There’s some shops I can go to also It was very well designed here. It looks like you. It’s me? It’s the first time I’ve seen a mall with a playground In the middle Now we’re going to go where any reasonable person Would go.. If they were at this mall At this hour We’re going to go the VIP Movie theater And check out the new Liam Neeson movie This is like a first class seat on an airplane The movie just let out If you’re curious about the VIP movie experience We did a whole video about this in Merida And for the record I thought the movie the commuter Was pretty bad Liam Neeson is a great actor He’s the only reason it was even tolerable Don’t watch it. At least not in the movie theater Just wait until it’s on netflix So you can enjoy it there.. What do you think are the differences between U.S Malls and Mexican Malls Honestly I don’t see a big difference The structure of the mall.. they have a food quarter? How do you say that? Food court Food court.. They have the stores around They have a movie theater Maybe the only difference that I noticed before.. Is the casino? That’s it.. Alright members of the Barrio We are about to head back This is a very luxurious mall You can see by the stores You can see by the set up here I am impressed I’m not someone that goes to the mall very often But.. I guess it’s nice to know that his place exists At a minimum for that VIP Movie theater Although we’re going to pick a better movie next time Tell me in the comments Have you been to malls in Mexico before? What do you think are the differences Are between malls in Mexico and malls in the U.S Make sure to subscribe if you are new to this channel We’ve got a lot more coming up From Guadalajara Thank you so much for watching Until next time Can you fall like that one more time? No..
