I saw Pachamama's on "Check Please, KC" and sighed when I saw the average tab per person . . . .one day. But, then, I started seeing their lunch tweets on Twitter, and saw that they had some really affordable things for lunch. I went Tuesday and had wonderful crab cake sliders. I enjoyed it immensely. They tweeted again and I went back to try their Ham & Cheese Sandwich with a cup of beef and barley soup. That is, by far, the BEST ham and cheese sandwich I have ever had, in my life. Quite possibly, I should never eat them again, out of respect for that sandwich. And, the soup was phenomenal. I didn't go back today . . . . and I'm feeling bad that I didn't. Obviously, I love this place. It's chic, comfortable, welcoming and affordable. If you've been waiting because you think it's out of your price range, go for lunch. -November 4, 2010

Okay, so I know that I left a review before . . . but, they keep getting better as time goes on. I can go there, and try something that has an ingredient I normally avoid like the plague and love it. I've been to dinner a couple of times. The short and sweet: the small plates are big enough to make a meal out of, if you're on a restricted budget. They have some cool snacks and appetizers that you may want to just try when you're wanting a "grown up" night out with friends, but don't want a full meal, and still are keeping an eye on your wallet. And, try the inspirations (specials). They're a great deal, but larger in portion size than the small plates. The chefs go all out to make them, well, special. Finally, two words: pomegranate caiprihina, that is as close to heaven as this girl cares to get for now. They ask my opinion about what they can do better, they ask how they can make the experience better and what I would like to see whenever I get to go there. They have great service, great food, and an awesome space. And, to top it all off, there's Prashant . . . -April 22, 2011
