Suga Taster, Kimmy’s Breakdown!
During Love in the Time of Corona, many of us bought snacks we know we should stay away from, then binge ate them. Me? GUILTY!
After one week of this I was craving something healthy, but different. THE PLANTRY had been popping up on my Instagram and I took this opportunity to give them a try.
Their plant-based food options change weekly. Soups, salads, main dishes and sweet treats. You order and pay online, which helps significantly with reducing human interaction, and the food can be delivered or you can pick it up.
I ordered on Instagram, received an email with the invoice and made payment via squareup.com.
The menu was titled, ‘An Ode to Mexico’ the day that I ordered.
For JMD $1400, I got a small Split Pea Soup and Prickly Salad, a Nopales (type of cactus) Burrito, Elote (Mexican Grilled Corn) and Non-Dairy Mango Ice cream. A starter, main course and dessert for $1,400! Value for money already.
I decided to pick up the order myself because I needed a little drive out after watching too much Corona news. I was promised it would be ready at noon. I got there at 1pm and it still wasn’t ready. For damage control she made me a small Jerked Jackfruit plus Bean Wrap with fresh Mango Chutney. It was so tasty that I actually stopped half way so I could give the other half to my boyfriend. All of a sudden, instead of anxiously waiting I was patiently and excitedly anticipating receiving my order.
At 2pm I was delving into my meal, so apologies, but no pics. The Soup, Salad, Elote and Burrito were DIVINE! Tasty, flavourful and filling!
So good I would definitely order again, but do delivery instead and plan for the delay.
What happened to the Ice-cream? The Ice-cream was not ready until two days later. Smooth and refreshing; as sweet as the perfect mango.
If you’re in office and still tied to a restricted Lunch time, this may not be for you. If you’re working from home, THE PLANTRY is definitely worth your time. Just mentally prepare for a possibly long wait.
