Most restaurants have always offered takeout, as the industry was forced to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic, dining in became dining out. When restaurants were forced to close their dining rooms they had to get creative. Some have created special meal kits others have created take condensed take-out menus and others have offered their regular menu with discounts for pick up and such.
I had to switch my almost nightly eating out in restaurants to eating takeout at home. One way of keeping your favourite restaurants in business is to purchase takeout meals now. Whether you had been dining out nightly or once a week, you can do the same from home. This is one of the ways to keep the restaurants, cafes and bakeries and such going along with their suppliers and their staff.
Here is one of the restaurants takeout offerings that I have experienced recently.
Takeout at Cardero’s Restaurant
Sablefish dinner for two, plus key lime tarts! Every weekend from Friday – Sunday the restaurant is offering a takeout special dinner for two that includes dessert for a special price. This weekend their special is $69 and you get Two Sablefish filets, miso, sake, soy and lime marinade with coconut jasmine rice, snap peas, broccolini, bell peppers & miso-ginger vinaigrette and two Key lime tarts for dessert. We both enjoyed last nights dinner and the tender buttery sablefish. Each weekend their takeout dinner for two will change, check out their instagram early each week and then pre-book for weekend pick-up!
They are offering their weekend special dinner ordering for Takeout, call them at 604-669-7666 to place an order for pick-up.
