Local eats: Send-a-chef

Being an entrepreneur I like to support local businesses. I ordered from a local business in the city of Richmond where I live called send a chef. I ordered the seafood platter. Now you definitely get bang for your buck. My entire meal came to 17.99 but it left some things to be desired. For one the online menu is very confusing and the prices are not accurate. the seafood platter comes with two large pieces of fried fish, fried shrimp, and a crab cake. You also get your choice of two sides and roll or cornbread. I have to say I enjoyed the fish profusely. I wish there was a bit more seasoning but tasty. the shrimp were cooked pretty well. The crab cake was more stuffing than crab and a bit on the burnt side. For my sides, I chose mac and cheese and collard greens. The greens were good, again needed a bit more seasoning but they had a great earthy flavor that I liked. My mac and cheese was just cheese and noodles. It lacked the seasoning and cheesy gooey consistency that I look for in mac and cheese. If I had to rate my experience with send a chef I would give them a sound three and a half. Now I would love for everybody to go out and support your local eateries because that’s how we get to National status. Until then happy eating.
