Puerto Rican Pantry | Ships Nationally
For anyone who loves to cook or just is missing a few spice-drawer staples, Addo will come in handy. They’re selling homemade sazón, spicy sazón, sofrito, adobo, spicy adobo, annatto oil, and more - even a sazón-scented candle to keep the kitchen smelling great long after cooking. Anything from their Puerto Rican Pantry list that’s non-perishable can be shipped nationally, and prices start at $8 - check it out on their website.
“Addo is less a restaurant and more of an experience. In the Before Times, this ticketed dinner offered everything from a multi-course Spam tasting menu to an Oregon Trail-inspired dinner game. When the pandemic hit, they didn’t stop at simply switching to takeout - though they do have some incredible Puerto Rican dishes to-go. Addo also started offering produce subscriptions, virtual group cooking classes, holiday tasting menus, a wine club, and more. And when the Goya boycott went down, chef and owner Eric Rivera offered nationwide shipping of his homemade Puerto Rican seasonings. But quite possibly the best thing about these pivots is that some of the experiences even include Zoom links, just so customers can hang out with each other and the staff while eating.”
