Let’s All Stop Cooking!

It’s a hot Summer anyways, and you can have your food delivered in a Cadillac

A new company has come to town and it promises to be a winner. The Good Food Company is run by two friends, Alberto and Alvaro, both from El Salvador, and Alberto’s much better half Claudia.

Alberto is an entrepreneur with a short time living in Cabo, while Alvaro owns a restaurant in El Salvador. Alberto and Claudia felt stressed daily on what to feed their family of four (and Olivia, their friendly female mix-Beagle) every day and decided that helping others by providing them with a great choice of meals at their front door could work if they felt as stressed.

Their menu consists of 29 dishes including soups and salads, main course, side dishes and vegetables, with prices ranging from 60 pesos (about $3 bucks) to 275 pesos (about $15 bucks) with the latter being a Grilled beef tenderloin with sautéed mushrooms and herb butter. That’s what I call affordable food. The meal comes accompanied with home-made pita bread. And it’s all damn good!

Most dishes are offered for a minimum of 4 people, with most soups and salads for a minimum of 6, and the mac n’ cheese for a minimum of 12. The portions are so plentiful that we ended up with leftovers for another day!

In our first try, we ordered the traditional Caesar Salad, Creole (Cajun) shrimp pasta salad, Roasted veggies (peppers, eggplant, zucchini and mushrooms in a balsamic vinaigrette) antipasto and Fire-roasted bone-in chicken thighs for six. The food containers arrived neatly arranged in a cardboard box, delivered by Alberto himself in his Cadillac SUV. While some containers are bio-degradable, others are of such good quality that you can reuse them for storage and picnics for a long time. The food comes warm and needs to be reheated if that is your choice. We only put the chicken thighs in the oven for a few minutes as the rest was good to eat cold.

The Good Food Company’s industrial kitchen is located in Los Cangrejos barrio on the outskirts of Cabo on the road to Todos Santos. Orders must be made 24 hours in advance, and your meals will be delivered the next day between 3 and 5 p.m., just in time for cocktails.
