Angie's Buckets:

Seafood by the Bucket

TAKEOUT SERVICE SEAFOOD SOUTHERN LAVAL <$60

The Pitch

Since the start of the pandemic, a colony of new food businesses has sprouted out of nowhere.  With people relying on takeout excessively more, new opportunities have emerged for restaurant workers and passionate cooks to feed these masses.  Without incurring the cost of a commercial storefront, some of these operations have set up professional ghost kitchens while others are simply home based.

As for the product these services are putting forth, it is as varied and diverse as can be.  From crowd-pleasers such as pizza, brunch boxes and desserts to niche items such as samosas, charcuterie boards and even halal (!) charcuterie boards, the options are truly endless.

One particular Instagram account drew my attention and looked like the perfect candidate for a Mothers Day treat.  It is not often you see a Southern-style seafood boil served in Montreal let alone delivered to your doorstep which is precisely what Angie's Buckets specializes in.

The Food

This home-based Laval business was launched a mere two months ago by a Ms. Angie, an ex-food truck worker with a fondness for cooking.  While her fare is inspired by Louisiana seafood boils, her selection of shellfish which includes lobster and crab is wider and her buttery broth uses a secret mix of Caribbean and Italian seasoning.

Her buckets are in fact served in aluminum pans unless you double up on quantities and come in boiled or fried format.  Portions are quite large, which makes it great to share your meal with others.  Orders can be complemented with Southern staples such as tater tots, cheese biscuits and cornbread.

The Verdict

As with most battered and fried food items, the shrimp and calamari while tasty did not withstand the long drive from Laval to Westmount and arrived a little soggy.  The boil, on the other hand, remained nice and warm sealed up in its plastic bag.  The shellfish tasted fresh, while the corn and baby potatoes soaked up that slurp-worthy broth which you'll want to mop up until the end!

All in all, Angie is suggesting an original concept for home which certainly satisfied mother, father and child alike on this Mothers Day.
