Andale! Tasty Mex take-out in Belmont Market
Since last fall, there's been a hole-in-the-wall (literally!) Mexican take-out joint in the back of the Belmont Market that's been serving up spicy fish tacos, burritos, and veggie delights almost completely under the radar. That's by design, according to owner Saras Pruitt, who chose to keep a low profile while she smoothed out the kinks with her little eatery called Andale!
A Charlottesville native who spent her early years in the Yogaville community of Buckingham County, Pruitt says she wanted to do something like this for years, so she walked away from her job as an insurance broker to make and sell the food she has always liked making at home.
"So far, it's just been word of mouth," says Pruitt of her advertising efforts. "And it's going pretty well."
In about a month or so, she says she plans to take her one-woman show from Monticello Avenue to the Downtown Mall with a mobile cart, and while it's currently cash only inside her Belmont Market location, she'll soon accept credit cards. Right now, hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11:30am to 4pm.
In addition to beef, shrimp, and fish, Pruitt says she has vegetarian options as well, like BBQ tofu.
"I love this kind of food," she says.
