Meenu from Pizza n Pasta Planet is often busy whipping up authentic, Italian-style meals for her customers. Meenu took some time out of her busy schedule to chat to us about what makes the store so special and help us learn a little more about her.
Pizza n Pasta Planet have a lot of dedicated customers, and it’s easy to see why. Meenu recalled a particular time that she made a customer’s day, and that they made hers too!
“A lady called and asked if we could deliver pizzas for her kids who, at the time, were home alone. She said she would come during the evening to pay, and we agreed. Later that day, she came to pay for the pizzas and to express her gratitude. She was very appreciative and even gave us a chocolate bar which made my day.”
With so many dishes to choose from on the menu, we had to ask Meenu for some order recommendations. For these colder months, Meenu suggests any of their delicious pastas. she also mentioned that “our garlic baked potato with a pinch of herbs would be perfect for the cold winter.”
We also put this very difficult question to Meenu: What would she choose if she could only eat one thing from Pizza n Pasta Planet for the rest of her life? “I would love to eat The Lot pizza,” she said. “It fulfills my want for both meat and vegetables.”
When she’s not busy in the restaurant, Meenu enjoys shopping at the other stores in Castle Plaza. One of her favourite food retailers in the Centre (besides their own, of course!) is Chatime. “It’s right next to us and I really enjoy all of their refreshing drinks,” Meenu said.
One of Meenu’s favourite memories in the Centre came just after Pizza n Pasta Planet opened. “We enjoyed when kids would come to our store around Christmas, and we would give them Candy Cones. Some of them even came back just for the Christmas candy. We liked seeing the smiles on their faces.”
Finally, Meenu told us a few things that make the Pizza n Pasta Planet so special. “We have a great dining space where people can come and spend quality time. We can cater to everyone’s dietary requirements, whether this be halal, vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free, and our authentic pizzas feel and taste homemade.”
So, when you’re craving a hearty meal in this cold weather, make sure you visit Meenu and the team at Pizza n Pasta Planet. They source all produce locally where possible, and by ordering with them, you’ll be supporting local too!
