Loopy perpetrators! Chow down at Jacksonville’s Mr. Potato Unfold

If you’re walking through Regency Square Mall and your mouth isn’t watering, it will change when you reach Mr. Potato Spread in the food court.

For our first month of Coast Foodies of Black History, we’re offering a restaurant based on one ingredient: potatoes.

If you’re walking through Regency Square Mall and your mouth isn’t watering, it will change when you reach Mr. Potato Spread in the food court. They serve perpetrators like you’ve never had before.

“The crab potato is my first love,” said co-owner Lakita Spann. “I can eat the crab potato any day of the week, not always on a baked potato. Sometimes I do it on mashed potatoes, often on French fries. My favorite is the crab pot on our sweet potato.” “

Your other favorite potatoes?

“The cheesesteak or the buffalo chicken,” she said.

Most of Mr. Potato Spread’s sales go to the crab pot. It has shrimp, crab meat, smoked sausage, corn, a hard-boiled egg, Old Bay, and homemade garlic butter.

First Coast Foodies had a burning culprit question: Why potatoes?

“Potatoes are really underutilized,” said Spann. “In the ’90s, probably the early’ 90s, there was a woman here in Jacksonville who made potatoes, and she was a vegetarian.

Spann says that one day the potato lady was gone, but the seeds of an idea were already planted.

“One day is like ‘I know what to do: potatoes!'” Said Spann. “People call me the potato lady.”

What Spann learned from the menu it created is that their customers are some crazy doers.

“We made a potato that cost between $ 30 and $ 35. I think it was between $ 30 and $ 35,” said Spann. “There was probably a little bit of everything we sell, from crabs to prawns, steak, cheese, peppers and onions to broccoli.”

Spann says there’s nothing too crazy to plant a potato.

“The sky is the limit,” she said.

Don’t miss the opening of Mr. Potato Spread on Saturday February 6th at the Orange Park Mall Food Court. Visit Mr. Potato Spread’s website here.
