Shantell's food

For real? Meatless
collards and peas?

SHANTELL'S JUST UNTIL
Here's a challenge for West Volusia soul-food restaurants. We stopped in downtown Sanford and found Shantell's Just Until, at 503 Sanford Avenue. Their collards and the black-eyed peas have zero meat in them, and they are delicious!  Also on the menu was fried catfish nuggets and ”macabella,” a slightly spicy macaroni and cheese, drizzled with balsamic and served on a Portabella mushroom.
