Pumpkin Labs.

Pumpkin Labs is a delivery-based cloud kitchen focused on healthy food. On the good side, they're quite friendly on the wallet and includes no artificial flavours or preservatives, but in terms of flavour, they have a very long way to go. 

The Food

The Pumpkin Lab whips up some bowls of soup, rice, salad, wraps and pizza. At a glance, it looks quite interesting, so we ordered a Buffalo Chicken Wrap (Rs. 350), Golden Protein Rice Bowl with Teriyaki Chicken (Rs. 480) and a Red Rubino Pizza (Rs. 1300) with Seafood (Rs. 70).

The Buffalo Chicken Wrap featured a homemade, whole grain wrap, slathered with a dressing of your choice (Chilli Mayonnaise or Hummus & Tahini, we picked the latter) and stuffed with chunks of bell pepper, lettuce, onion, tomato, and chicken tossed in homemade buffalo sauce.

It was extremely leaky and kept spilling all over the plate. The chicken flavour was almost non-existent, as the other elements, especially the sweet-tasting sauce overpowered everything. 

We couldn't eat more than two bites of this Red Rubino Pizza. It was salty as hell. While it has a gluten-free, red lentil crust, we don't think eating this much salt is healthy in any way.

Slathered with tomato sauce and homemade mozzarella, the crust was crispy and thin. It had a lot of veggies too – tomato sauce, bell pepper, tomato, onion, capsicum, and a few basil leaves. We also spotted a few pieces of prawns and cuttlefish. 

This is the Golden Protein Rice Bowl with Teriyaki Chicken. Packed with a good amount of chickpeas, kidney beans, sweet corn, green peas, beans, carrots and onions, the rice had a fluffy texture.

However, there wasn't a lot of flavour to it; it tasted like plain rice. The chicken itself was quite dry, and the homemade Teriyaki sauce they use to sautee it, had no significant flavour either. We got a salty undertone, which comes from the drizzle of soy sauce. 

Conclusion

We're not sure whether it was a bad day at the kitchen, but unfortunately, we couldn't make a meal out of what we ordered. There was a lot of leftovers. The pizza wasn't edible in any way, the wrap was overly sweet, and the only thing we could eat was the rice; just a few spoonfuls of it. We sincerely hope that they'd reshape their flavours.
