The restaurant, located at 821 Main Street, allows customers to personalize their mugs with the ingredients of their choice. It specializes in soul food and seafood, including shrimp and crab. The In The Cup restaurant in East Chicago offers everything in cups for convenience, whether it’s meals, salads or desserts.
“We put anything in a cup: pizza, tacos, potatoes, popcorn,” he said. “It’s a back and forth so you can be on the go. “
Owner Kelvin Bride came up with the concept because it was always on the move.
In The Cup also offers curbside pickup, delivery and catering, including for small private parties.
“Everything is cooked to order,” he said. “You build your own cup. We have a 32 ounce king size mug and the 16 ounce regular mug. We stuff them high. Basically our promise is that we will make your cup overflow.
Guests can have breakfast in a mug, vegan food in a mug, keto food in a mug, loaded potatoes in a mug, rolled ice cream in a mug, and even foods traditionally served in cups – like elote and fruit – in a cup. Popular items include Stuffed Waffles, Pans, Shrimp, and Oatmeal and The Trinity, which combines steak, chicken, and shrimp.
“It’s a stylish place,” said Bride. “This is my hometown. I am trying to locate all of my businesses in my hometown. I want to help people and give them opportunities to have a job. My motto is to try to give people something they’ve never had before. Right now, I’m just spreading the word. I try to give hope to the people of my hometown.
So far, people have turned to the concept, and many have returned in a few days to try something else on the menu.
The In The Cup restaurant also sells coffee, tea and Frappuccino drinks.
“People love it. We even asked if some would like dishes on a plate, like nachos, ”he said. “Our customers love having their food in a cup and personalizing it. It is really a concept that shakes him up.
The In the Cup restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
