Here’s a local blessing to come from the curse of the pandemic — a custom vending machine for pasta and Italian desserts!
Stellina launched a refrigerated pasta vending machine offering its signature pasta kits (from cacio e pepe and pomodoro to bolognese and lamb ragu), jars of homemade sauces, fresh pastas, DIY cannoli, tiramisu, and more, stationed outside its Shirlington location (2800 S. Randolph Street, Arlington, Va. 22206).
The custom food dispenser takes credit cards and mobile payment. And if you need instruction on how to prepare your pasta kit, just watch the embedded LED screen.
Hours of operation — when the machine is stocked — are Sunday-Thursday, 10:30am-10pm, and Friday-Saturday, 10:30am-11pm.
