Whoever came up with the idea of online takeaway and home delivery – you rock!
Last night was one of those nights where I just wanted dinner to effortlessly appear in my kitchen! junior burger had decided to let us sleep in which was pretty awesome considering it was a cold morning and pretty snuggly in bed. But like everything, there’s always a trade off for cool wins like this. Yep it took me a good hour and a half to get her to bed last night. After singing “Wheels on the bus” like a broken record for the millionth time, the last thing I wanted to do was cook dinner!
So it was pretty good timing that I was approached by EatNow website earlier in the week to have dinner on them – yep hassle free online ordering with no human interaction except for the delivery driver.
I’m a regular EatNow customer and often order through their website. I’ve had almost every cuisine that delivers to my area now 🙂 Last night I tried Vietnamese from Lemongrass Vietnamese & Thai Restaurant, the time before I had Nepalese from Mo:Mo’s Nepalese Restaurant and almost every other time I’ve order two servings of butter chicken, chicken tikka and heaps of naan from my favourite Saffron Indian Restaurant in Inglewood.
I received my Lemongrass order in under 45 minutes as per the SMS I received from EatNow and the delivery driver was respectful of my note to not wake junior burger on arrival. I am however pretty fussy with my Vietnamese food as my mum cooks amazing Vietnamese. I ordered rice paper rolls ($7 for two), satay chicken skewers ($8 for three), a Vietnamese caramel clay pot ($18) and honey lemon chicken (11.50) for burger boy. The rice paper rolls was the only dish I enjoyed, the others lacked flavour and the clay pot was a bit oily.
What I love about ordering through EatNow is that I get to try local restaurants that I wouldn’t have otherwise. Some are hits like MoMo and Saffron, others like last night’s dinner from Lemongrass Vietnamese & Thai Restaurant were misses but for the convenience of home delivery & not talking to anyone I’m always happy to give the newbies a go.
