We geddit guys, sometimes eating well when you’re busy is HARD and the thought of cooking a healthy, nutritious and different meal every night of the week seems near dang impossible.
Lucky for us, there’s some pretty cool kids in town that understand this dilemma! These clever people are ensuring that cooking good-for-you, delicious and impressive food is a breeze while others are completely taking the hard work out of it for you.
Put down the takeaway menu—here are our fave five food delivery services in Perth.
The new kids on the block, Lunch Ladies is a lunch delivery service for Perth office building workers. Launched by Sara Dean earlier this year, the Lunch Ladies team create one fresh nutritious lunch special every day (Monday to Thursday), using seasonal ingredients sourced from local markets or direct from the garden. Each morning they share a photo of that day’s lunch on social media and bam, all you have to do is order by 10.30am for delivery to your work at lunchtime. Easy peasy! Lunch Ladies chef Daisy Jarvis (who is also a personal trainer) designs every lunch with nutrition in mind so you know you’ll be eating only the best when you book your lunch. A fave at TUL HQ, lunches range from honey mustard beef with slaw, to corn and chilli fritters and beef rissoles with cous cous and beetroot tzatziki. Nom!
This Little Pig Went To Market
Sourcing ingredients from some of Perth’s best suppliers (including Frank Torres Butchers, Effes Bakery bread and Duck Duck Mother Goose relish) This Little Pig Went To Market owners Jessica and Katherine Kerr are passionate about helping time-poor people discover their love of cooking good quality, fresh meals using exceptional WA produce. Order for delivery on a Wednesday or a Saturday and you’ll be greeted to an incredible box full of produce where everything you need is included, from marinated meats to dressings to veggies and herbs. All you have to do is follow the cute instructions included and you will have a beautiful (and insta worthy!) meal ready in around 30 minutes. Meals range from souvlaki greek lamb wraps with home-made tzatziki, to panko chicken schnitzel with orange and beetroot salad, to fresh linguine with braised beef meatballs. Side note: these girls have a gorgeous blog on their site and a drool-worthy Instagram!
You Plate It
How does a butter-basted hanger steak, with roasted asparagus, mushrooms and hasselback potatoes sound for a mid-week dinner? This is the sort of #foodenvy meal you could be sitting down to if you order with Perth dinner delivery service, You Plate It. Offering a stress-free solution that allows you to get dinner on the table for less than $11 per serve, the crew here send you ingredients in exact portions and easy to follow recipe cards so you can cook up some tasty meals without the hassle of food shopping. Handpacking everything into biodegradable insulated packaging and delivering on a Sunday arvo ready for the week ahead, you can choose two or four meals from the six weekly recipes, then just store and refrigerate the ingredients until you’re ready to cook! Too easy.
Choose from either the family box (which includes plenty of classics the whole fam will love) or the slightly more fancy-pants foodie box, and Dinner Twist will deliver you a box of fresh, seasonal produce with matching recipes that will feed you for four meals. The meals are all tried and perfected in the Dinner Twist test kitchen, have the tick from a nutritionist and take 20-45 minutes to cook and plate. Perfect for those that have a really busy week ahead, foodie boxes include incred meals like jerk chicken with pineapple salad, crumbed salmon with fennel salad, or beef keema with dahl. Delivered on a Monday evening (north of the river) or Tuesday evening (south of the river), your box of fresh produce contains a step by step recipe booklet which will have you whipping up impressive and creative meals in no time. Yasss!
