After a few months of an aggressive campaign via both email and fliers from MealPal, I decided to go ahead and try it out.
My finances meant I needed to not spend between £5 and £10 every lunch time. I needed to check my expenses and reign in my spending.
The MealPal offer (there seems to be one every week), was to sign up to have 20 meals for just over £50. So this was the equivalent of spending around £2.60 every day for lunch.
How does it work?
Every day at 5pm, an email comes in to your inbox saying that the "Kitchen is now Open". When signing up, you enter your details and address and when the Kitchen is Open a list of participating restaurants for the next day will show up.
A key point here is that each restaurant will offer a dish for you to choose from. An example is on the latest Wednesday, you could get a Patty & Bun Smokey Robinson Burger with a portion of chips. You then choose the 15 time slot you wish to pick it up and then collect it and EAT!
So my views on MealPal are below:
Overall, I would recommend MealPal to people on two pre-requisites. One, make sure you get a good offer. Ideally under £4 a meal. Secondly, make sure that you have at least 10 good options for lunch, otherwise, you will get bored of having the same things every two days.
MealPal offers you the chance to have both your favourite meals as well as new and never tried before food too. Give it a go. I am sure you will enjoy it.
