As lockdown was about to start, I had a quick craving of Pizza Hut and had to get it.
Since then, I was surprised that in eight weeks I have only had takeaway/delivery only three times.
Delivery of fast food since lockdown has changed, mainly due to options being limited (restaurants closed and Enfield options aren't the greatest), but also because, as I am home more and I have more time to cook.
I take pride in being able to experiment, not wanting to waste food and using all of my cook books too.
Below is a quick review of the three takeaways that I have had in the last eight weeks.
This was an order from my wife. We haven't had Indian food for a while, so this option came up and we went for it.
We went for some of our usual faves such as a Mixed Grill, Butter Chicken and Sag aloo. All pleased the three of us (3 year old boy too) and we even had some leftovers the next day.
Local turkish kebab. New to Deliveroo and an important cuisine in the area.
Mixed grill for the family was ordered at just over £25 (delivery included). The meat was lovely, my favourite part was the lamb cubes.
This was an ideal portion. I was secretly hoping for more, just so that I could eat the leftovers the next day.
Lulu's Caribbean Cuisine
This was a birthday treat and was the only one that I actually travelled and collected.
On the order was their BBQ ribs, Jerk Chicken, BBQ chicken and mac and cheese. This was a delight from start to the finish. Great sized portions great taste and lasted us for three meals.
A special birthday from a special restaurant. Well worth the travel.
