Menulog & a Giveaway

When my parents returned home from Europe, naturally they found the fridge empty. Hungry, tired and jetlagged, we needed a quick, fuss-free solution for dinner that night.

Enter Menulog to the rescue!  I’d seen their ads on the bus numerous times, and after many persistent emails, I had finally decided to take up their offer to do a review of this online food delivery service.

With more than 4,200 restaurants listed on their website, I’m was more than delighted to find my favourite restaurant, Khao Pla, was one of them. I took my parents there on Father’s Day and even my ever picky dad enjoyed it. So picking out the restaurant was a pretty stress-free affair, as was the whole process!

All you have to do is,

1) Head to the Menulog website

2) Enter your postcode and a list of restaurants closeby will be generated

3) Choose your restaurant

4) Choose your dish(es) (the hardest part of this whole process)

5) Check out, enter delivery address and payment details.

6) Sit back, chill and wait for your meal to be served.

An SMS text is sent confirming the order is received and an estimated delivery time. I even got a call from Khao Pla within a few minutes about the heat of my green curry.

Et voila, within the estimated delivery time, our doorbell chimed and our dinner was here! No cooking and no washing required.

As always, Khao Pla never fails to impress.
