On cold wintry days, don't you just wish you could snuggle in bed all day long? I did exactly this last Monday. The only time I got out of bed was to shower, use the toilet, get water and snacks from the kitchen, then I was back in bed with my iPad and Running Man.
But I had a problem - dinner.
Having just returned from my holiday in Malaysia, I had nothing at home to cook (that's if I even bothered to) nor any instant cup noodles left (not that I eat this often). And as you would have guessed, I was too lazy (I blame the weather!) to change and head out to takeaway.
That was when I had a lightbulb moment! *ching*
A couple of weeks back, when I was still holidaying in Malaysia, I remember being offered a $30 voucher from Menulog to try out their services. Woohoo!! I was so excited haha. Food being delivered right to my door = lazy bum's pure bliss!
You simply had to key in either your suburb/postcode (ie. mine was Melbourne), and the system will automatically generate a list of restaurants that delivers to your area.
Korean food! And I chose Soolzip Korean Restaurant because it had the most star ratings amongst the other options that came up.
I have to admit I was rather impressed with the menu; they had everything! From donburi, to noodles, to stews even, and my favourite Korean Fried Chicken! And the ordering process was so simple!
I placed the order at approximately 5.30pm and had my order delivered at 6.45pm. They arrived only a slight 5 minutes late, and that's totally understandable considering traffic and all. What I would suggest is if you're hungry, just have your order delivered earlier. ;)
Menulog app, and place your order on the go. The process is similar - quick and fuss-free! ;)
And as you can see, some restaurants offer you 10% discount on your first order, which was an extra bonus for me.
There's also a small delivery fee which can vary from store to store but if it saves me the effort, I don't mind paying. Soolzip charges only $2.50, which was good.
Anyways! Let's get started with what I ordered. I was skeptical so I did not want to over-order, but I regretted immediately after my first bite.
The egg yolk was still wobbly and gooey, and went really well with the Korean purple rice. Bibimbap cravings - checked! *happy tummy* :D
Like I said, I was skeptical and had no expectations whatsoever, but the fried chicken really took me by surprise. The chicken still had a good crunch and the sweet chilli Pelicana sauce? It was amazeballs!
I am so having this again, sometime soon! And I highly recommend you to try too. So surprisingly good, it makes me want to head in store to have it right out of the fryer.
Apart from the portion being a little small (compared to the portion size you get when dining out for the same price), it was overall a fantastic experience.
Quick and too easy, especially on days when you're lazy to cook, or even head out to eat or takeaway, Menulog is a great alternative! And best of all, comfort of eating in your pj's! Heehee.
If you've never tried online takeaway and delivery before, I'd highly recommend you give Menulog a try. This is my first, and definitely would not be my last time.
And thanks to Menulog's generosity, one lucky reader stands the chance to win 1 x $20 voucher to try out their services! ;)
