Let’s remind ourselves of some absolutely delicious treats you can get delivered right to your front door…
Don’t fancy heading out?
I propose three solutions, you can get a DIY meal box delivered (which takes all the difficulty out of cooking for you), you can opt for a swanky home delivery with some delicious restaurant quality chef-prepared grub or you can get copious amounts of lovingly pre-packed cocktails delivered to your front door to save you all that hassle and google searching for your cocktail-night – easy peasy.
Northern Soul Grilled Cheese
The guys over at Northern Soul Grilled Cheese have come up with this beauty – a G.I.Y Kit (that’s ‘Grill-It-Yourself’) and quite frankly – it’s mega. If you don’t believe me, believe The Manchester Food & Drink Festival because these guys just scooped Best DIY Delivery Food Offering! Created for all of those people who fancy their Grilled Cheese fix from home, these G.I.Y kits are available first come first served daily – so be quick!
The absolute ULTIMATE Spanish Experience delivered right to your gaff. Whether you want a Paella for 2 with a house wine (£30), your choice of 5 Tapas and a house wine (£36) or go fancy going full fiesta with Sangría instead, it’s entirely up to you! They’re even offering up Desserts, Wine Delivery, Beer Delivery and some pretty delicious Spanish Street Food Boxes including their Patatas Bravas, Papas Arrugadas or Arroz Salteado. YUM.
Tattu To You
Say goodbye to your local Chinese. It’s time. For the first time ever, Tattu, the contemporary Chinese restaurant over on Spinningfields have launched an at-home delivery and click and collect service, providing restaurant-quality dishes in your own home! Enjoy a selection of their most loved dishes, their classic cocktails (which arrive in the cutest little bottles) and even a QR code that’ll link you to an exclusive playlist of Tattu’s resident DJ mixes.
Put the Donner Kebab down. This one’s worth sitting down for. Luckily for us Mancs, BAB in the Northern Quarter have started a delivery service with Deliveroo – bringing the poshest kebabs to the people of the city one flame-grilled flatbread at a time. Mezze, Posh Babs, Sides (including their famed Greek Fries), Beers, Wines, you name it they’ll bring it.
Crazy Pedro’s NQ
Every Mancs favourite pizza gaff. Get yourself one ordered and experiment with The Mac Daddy (mini hamburger, jack cheese mac sauce, gherkins & shredded lettuce), the World Famous Hotdog Pizza, the Giuseppe’s Not Sloppy, He’s Vegan (hot spiced not beef chilli, jalapeño, vegan cheese) or just stay classic with a Pedro’s Pepperoni or Margarita – nobody is judging you.
WOOD At Home
For those of you that enjoy the finer things in life (like Fillet Steak with Venison Osso Bucco Ragu – yep!) try this 5-course tasting menu from Masterchef Champion, Simon Wood. The WOOD at Home Tasting Menu is the true restaurant experience from start to finish. Lovingly pre-packed, each course offers a series of small pre-made dishes which capture a range of flavours and textures. It even includes some stunning plates and bowls, so you can plate up like a pro!
The Drinks Drop
A new cooperative for the independent bars of Manchester and their bartenders – a percentage of all profits made from The Drinks Drop is given back to our bars, meaning that we can support our favourite venues without having to leave the house – win win! Each cocktail arrives as one single serve, in a reusable pouch or glass bottle (which can then be returned in a free post envelope to be recycled!) They’re offering up some lush flavours, so head over and take a look!
The Lowry Hotel @HOME
My favourite place for some five star dining. The River Restaurant at The Lowry Hotel have recently announced their @HOME service. They’ve got a number of offerings available, including a Sunday Lunch, a Dining Package and this super cute Afternoon Tea box. Including a flashy bottle of prosecco, this is the perfect weekend delivery for when you need a quick pick-me-up. Display it like a masterpiece for your Instagram, or just scoff their cream cakes straight out of the box whilst lying on your sofa. The choice is yours.
Blue Caribou Poutine Kits
Manchester’s newest chips, cheese & gravy loaded delivery service – yes please! The guys over at Blue Caribou have started their poutine delivery service back up again – offering their impressive range of Poutine Kits straight to your door. You can order their ‘Classic Poutine Kit‘ (£11) or they even offer their famous variations including their brilliant ‘Reuben‘ Poutine; with pastrami, mustard and dill pickles, as well as their ‘Korean‘ Poutine with Kimchi, Samurai sauce, mayo and tempura seaweed crisps.
Everybody knows that the chicken wings at Bunny Jackson’s are – I’m gonna say it – the best in Manchester (AND THEY’RE ONLY 20P A WING!). You lucky lot can now enjoy boxes of Bunny’s Classic Wings, Sauces, Burgers, Fries & Chicken from the comfort of your own home. What a treat. Bunny’s takeout collection service is available every day from 12pm-9pm, you know what to do.
