Why we should be proud to order takeaway..
...on occasion. I'm a firm believer in the moderation diet. If you're honest with yourself and are 'good' 80% of the time you can royally enjoy the 20% without the guilt. Which is exactly why a Just Eat* takeaway is great for those cheat days. They've surprisingly got a really wide range of well... anything and everything. From sushi to burgers to Thai food to Pho, the options are endless. And it's a great way to support your local suppliers and restaurants. I love cooking and creating my own recipes but sometimes I need a lazy takeaway delivered straight to my door. Whether it's after a stressful day at work, or a hungover Saturday I think we should be shouting about our local takeaways more often.
On one particular evening collapsed on the sofa my housemate and I ordered, what could only be described as a "f*cktonne of Thai food" from Hi Bangkok in South Wimbledon. We decided on one portion of Chicken satay skewers, one Panang Gai (a red curry with coconut milk and lime leaves), one Kaeng Massaman Kai (chicken, potato, peanuts and coconut milk in a Massaman curry) some sticky rice and Poh Pia Jay (vegetable spring rolls). Oh, and some free prawn crackers thrown in. It's pretty good thai food and I'd definitely recommend trying out Hi Bangkok. Evidence of this was shown by cradling our food babies post pig-out.
*The lovely guys at Just Eat kindly fed us for free.
Value for money: Affordable - cheap and cheerful, just under £30 for everything.
Taste: Delicious - One of the best Thai places near me in South London.
Delivery: Ok - Our order was due at 8.10pm but was unfortunately 25 minutes late. I think this is an on-going issue for most local takeaways and it possibly didn't help that we ordered on Valentine's Day when lots of orders were being placed.
