We recently put the Menulog service to the test at our house. Have you heard of it?
Menulog is an Australian online restaurant take-out ordering and food delivery service. One simple website hosts over 3500 restaurants with around 11,000 specials and over 100,000 restaurant reviews. This is take-out on a whole new level and yet surprisingly simple to use.
When we were invited to try the Menulog service to see what we thought, my first thought was No problem!
Menulog kindly provided my family with a voucher to cover a meal of our choice, home delivered from a local restaurant of our choosing, who are a part of the Menulog online community.
For us, the hardest part of the task was choosing from the multiple cuisines available under our post code on the Menulog website! There were plenty of choices on offer to us (for an example, see here), and we think we very wisely selected a meal from Tas Ka Thai of Glen Iris in Melbourne.
We love Thai cuisine and the selection of dishes from this restaurant did not disappoint. The kids loved the chicken satay (always a safe choice for the kiddos in terms of guaranteed consumption), and of course the prawn crackers and Roti breads were eaten heartily by our brood too.
As for us grownups, we enjoyed a great variety of curries including green and red curries, Massaman curry as well as stir-fried chicken and vegetarian curry puffs. Surprisingly, the children did enjoy the dishes despite the varying degrees of heat and spice and the unfamiliarity. In fact, they were asking to do it all again 'next time.' (And there will be a next time using this service I can assure you!)
Green curry - you were amazing! Any curry that gives me that hot, flustered and spluttery sensation is a winner in my book!
The nuts and bolts of using the Menulog service are as follows:
Got to the Menulog site.
Enter your post code.
A list of restaurants who are members of your local Menulog community will show.
Choose. (It's the hard part!)
Order your meal from the very easy to use online menu. (There are even pop-ups where you can select additionals like mild, medium and hot spices or add-ons to suit your taste.)
Decide when you would like your meal delivered including the time you would like it to arrive. (Now or later - you can even order days in advance.) You can also opt to collect your meal in person if you wish.
Checkout and pay.
All orders receive an SMS confirmation.
Get excited and set your table!
The service is free and so easy to use. Think of it as a personal directory of all the worthy local restaurants available to you. No need to hunt down anything as one site takes care of it all.
Life made easy!
We immediately received a discount of 10% off our next order too, via email, which we are already planning to use again. We genuinely enjoyed the Menulog experience as much as we loved our Thai dinner. Menulog is a massive convenience and I love that this was so effortless.
