If you are familiar with my blog, Twitter or Instagram profiles, you will know that I eat out a lot – so much so that I’m slightly worried I might be developing a bit of a problem. Over the weekend I visited not one but seven eating establishments. SEVEN! I do have an excuse, though – my mum was in town for a couple of days and her being a fellow foodie and all, there was a lot to show her.
As much as I love eating out, it’s nice to stay in once in a while. Usually when I stay in I’ll cook, but a couple of weeks ago I was asked to try takeaway ordering from JUST EAT, the world’s leading online takeaway ordering service, which allows you to order in real-time from your local independent takeaway restaurant.
It was a Friday evening when I decided to try JUST EAT. My friend was coming around to view a spare room in my house and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to catch up over tasty food without the hassle of cooking.
Adiva on Commercial Street was recommended to me. It’s a Lebanese & Turkish fusion restaurant and we ordered a few things, including a mix grill platter, tabouleh and hommous, which arrived with a small side salad and pita bread. The minimum spend differs for each restaurant but it is usually around £20 – great if you’re ordering for more than one person but not so great if you’re at home by yourself and fancy a takeaway.
The food arrived and we were impressed with the meat but the pita resembled supermarket value pita, which I was pretty disappointed with. Bread is one of my favourite elements of a Lebanese meal so I couldn’t help feeling a bit cheated. That said, we enjoyed our food and more to the point, I had ordered it from my desk at work and specified a time for delivery – the moped pulled up to my front door as soon as I had arrived back home and all I had to do was put it on a plate and eat.
