Deliveroo: Quality restaurants to your door

Can you remember that wonderful week back in July when we had the hottest day basically ever and Nigel Pearson got sacked as LCFC’s manager? Well the whole new manager thing seems to be working out and Leicester are sharing the top spot of the Premier League with Man City. And the good luck for Leicester continued as that was the week Deliveroo came to stay, bringing us a massive selection of local restaurant dishes direct to our doors in just 32 minutes. 

We tried out the new service then and all of my friends were instantly hooked! One of my friends swears by Deliveroo for his pizza delivery, getting pizza that is better quality, quicker and without any fuss. A recent round of investment means that Deliveroo is promising to become something of a global force now, so even more of you will get to enjoy it.

It’s very simple. Get the app or go to their website, pick a restaurant, choose your noms and then kick back and wait for it to arrive. You pay £2.50 for delivery and the minimum order is £12. You can order from a massive selection of great local eateries – both chains and independents. I love the menus from the Queen of Bradgate, Maiyango, Gelato Village and Firebug for example. Yup. Delivery gelato, to your house, to the office, to the park. What a time to be alive!

We got in a little bit of nosh at The Kings Head last night, the only pub I know that lets you bring in your own food. We got ourselves a selection of hot mezzes and a Chicken Beyti to share from Yesim. Our lovely friendly driver got it to us 10 minutes earlier than expected and we got to enjoy some delicious grilled halloumi with our craft ales, wine and a rather raucous game of Cards Against Humanity in front of the open fire.

It is now my ambition to get Deliveroo to bring me an order from Tatra Eastern Corner (because I’ve never tried their menu) at the Kings Head whilst I enjoy a game of Mousetrap with The Boy. I am a simple creature with simple desires, all of which can happily be easily met.

Thanks to Deliveroo for chucking us £20 towards our dinner – much obliged.
