Take Eat Easy

I often find myself torn between two versions of myself. One half is extremely proactive, pretty restless, and always wants to be going out, seeing everything, exploring new things. This part of my personality is all “I can sleep when I’m dead!” “I’m in my early 20s, and living in London – why am I not dancing on a table right now?” or “Why haven’t I been to that [enter fleeting culinary fad here] restaurant yet? I’m not living!”

The other half very much favours staying in, preferably in pajamas, slumped in front of Netflix.

Luckily, Erin One often wins out (she’s very much on top of her diary), but there are times, especially as the nights get longer and colder, that the prospect of staying in becomes almost irresistible.

So when the team at Take Eat Easy asked if I would like to try their new service, I couldn’t believe my luck. Getting food from some of the best restaurants in London, delivered in the comfort of my own home? Yes please – for me, this was the perfect compromise.

Ordering couldn’t be simpler – you can do it from your phone, tablet or laptop. Just type in your postcode, choose from a selection of restaurants that deliver to your area (including Ceviche, Rosa’s Thai, or Andina), and order.

My favourite part of the service was the Uber (or Dominos Pizza) style tracker. You could see exactly which stage your order was at, as well as the exact location of the bicycle courier.

I ordered from Zengi, an Iraqi and Turkish Restaurant in Whitechapel. I’d never tried Iraqi food before, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity. In a hilarious turn of events, lunch plans for two people ended up having to feed six – but luckily we had more than enough food, and there was plenty to go round.

My favourite dish was the lamb shank, followed closely by the baba ganoush and the shakshouka. One thing I would add, though, is that all the dishes do come with rice, so there’s no need to order extra (as we did!) We ended up with enough rice to keep us going for days.

Overall I really enjoyed my experience ordering with Take Eat Easy – it was simple and easy to do, and I absolutely loved the app, and being able to see how far away the food is!

Don’t just take my word for it, though – if you want to try it out, you can get £10 off of your first order by using the code 5YASGA.

I sampled the service in exchange for a fair review. If I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t blog it!
