Last week I tried Munchery.com - a food delivery service. This is a ready-made meal service that is delivered right to your door. I had a coupon code for a free meal, so I got dinner for something like $3.00 tax/delivery charge.
My initial feelings of this business were positive. It was very easy to order a meal, there were a lot of options for meals, sides, and dessert! I placed an order the night before for dinner the next day. I received a text from the driver 10 minutes before he came, and then again when he was outside at 6:45 (my delivery window was between 5 and 7pm).
But then there was the meal. I really, really wanted to like it. I ordered grilled salmon with aioli, broccolini and white rice. First of all, I'm convinced that "aioli" is just a fancy way of saying "mayonnaise" because that's what it was. The meal as a whole was very disappointing. I took one bite and realized the salmon was very, very raw. I didn't realize I ordered sushi. So I put it in the microwave to finish cooking it. But then the rest of the meal was just so bland. Blah, Bland, Boring. I had to add a little bit of salt and pepper just to add some flavor to it.
I loved the concept of this, but I will not be ordering from them again. Can't say I didn't try!
