Following a mid morning meal with friends at an egg-cellent restaurant at The Beach, Jumeirah Beach Residence, we were suddenly struck by a mid afternoon hunger. Without wanting to leave our air-conditioning in the (must be somewhere around 50C) heat, we decided to try one of the many delivery options in our vicinity.
For those of you that live outside the UAE, delivery of almost anything to your door is possible and increasingly with credit card payment, not just cash. Convenient but also dangerous.
Foodonclick, 24h.ae, Zomato and our growing favourite Deliveroo (download the app and you’ll see why, merits a separate post about the channels at our disposal in fact) all compete for our attention. Today we ordered from Gallus via Deliveroo. Tomorrow we may take advantage of another provider’s discount deals.
Regardless the half roast chicken was delicious. Still juicy and hot, MinyWife also ordered PiriPiri and Harissa sauces and a green salad. The cats and myself finished off the leftovers. Yum.
I’m partial to Waitrose’s roast chicken and it definitely wins in the value department (18 to 48 AED) but there’s a lightly delightful herb mixture used at Gallus, plus the lazy/delivery factor, that will no doubt see more deliveroos to MinyHome in the near future.
