Catherine, a lovely client of mine sent me a free meal through a local dinner delivery service called Gobble. The thought of a home cooked meal that I don’t have to shop for, prepare, or clean up after sounded like a real treat but I didn’t know what to expect considering the only delivery that I have ever ordered is bad Chinese or local pizza.
Chris and I took a look at Gobble’s site and we really liked the simple layout. It is organized by day and each day has 5-7 dinner options with great photos and descriptions from local chefs. The options change each day and so do the chefs so there is always something new.
We decided to schedule our delivery for last Friday night so we could have a easy dinner at home after a long week of work. We ended up choosing these two meals cooked by Chef Alisa Chotibhongs…
On the day of the dinner delivery I received a reminder email letting me know that dinner was almost ready. I scheduled the delivery between 5:30 and 6pm and it arrived right on time. I loved the packaging that everything came in, aren’t the labels great?
It was nice to sit outside in our sweats and enjoy our dinner with a glass of wine. I ended up eating most of the panang beef (we were supposed to share) and it was so good. It was tangy and spicy and I would definitely order it again…
Chris is all about presentation so I wasn’t surprised when he ordered an entree served in a pineapple bowl. The shrimp and rice were infused with the pineapple flavor and it was just as good as it looks.
This whole experience opened our eyes to a much tastier meal delivery option and we can’t wait to order from Gobble again. I will also keep it in mind as a gift for my clients and friends, it would be perfect as a housewarming gift or a treat for new parents. Thank you Catherine for the meal and opening my eyes to a great local service!
