Urgh, January. It’s just a big old pile of meh. All you want to do is curl up on the couch and not move a muscle. But how? Let us show you the way. Photography Rob Greig.
Cooking is for chefs and people who are trying to get laid. That’s not you. Dan Frost finds London’s best delivery services.
Burgers from Dine In
Want to enjoy one of London’s best burgers from the calorie-boosting comfort of your own couch? Then this is the one for you. Meat Liquor and Lucky Chip are among the restaurants that supply this delivery service, alongside Busaba Eathai and The Rum Kitchen.
Award winning dishes from Deliveroo
Did you know you can have takeaway from Barnyard delivered straight to your door? Yes, that Barnyard – the uber-hip, award-winning, no-reservations place run by one of London’s hottest chefs, Ollie Dabbous. Well you know now, and you can thank us later. Among the other restaurants covered by Deliveroo are Bubbledogs, Ping Pong, Carluccio’s, and The Diner.
Beer from Honest Brew
Let’s be honest: the craft beer revolution is probably the best thing to happen to drinking since the invention of beer itself. But there are so many delicious new brews out there, how do you know what to try? Simple: just tell Honest Brew what kind of flavours you like and they’ll send you monthly boxes filled with a variety of beers from more than 50 artisan breweries.
Pulled pork from Bodeans
Too cold to barbecue? Fear not, for if you live near Balham or Fulham, your local Bodeans will deliver succulent ribs, pulled pork and burnt ends straight to your door. If you don’t live near Balham or Fulham, well, it’s probably worth moving.
A hangover package from J Seal Butchers
For folk in southwest London, the dead-eyed morning stumble to the shop is a thing of the past thanks to this local butcher. Simply order the ‘hangover cure’ and you’ll get a box of bacon, sausages, eggs, baked beans and black pudding delivered to your home – enough to feed you and the two strangers asleep next to you.
Cake from Crumbs and Doilies
If Marie Antoinette ever ran a speciality food delivery service, it would probably look like this. Not only does Crumbs and Doilies make some of the capital’s best sponges, it also delivers them. Let us eat cake!
