Trying to eat 3 times a day isn’t easy especially if you are the one making the meals. It’s not just the cooking, it’s also the planning, grocery shopping, prepping, and repeating this process over and over again. As someone who has recently returned to the daily grind of the 9-6 job, I find that I don’t have the time nor the energy to plan and cook my meals every day. I’ve been packing lunch to work as well to save money and that has not been easy. I’ll have to either prepare the food the night before or I wake up earlier to get it ready.
All these made me remember seeing food getting delivered in tiffin carriers to my grandparents’ house when I was young. They would have food right at their doorstep without all the hassle and effort needed to cook their own meals. With that in mind, here are 8 places to get delicious and nutritious ready-to-eat meals delivered to you (mostly on a weekly basis) to make life easier.
Tip: Some places would deliver an entire week’s worth of food in one go while other places would deliver them daily. This is something you might want to consider and check before placing your order.
I first came across PichaEats for another article I did – Do A Good Deed – Give Back To Society When You Purchase From These Places! – where I learned that not only are they a food delivery service but they also sell frozen food. You can choose from frozen meals, frozen packets and frozen snacks. For frozen meals, they offer different packages depending on how many you want to order. I got the 6-meal package so that I could bring them to work as lunch. I am very much looking forward to tasting them as the food are inspired and cooked by people from the refugee community!

A look through the food they have served before suggests Malaysian Chinese flavours like the kind you would find at mixed rice shops. Their homecooked food have no MSG, less salt, and less oil making them a delicious and healthy meal you can eat without any worries. Do take note that they only deliver to certain areas in Klang Valley.
