Just move to the city and away from home? Or, are a busy professional staying in a PG who reaches home only by 9ish? Or are simply tired of ordering from that Italian/Chinese restaurant? Well, if you've nodded to any of the above statement (or even not) say hello to this local and homely kitchen delivery service which promises to deliver home-cooked food 'ghar se, ghar tak'!
Those staying away from home surely relate to and know how much one starts appreciating home-cooked food. That's where the Lokal Kitchen steps in. Started in November 2020, this delivery kitchen aims to make you miss your home-cooked food a little less, by bringing together talented home chefs who're here to prepare and deliver hygienic and freshly made food to your doorstep. So here's how it works. They've got an app which connects you with the nearest home chefs and the dishes on offer. Browse through an array of options, place your order and ta da! Enjoy a delicious and lip-smacking home-cooked meal.
Not just that. Set up during the pandemic, this service also aims to focus on women empowerment by proving homemakers and passionate home cooks a platform to earn money. Currently, they've already partnered with 100+ home chefs serving over 30 local cuisines including Malvani, Benagali, Bundelkhandi, Maharashtrian, South Indian, Assamese, Goan, Lebanese, Chinese, Parsi and Italian. And if you're a health freak, they've got a range of dishes just for that to suit your diet.
We hear their bestsellers are the Turkish Bun, Donar Kebab, Malvani Crab Curry, Bengali Maccher Jhol, Goan Chicken Cafreal, Parsi Chicken Farcha and Patra Ni Macchi, Burger In a Bun, Fudges, Rasmalai Cake, Gajar Pak, Puran Poli and Gujiya. (already drooling, folks)
So, I guess bye-bye fast food restaurants for a while!
