It’s day 6 and its already getting a bit monotonous. The only thing that’s keeping me going is the novelty factor – trying out new things every meal of the day.
Almost all the meals I order are through FoodPanda. 9 times out of 10, the app hasn’t disappointed me, at least so far.
Lunch – Nutrinizer
I had been watching Nutrinizer cautiously since the last week on FoodPanda restaurant browser and for some reason it just didn’t impress me. Then the fact that they are charging Rs49 as delivery charges didn’t help matters.
But since I’m on a path of pure exploration, I decided to have a go at it.
Interestingly, although the prices are apparently more compared to EatFit, they don’t charge the VAT or maybe it’s built-in to their menu, so at the end of the day its more or less the same price as Eat Fit.
I chose the Healthy Harvest Salad which claimed to have everything under the sun – Grilled Chicken, Fat free Cottage Cheese, boiled egg, cucumber, green apple, olives, ice burg and rocket leaves with light dressing.
Sounds too good to be true? It shouldn’t, when you hear that the price is Rs.490. But even at this price, restaurants like Health Act and Koel Café have managed to disappoint.
It was the best salad I’ve had since beginning this quest. Just have a look at the picture! Damn. It looks good even in the picture.
Plain awesome. And plenty of it!
And on top of everything, I don’t know what the hell they put into that salad, but I felt great after having it. It was like they had loaded the salad with weed or something. Ecstasy perhaps?
So if there is one salad that I would recommend that satiates your appetite, tantalizes your taste buds, and makes you feel great afterwards, look no further. Nutrinizer’s Healthy Harvest Salad is the Holy Grail of Salads.
Dinner – Qasr-e-Nakheel
For some inexplicable reason, Qasr-e-Nakheel gives you almost twice the quantity in its chicken shawarma platter if you go there and parcel the stuff instead of having it there.
Or maybe it was a mistake. In any case, they gave so much that it’s enough to last me for two dinners. And that’s not a bad thing when you’re bleeding money right and left ordering food from outside instead of having the proverbial good old home-cooked food.
I’m surprised I haven’t landed on the radar of FoodPanda’s management as yet even though I’ve been ordering through twice a day every day for the last two weeks. It seems they don’t do much with all the ‘Big Data’ they’re accumulating.
