If you live in the Klang Valley, you can check out some of these healthy food delivery businesses.
Ordering is pretty easy via Chopstick Diner’s user-friendly website. On the menu are six salads plus a weekly special, and a trio of juices. To order for the first time, you need to register. Orders must be made a day before (by 10pm) and payment is by direct bank transfer or PayPal.
Once you have registered and set up the payment mode, sudsequent ordering is easier. After making payment, you do have to send them your payment slip before your order can be processed and confirmed with an SMS notification – and that’s how most mainstream online food delivery works.
The portions are pretty decent and the food taste delicious too. The Vietnamese Chicken Salad is very filling and the special tangy dressing is really yummy. The vegetables are also super fresh.
Each lunchbox is priced at RM15, plus RM5 delivery charge – delivery is free (to one delivery address) for orders above RM50. Delivery days: Mondays to Fridays, excluding public holidays, for lunch only. Delivers to areas within the Klang Valley; additional charges apply for deliveries outside of the range.
The Rebellious Chickpea
The Rebellious Chickpea operates via Whatsapp. Orders have to be made by 10pm the night before.
The weekly menu is uploaded on their Facebook or Instagram pages every Sunday. Wednesday is “Surprise Me Wednesday”, so you won’t know what you’re getting until you open your lunchbox.
The kitchen only prepares one dish a day so you don’t have any menu choices. The food is well-seasoned and the chicken portions seem small as they use ayam kampung; they make up for it with bigger portions of side dishes.
Meals are priced at RM16 each and delivery is free. However, there may be a minimum order requirement depending on the delivery area. They deliver within the Klang Valley Mondays to Fridays and try to feed you between 11.30am to 2pm.
Payment is C.O.D. although a deposit is required for large orders.
The Naked Lunch Box
They serve the corporate community – offices, schools or commercial centres in several areas in the Klang Valley and only deliver on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Four dishes are on the menu with prices ranging from RM10 to RM16. The menu changes monthly, and emailed to you upon request.
After ordering, wait for the confirmation email for the payment details (depending on the availability of the lunch boxes). Payment is by bank transfer; after payment, forward the proof and wait for a reply. When you finally get your lunch the next week, you may find the taste slightly bland as they like to keep the flavours clean and low-salt.
The Lean Canteen
Think vacuum-packed food. The meals are vacumm-packed for freshness and needs to be reheated. The good thing is that you can freeze them for up to a week – there is a best before date on each meal so that you know.
Seven types of meals are available each month and the menus are uploaded to their Facebook and Instagram pages. The Salmon Khan is their best seller and just one bite into the nicely cooked and well seasoned pink fish tells you why. The palm-sized fish is paired with couscous, brocolli and baby carrots.
The Don Aglio is another big hit. Made of whole wheat spaghetti tossed in garlic and olive oil with sauteed bell peppers, mushrooms and carrots, it is served with fajita-seasoned, grilled chicken breast. These folks don’t skimp on portion or taste.
Prices range from RM13 to RM19, and home deliveries (in KL and PJ) are on Mondays and Wednesdays only. There is a minimum order of four dishes and an RM5 to RM7 delivery charge applies depending on your location. Alternatively, you can pick up at E@Curve in Mutiara Damansara (open daily).
Order via email or Whatsapp, and pay via bank transfer or C.O.D. The Lean Canteen also aims to be a healthy lifestyle promoter which is why their social media accounts is inundated with useful health tips and information.
