Since my boyfriend is away this week and I will be dining alone (I'm not the type to sit at a restaurant alone), I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to finally try the online-ordering system for chef-cooked dinners brought right to your door via Munchery.com - read on for a $20 code!
I first heard about this new service perhaps a couple months back from receiving one of their mailers with a $10 coupon code. Intrigued by the idea of locally-prepared meals by professional chefs delivered to you just in time for dinner, I went onto the website to have a look. Each day is an entirely new menu with entrees, sides, desserts, drinks, and even a selection for the munckins (aka kids).
It appears that Munchey services weekdays only so the order I placed on Sunday is for Monday delivery. I was impressed and excited about Monday's choices more than what I have seen offered before. So without further ado, my two-course dinner is as follows...
Certified Angus Tri Tip steak grilled medium rare served with a mushroom risotto fritter, parmesan creamed spinach and Chef Steven Levine's own housemade version of A-1 Steak sauce - it has been awhile since I have had a hearty steak!
|Grilled Tri Tip Steak - $11.95|
mushroom arrancini, creamed spinach, steak sauce
A light, flaky cream biscuit filled with a fresh strawberry and rhubarb jam compote, Meyer Lemon curd and brown sugar whipped cream - because strawberry season is here again! ☺
|Strawberry-Rhubarb Shortcake - $5.95|
meyer lemon curd and brown sugar whipped cream
