From sushi to salads and hotpots to Lebanese, these Chelsea, Kensington, and Notting Hill restaurants delivering to your door prove you can eat nutritious and delicious food even when it’s a takeaway
If, like us, you believe the best part of cooking is, well, the cooking and not the slicing, dicing and assembling of ingredients, then Tritto is an excellent option for you. The home-delivery service sends you cold, pre-packaged boxes full of fresh, natural and nutritious meals with all the components neatly wrapped and labelled – you just need to heat and eat. Choose one of the non-cook salads or microwavable meals for minimal effort, but the pan-cook dishes are equally low-effort with only a tiny bit of frying required. The food is locally sourced and there are typically less than 500 kcal per meal so a it’s guilt-free feed but the food is so delicious you won’t even be thinking about that. The menu is incredibly varied with lots of world influences: think butternut and blue cheese risottos, Asian-spiced salmon with coconut rice and smoky beef brisket. Tritto currently delivers to 10 London postcode districts, from Notting Hill through Chelsea to Knightsbridge, and new delivery postcodes are expected to follow so keep an eye on the website. Call anytime from 9am-9pm. Mains start from £5.50, £20 minimum order.
