#Nomnom: Eat Out @ Home


A friend of mine had mentioned a takeway start-up by her aunt. The whole idea was quite intriguing and when I was invited,  to be most candid, I had a steriotypical Indian “Ghar ka Khaana” (home-cooked food) kind of an expectation. But believe me, the spread had me blown away. It looked nothing less (if not more) than a 5 – star arrangement arrangement was it was extremely difficult to process that all of it was actually home-cooked. From Oriental, Italian, Mediterranean to Contemporary Indian, they had everything laid out in the mist beautiful manner possible.

“Eat Out @ Home was born mainly out of our love for cooking”, said childhood friends and founders of “Eat Out @ Home”, Smriti Sarawgi and Shradhha Singhania. They continued, “We cater to all kinds of clients and all cuisines. We try to be a one-stop solution when it comes to food.” Ordering from them would mean giving up on the hassles of presenting and serving the food. They even provide beautiful trays and utensils  for the food to be presented. Besides the extremely creative menu and the hygienic conditions of cooking, their greatest USP is their presentation. Even if they are packing food to be taken on flights, they never ever compromise on the presentation. “There are times when our clients call us on short notice and ask us for something they would have to do nothing about, not even heat it. We have quite a few options even for that”, said the bubbly ladies.

Verdict:

Must-Try if you are willing to experiment with some lip-smacking vegetarian food and looking for a solution for well presented party/corporate/trave food.
