Merivale Is Bringing Its Ready-to-Eat Delivery Meal Service to Melbourne This Winter
Melburnians will be able to order meals from some of Sydney's best restaurants to their homes — for the very first time.
Victorians can't currently visit NSW, but from next month, they'll be able to order meals from some of Sydney's best restaurant to their homes. Hospitality giant Merivale, which has 70 venues across NSW, is bringing its recently launched delivery service Merivale at Home to Melbourne this August.
The food service brings signature meals from Merivale's most popular restaurants — including Mr Wong's special fried rice, Totti's puffy woodfired bread and Bert's duck liver pâté — to your dining table. It features a weekly rotating lineup of menus from the group's restaurants, each costing $70–95 for two people.
You might get Mr Wong's king prawn wontons, kung pao chicken, steamed barramundi and fried rice for ($95); Bert's brioche rolls, duck liver pâté, prime rib, crushed potatoes and butter lettuce salad (for $95); or a vegetarian menu from Paddington's Fred's with whole-roasted cauliflower, jewelled rice with sultanas, chopped tomato salad and chocolate mousse (for $80). Also on offer: shawarma from Jimmy's Falafel and a truffle feast from Hotel Centennial
All the meals arrive "nearly ready to eat", so you just need to add the finishing touches, which is doable by a cooking novice, supposedly, and doesn't require the skills of Dan Hong (Mr Wong) or Danielle Alvarez (Fred's).
