As an immigrant myself, I’ve often found it difficult to enjoy the food I miss the most from home the same way I do here. It’s paradoxical. Don’t get me wrong, I love the local food available here and the simplicity in finding traditional cuisines from other countries at the comfort of the capital. However, with so many people sharing the same origins as me, one would think there would be similar dishes (if not exactly the same) with slight variances available here in London as opposed to the authentic traditional food one finds at home.
However, it’s hard to replicate the flavours and the spices available at home, here. It’s in food where we find the consolation or even solace that we need, particularly in those days in which we miss home a little bit more. Food is what remains after all the tangible aspects of a culture disappears or remain too far to be tangible, ideas written down on a piece of paper that are transferred down to the youngest of a generation, doing so indefinitely until it’s either irrelevant or impossible to continue.
Food is a form of way to kill the unpleasantness that exists in both our hearts and our minds when we miss home a little too much – a temporary edible painkiller for homesickness, if you will. And it is also in food where we find the tastes and flavours we once knew, and use these to spark other dishes that might be subject to the creation of something completely new.
And that’s what we’re all about. At All Eat, we aim to replicate your favourite dishes available at home to be made possible to eat here, so that during those days in which you particularly miss home a little more, we’ll be here for you with the dishes that warm up your soul the most.

We’ve all heard enough (more than enough!) of the lame dad jokes and frankly, it’s often inappropriately timed and tirelessly overused but we tolerate it because… well, it’d be weird if dads around the world didn’t attempt to make lame jokes all the time. And that’s why dads are so special; Just the mere attempt or even just the intention to try to entertain a particular situation at any given time proves just how much dads around the world have similarly hearts of gold, trying to make people smile. MVP.
In celebration of fathers and the uniquely important role they play in our lives (and the dadbod trend that is slowly becoming the norm for fathers worldwide), we’re dedicating this post to the dads that work tirelessly hard (both at home and at work) to keep their family and children happy, whilst also highlighting the importance of 16th June celebrating exactly that.
I’m sure a substantial number of dads like to be in charge of the grilling section in a BBQ wearing an apron that reads ‘Best dad in the world’ whilst wearing their favourite crocs with their slippers on, but for Father’s Day, why not let them relax and treat your dad to his favourite food in a convenient and hassle-free way?
It’s incredibly easy, simply download our app (either on Google Play or Appstore) to celebrate Father’s Day and order from countless restaurants and cuisines available because, ultimately, fathers can be lame when they want to, but they’ll always have your back and your best interest at heart.

The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup month-long event starting from June 7th until July 7th makes for an exciting month ahead for us football fanatics. With France being the host country for this year’s incredible event taking place in nine cities, you can expect the 24 teams playing to give you an experience of a lifetime. Here at All Eat we have compiled takeaway ideas to make this year’s event even more exciting with food ideas that go best with the hot weather we’re experiencing this summer (or shall I say, will be experiencing):
Mexican cuisine is often a very healthy choice to
incorporate in your diet, as it contains healthy ingredients like beans,
complex carbs and lean protein. Not only is it a healthy choice, but also
packed with flavours that are uniquely their own. Often refreshingly light and
flavoursome, Mexican food can take the form of Tostadas, Enchiladas, and Tacos al
Pastor for some fire food that your body will thank you for!
Pizza Pizza is one of those foods that can be eaten in any occasion. Available in almost any topping imaginable, pizza can either be unhealthy or really healthy, depending on how you order it. Personally, if the occasion is pizza, then I say go all out.
Indian If you think Indian food is best enjoyed in the Winter, then think again. With countless (and I mean countless) tastes and spices available, there is literally so much options available from mild to spicy, you can literally pick any India food that suits your palate! Additionally, if you’re a fan of spicy food, you’re most definitely picking the right cuisine.
Turkish For those of you seeking a healthy alternative picking a dull option, Turkish food is highly recommended. With several healthy yet flavoursome tastes, Turkish food offers refreshingly light food that’s not only good for your stomach, but also for the heart. This is more for those of you that are meat eaters, but let’s not neglect the vegetarians. Turkish food also successfully caters for those of you that are non-meat eaters, so rest assured there’s something for everyone there.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the quick list of cuisines that go best with the Summer season, but also (and most importantly) cuisines that go best with the ongoing hype of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup. With tonight’s fixtures consisting of Chile v Sweden (17:00 BST), and USA v Thailand (20:00 BST), you can expect this year’s Women’s World Cup to be historical, with USA entering as the incumbent champions of the competition.
Here at All Eat, we’re excited to be living in a time where gender equality is being successfully integrated into sports as each year passes, and we’re even more excited to be providing you with high quality food at affordable prices. With exclusive discounts up to 50% OFF, we can guarantee you’re getting the best value for your food, hassle-free.
As Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday approaches on June 8th, it’s an exciting day ahead as the nation celebrates the birthday of the sixth-longest-reigning British Monarch, when she surpassed her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria. With 66 years as Queen, we’ve all got to admit what the Her Majesty’ The Queen’s diet consists of, and what her day-to-day food intake looks like. As the Queen’s birthday slowly creeps up on our calendar, we at All Eat have found what the daily diet consists of, so if you’re attempting to replicate this, you could also live like royalty. Breakfast Prior to breakfast, the Queen starts her busy day off right – Earl Grey tea (without milk or sugar!) and a handful of biscuits. Afterwards, roll on breakfast. This would typically consists of cereal with fruit which Special K, with the Queen taking a liking to have her cereal served in a Tupperware, as it helps to keep it fresh. At other times, the Queen will opt for toast and marmalade (I don’t blame her, it really is that delicious) which, in my opinion, helps to kick start the morning off right with a naturally sweet boost. Alternatively, Elizabeth has also taken a liking to scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and truffle – if that were me, it’d feel like Sunday brunch everyday (not complaining, though).
Lunch Before lunch, the Queen enjoys the odd sip of a glass of gin and Dubonnet (sweet wine-based aperitif), accompanied by ice with a lemon garnish to top it off – sounds great, really. As far as lunch goes, the Queen has two options: either grilled Dover sole along with wilted spinach or courgettes, whilst the latter option being a simple, yet delicious grilled chicken with salad. The ‘no starch’ rule applies here, and this translates to the elimination of potatoes, rice, or even pasta.
Afternoon Tea Iconic. The fact that the Queen will make no exception and have Afternoon Tea incorporated in her daily schedule regardless of what’s happening in the world is the definition of Queen. In it, includes fingers sandwiches such as smoked salmon, cucumber, egg and mayonnaise as well as jam pennies (yum). Along with these, choices offered also include tea biscuits, scones and cakes.
Dinner This is where we see the Royal Family’s culinary prowess in action. Brace
yourselves. For dinner, the Queen enjoys fillets of beef or venison, pheasant
or salmon come from farms in Sandringham and Balmoral. Served in a mushroom,
cream and whiskey sauce, the Queen also enjoys a typically well-made Sunday
roast, when served well done.
But most importantly, the Queen enjoys a glass of Champagne
to call it a day and honestly, I admire that.
In celebration of the Queen’s birthday on June 8th, we have included the daily food intake for the Queen’s schedule. However, that’s not to say it’s completely accurate nor updated, but it’s a particularly interesting insight into the dietary intake of that of the Queen’s. If you’re an avid fan of the Royal Family or the Queen in particular and you’d like to slightly replicate the daily food intake,
All Eat is your best choice in doing so, with most if not all of the foods mentioned above being directly available for you to consume. It’s simple and easy, just download our app on either Google Play or Appstore and enjoy exclusive discounts up to 50% off for takeaways near you.
Best friends come in so many different forms in our lives, that the meaning in itself is hard to congest it to one single relationship only. A best friend could be your parent, sibling, partner, a colleague, teacher or even your pet. Best friends help you through moments you need them the most, are there for you in countless ways and truthfully speaking, it’s always nice to have someone by your side through good moments and bad. It’s especially through the bad ones that you realise and truly comprehend what role that person now plays in your life.
It’s refreshing to see someone in such a different light after you’ve gone through moments or even hardship in life with that having them by your side is truly a blessing. In celebration of National Best Friend’s Day 2019, this post is dedicated to the best friends in your life that have always been there for you. We’re not always grateful for their presence in our lives (in fact, we often overlook this!), so look at this post as a source of reflection or even inspiration to do something nice for your best friend, particularly if they’re a foodie (like me).
At the end of the day, we must be thankful to those people who have helped us along in our own individual journey through life, and more often than not, we can’t do it without the help, love and constant support from best friends.
Whether they’re halfway around the world or next door, show some love by ordering them their favourite takeaway because, whatever it is that they love eating, we at All Eat can promise that we’ll have it here. With exclusive discounts up to 50% off, we’ll let you treat your best friend without breaking the bank (keep it between us, though!)
June 1st 2019– mark this date. In Spain, Madrid is going to be hosting the 2019 UEFA Champions League Final at Atletico Madrid’s own, the Wanda Metropolitano stadium with a capacity of 63,500 people tonight at 8:00pm BST. The long awaited final match between the Premier League’s best will include Tottenham Hotspur against their northern counterparts, Liverpool. Let’s put things in perspective: here at All Eat we’re excited about tonight’s match because the last time Liverpool won the Champions League was in Istanbul in 2005 against AC Milan, being 3-0 in the first half with a remarkable second half that injected a dose of inspiration in the Scouse team as each goal was scored. However, let’s not forget Liverpool’s defeat against Real Madrid last year, which was devastating to watch (even if you’re not a Liverpool fan). Nevertheless, although football is the main topic for this blog, I will also include the best takeaways that go with this annual iconic event:
Pizza This is standard football snack. It’s not only timeless, but also an unspoken agreement between you and your mates if you’re watching it at home. While you’re at it, why not go all out and upgrade it to a stuffed crust, with all that cheese melting inside as you’re finishing a slice of pizza. Think of it this way – it’s like a (good) surprise for finishing the whole pizza slice. So go on, upgrade it.
Wings,wings,wings Chicken wings for the win! If you’re into the fiery and spicy grilled chicken wings with an incredible aroma that will leave its mark on your palate for a while, then this is for you. With countless options for chicken wings available, we’re sure All Eat will leave you browsing with countless options. Alternatively, if you’re not a fan of spicy, a good recommendation would be chicken wings glazed with BBQ, with a slow-cooked finish that will leave you thinking you just came back from the States. Also, if you want to make the footy even further worthwhile, try adding either mozzarella sticks or event better, cheddar croquettes – this makes for a powerful combo.
Turkish If you’re a Liverpool fan and feel reminiscent, perhaps even nostalgic, about the 2005 UEFA Champions League, then Turkish cuisine is probably your best bet. Chances are, with such good memories of Shevchenko missing the critical penalty that cost AC Milan. Tragic. Regardless, a good lamb or chicken kebab might reignite that fire that we once witnessed in 2005 and, hopefully, there’s dessert this time.
Burgers If you’re craving American food, then this one’s for you. With numerous options available, here at All Eat we’ve got it covered for you. With a wide range of burgers (seriously, look it up), there’s more than enough choice to cater for different tastes and preferences and that’s also for you vegetarians (No, we haven’t forgotten about you).
Chinese cuisine Whether you’re celebrating football, a promotion, your birthday or just life itself, there’s never a wrong occasion to treat yourself to a cheeky Chinese. With so many different dishes available, you can ensure you’ll find something to fit with your taste buds. With today’s weather and tonight’s game in mind, a honey-glazed roast pork sounds fab – I’m in.
In preparation of tonight’s event, it can be quite difficult to choose a cuisine to go with the build-up (and expectations!) to live up to the Final. However, that’s not a bad sign, as here at All Eat, we have a wide array of choices available for you. So, put on your jersey and watch the epic final tonight while we do all the work for you.
Spring bank holiday yesterday. You know what that means – three-day weekend for the win. Yet, here we are sitting, once again, in our offices after a blissful weekend with the sun out (and maybe a fruity cider in one hand?). With that being said, I’m sure we can comment on behalf of the nation that we don’t feel like cooking. Seems like a hassle, having to go to the supermarket, chopping up the ingredients, cooking them and finally having to wash the dirty plates at the end – not tonight.
Here’s us, AllEat, attempting to convince you that you should go ahead and order your favourite food tonight:
1. Hassle-free With our 3-in-1 AllEat app, we offer customers three different distinct services, of which include Food collection, delivery, and table booking.

3. Best Hangover Prevention Solution Let’s not kid ourselves, I’m sure we Brits didn’t make good use of the weekend by drinking tea the whole time. Whilst there are some ‘solutions’ to cure your hangover, ordering in your favourite food tonight seems incredibly tempting, doesn’t it? If your hangover still hasn’t let you go, why not order something to help remedy that? Hint: Pizza.
4. Comfort, Comfort, Comfort. Picture this: You’re at home, glass of wine in one hand, remote control in the other. You’re binge watching your favourite series, and the last thing you want to do?

Chinese cuisine as we know today has gone through substantial changes in tastes and methods over the past few decades. With the introduction of Chinese cuisine in Britain as early as the 1600s as a result of the Anglo-China trade, understandably, the tastes and varieties of Chinese cuisine in a British context has been refined to suit the Western palate, but nonetheless, it is the traditional Chinese cooking methods and flavours that have captivated the nation’s endless love for Chinese Cuisine.
In 1880s, London’s first Chinatown was established in the Docks surrounding Limehouse area in East London, where many Chinese sailors settled there. At this point, Chinese cuisine was very much still a novelty (if you can even refer it as that), so understandably, British people had little to no knowledge (and future potential and prowess) of Chinese cuisine. However, it wasn’t until the International Health Exhibition in 1884 that Chinese cuisine was widely introduced to the British public. In fact, in 1908, the first recorded opening of a formal Chinese restaurant was located in Piccadilly Circus where, shockingly, was named ‘The Chinese Restaurant’ – fair enough.
It wasn’t until 1951 that there had been more introduction,
commercially speaking, of different regional dishes from China into the London
restaurant scene in Soho. This was regarded as a risky move, particularly when
the British didn’t have much knowledge of the Chinese cuisine in itself, let
alone specific regional dishes like Fujian and Sichuan.
Following the swinging 1960s, a cultural shift within British society has meant that Londoners were less reluctant and more willing to experiment Chinese cuisine, with the introduction of Western-style three-course meals in order to accommodate local needs whilst using the time efficiently. By the 1970s, however, the term ‘Hong Kong Style’ had emerged, describing Cantonese cuisine that integrated exotic or expensive ingredients with Western catering.
As previously mentioned, Chinese cuisine has gone through exponential changes in tastes over the decades, favouring Western palates over traditional ones to accommodate local needs; With the gradual introduction of regional dishes like Hunan-style and Dongbei-style among others overtime, Chinese cuisine has evolved backward in British society, in that it started by accommodating local needs and slowly going back to its original roots.
Today, we can see endless types of Chinese cuisine in London that boast other Asian restaurants which, collectively, have made Chinatown what it is today – an iconic ethnic enclave. At AllEat, we have every type of Chinese cuisine to cater to your needs, with an abundant choice of various types of Chinese cuisine near you.

Malaysian cuisine is a true reflection of the country’s multi-ethnic makeup, with three major ethnic groups, namely Malays, Chinese and Indians forming the majority parts of ethnic groups in Malaysia. With historical migrations and previous colonial presence from foreign powers, Malaysia’s culinary history can be traced back to traditions of Malay, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian and Bornean roots, with influences ranging from Thai, Portuguese, English, Chinese, Dutch, Arabian and British cuisines (to name but a few).
The result today, is a very diverse population with an incredible fusion of culinary traditions from numerous backgrounds which consequently form a symphony of flavours that make Malaysian cuisine that we know today, very diverse and complex. With 75,000 Malaysian-born residents in London – 21,209 in Greater London, and 11,331 in South East England – we can assume that Malaysian cuisine is quite popular in London.
If Malaysian cuisine is a novelty to you, it can be quite overwhelming to get started on food choices. In this post, I will be writing about London’s favourite Malaysian dishes so that you know whichever dish I mention here, will easily be available in London:
1. Nasi Lemak Coined by some as Malaysia’s unofficial National Dish, Nasi Lemak is one to add to your list.
A must-try. Often consumed for breakfast, this dish is quite versatile in that, it can be eaten in different times of day with additional sides such as fried chicken, rendang (I’ll get to it later on), and curries. Perfect. The dish itself contains steamed rice mixed with coconut milk and pandan leaves which create that rich fragrance and aroma.
2. Satay We Brits know Satay skewers, and truthfully, we’re fond of it. As something we can’t go long without whenever in an Asian establishment, let me give some history behind this iconic sauce.
Coined as sate in Malay, derived in Indonesia, the satay sauce itself is served with unique variations in different countries; Nevertheless, Malaysia is often regarded powerhouse of the infamous Satay sauce made with peanut-based sweet and slightly spicy sauce, with meats marinated in local spices.
3. Mee Goreng Also known as bakmi goreng, this constitutes one of the popular street foods in Malaysia which consists of fried noodles stir-fried in the wok with shallots, chillies, and soy sauce and garlic, often being served with chicken or shrimp. Known internationally, this dish truly is an insane fusion of spices where you can evidently see the influences of different culinary touches – a must-try.
4. Rendang A slow-cooked dry curry infused with ginger, turmeric, kaffir limes and chilli, echoing sweet, savoury, and sour elements of the dish.
Complemented by the richness and creaminess of coconut as well as the pungent taste of asam keping (sour sun-dried fruit), this dish makes for an awesome dish easily eaten with either rice or roti (flatbread).
5. Nasi Goreng Literally translated to ‘fried rice’, this dish is iconic (rightly so).
Simple enough, this dish is made with rice stir-fried with garlic, chilli, kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) making it an easy favourite street food, popular in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Brunei. Tip: It’s popular to eat this dish with a fried egg on top, so don’t forget to order with it!
This post lightly touches on the countless variety and diversity offered by Malaysian cuisine which cannot possibly be summarised in a single post. However, these dishes are all traditional that both locals and tourists eat, so it’s a good starting point for anyone with no prior experience eating Malaysian food.
Luckily for you, the reader, here at AllEat we have countless options for Malaysian cuisine so you have an abundant amount of choices for you to enjoy, ranging from mild to spicy, sweet to sour. Whatever flavours your palate enjoys, we have it.
Let’s face it: the most common reason we order a takeaway is to treat ourselves.
Sometimes, we return home from work and we feel tired, or we had a bad day, the last thing we want to do is to cook up a meal – from whipping out the chopping board to washing the plates at the end, let’s just say it’s a hassle.
However, people generally don’t often order themselves a takeaway just so they can eat a salad (unless you’re a professional athlete). Nevertheless, the point of ordering a takeaway is to treat yourself to either your favourite foods or to try something new (perhaps something more exotic for your taste buds?)
Whatever your reason for ordering a takeaway may be, for those of us trying to maintain a healthy diet (without breaking the bank, obviously), this post is for you; In it, I will be writing about choosing your favourite cuisines, and suggesting healthier options for you.
1. Thai takeaway Thai food is an incredible mixture of various ingredients that most often than not, one of the main ingredients acting as the backbone of Thai cuisine could be the legendary fish sauce which is actually very healthy, as it contains the vital nutrients contained in fish and fish organs, enhanced by fermentation.
Other healthier alternatives could include: – Tom Yum soup (hot and sour soup) which is known for fighting against colds
– Stir-fry meats (lean meat preferable) with vegetables for a strong nutritional dish
– Salads (i.e. Som Tum) can include different fruits like papaya and some nuts. Thai salads are refreshingly mouth-watering combining different flavours that’ll remind you of Phi Phi Islands (go on, Google it).
2. Indian takeaway Some days we feel like having an Indian takeaway just for the pure infusion of herbs and spices mixed together that create that exotic, spicy and flavoursome taste. If you don’t mind the calories, why not try a creamy curry that will neutralise the spicy and give you that rich creamy goodness, such as Masala, Pasanda and Korma.
Alternatively, healthier options can include: -Chicken Biryani is a very good choice, and if you want to go the extra mile, you can request for the egg to be removed (730 calories, 24g fat).
-If you’re adamant you need a curry, the best options are Chicken Jalfrezi and Madras for a balanced meal (try to swap the Pilau rice for boiled rice for fewer calories, if you’re into that).
– If you’re serious about it, the absolute best choice for you would be Tandoori Chicken with half a Naan bread or half portion of boiled rice (for those of you that are serious about gains).
3. Chinese takeaway Among one of the most popular cuisines in Britain, Chinese cuisine reigns at the top of the list. Although there’s a notion that Chinese food is often unhealthy, traditional Chinese cuisine would beg to differ. Nonetheless, Chinese cuisine can vary depending on the nature of the restaurant and the menu it provides, but luckily for you, there are a few tricks you can implement to ensure that you’re cutting down the calories as much as possible:
-A good choice would be Chicken Chow Mein (860 calories, 30g fat), as chicken provides good source of protein with minimal amount of fat.
-The ultimate best choice would be Szechuan prawns (589 calories, 14g fat) with either vegetables or half a portion of steamed rice.
– Preferably lean meat, a quality Chop Suey containing chicken would also be highly beneficial for those of you trying not to consume highly fatty foods.
-If you’re a sides person, I’d recommend ordering an additional crab and corn soup, steamed dumplings, fish, or vegetables.
4. Italian takeaway For my fellow pizza and pasta lovers, this one is for you. I myself enjoy devouring a pizza all to myself, but sometimes, it’s refreshing to take a healthier route and we’ll help you decide which ones are better, so rest assured. Firstly, if you can, try to avoid highly caloric foods like garlic bread (I know, I know), creamy pasta sauces, and deep-pan or stuffed crust pizza bases.
Alternatively, you can swap those aforementioned with: – Hawaiian Pizza (772 calories, 26g fat): although the pineapple on pizza debate is best to be avoided, this pizza is actually one of the more healthier meat-included pizzas out there! Dig in, then.
– Best choice of pizza, however, would be tuna, anchovies and olive pizza (403 calories, 15g fat) preferably with a thin-crust pizza base for a crunchy finish. Yum.
5. Chippy (Fish and Chips) It’s not Friday yet, but we’ll still mention the beloved, infamous fish and chips. With countless places to choose from, you can choose a restaurant that best suits your dietary needs.
With this, we’ll recommend the following: – Chips are life, but they’re not always the healthiest option. Worry not, swap those chips with potato scallops (if you’re feeling bougie, that is)
– An extra step would be to discard the soggy bits from the batter (contains the most amount of oil)
– Side person, is that you? If you’re craving a vegetable alternative, try switching to mushy peas instead if you’re really trying (not as exciting as chips but, we’ll allow it).
– Foods to avoid in this type of cuisine would be steak and kidney pies (I know, I’m sorry too).
There you have it. These are simple ‘tricks’ to cut down on the unnecessary high caloric food without compromising your favourite takeaway because, after all, you’re not going to order a salad. Nonetheless, dietary requirements are something that we at AllEat take very seriously in and pride ourselves in so rest assured that whatever food you order from us will arrive the way you ordered it.
Londoners have a very curious palate – as a city and the capital of England, London has experienced exponential changes throughout the centuries, in every sense of the word. Culturally speaking, London now boasts 270 nationalities, with 300 different languages being spoken. Through years and years of constant change, London has evolved to be a city that has a history of welcoming foreigners from abroad, and making the small yet lively capital, everyone’s new home.
With that, there’s been an influx not only of people from countless other countries, but also food from abroad – Different cooking methods and techniques, ingredients, and refinement of traditional homemade recipes throughout different generations. Consequently, this has meant that, with such a rich diversity across London, finding any type of cuisine – even previously unheard of ones – is no longer impossible. London truly caters for the world, from traditional cuisines to innovative cuisines that integrate traditional and modern innovative techniques that produce flavours nowhere to be found apart from London.
As a result, London is a capital that reflects a modern society where its social fabric largely depends on the rich diverse cultures all integrated together in a cohesive manner, with people from all over the world bringing a piece of their home to London.
At AllEat, we strive to reflect the rich diversity that London has to offer with discounts up to 50% off, making it possible for finding a specific cuisine a little bit easier and more accessible, helping to bring a little piece of home to London.
As a culture, we Brits don’t really encompass the practice of meditation in our day-to-day lives. For many, it’s still a novelty, something that we’re slowly giving more importance to as we have increasing external factors affecting us differently everyday.
It’s easy to get lost in the chaos of everyday life particularly in a busy city such as London, that we sometimes need a reminder to take care of ourselves, and this post talks about the importance of incorporating meditation in our day-to-day lives, and with it, the benefits it brings to us:
1. Helps to reduce stress Stress is very common amongst people, but it creeps up on us in ways that we’re not aware. Next thing you know, you’re feeling unsettled for no particular reason. Common knowledge suggests our understanding of how prolonged stress can have a negative effect on a person over the long-term can be harmful, but changes in our diet can help break this with foods such as vegetables (consumed in a persistent manner), yogurt, salmon (or any fatty fish) and pistachios (genuine excuse for a Turkish Baklava now, right?)
2. Controls Anxiety Stress and anxiety can be interchangeably used, as the symptoms of each of these overlap with each other. A good incorporation of fatty fish and foods that contain a high level of Vitamin D (i.e. eggs) are great options for coping with anxiety better.
3. Lengthens attention span Meditation is an excellent outlet for improving our concentration and mental focus – it acts as a mental exercise of your attention, as meditation trains your brain to keep focused for longer periods of time. In as little as four days, you can start seeing a slight change going into effect.
4. Improves sleep Our mental health is just as important as our physical one, if not more, as our brain impacts every single aspect of our lives from how we interact with others and ourselves, to our outlook on life. If our brain is too active by the time we’re in bed, it will take a longer time for you to sleep. Therefore, meditation is a good way to calm your mind and to tell your body to relax, making it far easier to fall asleep.
5. Promotes Emotional Health Finally, sustained and habitual meditation helps to cultivate a healthy outlook on life, which helps to make us feel better. Moreover, the practice and incorporation of meditation is an excellent way of promoting positivity, empathy, compassionate behaviour towards others but most importantly, towards ourselves (yep, we need it the most).
Whatever you reasons for incorporating the practice of meditation in your life may be, one thing is for certain – it brings countless positive effects to us in various ways. My outlook on meditation is this: I see it as a ‘pause’ in your day from everything that’s going on around you, be it work, family, friends, partners, or just external factors that are out of our control; It’s refreshing to have that ‘pause button’ once in a while, as it enables us to reflect on whatever’s going on at that moment and it keeps you calm focused, eliminating the daily stress which we regularly are burdened with.
Healthy nutrition and meditation complement each other very well, and at AllEat, we have countless options for healthier foods with both vegan and vegetarian choices available for you at any time, at the best price.
For the upcoming month, the team here at AllEatApp are obviously excited to celebrate English Wine Week on May 25th.
Here are the best foods that will act as the best accompaniment to specific types of wine, so let us guide you to the perfect meal (obviously involving wine):
1. Sauvignon Blanc This crisp yet light white wine with citrusy undertones is the perfect drink with dishes that are full of flavour, often bringing out the herbs in a dish. Sauvignon pairs particularly well with poultry such as chicken, beef and pork, and seafood including scallops, fatty white fish, oysters, and sushi (don’t forget the wasabi on this one for some serious heat if you’re up for it).
2. Chardonnay Chardonnay can come in different forms, so with that being said, you’ll have to pair it correctly with the right food. Nonetheless, as it’s a decadent wine with sensual body, in which its acidity makes it perfect to cut that richness from cream dishes. Poultry that goes well with this wine includes veal, chicken and pork, whilst for seafood it pairs well with crab, lobster, shrimp and specifically, halibut.
3. Riesling Often very minimally sweet, with an adequate balance of acidity and sweetness, makes for a very food-friendly option – easy. In terms of poultry, it goes well with smoked sausage and duck breast, whilst for seafood includes sea bass and trout; Additionally, if you enjoy the occasional spice, this wine makes a perfect accompaniment to fiery dishes like Thai food.
4. Merlot Often encompassed with juniper and mint undertones, this wine make a perfect pair with meats including grilled meats and steak, and seafood such as grilled fish and tuna. If you feel like ordering an authentic Italian Ragu (Bolognese), this wine would be highly recommended.
5. Cabernet Sauvignon This full-bodied dry wine is perfect for meat. So whip that rib eye steak out for the perfect accompaniment. Also goes well with venison and beef stew, as the oak and tobacco undertones (smoky) are perfect for meat dishes. It also goes well with seafood, more specifically, grilled Ahi tuna. And if you fancy a sweet ending, you should go for that bittersweet chocolate – go on, treat yourself.
In celebration of British Wine Week starting on May 25th, this list should give you an insight as to what food pairs best with what wine. And better yet, if you’re already celebrating, why not do it right with a naughty takeaway with us at AllEat?
We all know the feeling of going back to work on a Monday morning, following a relaxing weekend with your friends and family. We tend to cling on to our beds a little more on the first few days of the weeks, than the last, as the thought of going back to work is, to say the least, daunting. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that your Monday should be mundane and dragging, as you can start the week off right with clear priorities set for the remainder of the week. This is why Mondays are important, as it’s the first weekday in which you set the tone for how the rest of the week is going to go.
In this post, I’m going to be talking about the best foods to takeaway on a Monday, particularly if you’re feeling a bit under the weather and want something to kick start your week in the right way:
1. Pizza The infamous dish originated in Naples has been the backbone of Italian cuisine for centuries, with worldwide recognition that has sparked innovative flavours by in various cultures. It’s safe to say that pizza is the ultimate comfort food – you can have it any time, any day. So if you’re feeling the effects of Monday Blues rubbing off on you (even just a bit), perhaps a traditional Italian pizza would suffice?
2. Burgers We Brits love a quality, juicy burger. How can we resist it, really? There’s something about a burger and the fact that it’s extremely well complemented by fries and a fizzy drink (or even a Strawberry milkshake) that makes this combo such a hit throughout the world. If you want to properly treat yourself, why not add some fiery chicken wings to your order? Bet it’ll leave your taste buds spiced up for a fresh Tuesday morning (perhaps no more morning grogginess?).
3. Chinese Takeaway Yes, yes and YES.
No one can turn down a Chinese takeaway – it’s merely impossible. With so much to choose from, this cuisine makes it simple for people to choose their favourite foods, catering to all dietary needs. What do you feel like having tonight? Spicy food? Sorted. Special House Fried Rice? Right on. Chicken stir fry? Say no more. Whatever it is that you’re craving, AllEat contains an endless list of Chinese takeaways that caters to all types of Chinese food imaginable. We got you.
4. Indian Takeaway Another big ‘Yes’ on our list – Indian food is one that’s going to shock your taste buds…culturally speaking.
With such a rich and diverse history behind Indian cuisine, one can find an array of dishes with roots based in different localities in India, from Lamb Pathia (originated in Gujarat) to the classic Brits’ favourite Chicken Tikka Masala. From the infusion of various and indistinguishable herbs and spices, unique to India’s own heritage, finding a suitable dish to spice up your Monday night will take longer than 10 minutes if you’re browsing through the entire list (so get ready to narrow it down).
5. Thai Takeaway Thai cuisine is one that is so broad in taste and variety, that choosing a dish will prove difficult. Choosing a Thai dish will often require you to go back-and-forth to your browser to check whether the image of a dish is aligned with your expectations of the food. But it is definitely worth it, though. From Pad Thai (Thai style fried noodles) to Pad Krapow Moo Saap (Fried Basil and Pork), our Thai restaurants at AllEat have got you covered with a rich selection of menus for you to browse from, be it soup, rice or noodles.
If you want some inspiration to get you started, I’d recommend Tom Yum Goong (Spicy Shrimp Soup), Som Tum (Spicy Green Papaya Salad), Green Chicken Curry (Gaeng Keow Wan Kai), and Red Curry (Gaeng Daeng) with smooth hints of coconut undertones as the main showstopper of the dish.
6. Fish and Chips The Classic battered Cod fish that is loved and widely appreciated by Brits nationwide. In fact, there are roughly 10,500 specialist ‘Chippy’ shops operating in the UK – impressive number right? These figures are pretty crazy just for some battered fish and potatoes. Nonetheless, this simple, yet iconic British dish is (gladly) consumed by Brits, with an astounding 80% of people visiting fish & chip shops at least once a year – Fair. Have a browse on our app, and we’ll promise you to have a few local Fish and Chip shops in your area, ready to make its way to your doorstep.
Monday Blues are a real thing, there’s no question about it. The day in itself can feel like an arduous, uphill climb that’s never ending. Now imagine, after all that, the thought of buying a set list of ingredients in order to cook for your family and friends, or even just yourself – sounds painful enough, doesn’t it?
Alternatively, AllEat has got you covered with the arduous process of cooking up an entire meal, so that means you can pour yourself that glass of red and put your feet up because, as I said, we at AllEat have got you covered with discounts up to 50% off.
Turkey as a country, is not only geographically beautiful with its enticing rich culture and history, but it’s also very well known for its landscapes. But most importantly, cuisine is a must.
Turkish cuisine came about from an integration and refinement of different cuisines, including Balkan, Eastern European, Middle Eastern, and Central Asia. With its roots derived from the heritage of the Ottoman cuisine, Turkish cuisine is the product of a vast array of specialities from different regions.
With so much to offer, it’s hard to choose what to eat, let alone where to eat Turkish food in London. Worry not, as we’re here to make it easy for you to choose.
These are the best Turkish cuisine London has to offer:
Uludag Charcoal Grill – 5 Vicarage Parade, West Green Road, N15 3BL
With big portions being served, it definitely won’t leave you hungry in the middle of the night (but I’d recommend leaving some space for dessert though). Famous for its kebabs and Lahmacun (Turkish pizza), this place will leave you feeling like you’re dining in a local restaurant in the streets of Antalya.
Levante – 11 Lewis Grove, Lewisham, London, SE13 6BG Known for their awesome Sac Tava (usually accompanied by lavas puff bread) and their juicy and succulent lamb chops, this restaurant’s conveniently situated which means you can start binge watching that show you’ve been thinking about lately and relax, while AllEat does the work for you.
Not to be confused with the previous one, Levante Pide offers fresh, tender, and mouth-watering meats that will make this place your new go-to spot for generous portions and affordable prices. In fact, the ‘Rack of Lamb’ is highly recommended.
If you haven’t already seen it in its name, the food in this place is fire. Located in South London, the mix grill is incredibly abundant in portions and in taste, with an incredible fusion of spices and herbs that your taste buds will thank you for. Not big fan of meat? Have a glance at the vegetarian options which, again, offer an abundant number of choices.
Eyva Turkish Grill & Meze Bar – 9UH, 7-13 Goodmayes Rd, Ilford Adana Kofte, Lamb Shish kebab with rice, and their very own Eyva Special Grill are mouth-watering in ways you can’t imagine. Treat yourself to some flavoursome lamb Kofte after a long, busy weekend on a Sunday whilst watching your favourite film and we’ll get the food sizzling hot over to your doorstep. You’re welcome.
