Best takeaways to conquer the Monday Blues

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.

Bon Appetit.

AllEat Special: British Tomato Week

Tomatoes are the backbone of many dishes around the world since the beginning of time – they’re everywhere. As a nutritious plant food, tomatoes were previously deemed as Solanum lycopersicum, with its roots originated in South America. Be that as it may, as British Tomato Week 2019 sneaks around the corner, here at AllEatApp we’re paying homage to the legendary ingredient that has witnessed centuries of transformation but one thing remains – the quality of the tomato has remained the same, superior in the food chain after all these years. I mean really. You can consume tomatoes in endless ways that it’s so versatile as a food.

Here are our top 5 DIY things you can include tomatoes within your diet:

1. Gazpacho
Perfect for the Summer weather, gazpacho is consumed cold (to be fair, you don’t really cook it in the first place), and it’s incredibly beneficial, nutritionally-wise – rich in minerals, antioxidants, fiber, vitamins C, A and E.

2. Tomato Salsa
Not only used as a dip, you can include it in various dishes such as tacos, burritos, and even fish for a nutritious, light Summer meal. Low in calories, but it contains a good dose of Vitamin C that can help in stabilising blood sugar levels – right, get on it then.

3. Did someone say Bloody Mary?

Packed with vitamins, most notably lycopene, this is linked with enhanced immunity and cancer risk reduction. Add some horseradish and celery for that extra boost of vitamin B6, C, and K.

4. Tomato Puree
From colourful cherry tomatoes to heirloom ones, tomato puree makes an excellent ingredient for a light, yet satisfying bruschetta in a hot Summer’s day lunch. Packed with nutrients, tomato puree on bruschetta makes an excellent choice for a healthy snack.

5.  Homemade Tomato Ketchup
Yep, you heard it correctly. Switch the supermarket’s ketchup and replace it with a healthier, homemade tomato ketchup, only without the chemicals and with all the natural goodness by cutting cholesterol as well as improving eyesight -You’ll thank us later.


If you don’t want the hassle of dirtying up your kitchen, alternatively, you could always order online in the AllEatApp.

The Best Turkish Cuisine London has to offer

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Levante Pide – 187 Lewisham High St, Lewisham, London, SE13 6AA

    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.
  4. Flamin Mangal – 126 Rye Ln, Peckham, London, SE15 4RZ

    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.
  5. 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.
